Moonlight Cake House @ Jalan Sutera, Johor Bahru, Malaysia

Mark asked, “Are you ready to eat the curry now or do you want to have coffee first?”

“Erhm… Coffee and cakes?” I said timidly as I do not know if Mark’s diet would allow such indulgences.

“Great! I know just the place.”

“Wait, I have to dapau the chicken!”

I walked over from Restoran Bamboo, less than 5 steps, to Restoran Teck Sing and placed my order at the counter. The cashier, I’m guessing she’s the lady boss, was busy with the cash register as customers were paying up after their dinner. There were many couples and families in the restaurant. “One Emperor Chicken, one vegetable and two rice” said a departing diner paying up as I waited for my take-out. I tried to detect from his expression if he had been a happy patron. He had a poker face. I’ll find out later when I get back home.

The wait was short, precooked chicken remember? I asked for the receipt and off we go to Sutera Mall in Skudai. There were lots of eateries opposite the huge shopping mall. That’s where we headed.

Cars are cheaper in Malaysia and every family owns at least one. Today being a Saturday at the beginning of the month, with salaries paid, there’s money to be spent! The massive car park was fully occupied.

“You don’t mind walking a bit, do you?”

Mind? We’d be lucky to get a parking lot!

We walked through the maze of shophouses. We couldn’t locate the shop which sold crepe cakes Mark wanted to bring me. He knew the place by sight while driving but on foot he was lost. I said I’m fine with any place that serves good coffee. The creep crepe can wait.

I wanted these badly but I held back.<br />Fondant would be too sweet and I don't want to use my spare calories.<br />I did a quick mental calculation - only three of these would satisfy me so it would be better if I settle for a standard slice and still get to eat my curry mee later.

Mark didn't want coffee and they do not serve gourmet teas. They said they only have Teh O which is black tea. That was fine by Mark and he asked they add a slice of lemon (it came with additional charges).

My cuppa - I forgot to add skinny in front of my latte.

Can you guess which was Mark's and which was mine?

Did you guess correctly?

The Red Velvet Cheese Slice was sacchariferous. The culprit… Cream cheese! But I loved it. The beetroot colour baked batter was not as dense as I thought. I think it would go very well with a plain French Earl Grey. Suddenly, the latte seemed too heavy and I asked for ice water to cleanse my coated tongue.

Green Tea Tiramisu was very light in terms of texture and taste. No wonder Mark was surprised when I said my cake was too sweet. I took a bite of the airy sponge and delicate green tea infused mousse. Too light for me. I finished my cake and Mark had half of his featherweight. I guess I’d made the right choice unless Mark does not fancy cakes at all. I shall not debate on that or I’ll flip, mentally.

Just as we were leaving, I experienced a sharp pain at the lower end of my sternum. I felt queasy. Should I tell Mark I was not feeling well and I would like to call off curry and head back to Singapore? I was terribly nauseated and might need to see a doctor. My mind started to race as my feeble legs carried me in the direction of the parked car. I was breaking out in cold sweat by the time I reached the vehicle but Mark didn’t noticed.

Mark paid for the meal earlier so this was my treat. I'd insisted even though he was already at the counter with his money.
