What do you get when you mix a loving baking-extraordinaire/mother/wife with an aspiring/half-baked baker? You get a jolly good baking session! (That wasn't too hard right?) Well, in fact, I (the aspiring baker) got more than what I hoped for during a baking session kindly sponsored by Fathiscakes. Read on to find out what you can expect from a baking session at Bake With Fathis.

Tak Po Dim Sum @ Chinatown Smith Street

What I love about Dim sum is that I can try a variety because of the small portions. The usual suspects that will be on my table would be har gow (steamed prawn dumplings), lotus leaf with glutinous rice, carrot cake and a must-have for me has got to be chicken feet in bean sauce.

I was introduced to Tak Po eons ago and as fate had it, I was in the vicinity one Sunday morning and decided to go back to have dim sum for lunch! My expectation was definitely raised when I saw the small queue waiting to get a table, not forgetting to mention the bustling restaurant was filled to the brim with hungry and hearty patrons.
