Next Destination Cardiff In Wales

AFTER TWO NIGHTS IN OXFORD, we checked out and continued our journey to another country, Wales which is part of UK (I just got to know that recently only) Oh my Geography!

Our next destination is Cardiff and we spent three nights here in a modest hotel called Ibis!  A budget hotel and yet clean and comfortable, most important, walking distance to town.  Three nights cost around £200 or less but parking is £4-7 a day... for two nights we came back late and we had to park for £12 per night at another place.  Other than that, Cardiff is a nice place to visit....
Reminds me of Penang Bridge and toll is £6.60 one way ..
Our humble lodging for three nights...
Walking to town the Beer Brain in front of us.. Took this picture as a landmark..
At Frankie n Benny having our lunch... 
We had our lunch at Frankie and Benny's at the mall. No choices for me here, but to my surprise, the spaghetti was fabulous with the meatballs, I was pretty satisfied! 
After a fifteen minutes walk, we reached the shopping street...
Checking for directions to which mall....
Castle at the backpground... 
We came here to wait for a friend....
She caught a giant pokemon at one of the shops...
At the Cardiff market...
The aroma of the Welsh cakes led us here...
29pence per piece....

We were told that we must try their Welsh cakes, 
buttery and soft especially just freshly baked from the oven... 
It was drizzling at the later part in the afternoon, the rain was soft so it didn't dampen our spirits and we continued to Walk around till nearly 6pm. Rested awhile at the hotel before our next itinerary ...
Cardiff Bay!

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...
