Comparing Macarons Like a Pro… November 25, 2010

…when I’m not one. Lols. Everyone has different preference in taste. And I have my own ranking of macarons which I like.

Ong Susu just came back from Aussie and she helped me to buy some Lindt’s macarons. I’ve been really in love with these ever since I came back from Paris but I’ve yet to find some nice macarons which can beat Laduree’s or Sadaharu Aoki’s.

These Lindt’s macarons are sold at A$2.50 each. It’s ok. Nice but not as good as the ones I had in Paris. I find the crust a little too thick to my liking.. more like cookies. Huhu. But from these few flavours, I like pistachio the best. (And it’s a flavour ong susu picked for me!)

This is Santo Tome’s (Plaza Zocodover, Toledo) macarons. They were.. erm.. a bit hard. I kinda have a bad impression on Spain’s desserts. Lols. I guess you should only try mazapans in Spain since they’re famous for it.

The first ever macarons which I tried! Sadaharu Aoki’s macarons! Yummyyyy! I like the fact that they have small ones. Lindt’s macarons only come in one size apparently.. since Susu was a bit confused when I told her I want the small ones. Lol. But macarons are generally SWEET and having a big piece of macaron is.. erm.. a little too sweet for me.

The best macaron award goes to Laduree!! I love their rose flavoured macarons ^.^ It’s too bad that I didn’t get to try Pierre Herme’s macarons as I read it’s even better than Laduree’s?

Madu and I joined this video competition organised by Taylor’s. He’s the main cast, of course. And he plots what to do and stuff. It’s just a 30-sec video to show what’s your biggest fear.

But the annoying part is.. well, it’s a facebook competition. So you win by getting the most votes. Such competitions are NEVER fair. The most friends win, obviously. ARGHH. I spent the whole day sitting in front of my lappie to msg people in my list to “like” the video.

The good thing bout this competition is, I get to catch up with old friends 🙂 Ended up talking to them and catching up with their life. And I discovered who are the selfish people in my list and I shall NOT help them even if they need my help in the future. i.e. there was this girl who joined some competition like this before.. i helped her back then and now when I needed help, she ignored me! WTF RIGHT?! Damn selfish fella.

Oh! And there’s another girl.. I helped her click before too. But when I asked her to help me, she ignored me also. And after my competition ended, apparently she joined another competition and she has the face to ask me help her again! WTF MANN. I ignored her of course. Such selfish people do not deserve help!

There’s also lotsa nice friends though. I have many friends who not even helped me “like” the video. They helped me to promote too! That’s reallllly nice 🙂

Anw, we only ended up with the complimentary prize. Had 1k plus votes but still lost by 300+ votes. Nevertheless, I’m contented with a Carlo Rino bag! Other prizes include RM100 voucher for Tropicana Life and 1 month Muay Thai training for 2 persons.
