Lapis Legit Pandan from Holland Bakery, Jakarta, Indonesia

Lapit Legit Pandan from Bentolicious
A gadzillion thanks to Lia of Bloglicious for bringing me this delicious cake all the way from Indonesia! I am so touched beyond belief.

Have you ever met your fellow bloggers before?
At first, I was a bit weary about meeting anyone, since I am an antisocial bitch. I am an online person who always try my very best to avoid any human interaction (scary, right?). I thought bloggers are supposed to stay behind the yellow line? Whatever happened to that? I guess it's changed. Now bloggers meet people too. And not all of us are antisocial, only me. ^_^'

After meeting a few Hong Kong tweeps, I started to enjoy meeting people that I normally interact with online, and I am very happy that now I can even call some of them my close friends! Yippie!

Sometimes, you've been stalking them online so much, you felt as if you've already known the person inside out. From her tweets and her online persona, I knew that Lia is absolutely lovely. We had a blast hanging out.

Now the cake.
Lapit Legit Pandan from Bentolicious
This is something that I can't get in Hong Kong.
OK, there are some packaged ones available in Indo shops, but they comparing them to this? It's like comparing flavorful, moist, rich, fragrant and buttery cake to...a piece of cardboard (I am sorry!). A few slices of this cake, cups of hot jasmine tea, and a good book. That'd make a perfect lazy weekend afternoon tea.

Happy almost weekend, y'all!

PS. Lia, I can never thank you enough! ^_^

Hi there,
Thanks for visiting my humble ol' blog. I use Canon 7D with 50mm f//1.4 or 35mm f/2 lens for most home cooked shots, and sometimes I use Olympus PEN for dining out shots :)

How kind of Lia...:)! I might probably meet up with Lia too when I am in Jakarta in the next few weeks. This would be the first time I meet another blogger in real life, how exciting...;)!!

Oh thanks. I had heard of spekkoek, but didn't realise it was similar.

Looks very nice :D
