Before I talk about pineapple tarts, let me share that Belle Belle showed up again. I had put a cardboard box outside with the intention of sending it for recycling.
Next thing I know when I looked outside ....
Belle!!! This mommy was so overjoyed. I nipped outside to look at her.
She is liking the box.
|Notice how comot her fur is and there is dark liquid oozing from her eyes.|
But no. She didn't stay 😪 She disappeared again. My happiness was short lived. It's ok Belle. Whatever will be will be. Mommy is just happy that you came into mommy's life but you have taken a piece of mommy's heart with you. Go in peace Belle. Mommy will never forget you.
I must not be sad. As my friend said "chin up!" and chin up I shall!
Now pineapple tarts. Out of the blue on Sunday, I got a message from this girl who always cannot finish her food. She wanted to pass me some pineapple tarts. Oh! What a lovely surprise. So we agreed to meet at, where else, The Starling.
It was a brief meeting and she passed me this container of pineapple tarts. She is so petite and in her presence, I felt like a giant. No wonder lah you always cannot finish your food and must bring container hah..hah...
The tarts were pretty good except that I found the filling too sweet, though there were other opinions that it was all right and just nice. My partner thought it was all right, surprisingly. I thought he would have found them too sweet like I did. From what I understand, the sugar content must be high in order to preserve it or else it will go bad fast.
It has been ages since I ate pineapple tarts and the first bite transported me back to my childhood days when these tarts were synonymous with Chinese New Year. Many thanks again for taking the trouble to gift me these sweet treats.
