My Almond Flakes Cookies Failed To IMPRESS

SINCE MY OVEN WAS OUT FROM THE STORE ROOM, I take the opportunity to try baking something new... Almond Flakes Cookies!  Initially both of us were pretty excited, everything needed was bought and laid on the table.
I was told to get this brand... Cost around RM29 if not mistaken...
Plus all these packets it came to a whooping RM60...
O
K!
Let's Get Started!!
Mistake, mistake... Uneven powder and too stingy with the almonds and others... 
FAILED ON FIRST TRIAL.... 
20/100 marks = E 
Red marks... Cham!!
Second Try.... No, not good enough too... 
Still insufficient almonds... 
I called SOS... then I was told I must be generous with the top fillings..
Otherwise will Fail, Fail and FAIL... 
Ok, OK.... more Almonds, Pumpkin Seeds and Sesame Please.... 
I think there is something wrong here...
Uneven heat?  
The edges are burnt at the edges... very "sayang"....
Imperfect..... How to sell? 
Have to go into own family's stomach, no choice.... 
LOL....
The END RESULT... 
For RM60, I think I can get at least 2 containers of 
PERFECT ALMOND FLAKES COOKIES outside.... 
But then... Never Try, Never Know, right?
Don't think I want to do this again.... 
Too sweet for my liking... 
*Ting*
I have something else in mind!!

  3. Nice try, Claire! I'm not good at baking too, so it's alright. Dropping by to wish you the best of 2017! xoxo

  4. Claire, I read somewhere that you have to use aluminium foil to line it first. Make sure the foil is a bit larger so you can actually cover the edges so it wont get burnt.

  5. Well, at least you can nibble on the bits from the jar. This brand is not one to buy!

  6. Hahahah! Sometimes it's so much less hassle buying rather than baking. That's my motto where CNY cookies are concerned. ­čśť

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Exploring The Sea Cruise Royal Caribbean

CRUISING ALONG.... Once we deposited our bags in our cabins, we had our buffet meal at the Hammerjack restaurant and exactly at 4pm, we heard a loud Horn signal...  ITS TIME TO SAIL ALONG THE PACIFIC OCEAN! And while the ship started to sail, we humans started to walk and explore.... to familarize ourselves inside the ship....  Elevators on each side of the ship....  Making my mark....  On another side....  We walked along to check out our food outlets... This Promenade Cafe  had became our regular joint .... We like to sit there enjoying our hot drinks and desserts... Free flow of food day and night.... Passing through the bars to the casino... The casino will open only when the ship is in international waters...  At one of the jackpot machines... I wonder if they are real?? But they are only $1 bundles... Then we went up to the highest floor.... The swimming deck.... Taken against the sun.... Nice sunset in the evening.... The Happy Trio!

First Day In The Royal Caribbean Cruise To Mexico

ROW ROW ROW YOUR BOAT.... gently down the sea....  Royal Caribbean, it is my second time following this giant vessel, the first time was from Singapore to Phuket, that was a very nice cruise.  So when my son mentioned that he found a good deal online, this time to Mexico, I agreed without hesitation.  Let's Go! A three nights stay with food and lodging only cost around $250 per person with at least one senior in per room.  Meals were either buffet style or fine dining, we can choose and cafes were opened 24 hours for us to rest and relax.  How not to resist... LOL...  And so here we are... just one week after landing in US, I was on the sea....  Looks small from afar...  It was a giant vessel with at least 14 floors.... On the way to embarking after Custom Clearance...  Our room for the next three nights....  Small and cosy.... And adjoining to my son's family room through a door...  The one with balcony cost a bit more...  A short briefing about safety after we checked in....
