Celebration Cookie, Millie’s Cookies

Me and my friend from work had a little pact whereby when we made our first ‘placements’ as recently promoted Consultants, then we would treat ourselves to a giant cookie from Millies.  Having seen then in the window of their store of London Bridge many times, this offered an incentive to do well and reap […]

Mr Pretzels

Oh man, I can’t resist these tasty things.  Firstly, it’s the smell of them being cooked that wafts about the Westfield Centre and it’s that type of smell that you cannot help but salivate from.  Secondly, they are soooo good.  Before, my favourite pretzels were from Ditsch but now, I’ll never look back.  Now, it’s […]

BBQ Fried Dough

Is there any way that these might not be bad for my skin…? I feel as though I am feeding my spots, making them inflate further. If you’re wondering what they are, see the title… *eating with dread but unable to stop* >_< I’m back at home at the moment, so there’s loads of snacks […]

Real Food Market, Southbank

My sister had come to visit one weekend and we went to watch Le Cirque Invisible at Queen Elizabeth Hall. In true Chan style, we were cutting it fine to make it on […]

Hema – mini stroopwafels

Ying came back from her trip to Amsterdam with treats! These are amaaaaazing. So buttery, so sweet, so delicious.  They’re a smaller version of the ones you see in coffee shops and German markets.  In a smaller form, they appear less deadly until your teeth start crying.  But so devine and great with a cuppa!
