Reminiscing from past visits, my mom remembered well of this dessert place located at the back of the markets. A variety of asian desserts that are similar to Chat Thai’s but you can get them for a much cheaper price.
There was a variety of delicious-looking sweets to choose from. One that did not slip my attention was the colorful jellies floating on coconut milk with bananas.
Sticky rice had never been tastier when you mix it with coconut milk. The soggy and sticky taste you get from eating this dish was just intriguing.
My favorite was this one. The yellow ping-pong looking balls that were so bouncy and soft. I have no idea what’s inside, but I guessed it might have been grounded yellow beans. Then again it was sweet. The balls were drenched in coconut milk and ginger.
The October Birthdays
My 17th birthday cake. Miki Ojisan No Mise’s fine cheesecake creation with strawberry jam (only the second layer is cake, the rest is icing). Simply magnificent and it is truly the cake of my dreams. I especially loved the peonies on top, I had personally requested for peonies because of my inspiration, Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl.
My father’s 46th birthday cake from Pasadena, given by my mother’s sister as a birthday present. Since my father runs a family corrugated box firm and manufacturing paper, the cake resembled his work. The dollar bills were extra superb decorations. The labels on the boxes shows my dad’s customers. The cake was actually a special diabetic lapis cake.
This one is from Miki Ojisan No Mise and is a Lapis Surabaya cake. This was given to my father from his sisters. I must say, this cake is BEYOND, the workers with the uniforms, my father’s small figurine (and his white hair is visible) and the blackberry and computer on top of the desk.
Overall, the cakes stunned everyone at the party and left wows. I must admit, Miki Ojisan No Mise and Pasadena had done so well.

Scrambled egg with mushrooms, potatoes, sourdough and baked beans
The Chai Latte and Ricotta Hotcakes were uber good! I loved the ricotta puffy crust and the berries.

Yum-cha/Dim Sum Time
Seven stomach-growling predators pouncing on one of the best Chinese food, DIM SUM. With a very very fierce appetite, Fooshion heads on for lunch at Sky Phoenix, Westfield CBD.
So there were seven of us, and once we were seated we did not hesitate to quickly choose the dumplings from the dumpling tray. One of us had to represent all of us in communicating with the lady waitress who was only fluent in speaking Chinese, the rest of us gave the thumbs up and downs. And so, we all started to dig in.

Deep fried wontons with shrimp
Mango pancake with sweet fluffy cream filling and mango cuts for dessert plus…
There were other dumplings such as Hakau (steamed shrimp in flour), Lo ma kai (fried raddish) and Wu Kok (taro dumpling). Overall, it was a tasty lunch but I’ve had better dumplings. Soon Fooshion will go back to its home country, Indonesia and watch out for amazing food-porn shoots that will chuck your eyes out ;)
