Yay or Nay?

Macaroons
Yay or nay? Naaayyy!!! I don't love macaroons albeit they really are delicious and come in an insane range of flavors. Yes a lot of people love macaroons, doesn't mean I have to love them as well. Well okay, maybe there are some particular macaroons that I like... the ones from pâtisserie Sadaharu Aoki and Pierre Hermé I like them both! But Ladurée, not so much. Maybe a lot of people going crazy for Ladurée because they haven't tried the ones from pâtisserie Sadaharu Aoki and Pierre Hermé. In Bali, there was this small macaroon shop that I also quite like, it used to be inside the Metis restaurant. But the few weeks ago I went there and found that the macaroon shop is out of business, oh dear. In conclusion, I don't go gaga over macaroons except they're from pâtisserie Sadaharu Aoki and Pierre Hermé (:

Cupcakes
Yay or nay? Ehm... not a fan. If someone give cupcakes to me, I'll eat one. But I won't buy cupcakes myself. Too thick icing, too sugary and the flavors don't work on me. So, nay. 

Green velvet cupcakes = perfect treat for St. Patty’s Day. Why I picked this photo? Because my birthday = St. Patty's Day lol 
Apple Strudle (Apfelstrudle)
Yay or nay? Yaaaayyy!!! (: In Indonesia, I always buy apple strudle from Corica and Domino's Pizza. And of course, at the annual Christkindl-markt event at Hotel Aryaduta Jakarta.  They're so gooooood! Corica, originally from Perth is my favorite since the first time I tasted one back in 2004-ish. Soft pastry and flaky to the fork with perfectly sweetened custard along with with soft, sweetened apples. Ugh now I'm craving for it. Blah. I. Want. Corica. Right. Now.

Yoghurt
Yay or nay? Well... I gotta say, yay. HOWEVER, I somehow do not enjoy drinking yoghurt, both plain and flavored ones. I only love frozen yoghurt and my favorite places to get froyo are Sour Sally and JCool. Red Mango in Indonesia not so much, because they don't have mochi topping.

Getting my froyo at J.Cool

Will always love plain froyo with longan and mochi toppings (:


Magnum Ice Cream
Yay or nay? Well I only love the vanilla ice cream, but the so-called Belgian chocolate covering the vanilla ice cream? Nope.

White Chocolate
Yay or nay? Naaaayyy... too sweet. I love milk chocolate with cashew nuts / biscuits / macadamia nuts / hazelnuts - favorite brand: Hawaiian Host, Lindt, Godiva, Valrhona, Choceur - Rahm Mandel, Nestle and Milka.
