Cavalock and The Calpis Vodka Counterbalance

Talk about a match made in heaven. One of my favorite drinks Calpis now comes with added booze or vodka to be exact! I'm quite surprised that they didn't change the packaging cos it looks just like their regular Calpis can. Anyway so how does it taste like? Well, you are not gonna get pissed drunk drinking one can that's for sure, and drinking more one a can of milk culture, well, that'll sort of give a whole new set of problems, if you know what I mean.

So really, it's a nice little vodka drink. You can definitely taste the vodka, the (in)famous Calpis tang isn't as blatant as in a regular Calpis drink, so I guess if you were never into Calpis this could just right for you. :P

The weekend was rather therapeutic as I became the designated photographer for a making-of-macarons pix collection. They really taste great, you got your texture, rich flavors and everything, there's raspberry, earl grey and caramel but unfortunately they aren't for sale. They are all gifts but maybe one day they will be...

Cavalock and The Gnocchi Discovery

It took me a long time but I finally found myself some gnocchi! Maybe it's the Italian joints I used to go to but gnocchi is not a dish you often see on their menus. Anyway, thanks to epicurative's post on Da Luca, an Italian restaurant at Goldhill Plaza, I got to have my first taste of spinach gnocchi. It was pure melt-in-your-mouth goodness. I guess there's not much in terms of texture but the taste was just right with a light sweetness to it.

The rocket salad with pear and cheese was also a nice choice before the gnocchi main course. You got the cheese and sweet slices of pear in a right combo with the crunchy rocket leaves. Yah, the shots aren't that great cos of the dim restaurant lighting and all.

All right! Now that I got the gnocchi ticked off my list but doesn't mean I don't want any more gnocchi, but the next thing I got to try is a Philly Cheesesteak. Just like gnocchi, I read a lot about it, seen a lot of it on TV but have yet to try it. So wish me luck!
