Wandered into a shop at Bugis Junction yesterday after lunch and came across some wonderful confectioneries such as macaroons, donuts, swiss rolls and loaves of delicious bread with cute expressions. Only catch - they aren't meant to be eaten. Some people destress by eating cakes and other delectable sweet delights and I must confess that I am amongst them. But what I found helps to destress in a different way without the calories. They come with cute emoticons and are oh so squeezable.
I did assume they were created in Japan, land of the kawaii but was intrigued by the use of the word ROTI on some of the products. Singaporeans used the Malay word ROTI for bread and roti culture is very prevalent in my country. The French have their cafes but we have our versions with our unique roti kaya toast and the blackest, strongest coffee. Was pleasantly surprised to discover that these little cute confections were created by Singaporeans using NASA memory foam. Loved it more ! Bought some Roti Toast that can function as a card or mobile phone holder as well as a sweet pink macaroon which can be attached to the mobile phone. I didn't see these lovely baguettes which are actually computer keyboard rests at the shop but I chanced upon them on the Breadou website.
