iPhone 4 Ad with Jane Lynch and Kassem G

Singapore was mentioned in the iPhone 4 ad by Lynch.

I was lost once too but not in Redwood city. It was in Singapore and it wasn’t in a bar. It was in the Parliament underground pleasure lair and I think you know where I am going with this.

I was caned … hic.

Truffs – The Chocolate Atelier

Indrawati at Truffs

*atelier – a studio especially for an artist or designer

Atelier is definitely is a good description of Truffs. A modernistic yet cosy kitchen greets you when you step into Truffs where the owners are going about creating their luscious truffles or chocolate cake. On the right hangs a large wicker ball lamp.

I first heard about Truffs on Camemberu and told myself I just had to try one of these. Fortunately for me, I was having tea at Red Star nearby and decided to pop by to get a box of Truffles for Lynn.

Indrawati was alone in the atelier and curiosity pipped my interest. I asked Indrawati the difference between 66% truffles and 70% truffles, a mere 4%. She smiled and brought out a container of the different types of truffles for me to try. Mind you the samples are not tiny cut pieces but actual size truffles. I tasted them and decided Lynn would love the sweeter 55% truffles.

A box of 9 truffles is priced at S$24 while 2 boxes would set you back at S$43. Each truffles is hand-made with rich choclate ganache orb envelope in a cocoa-dusted thin chocolate shell. Pop one of these truffles in your mouth and I assure you will go ‘Mmmmmm….’ with the choclate ganache slowly melting at the back of your tongue and slipping down your throat.
