Brussels Morning Market And Round-Up

ONE TIP WHEN PLANNING TO GO TO BRUSSELS, it is more "happening" at the city center... we didn't know till we were there and were told that processions is a norm during weekends.  I took some video clips of the procession, ok, it was not me who took, I just couldn't see from the position I was seated but Aaron managed to capture some for me... I could only see the crowd and heard the loud music....

The procession is on..... and the crowd loves it....
Not sure what kind of festival... maybe it was for the weekend tourists...like us...
Horsing along the alleys ....
One more picture of The Peeing Boy before we headed back.... 
Something out of proportion here... 
On the way out from the city....
Where cars are not allowed to go in...
Entrance to the Grand Palace...
And that was it....

The very next morning, we woke up early because we were told that there was a morning market just below our homestay apartment....  We still have three hours to go before our departure....
Something like our own morning or night market here.....
But it was a huge one that we couldn't finished walking to each and every stall....
If we have the time to cook, we would surely buy a few things here....
We didn't do any shopping here... 
Just bought some buns, roasted chicken and grapes for our brunch.....
And after packing up, we headed to the train station just five minutes walk away....
Goodbye Brussels!!

  2. Oh? What happened to your friend? Did not see her in any of the photos? Gosh!!! This is indeed a long holiday - I would not have the energy to go so long and to so many places, would be half dead by the time I get back. So nice and sweet of Aaron to take you all over.

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

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

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...
