D’éclair-ation of Love
Hailing from France, PAUL bakery and patisserie serves up an impressive selection of pastries and desserts that will make you swoon! A must-try are their famous French éclairs – a light and airy choux pastry, filled with cream and topped with a beautiful glaze. While you’re there, grab one of their tartlets – another crowd favourite! We are partial to their tangy Lemon Tartlet filled with bright and creamy lemon curd – it’s a beautifully balanced dessert that never fails to spark joy within.

With Malaysia’s sweltering heat, you can never go wrong with an ice cold dessert!
If you’re up for an icy Instagrammable treat, kakigori – a Japanese sweet dessert with finely shaved ice and a variety of toppings – is perfect for you.

Delightful Turkish Delight
Turkish Delight, commonly known as lokum, is a delicacy from Turkey and Iran and can be traced back as far as the late 18th Century. This candy has the soft squishy texture of gumdrops and is often flavoured with rosewater, orange or lemon. Premium varieties include chopped dates, almonds, hazelnuts and pistachios, which are then dusted with icing sugar or copra. This fun treat will surely delight kids and adults alike!
