Saturday of friends - Narcissism is Necessary

Saturday of friends

Yay weekend is here!

# – Dressed for a hot day.


Dress with T motifs from Bangkok. Sunglasses from Religion. Bag from Longchamp. Sandals from Ipanema Gisele Bundchen.


Had a nice girls only brunch with Ee Laine in Bangsar.

# – Banana leaf rice yums.


Hung out for a bit then came home to make more Hokkaido chiffon cakes to bring to Ee Laine’s mooncake festival house party.

Doubled up the recipe and tweaked the sugar content. Hubs said the previous batch wasn’t sweet enough.  This batch did taste better than yesterday’s attempt I must say.

# – More hokkaido chiffon cakes!


Great food (paella and yakitori from Grill Sargent, noodles from Ee Laine’s mom and potato salad from Ee Laine) and great company. Happy to see the gang. It’s been a while!

Forgot my phone so no pictures :(

    Kimberly, I dunno how you manage, but you appear to be quite the fashionista.

    Everything on you, at least what you post, looks great. You have mastered the art of assembling ensembles for most every day!

    Does your cirlce of friends consider you as a fashion trend setter?

    Some very appealing food in this post!

    It may be hot where you live, but here at 42.5N it’s a comfy 9C!

    More good eats please!

    Hi Kim,

    I used that recipe as well. Just wondering if your hokkaido chiffon cupcakes came out light, soft and fluffy? Mine was too densed (wasn’t fluffy like chiffon cakes). Was wondering if its because of the amount of cake flour coz i saw another recipe which uses less..

      Hi Joce,

      Mine was pretty fluffy actually, the recipe was very good for me that i made it 3 times. My only complaint is that some people might find it too egg-y. Did you sift the flour? Was your meringue okay? Hope you didn’t overmix the batter?

      I used plain flour instead of cake flour too. Do try with less flour…I don’t think it will affect the cake much.
