Buzz!ng with Le Couple Toy

Archive for October 2012

Been feeling rather moody, grumpy and tired today. Although told ToyBoy I didn’t feel like cooking dinner, but suddenly just had a huge craving for chocolate and I remembered this recipe that I’ve used before. Its a very moist chocolate chip cupcake and I can’t remember where I found this recipe.

So whilst ToyBoy is cooking us dinner (boiled soup, stir fry cabbage and pan fry burger pattie), I made us chocolate cupcakes for dessert. Perfect team work isn’t it? :p I know, our dinner isn’t exactly gourmet, nor does it fit to any theme. We were walking around BIG at Publika, saw the beef patties and was really tempted. Then ToyBoy decided he wanted soup. So he got some vegetables and ikan bilis (dried anchovies) to make our chinese version of instant soup.

Here’s a shot of ToyBoy busy at work with our dinner.


My cravings satisfied. 🙂




This post is way overdue. Barkery Oven participated in SPCA’s World Animal Day on the 23rd September. Boy, was it tiring. But, at the same time fun. It was held at Desa Park City which is a dog friendly park.

This is my table all set up waiting for people to start arriving. Fortunately, didn’t have to wait long. 🙂

Naturally, we brought Miki there to mingle and make friends. However, be warned that Desa Park City park is full of fleas! Miki came home scratching non-stop and we found fleas on him. The poor thing. Luckily we stopped scratching after a shower.

This is our first customer. They bought our Cheesy Carrot Muffin.. 🙂

All in all, we had a great time, although I was really tired out from the baking. The crowd was very different from our previous event at Jaya One. They asked A LOT of questions. Perhaps one day I’ll compose all the questions and have the answered on my Barkery Oven page. hmm…definitely an idea worth thinking about coz almost everyone asked the same questions.

Next week, we’ll be at another event selling our treats. This time, it’ll be at White Box@Publika. Air conditioned. *yay*



This is a photo only post. Nothing much to write about. Played around with the effects on Picasa. Decided to make all the pictures have a 60’s feel. Retro. I like!! 🙂

We were in Hong Kong in August. Weather was perfect. Ate a lot. Had my fill of luncheon meat, egg and rice. Oh and egg tarts too!  yummmm….

Day out on the junk.

Clubbing at Lan Kwai Fong

The boys looking gaya. Again.
