'My x-ray glasses are broken'

Well, it's Xmas nite and here I am. Did some more grocery shopping earlier in the day! Actually for the last week, I been hunting for scallop shells cos of another recipe I read in best damn cook book I found this year. It's a real simple recipe where I got to just bake some scallops in their shells. Problem is, I can't find any supermarket that sold scallops WITH their shells intact. Ok, I found one remaining pack at Raffles City Marketplace. But it was like S$45 for a frozen pack of maybe a dozen? Cos my x-ray glasses are broken and I can't see through the pack.

Anyway, so while I was at Raffles City, I had me some macarons from Canele. I asked an ex-colleague where would I find the best macarons in town and she pointed me here. My fav would be Violet. The Caramel was pretty good too but the caramel taste is really strong.


So I'm kinda hoping if there's anyone out there who can tell where I can find scallops with their shells, and also, where do you think is the best macarons in Singapore. A gazillion thanks in advance!

How about Kuriya Fresh Fish Market at GWC? Isetan or Meidi-ya?

Regarding the macarons, I should think Canele still have the best ones. At least in Singapore. But only their macarons! Not the cakes...
