Creme Brulee and A Cup of Earl Grey, Please
Salam. Do you love puddings? I do. What about creme brulee, then? It doesn't belong to the sisterhood of puddings, yes true. But I'd like to regard it as such, still. ^_^
The first time I've ever heard of it was when I watched Julia Robert's movie "My Best Friend's Wedding" quite some time ago.
Hurmm... So much of a description, right? But it took me more than a decade afterwards to actually taste it. Guess I've always been a "Jello-Person" anyway. Gotta know where I belong, eh?
My 1st ever creme brulee was from Deedee's cozy Coffee-House nearby my office. Home-made by Deedee herself. Da Bomb to the max, I tell you. Can't wait to help myself there after Eid holiday.
But what greeted me at Shangri-La KL last few nights was a total different version altogether.
Never in a million years I'd be able to finish the whole darn plate. Not even a quarter of it, in fact.
The banana went well with the entire recipe, loved it. But the mango cream was a bit too sour for me. Nice presentation, of course, that was undeniable. Still, not my cup of tea.
The Earl Grey tea was nice, though. And I really loved the red cup and saucer, so very cute.
I was quite sleepy already then, what more with the live band at the lounge playing jazzy lazy songs of yesterdays.
So much for the cravings of Deedee's creme brulee, eh?
Anyways, thanks for reading this and being with me still. Love you for that.
Enjoy your final week of Ramadan. Until next time, sayonara.
Much Love, TPJ.
