Greek Community Festival Along Lonsdale Street, Melbourne

After our heavy meal, we set out again and before we do each time, my young tour guides will "consult" the map for directions first... .
                          Checking out where to go... north or south... east or west.... 
Great, eh... I don't have to voice out anything... I just sing...
"I will follow you... follow you wherever you may go..."

Then we passed by the State Library again... 
Some Koreans doing some K-Pop dance and asking us to stop for a few minutes to see them... 
People happily obliged to see them perform one dance... 
and then we set off again... 
Passed by a few malls... 
Lots of Asians in sight...
Going up some malls to look-see... 
But nothing much that interests us... 
Back on the streets again...
At the traffic light while waiting for it to turn green... 
Ended up walking past Chinatown... 
Nothing much to buy here.. just look see only... 
And of course, taking pictures... 
Really different from the Chinatown in San Francisco... 
Few more blocks and we were amazed to see a big crowd here!
Something Greek was going on!
Looks like we were in the midst of a Greek festival.... 
Greek food for sale... but we didn't get any...
Looks like sweetened doughnuts...
Walking along to see what else in store... 
Yes, she saw something really TALL!
Interesting!
Nice to feel the festive atmosphere coincidentally.... 
And we experienced a Greek dance performed by two handsome guys!
Some hair raising thrill rides too....
Everyone seems to be having fun!
I certainly did!
                                    We felt we were part of the Greek community too.. LOL...

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.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

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...
