First Day Tokyo Asakusa Shrine

MORNING CALL 6AM... and by 7.30, we were out from the hotel to our next destination, that is Asakusa Shrine, one of Tokyo's oldest temple and has been now designated as an important cultural property of Japan.

Oh, I think before we proceeded to the Shrine, we stopped by a park for cherry blossom photo taking, it was just half an hour....
JAL City Hotel where we put up a night.... 
Forgot the name of this place, it is not listed in the itinerary.... 
At the Asakusa Shrine where tourists were here, there and everywhere.... 
Lots of foodstuff and souvenirs... 
No, I did not buy anything here... 
Just tasted some snacks and ice cream.... 
Need to walk a lot but I love it... 
Despite the cold weather, I still wanna try the ice cream!
And of course, snacks here and there... I just could not resist!
For lunch, these were served.... 
Healthy food... oil-less....
Except for some fried chicken... :)
The place we took our lunch....
Next destination... Tokyo Tower!

  2. I love conducted tours, just eat, sleep and follow... Relaxing, and that is what holidays should be. Not so stressful and tiring.

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...
