2013 Chinese New Year Macarons in Singapore
Above: Chinese new year macarons for my friends and loved ones in 2013
Chinese new year has always been a special time for chinese all over the world, and chinese new year is always associated with lots of goodies, snacks and drinks for the young and old.
And that's when I thought of doing CNY (Chinese New Year) edition flavoured macarons for my friends and loved ones. And that meant having to do flavours that the chinese can all relate to.
And that resulted in 4 delicious local flavours, namely: Lychee (pink), Passionfruit (yellow), Mandarin Orange (orange) and Durian (light green).

Though macarons were thought to be a western dessert, they went really well with the local flavours.
Take a look at what my friends were saying when they sank their teeth into the macarons:

It always puts a smile on my face knowing that I'm able to create unique tasting macarons for my friends and family that aren't available in the western countries (or at least I believe they aren't available).
And it looks like the king of fruits, DURIAN, got the best comments I've seen.
I love you guys. Thanks for being a part of my life, and letting you sample my creations.
HAPPY LUNAR NEW YEAR 2013 TO ALL MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY!
