Chin Mee Chin Confectionery

One of my favourite kaya bun places. These buns are soft and somewhat dense, which I think is a good way to enjoy kaya. I don’t really like the fluffy types because I feel like I am eating air. They are open everyday except Mondays. They often run out of buns on Sunday afternoons because they don’t want to have left over buns which will not be sold on Monday. You still can get the flat square breads (like the Gardenia types) if the buns run out. I prefer the flat ones because they toast them longer.

Apart from kaya buns, Chin Mee Chin offers cream buns, Swiss Rolls, chiffon type cakes and cupcakes. The cupcakes are tiny little things that come in several different flavours:- Chocolate icing, almond, and plain. Other than these, CMC doesn’t offer much else. People still flock here nonetheless because this place is just so old school. It brings back memories of a simpler time. My father has been coming here for more than 30 years and knows the staff well. He was once even interviewed on TV when they happened to be doing a documentary on CMC!Chin Mee Chin Kaya Buns

Is it just me or do you think that there seems to be many ice-cream shops popping up all over the place? There are so many in the East Coast area that you can almost bet a dollar that there’s one down every street you turn! Take for example the Marine Parade Community Centre. What used to be Cristofori the Music School, is now Scoop of Art! It’s no art school though, it’s an ice-cream shop! Singapore’s first Gelato & Art café no less!

According to their website, Scoop of Art gives everyone the opportunity to experiment with a wide variety of Gelato flavours & Art & Craft. No right or wrong. Just pure freedom of expression in a comfortable & delicious environment!

Scoop of Art - Ice Blended Coffee

I went to check it out a few Saturdays ago when I was consumed by a sudden parchness of the throat. I didn’t want ice-cream though, so we ordered an iced coffee and a coke. The coffee was OK. I guess their expertise is in the ice-cream.

I don’t think I should comment on the ice-cream, since I didn’t have any. They don’t have aas large a selection as compared to some other ice-cream parlours. However, they do have some interesting flavours like Mars Bar & Sea Salt which I’d like to try out some day. Other sweeties you can have there include brownies, crumble and waffles. Interestingly, when I was there most people were having lunch because Scoop of Art also serves hot food like pastas.
