Today I had steamboat buffet lunch with some friends who had retired. We would try to meet for lunch at least twice a year. Lunch was at Coca, Takashimaya. Though it was a buffet, we couldn't eat as much as we wanted - you know the eating capability and capacity reduce as one gets older! ;P
But eating wasn't the main agenda. It was more to catch up with one another and perhaps sometimes to reminisce about old times.
After lunch, we went window shopping and I strayed into Kinokuniya Bookstore. I made a beeline for the food and drinks book section. Shelves of cooking and baking books were beckoning to be touched, to be held, to be browsed and to be bought. I spent about an hour and a half looking around. And with very eager hands, I flipped the pages of the books.
To cut the story short, I bought 4 baking books and they cost me $176.97!!
Check out the chocolate! Absolutely decadent!
These books will be my bedtime stories and I'll be dreaming sweet dreams! :)
I am looking forward to trying out the recipes and shall be posting them.
