@kermit, with a twinkle in her eye, raved, "Finally tried the black sesame toast at coffee break!! Super shiok, especially if you like the kind of kaya toast with a slab of butter. The sesame balances out the creamy heavy butter super well, the toast is crunchy too!" Not to be outdone, @bbjiaksimi chimed in, "Also more butter than most places hurhur."

@albert's excitement was evident as he shared, "Affordable cai png at Maxwell Food Centre! Stall name is HAPPY FOOD." However, @lilith, the no-nonsense critic, remarked, "Affordable but it looks so sad… It’s inching towards war-time portions of little protein & nutrients but more carbs." @x3rai added a heartwarming twist, "The aunty that serves me food at Happy Food stall is always very nice to me despite our language barriers as I am unable to speak Chinese. I patronize the stall often because of that."
Ah, the portion predicament! While @albert's celebrated the pocket-friendly cai png, @lilith had her nutrition radar on high alert. And there was @x3rai, proving that sometimes, a friendly aunty's warmth can trump the biggest of portion woes!
