Sawatdee Khap-cakes
At the behest of a friend, we created these babies for their booth at the upcoming Fantastic Thai Market on 12th September. So the conversation goes something like this~

Friend: Bro, can you create some Thai-themed stuff for our next bazaar?
TGS: *brainstorms for two days*
TGS: Ok we gonna make you a Tom Yum cupcake and a Kanom cupcake. We gonna call them….. wait for it….. SAWATDEE KHAP-CAKES
TGS: Geddit?? GEDDIT????? ???


It’s a wonder we still have any friends at all.

Anyhoo, these all-natural cupcakes will be available at The Garden Slug through the week (or while they last), and for one day only at Wellness Hut‘s health & wellness booth at Fantastic Thai Market @ Tanjong Pagar Railway Station (12 Sep 2016, 10am-6pm). Quite likely the last bazaar at the historical landmark before it closes for a major makeover.

Tom Yum ~ lemongrass & ginger cake crusted with chili lime caramel
Kanom ~ pandan cake with gula melaka fudge & coconut flakes
Made with all-natural ingredients – no artificial colouring, no synthetic flavouring.

The ones available at the Thai-themed bazaar on 12 Sep will also be sugar-free, baked fresh using iLite’s Cook&Bake low-GI sugar replacement product. Ashley and Yanling will be able to tell you more about this “sugar-free sugar”, so say Hi to them for us, k! They’re as friendly as we are, minus the syiok sendiri (self-amusing) lame jokes ^_^

Why did we name our new cocktail “50.39”?

|ØLYMPIC•BØØZE|

Thanks to Kiss92‘s Maddy, Jason, and Arnold, we learned that hor, you cannot anyhowly use a certain hemsem Olympic gold medallist’s name to promote your product, even if he truly madly deeply eats your food or drinks your Milo every day. Because said athlete’s name is owned by the Olympic committee, or something to that effect. O, the things one learns listening to radio!!

50point39 Olympic Gold Medal Cocktail

So while it’s not true that said athlete frequents our little joint (prolly never even heard of us), it is true that we would like to celebrate the legend and his triumph nonetheless, because #singapuraboleh hokay!

In true Slug fashion, any celebration worth its weight in gold requires alcohol. So, we concocted a boozy cocktail of blueberries and green apple with a splash of gin & vodka.

It’s called “50.39” after the new record-breaking timing. It is also the time it takes us to make one of these babies. HOW COOL IS THAT?! ??? #ownself

Illusion – Nipples – Eggsplosion

Time is an illusion. Lunchtime doubly so.

|ILLUSIØN|
… is naming something ‘mee siam mai hum’ when there is neither mee siam nor a single hum in it.

(p/s: we added a book AND reading glasses to make the pic look… somewhat, er, intellectual. Have you read said book or would you like to win it? Let us know in the comments and we’ll set something up.)

|NIPPLES|
This one makes its rounds every other year or so, with the same ol’ peoples calling it “nipples” instead of nibbles and thinking it very funny #eyerollemoji

An old and new favourite. Perhaps one day we shall make a “10-year series” of specials.

|EGGSPLØSIØN|
How many of you can relate this to the two breakfast scenes in V for Vendetta? Hands up! 😀

oknvm

Basically a buffed up version of ‘egg-in-a-basket’ — we threw it in the gym and whipped it into a cracking grilled ham & cheese-cum-egg-in-hole sandwich. Slay it (with a wimpy butter knife) like the vigilante that you are and watch the eggplosive fun! You can also ask for a topping of an eggstra ripped whole portobello mushroom.

Before the slay
Humpty Dumpty before slaying

After the slay
Humpty Dumpty

And….. here’s an easter egg for y’all ^_^

Don’t we all just love the sight of a masked, murdering vigilante wearing a flowery, pink apron and a tea towel over the shoulder? # ^_^
