Tampopo Deli: Best Cream Puff

In this world, not everything that happen will be bad. And I believe some things occur in one way or the other, for a reason. It must be fate that I get to know Cream Puff (C). I remember vividly the first time we met; she was sitting in a corner, dainty, and oh yes, stunning. I hesitated a while, then with the corniest pick up line that I can think of, I approached her:

“Hello, my name is Brad. I couldn’t help but noticed you when I walked by just now, and it will be such a regret if I didn’t say hi. I know this may sound superficial, but you are really pretty, can I get to know you?”

With that, we became lovers. It’s almost like an affair actually, I mean you don’t go around telling everyone about your great love. We are friends, we are lovers, we are soul-mates, we are life companions; she’s the half apple that I have been searching for.

I love you because I know you will always be there, whenever I’m feeling down and unhappy, when we are seeking for some thrill, when I need nobody, nobody, but you. I love you because you never fail to make me smile, our kisses are the best thing ever in this world, there’s nothing so magical, and wonderful. I love you, because I love you.

Give me a cream puff, and I will love you forever.

Forever, till the far side of forever? That was before I met Mont Blanc (M). I’m not sure if this is what you call destiny, but I’m very sure our meeting was a beautiful accident that was always meant to happen. In every way, she was very different from C. If C is summer, M will be winter. The former is full of passion, warmth and love, but the latter is the exact opposite; she’d keep me at an arm’s length and push me away, she’d ignore me whenever I tried to get to know her. Maybe this is why I’m so attracted to her. Man always like to chase, the things that we cannot have – all the more we will try and get it.

I shouldn’t be telling you all this, now it makes me feel guilty to C. I’m sure I told you this beforeC is incredible, like really really incredible. She kissed me lightly on the lips, and before I knew it, I swallowed her in a mouthful. I’m not sure if there’s anything on this world that can make me so happy.

But I like M too. I knew of her existence from a long time back, but somehow, she never interest me even though there were countless of opportunities for us to get acquainted. Her chestnut cream, was surprisingly, not as sweet as I thought, and somehow I’m grateful that the chestnut taste was quite subtle as I have never been a fan of the nut. Oh, the dilemma. I like Mont Blanc dessert too.

In between our love triangle, there’s Matcha Chiffon. I like her, in a platonic way. You don’t believe in platonic friends? Neither do I. But we seem to be able to get along very well, to begin with, she’s light, moist and airy in all the right places, and I did mentioned that she’s matcha right?

With this Matcha chiffon, will you please forgive me?

cant help but commment..
awww.sounds like a sweet triangle love affair.. but i am worse, i like anything so long its desserts.. wei xiao bao more like it..
the must do weekend list now includes:

Cedele carrot cake
and .. Tampopo..


bradd! Tampopo is love! I always feel so torn when I go there everything’s so yummy! And those to-die-for creampuffs mmm :)

hahaha you and your scandalous stories!

hhaaa it has been awhile since u blogged like this! interesting! just wondering if you really used the pick-up line! HAHAHA.

that’s it. you have convinced me that i need to reignite my passion for M & C, both who i’d neglected of late due to late nights cosying up to work at the office. that’s my dirty weekend liaisons sorted!

Camemberu: keep guessing! see u later

poisonivy: thanks, even if it’s just one word nice, also must leave your comment all the time yeah

Shirin: Don’t worry S, it’s not forceful at all, when u come back, u can have all the cream puffs u want : )

The little Teochew: you watched Korean drama too? looks like we have a new topic tonight! hahahah when are u going to make mont blanc for me?

aiwei: Don’t you like desserts? Stop resisting!

ah bui bui: just leave as many comments as you want, the more the better! oh yeah, let me know after u go this week, try the chiffon and cream puff (at least)

dorothy: tampopo is love, you hit the spot right on! i always feel it’s a crime not to order everything there, all the desserts look so delicious right?

zay: hahaha yeah it’s been a while :D

kitsune shoujo: I’m feeling so happy by managing to convince you! let them be your energy while u stay up late for work!

If you could see me right now, all that’s on my face is this confused and quizzical expression. I don’t think I can look at a cream puff today without thinking of sex.

With that, we became lovers. It’s almost like an affair actually..

danghl: Thank you! glad you enjoy reading it

Chiewmei: uh-oh, the end.

The Merry Traveller: Everytime you eat a cream puff, i’m sure you will think of me. HAHA

HAHAHA. you are totally describing a love affair. ;)

And what a coincidence, every time you post a Tampopo Deli post, I also have it the same time as you do! Lol. I had a cream puff two days earlier and it was simply AWESOME. There was so much cream filling in it that I practically swooned with every nouthful. (: But the last time I went, there was so little cream it was almost dry! So does it mean it depends on one’s luck on how much cream there is?

I tried the M before but thought it was too sweet though! But I feel like trying my hand at making chestnut macarons for fun cos Meidi-Ya sells chestnut puree. Hee.

sounds like everyone either had affairs or intending to have with these lovely making me drool in office desserts.. TGIF.. tomorrow i shall love them all~~

maris: Well you should! what are you gonna bake next?

chelle: hehe glad you like it. Actually, this visit was like one-two months ago! maybe i have a good feeling when you are craving for tampopo. tee hee. oh dear, dry cream sounds really bad. On all the occasions i went there so far, everything was perfect. Chestnut macarons? Do i get to try them? : )

ah bui bui: are you going to have a secret affair with them tomorrow? have fun! let me know how it goes

caibao: Grab xiqing, and hurry down there!
