After our dinner at the No Signboard, we headed to this place called The Cookie Museum. It's a place that specializes in different varieties of cookies. They have about more than 30 flavors.

They also have a wide selection of teas. In the menu, they have a description for each flavor. I ordered an herbal tea with lemon and ginger. The lady then brought and served our teas in porcelain tea pots, cups and saucers. After a sip of our teas, the lady went to our table again with a trolley filled with airtight containers and inside the containers were miniature cookies as big as a dime.

She then gave us this menu that had all the different flavors of their cookies and they were all available for tasting. We started off with the one with the rose petal. It tasted very delicate and feminine, then after that, we had the cookie with lavender, it was soothing and very relaxing. I could imagine eating it with chamomile tea. Then next came the one with the blueberries, then next, with the lemon and so on... all of them tasted good. I wish they had a sampler box with all the flavors but unfortunately, they only had a box for each flavor at a $42.00 each. Pretty expensive but I guess the packaging and the quality ingredients that they used for the cookies justifies the price.

We didn't stay long in the place. We were only given 45 minutes to enjoy the whole experience as they were already on last call for the evening. I found the Cookie Museum very interesting and unique. I wish they had one like that in Manila.


A couple of weeks, I had a date with Yummy Magazine for a photo shoot.  We did about five recipes and although it was tiring to be doing them in one day, I have to say that I had fun too.  It was a challenge to be working on a time table, making sure that we still had enough natural light for the food shots.  

While David was taking pictures of the Yummy baked goodies, I took out my camera to take pictures as well including the crew in action. So here's what's coming out next on the Hey Home Baker column of Yummy Magazine... 

Banana Chocolate Chip Bread,  Peach Crostata
Self Saucing Chocolate Pudding,
Dayap Cake,

and the famous Banoffee.  So don't forget to get your copy of Yummy Magazine every month!

It's a seafood dinner for us tonight at NO SIGNBOARD. We were craving for the chili crab so we decided to get a group together for a crab night.  We ate at the branch in Esplanade and I was so surprised that it was a full house. It was a good thing Evita made reservations.

So here's what we ordered...Steamed Bamboo Clams with Garlic, Stir Fried Tomiao, Sambal Kangkong,

My favorite - Cereal Prawn, Fried Mantou, Chili Crab,

and Crab with Spring Onion and Ginger.  

Okay, here's the verdict, we found the Chili Crab too spicy.  We couldn't enjoy eating it so we ordered the crab with the spring onion and ginger. The other items that we ordered tasted just like how we imagined it.  So we ate slowly, savored the food and enjoyed the company.  We were so stuffed but we still decided to make another stop for dessert.

One thing I like about going back to Singapore is the food!  I was glad that during this dinner, we were able to fill a table for 15.  We were quite a big group but that was a good thing because it meant that we could order more items on the menu as well. 
We started off with a Peking duck that you roll in pancakes with spring onion, cucumber and the duck sauce. Then the salt and pepper squid arrived, then the duck noodles.
Then my favorite, the double Cooked Yard Long Beans, The Yang Chow Fried Rice and the Sweet and Sour Pork.

Then another batch items arrived... the Spicy Spareribs, Chicken with Cashew and Broccolli braised with seafood.

Everybody soon became quiet as the food arrived. Seemed like we were all concentrating on the food, making sure not to miss on anything. I would've loved to be able to order dessert but I really didn't have space anymore for anything sweet.

I went home with a smile on my face because dinner was good! Glad I was able to eat there again.
