CNY Snack From Poon Confectionery (Review & Giveaway!)

My favourite festival of the year is coming!!!!

I must be one of those rare ones who don’t get irritated by the loud dong-dong-chiang music on loop at supermarkets and everywhere because it makes me feel really happy! Apart from gathering with family and friends for sumptuous meals, the best part of every Chinese New Year is of course snacking on yummy goodies! CNY is the only legit reason not to watch our diet! This year, Poon Confectionery sent out several of their CNY goodies and it was my first time tasting their products – I must say I was impressed!

If you check out their website, you’ll probably feel like ordering everything, just like me. =P Glad that their goodies are not only homemade with the best and freshest ingredients, they are also reasonably priced. All that translates to happiness in our tummies without burning a hole in our pockets!

Let me start off by introducing two of their products which I thought are more interesting and novel – Cuttlefish snack with seaweed and Pork Floss Roll Snack. Both are equally addictive, and you will keep popping them one after another. Remember to drink lots of water while snacking!

Their Pineapple Tarts and Cheese Pineapple Tarts are AMAZING, seriously. The crust crumbles in your mouth and the filling is sweet and soft. The combination is simply magical! I’m so in love with their pineapple tarts – One of the best I’ve tasted so far.

Love letters are not to be missed during the CNY season as well, and I love these pandan-flavoured ones. Crispy, thin and fragrant. Another one I have to consciously stop myself from taking one after another!

Hae Bee Hiam Sambal Prawn Roll is another snack I would usually binge on during CNY. Love the crispiness and right tinge of spiciness. Love it! Peanut cookies remind me of my late father and I’d always think about him when I snack of these. :)

Following the salted egg yolk everything craze, Poon Confectionery also has several salted egg yolk snacks. This canister sent over is the Salted Egg Yolk Chips – I reckon this would be gone very, very soon too!

Sunway Lost World of Tambun (Part 3)

Media Invite

If you are worried that there is nothing to do in Sunway Lost World of Tambun when night falls, you are very wrong! In fact, I enjoyed the theme park a lot more when it got dark – There were attractions open only at night too!

Luminous Forest

This was a pretty interested enchanted forest concept where you get to walk through a trail and see rocks, trees and all kinds of statues all lit up in luminous colours! It’s only open when it’s dark enough, obviously so make sure you don’t leave too early when you visit LWOT.

On our way to the next attraction, we saw the teahouse in a cave that looked very interesting all lit up too!

Hot Springs Night Park

I don’t know another country nearby to Singapore that has a hot springs park like Sunway LWOT. There were many different pools with different temperatures, including one with icy cold water for you to dip yourself in when it gets too hot and hard-to-breathe. Soaking in hot springs is good for blood circulation, but those with heart problems should take note and exercise caution not to dip for too long. Hot springs is always a good idea at night – Super duper shiok! If I have to pick what I like best about Sunway LWOT, it is definitely the Hot Springs Night Park! (Do note that the night park is separately tickets from the day park)

Personally, I was glad we opted to stay within the theme park instead of the hotel outside of the theme park because it was such a nice feeling walking in the park before and after opening hours when there was no one, and we felt like we had the whole Lost World of Tambun to ourselves! It was certainly a holiday we would remember for a long, long time. =) Thank you https://sunwaylostworldoftambun.com/ for the wonderful experience! Can’t wait to be back again soon.

This wraps up my three-part series on Sunway Lost World of Tambun. If you would like to go back and read the earlier parts, here are the links:

Sunway Lost World of Tambun (Part 2)

Media Invite

We had a superb time at Sunway Lost World of Tambun’s mini zoo – Love how interactive it was with feeding opportunities available at many areas and petting areas for fun and cute animals. Kids would really love it here! Even adults would enjoy playing with the animals – I sure did!

So cute when they reached out their little hands to receive the treats from us! They were totally not scared of humans, and were very playful too.

We managed to catch a Tiger Show at midday, and it was entertaining as well!

The Giraffe & Friends enclosure was really fun! We’ve never had the opportunity to feed giraffes, zebras and camels in Singapore, so this was novelty! We had to go to the higher level platform in order to feed the giraffes – So much fun!

The place that Joey went back over and over again was the Catopia because she loves cats! This enclosure allows you to get up, close and personal with really beautiful cats (even rare breeds!) and pat them.

Right next to our Glamping site was the Hippo Kingdom where we observed hippopotamus underwater as well as hyenas, crocodiles and flamingos!

I promised you there would be a galore of animals, didn’t I? We spent 2D1N in Sunway LWOT and visited the animals on both days! Too cute to resist! =D If you have not read Part 1 of this series, please go on to this link. 3rd and final post coming up soon! =D
