Photo 3-5-15 4 57 34 pmSnow White in the Blackforest from Halia (Singapore Botanic Gardens) – fresh red apple sorbet in a white chocolate casing, kirsch marinated cherries, dark choux branch, chocolate crumble, whipped cream and castor sugar soil. So jawdroppingly, show-stoppingly gorgeous a concept that the food could have been shit and all would have forgiven, but I was really in for a treat. The juicy cherries were so wet with alcohol you suddenly see a possible alternative explanation behind Snow White’s slumber and why she only woke up with a Prince’s kiss (tsk, that saucy minx).  The airy choux branch was lightly salty, and they weren’t kidding about the freshness of said apple. A must-try for dessert lovers. 4.4/5

Shawn began documenting his food experiences since he started reading Law at the National University of Singapore. Initially he turned to food for solace from the rigours of university life, and food eventually became his safe haven away from the horrors of legal practice. However, it dawned on him one day that he has become sufficiently enlightened about the magic of discovering new and good food. Thus, he joined Burpple, a company with which his goals coincided - to help people decide what to eat. Secret Life of Fatbacks is an extension of Shawn's Instagram account (@Larvitar). For intellectual property reasons, he is unable to name the website anything related to the titular Pokémon character. Feel free to ask him in person what "Fatbacks" refers to. Shawn is not a professional food critic, food blogger or food photographer. He is simply a guy who loves food very much and (likes to think that he has) a quirky sense of humor. He enjoys combining them in his writing, and hopes to put a smile on some faces along the way.
