A sweet spot in Selegie – Le Cafe Confectionery and Rochor Original Beancurd

There is a sweet spot in Selegie.  We found ourselves at the corner of Middle Road and Selegie Road recently. It is also a dangerous place in Singapore where it is easy to succumb to temptation from the two shops selling desserts. After some internal conflict, we caved in. But since sharing is caring, we will share our calories with you.   We show you the desserts that we bought and ate from Le Cafe Confectionery and Rochor Original Beancurd. Hopefully you will also be tempted. If we can’t stay slim,  we can all gain weight together (*evil laughter*).

We can imagine that the place would look even grander when lit up at night.
