Cupcake heaven - Lilicup

Anyone who knows me, knows that I am crazy for cupcakes. I have a sweet tooth and can down 3-5 cupcakes at one go with no real effort involved. Unfortunately Luxembourg is not a suitable place to live for a cupcake lover. I have found limited places that offer cupcakes and the supply is not steady. In one lifestyle store you can get them every Tuesday afternoon and then there was the amazing cafe Wenge and when they sold cupcakes I thought:"this is it!" but alas! they stopped selling them. I really need to ask them, why.

The closest good cupcake bakery that I have found is in Brussels. It is a 2 hour drive that I am happy to do just to get my 'fix'. Also, it does not hurt, that the place looks lovely, the cupcakes are delicious and the waiters sweet (see photo below ;)).

The place is called Lilicup and you can check out their website here. I recommend checking the website before going to the bakery as I have driven (twice!) to Brussels, to find out that they have closed for the day for xyz reason.

Here are some photos (done in 2010) to give you some flavour of the place:

Doesn't this just make your mouth water?

My food list for Singapore

I lived in Singapore for 4 months in 2003. I loved it. I loved all of it. But most of all, I loved the food.

So, for never to forget here is my 'MUST EAT' list for Singapore. For some I have photos but otherwise, in no particular order:


bak kut teh (bone marrow soup thing)

Chicken rice

Roti prata

kaya toast (the breakfast food)
fried kway tiaw (noodles)
mee goreng
popiah (like a spring roll)
rojak (veggies, apple and other stuff in sweet/curry sauce with crushed peanuts)
claypot rice
cendol (shaved ice)
ice kachang (another type of shaved ice)

singapore sling (at the Raffles hotel)

durian (only for the brave)

My absolute favourite of all times is chili crab !!! You will have to go to the east coast to get good chili crab, or try the no signboard restaurant. I know other people prefer pepper crab, so better try both!

It comes served in a dish like this. Covered in chili sauce
You will just have to dig in. By the end you will be
covered in the sauce up to your elbows.

But where do you get all this delicious food? No, not in some fancy restaurant. The food courts! An amazing creation of food heaven on earth.

You can get delicacies like this:

A happy customer

Basic and perfect
