Westminster Abbey, London

SINCE IT WAS OUR LAST DAY IN LONDON, we wanted to cover as much as we could... and so our walk continued on from St. James Park to Westminster Abbey.... and one famous icon that Aaron mentioned we must take a picture like this.... below....
Iconic scene of London.... 
Must not leave London without taking this picture, so he said... LOL.... 
As we walked to the Abbey, this is the surrounding scenery... 

It was a Sunday and people just love the sun!
But I took this picture hiding from the sun!  LOL... 
Big Ben at the background... 
The Westminster Abbey against the sun... 
Every year Westminster Abbey welcomes over one million visitors who want to explore 
this 700 year old building... It is open from Monday till Saturday but on Sunday, 
it is only open to those who want to worship.... 
So we just stayed around the vicinity before we walked on... 
Next time we must go and visit on a non-Sunday... 
Forgot what building this is... 
It is just opposite the Westminster Abbey... 
Before we walked on, we need some refreshment for energy... 
One last panorama view before we proceeded on to 
River Thames!

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

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! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

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...
