Travel Plans

Christmas is around the corner, this is the best time of the year to do some traveling here and there. As for me, I am not going anywhere far yet this month but we will not be celebrating Christmas in our house this year. That is why I did not put up our Christmas tree this year, we will be visiting down south to visit my siblings and celebrating the festive season with them. I am really looking forward to seeing them again, it has been a long time since we last gathered together as one family.

As for my traveling plans, my kids and I have decided to visit Down Under next year.  Now is the time to "accumulate" some information, where, what, how and when.  LOL.... These brochures below were passed to me by my colleague who had just came back from Australia.  He just came back from Sydney with his wife, they had a wonderful time there and he has given me much details on where to stay, where to go, what to eat etc. etc.  Since I am going with my three kids, he suggested that we could rent a car to drive around Melbourne.  There are so many listed and reliable websites and one of them is the campervan hire from My Drive Holiday.  Yes, we are going for a free-and-easy trip, no group tours and waking up wee hours in the morning, we prefer to plan our own tours or joining some local tours when we reach there.  Nothing definite yet, we are still planning.... :)
Useful information... I hope by the time I go, I can remember what he had told me!  
hahahaa...
My first time to Sydney, that was many years ago.
Darling Harbour, if I am not mistaken....
Any changes after 30 years? LOL...
Queuing up to take a picture with Mr. Koala!
Well, it would be great to make another trip to Down Under...
Hopefully by next year...

  2. i will not travel during the peak season, because everywhere will be so packed and also the fares will be more expensive too.. so festive seasons better stay in KL, as KL will be very quite and peaceful, haha.. have not been Down Under before lah.. you are going there for the second time, how nice!!

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...
