When the petrol price dropped, I was looking forward but then we were slapped with a petrol tax. Guess we never win.
Hopefully the government will step up to setting the rental for food centre realistically so that the vendors will not cite high rental to increase food cost. Already prices at coffee shops are spiraling up. I do hope that the government will remove sub rental on food centres.
Anyway, whenever we were over the border, we like to bite on food that is half the price of what we are getting in Singapore. One of them was Cinnamon Buns and since I am not heading there any sooner, I wanted to bake some myself.
This is the second time I baked these as hubby said it was good and comparable to the shop.
Findings: It also says soft the next time and it just needs a few mins in the toaster or microwave to warm it up again.
Since I "baked" this in the air fryer, my time was shorten alot.
