Autumn Hokkaido Fair 秋の北海道フェア


As I said previously, autumn is here, as is in Japan. Takashimaya Department Store (at Ngee Ann City) is having an Autumn Hokkaido Fair in their food department (B2), way in the back behind Godiva and near Cold Storage.

シンガポールの高島屋デパートは今「秋の北海道フェア」をやっています。



There is a range of food sold there, from typical roll cakes in various flavours, including their signature Green Tea, to ramen cooked on the spot and sashimi bentos (refer to picture above). THEY ARE ALSO SELLING THE AMAZING SHIROI KOIBITO (Hokkaido White Chocolate sandwich biscuit) THERE!!!

色々の食べ物があります。抹茶のロールケーキもあるし、ラーメンもあるし、刺身弁当でもあるですよ。北海道の「白い恋人」もありますよ〜!!!☆



They're also selling dango! They have Mitarashi (sweet soy sauce), Azuki (red bean) and Kurogoma (black sesame)! I used to eat Takashimaya's dango all the time and I love it! It's $2.50 for a stick of 4 now (used to be $1.80 ;_; inflation hurts)..

団子もあります!みたらし団子、小豆団子、そして黒ごま団子がありそうです。昔から高島屋デパートのみたらし団子を食べましたです、とてもおいしいと思います〜♡



And this is...

あと、これは。。。


Choux Creme! I'd never had choux creme ever in my life before, although my mom was a loyal customer at this store back in Sunshine City Ikebukuro, where she would buy some everyday. However, today, as I was walking around the fair, the smell of the freshly baked pastries was so strong and could be detected everywhere I went, so I finally gave in and got one Choux Creme with Caramel cream for $6 (pricey!!!).

シュークリームです!アタシは18年に一度もシュークリームを食べられなかったよ。でも、母はシュークリームを大好きで、東京にいた時毎日池袋のサンシャインシティで買いましたよ!とにかく、フェアでシュークリームの匂いはあんなおいしそうだったから、結局アタシ1つの生キャラメルシュークリームを買った。



The Choux Creme was heavenly. The pastry part itself literally melted in my mouth, as did the super-light caramel cream. I don't really like whipped cream, yet this one was amazing, probably because it was caramel-flavoured. Although the cream was ultra-light and not too thick, it was not in the least foamy and melted only in my mouth, and not when exposed to the warm temperature of this island.

Unfortunately, with its maiden taste, I conclude my Choux Creme adventures because I discovered that I'm allergic to some ingredient in it (not sure what), as I began breaking out in a burning rash after eating it (I hadn't eaten anything else all day so it was definitely the Choux Creme ;_;).

あの生キャラメルのシュークリームは最高においしかった!アタシはあんまりホイップが好きじゃないなのに、この生キャラメルクリームは意外にうまいでした。クリームはふわふわでした、甘さも完璧でした!

それにしても、残念だけど、これからアタシはシュークリームを食べられませんです。なんかアレルギーがありそうです。。今日シュークリームまで何も食べてなかったから、絶対にシュークリームに何か入ったの食材にはアレルギーがありそうです。今までアタシは1つだけのアレルギーがあったけど、今日新しいアレルギーを見つけたね。(泣)



Anyway, this is the friendly Japanese patissiere who was swiftly making all the Choux Cremes and piping the filling. As I stood there taking photos, he actually turned towards me and posed! Sadly, iPhone camera has a little lag time in between shots, and I missed his cute pose.

そう言えばさ、これはかわいい日本人のパティシエおじさんです。おじさんがアタシのカメラを見た時、ポーズをしましたよ!でも、アタシは遅すぎたから写真を撮りませんでした。。(泣)



The fair ends in two days' time on the 9th of October, so if you wanna head down and grab some stuff (LIKE SHIROI KOIBITO), I advise you to hurry!

There is also a mini Japanese confectionary fair in Wisma Atria (first level, in front of the concierge), but I didn't try anything..

After this, there will be another post on some pastries I bought at Takashimaya today, as well as some other things!

この後はもう1つのポストが来ます。このポストは高島屋デパートで買いましたのその他のケーキ、そして別の買物です〜!♡そろそろまた会いましょう〜


♡サニー☆
