I'll be getting rid of these soon!


And to celebrate, B and I are going to treat ourselves to chocolate. Lots and lots of chocolate!

Here’s a new favorite of ours – Singapore-based Chocolate Research Facility.

We were attracted to their store because of its minimalist and clever approach to their displays and packaging. I loved how some of their boxes resembled some tile designs we spotted at Ann Siang Hill.

And once we sampled their chocolates we knew we’d leave with a bagful!

The Chocolate Research Facility ‘s 100 flavors range from classic (such as dark, milk chocolate, sugar-free variants) to fruity (raisin, banana, mango), nutty (hazelnut, walnut, pecan) and exotic (azuki, sichuan pepper). We can’t wait to try them all!

For SGD 8 to 15, one gets a cleverly designed “soapbox” filled with 70 grams of joy. You can also check out their merchandise for chocoholics here.

So here’s to a great final quarter, folks! Here’s to our health and to the benefits celebrating with chocolate doth bring!
