Review : Maison Kayser

Long at last I managed to make a visit to Maison Kayser located at the basement of the spanking new Scotts Square.

A few of us managed to try a couple of breads and pastries. Glad to report the former fared much better than the latter.

In particular, the walnut and raisin loaf was studded with plenty of those, had a crisp crust and a nutty, soft 'mie'. I loved it and finished the entire thing in a day. Wish it could be less expensive; it costs $ 3.40 per loaf.

Between the chocolate eclair and the lemon tart, we loved the chocolate mousse filling but not the thick choux pastry; loved the tangy and thick curd from the tart but not the flat/soft tart shell crust.

I will be back to give the croissants a try. They looked really good!

A couple more visits later, I also tried the turmeric bread with hazelnuts, pain campagne, yuzu bread, Gorgonzola with walnut and the honey orange ekme.

I didn't quite like the orange ekme for it had a dense doughy texture, and the orange peel bits was salty and tasted like Chinese "kiam kiam" mandarin orange peel.

Yuzu and Gorgonzola cheese breadd had similar density and texture of the pain campagne. Nice crumbs and neither too dense nor fluffy.

Turmeric bread was interesting. It was studded with hazelnuts, had a nice soft and fluffy mie and possessed a slight savory slant. Very good to eat on its own.

i think you featured exactly the items i tried from Maison Kayser, quite like their choc eclair, saw pistachio the other day which i didn't try (can't wait), i like the (comparatively) reasonable pricing here and quality compared to others on the same par.

Yuzu bread and the Walnut and Raisins are my fave!!! Everytime I tar pao them home, I will leave the place with a big grin but a lighter pocket. Ha ha. Try the pistacho and apricot tart. Nice....

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 iherb.com.  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!

[Mommy Post] Accidental Booster Alert!

If you are a breastfeeding mommy or pumping mommy, you will understand when you find a milk booster, it's like striking lottery, right?
So my hub has actually been drinking this V-Soy multigrain for quite some time, so it has a regular appearance in our fridge.  I tried it but found it to be too sweet on so I never drank it after.

One fine day, I had a small play date at my place, and I served this drink to the mommies (because all rejected my first beverage of choice - coffee) to them.  One of them reported that she had higher output and that struck up a lot of other mommies' interest to try (including myself!).  Glad to report, it does help me, but not exponentially as I still don't take a lot of it, just a small cup.   What a small cup did for me - I take a shorter time to pump the same volume and at sometimes I do get about 10-15ml more.  I reckon if I do drink a bigger cup of it, it would be even better?  But no, I didn't choose to do that because it is very cal…
