Antalya: A Brief Resort Guide

The Turkish Riviera is a piece of turquoise coast that can be found in the southwest of the country, providing visitors with exceptional climes, incredible beaches and crystal clear seas. Located in the area, holidays in Antalya are perfect for anyone who wants to escape the hustle and bustle of some of the more vibrant resorts, giving visitors a more relaxing environment in which to spend their summer sojourn. 

Antalya is heaving with shimmering beaches and delectable eateries that can keep you occupied during your stay, but its appeal doesn’t stop there. History and heritage is rife in the area, with plenty of sites to visit should you wish to spend your time exploring as well as unwinding.

Of course, the resort in which you decide to base yourself for the duration of your stay is an important choice and with various resorts on offer within the Antalya province, you have quite the decision to make. Here’s a brief outline of some of the popular resorts in the area and why they would be a perfect base for your visit. 

Lara Beach would be the ideal spot for sunworshippers. From the azure waters to the glistening beaches, if you’re hoping to do very little during your Turkish retreat, this would be the place for you. If your plans are to top up your tan, watch the world go by and recharge your batteries, you’ll be in the right place here. 

Side is a quaint fishing village that attracts travellers from all walks of life. Whether you want to spend your days on the beautiful coast, stroll around the cobbled streets of the resort or explore the bounty of museums and ruins in the area, there’s something available for you. 

Colakli offers the ultimate in tranquillity. If you plan on playing on the beach with your kids during your stay, Colakli is the perfect resort for you, while a trip to the Manavgat Caves would make an excellent itinerary filler if you can tear yourself away from the golden sands.

Whatever resort suits your personal tastes, an Antalya holiday would be a great way to while away a week or two this summer. Take a look online for some great value vacations this summer.

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

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...

I expected the worst actually... and this was taken tbefore we said our goodbyes.. thank God for safe journeys and a pleasant trip altogether...
