What I want…

When I was in Kuching over a week ago, my cousin, Lindy, gave me these – Scottish all butter shortbread, Royal Edinburgh Brand…

Scottish shortbread

She knew how much I loved them – well, who wouldn’t, after reading all my posts on them? Hehehehehe!!! Actually, she gave me another packet of shortbread fingers of the same brand as well, but I had eaten those all up before I remembered that I had not taken a photo of them.

This brand is definitely cheaper than Walkers’ and around the same price as Mcvities’ and is just as nice, or perhaps even nicer. Well, it claims to have had over 50 years of baking excellence…so one can definitely expect it to be good.

These are the petticoat tails…

…and at over RM8.00 a box, it certainly is a steal. You can never get anything from Walkers’ at that price. Just open the box and you can actually smell the rich buttery fragrance…and just one bite of it will send you to seventh heaven, believe you me!

And last Saturday, my ex-student, Xavier, dropped by my house. He’s such a nice boy and never fails to remember me wherever he goes. Before there was Secret Recipe in Sibu, when he was in Miri, he bought me a few slices of their cheesecake all the way from there to give to me. Well, he’s back from Shah Alam on a two-week break and this time around, he gave me these…

Chocolate truffles 1

Truffles – nope, not those mushrooms that are worth their weight in gold, but chocolates made into a shape similar to that of the mushroom…

They’re very nice – cappuccino flavour…but a bit too sweet for me, so I can just take one at a time…sparingly. LOL!!!

Well, thanks so much, Lindy, for the shortbread…and Xavier for the chocolate truffles. They’re really very nice. Ummmm…..!!! LOL!!!
