Having endured more than a month of ‘Circuit Breaker’ measures, I’m pretty sure most of us are tired of being cooped up at home. More than ever, we are probably missing our families and friends not seeing them face-to-face since the start of April 2020.
Since it will possibly take a couple more months of gradual easing till we really get to meet our loved ones, why not show them that they are still in our hearts by sending a care package to last them through the day? Here are five ideas of some sweet treats which you can get delivered from Shopee to a friend or family member to express your love and care during this difficult time!
Old school, traditional and nothing short of yummy, nonya kuehs are one of the few food items in Singapore that have transcended generations and are still loved by both the young and old. If you are planning to send a box of surprise to a friend or colleague who has their parents and kids staying with them, Rainbow Lapis’s Kueh Sharing Boxes will be an ideal choice.
Handcrafted with quality ingredients and made using less sugar, the Kueh Sharing Boxes (S$25.65 – S$37.80) are available in four variations and comes in a set of 12 kuehs. To make your recipient’s tea time complete, you can also pick a tea of your choice as an add-on item to be delivered with the kuehs.
Kueh Sharing Boxes aside, Rainbow Lapis is also famous for their aromatic and sinfully buttery Kueh Lapis which can also be found on their Shopee page. Just be reminded to place your orders at least two working days in advance for both delivery and self-collection to avoid any disappointment!
