Amsterdam Central To Hauptbahnhof Station In Frankfurt

THE THREE OF US HAD A FITFUL SLEEP THAT NIGHT IN AMSTERDAM, even on the two seater sofa, I just conked out straight the minute the lights went out... The next morning we got up and had our light breakfast, hard boiled eggs with bread and ginger jam.  At exactly 9am, the cab arrived at our doorstep...very punctual man!  And off we went to catch the train to our next destination... FRANKFURT, GERMANY!
 
At the entrance of the train station at Amsterdam Central....
We alighted from the cab and in our midst of excitement, we nearly forgot to pay the cab driver till he reminded us... What an embarrassment.... Hahahaaa... 
Oh well... Maybe I was to blame... They had to make sure I am seated properly etc..etc...
Inside the train...as usual, I had the special seat....
More space to put my special leg....
More space to move about.....
And to relax.....

The train traveled at around 300km/hr but we did not feel its speed....
We still managed to take some pictures along the way....
Green pastures....
Canals....
Soon we reached Frankfurt... safe and sound... Carried off from the train by the potter.... 
The journey took four hours and we spent half of the journey sleeping so that we looked fresh when we arrived... Hahahaa.... And off we went to our hotel which is just within walking distance... Or should I say...pushing distance....

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...
