Paris Baguette!

Bonjour! Today… I wanna share with you a very very yummy post!! BUT before that.. just a quick intro to CLEO Career Lab 2013!

It was a pretty wow seminar before it starts! Grand ballroom, warm lights, theatre seating arrangement, refreshments, Ettusais! & then just few minutes after it starts… I started to get bored.. Maybe this kinda talk is not for me.

20130901-003137.jpg

There were a few guest of honor.. Like Jeannie from Tracyeinny, Gina Romero from Athena, Jasmine Ang from Ettusais! They shared very interesting stories but I still feel that it’s just stories. Kinda hard to relate to if you want to start your own business. They do give “tips” but are just very surface tips. Overall, It’s probably just a good story sharing session and introducing Ettusais product (mainly).

Ettusais makeup demo took up almost half the time… Good thing is, at least it’s not boring. When you went to 1 or 2 this kinda makeup demo talk, you’ll start to get bored. Most of them teach the same thing. *Yawn*

By 4pm,  we’re done and refreshment were ready. I didn’t Q for them as I already can’t wait to leave…. Leave to where??

The Q was a bit messy but fret NOT! You’ll know that you’re in the right Q when the staff serve you! Hahaha!!

20130901-001845.jpg

Ther have very interesting cake! I nearly gonna grab each a pcs but…. I’ve got limited vitamin M (M for money)! So I’m forced to choose just a few!

20130901-001900.jpg

Croissant is my fave!!!! In here, you tell ’em what you want and they packed for you!

So what have I brought home after explore this new cafe? LOTS!! I spent almost S$60 just to buy bakery goods?!! The worst part… It’s month end.. Pay wasn’t IN yet!

20130901-001925.jpg

The Royal Pudding! Mango & Strawberry!

20130901-002223.jpg

I ate the mango on the same day!! Nice! Sweet on top and a little bitter below. But if you had “mix” well, it taste perfect!

20130901-001936.jpg

& next…….. the CAKESSS!!

20130901-001946.jpg

I bought Mango Napoleon, Haha Family, Cheese cake (I forgot its name!) & Oh My Baby Crepe (I think so)!!

20130901-002152.jpg

Mango Napoleon was ok for me but too buttery for my boyfriend! The mango cream is to bland and buttery to eat it alone. A bite of the pastry and a bit of the cream+mango makes it well blend! But there’s one thing I just have to say.. Why is it a peanut must be there!!?

20130901-002253.jpg

This one of the special, i guess.. I think it’s called Oh-My Baby Crepe! This cake is mainly strawberry and crepe! My mom ate this and she said was nice.. i only tried one bite and .. AGREE! It was NICE!! hahahaha! You can try this next time too…20130901-002304.jpg

The Haha Family Chocolate cake! I didn’t get to eat this! It was chocolate cake and…. FULLSTOP. Hahahaha!!! Till I get to try it again, you guys can just share with me how you find it, if you had tried!

20130901-002244.jpg

This is Cheese cake. It has a very nice french name which obviously I had forgotten! The outer layer of white cream is just cream and icing sugar. The white cream sandwiched between the cake is the cheese… If you are a cheese cake lover, You can’t miss this!!

20130901-001957.jpg

& I’m a croissant lover!! HOW CAN I MISS THIS!!! 7 minis for S$3.50 I think!

20130901-002128.jpg

They are mad yummy!!!!! You just gotta try it!!! Even my boyfriend said it was nice! Sorry mom! None for you because I ate them all (well, mostly!)

20130901-002022.jpg

This is the Honey Honey bread… Where has it gone??? I didn’t get to eat this.. Probably it’s already in someone’s stomach (or even digested already!)..

20130901-002046.jpg

Eat tart for my boyfriend! I like the danish “skin”! But again, I didn’t get to eat it! Tsk!!

20130901-002111.jpg

This is ONE GIANT ROLL! Bacon Roll.. I thought it was just plain bread wrapped with bacon! I didn’t get to see a clearer view of it when ordering.. Everything happen too FAST!

20130901-002320.jpg

But actually it’s not PLAIN! There’s eggie mayo!! Wow~!! Me like!!

Well, to summarize it all, Paris Baguette is definitely one cafe I’ll go AGAIN and AGAIN!! Thankfully I read about it from Lifestyle and Beauty Blog of a Singaporean – Paris Baguette Korean Bakery Review! Else I think I might have just missed it!!! Have you noticed, her name is Audrey too! Heee!!!

To end this post, I’ll like to share something I saw online and thought it was quite interesting!

20130901-002348.jpg

Are you guilty of this  Hahaha! I think I am somehow somewhat erm… *run away* But don’t strp your phone to my forehead.. I don’t want you to start poking/tapping my forehead!! Man~!

Been wanting to find out which is a better magazine and WOW.. both are equally good! However for me now, i would think Cleo is more suitable for me as every page is so interesting to me. Perhaps when i have my first kid, SWW will be my kind magazine~! I mean.. at least now i wun need to know what baby product is good or which school should my kids go…. >_<

Alright, so now… some warm up! I scanned a few pages from CLEO article and decided to share them with you.. and which one to share first… OF COURSE my hobby first.. NAIL POLISH!

These are really very interesting article.. not too wordy and straight to the point.. but.. if u need more solution, probably u need to do some googling work.. nothing comes easy and that includes beauty~
