Awesome Algarve



On the west of Europe surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea and nestled tightly against the east coast of Spain, sits a country famous for its beaches and hospitality. Portugal has mature holiday resorts that have, over the years, become perfect tourist traps providing top class holidays and relaxed friendly atmospheres. It's no wonder Portugal is one of the top destinations in the holiday brochure.

Portugal has many resorts and regions that all offer beautiful beaches to bathe on, clean sparkling waters to swim in and wonderful fresh cuisine to taste. So which area do you pick if you want to spend time there? It would depend firstly on how you want to spend your vacation. If you are a culture vulture then the best advice would be to head towards Lisbon where you can soak up scores of sites and historical landmarks. If you are a party animal and want to spend your nights swinging along to the Portuguese vibe, then Areias de Sao Joao will fill your soul with the sound of music.

However if you crave a classic coastal getaway then Algarve holidays could be right up your street. The Algarve has become one of Portugal’s best loved regions and with good reason too. The most southerly region can offer a little taste of everything depending on which resort you stay in. The Moorish capital of Silves is an enchanting little town with a fascinating history including an ancient castle and a cathedral. Peppered with orange and lemon trees this area is great as either a destination or a daytrip. Lagos is also full of history but has a bubbling vibe as well, making it the perfect holiday town for those who love something with a bitoflife. Then there is the stunning Caldas de Monchique, with miles of limestone caves, grottos, rugged cliffs and breathtaking scenery.This is a wonderful area to spend time in, either as a day trip or for a thoroughly restful and relaxing holiday.

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven....

Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
