    Would you still recommend China Treasures to me?

  7. I'd wanna try them all…. Slurpsss!!!!

  11. That Valrhoha looks divine, and the Deconstructed Apple Pie looks interesting, too. Chocolate and flan? Yes please! And you've just given me yet another reason to hit up Macalister Mansion when I return to Penang.
