Affordable Stay At Pension Alpha Hotel In Frankfurt

WE STAYED IN A MODEST HOTEL CALLED PENSION ALPHA... It is just five minutes walk from the train station, very convenient for us to move about especially we have to take the tram to visit the city.   At first we didn't notice much of the name but after we checked in, we know why it is called Pension Alpha! 

Let me talk about the hotel, I highly recommend this cos it fits my disability in the room.  Most important is the toilet... There is a slab in the bathroom which I could sit on when I shower and the toilet is near to the sink, It is big enough to put a plastic chair near the sink to do my cleaning... Phew... I was so relieved for I was longing for a good shower!!  
As for the room, there are three beds near to each other... I like... We can have a good bonding before we call it a night....
We stayed three nights here... £50 for each of us which is quite reasonable....
Only setback is I have to hop down six steps to the lift each time we go out...
No complaints about that as long as I can hold on to someone's shoulder.... 😀
Since we stay near to the train station, we had our dinner there on the first night...
So many outlets and much to choose from...
But of course, we chose this... Our first Pork Knuckle in Germany... 
And my friend could not resist the belly as well.... 
With another plate of large potato fries and hot drinks, we were completely satisfied....
After dinner, we had a short stroll around the vicinity....
It was already dark around 6pm... Day is short....
How Hauptbahnhof looks by night.....
After a short stroll, we called it a night....
Wanted to be fully energised and recharged the next day to go downtown.....

As for the hotel, we guessed that it is manned by a few pensioners cos those on duty are all elderly men... Only one of them speak simple English...at first they seem unsmiling but after greeting them whenever we go in and out, they are much friendlier and generous with their smiles.... Well... Cute!!

  11. Good choice of hotel when it is so near the station.

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!

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...
