Le Royale at Canele

J and I went back to Canele yesterday to try the other tempting desserts. Luckily, this time around, my choice of Royale was a delicious one! All the layers (chocolate mousse 66%, hazelnut feuilletine, almond success, chocolate genoise with rum), put together, created this surprisingly light dessert that was easy to down and went well with my jasmine tea. Thehazelnut feuilletine, though lacking in the nutty flavour, added a welcomed crunch to every bite. The cake was not overwhelmingly sweet and I personally liked it that way.

As I expected, there should be some standard to any Les Amis establishments and I am glad we gave it another shot. There are still so many other untried temptations I am already trying to find an excuse to go back again.

i had a lovely earl-grey flavoured cake at canele a few weeks back; can't remember the name of it though... i think it was in the shape of a small oval tin-can, with a slighty crunchy crust surrounding the confectionery, and a touch of berry jam in the middle.

absolutely divine!

How do you juggle it all :( ?

I just feel that I don't have enough time - for the husband and  much less for myself!

During the workday, I make sure I try to go home on time so I could spend a couple of hours with A, and put him to bed. Then it's time to have my last pump at about 9pm before I just want to  zone out and crash.  The boy wakes up at least 3 times ever since his last leap when he learnt how to stand. Additionally, he fell really ill for the first time (i.e. antibiotics).  Prior to that, he cries 1-2 times but easily soothed with pacifier or with some milk. Because of these frequent interrupted sleep, the man and I took turns to fall ill as well, and it is difficult to recover. I still have the head colds and occasionally coughing spells.

On weekends, our schedule revolves around family events, and then I try to plan so that A can try to get a nap or 2 as well as to plan our routes throughout the day so I would end up somewhere comfortable to pump when I needed to.  Often the nap part fails,…

OOOh, new flavour!

I have been eating Quest nutrition protein bars for years! I love the taste and they are less guilty than the real deal.  The flavours are pretty spot on and they are available at  I recently shared about this site as well.

I eat at least one of them a day to satisfy that sweet tooth. My favourites so far are the cinnamon roll and smores.  But I'm excited that a new flavour has been launched and can't wait for the Oatmeal Chocolate Chip flavour to arrive!
