I paid a visit to Continental Bakery on 8 August 2013, as some friends told me they liked the buns here. I bought apple pies, croissants and a chocolate-cheese bun. It was the Hari Raya holidays and I was off by no-carbohydrate diet for four days. I had the apple pie at tea time, and the croissants the following morning.
