Goma Dango ごまだんご | Japan Kinkakuji

Is anyone like the Cha Dango that I shared on previous post? Now, I would like to introduced another type of dango. As I mentioned before, there are varities of dangos that can be found in Japan, one is the Cha Dango which is made with green tea. The second type of dango that I am going to share now is black and white version of dango. What is the black and white ball ball stick shown in the picture? Well, the white balls are the dangos which are plain dangos while the blacky is kuro goma (black sesame). It doesn's look tempting to me at all, but since there was a free tasting sample, why should I miss the chance ?

3 Layer Electric Mini Rice Cooker

I bought a mini rice cooker lately, although I have slow cooker, rice cooker and some other types of cookers, I still decided to buy this mini rice cooker, reason is to cook baby porridge in faster and easier way. I had tried to use slow cooker to cook porridge, it took about 3 hours to get ready. Product description: 3 layer cooker come with timer, can cook rice, porridge and baby porridge. The timer function is very useful as we can set it to start cook at preferable time. I first try to cook lunch for Camus and myself before start to use it cook for baby. This is the first meal I cooked with the new cooker, ready marinate beef bought from AEON, steam pumpkin and rice. Simple meal enough for two. Second try with baby porridge, less than 1 hour to get it done, easy to clean too. You can manually set the time to cook longer or shorter (default setting at 55 minutes for baby porridge). Avocado with sweet potato baby porridge I did re-heat baby porridge for dinner too, by changing the setting to cook for 12 minutes. In summary, I really love this mini rice cooker with it's timer, easy to clean, easy to carry and fast to cook functions.

TheRidge_5The Ridge - Teja By The Sea located at Batu Kawan, is a very nice place to enjoy food. We had our dinner there on last weekend with family. By the time we arrived there was already 7.30pm, too bad we missed the sunset view.

We ordered tomyam ayam with 2 bowl of rice, 2 lamb chops, 1 fish and chip and 1 roasted chicken. For drink, we have one big jar of fresh orange juice. Mee udang is recommended by waitress but it was closed after 7pm.

One big claypot of tomyam ayam, RM12. I like the sourness and little sweetness of the tomyam taste, not too spicy. I found the serving is quite proffesional, take note of how they served the white rice. This claypot tomyam is enough for 4-5 person according to waitress.

Bamboo riding

Every activity was very attractive to us except for visit to orchid and butterfly farm. We truly respect the elephants' trainers as their elephants are all very well trained. You will experience how elephant drawing with their long nose.

除了参观花园及蝴蝶公园,每项都是很特别的。大象表演简直是让人大开眼界,真不能不佩服工作人员们平日的训练,看上去大象们即聪明又很能听指令。

After visit to long neck village, we had our lunch. It was buffet style lunch with fried chicken, rice, drink, fruit, etc.

参观完长颈村后,我们就吃午餐。午餐是自由式的,有不同的简单肉菜,白饭,水果,茶水等等。

 

After lunch, we ride on oxford and elephant. It was a very scary experience, I was really afraid that the oxford and elephant will do something to me, or I will fall down from elephant. Scary...

吃饱后我们乘坐牛车和骑大象。前者已让我觉得心慌慌,担心牛车会翻车。后者更加让我不放心,想象自己坐在高处,慢慢的在"空中"荡漾,真的很恐怖,又担心大象突然发癫,把我们甩下。还记得有一幕,当大象正从陆地下水的时候,大象前脚突然下去有深度的河,镇了一大下,吓得半条命,喊了好大声,一直期盼快点完成这路程。想想,真的很恐怖,要是有畏高的人,肯定比我还害怕。

After rest in hotel, we went to Kalare night bazaar & Anusarn Market with Song Thaew. The journey cost 20Baht per person.

休息了片刻,我们乘搭双条到Kalare night bazaar & Anusarn Market。不会太近的路程,双条费用只需20Baht一个人。

The things sell in Kalare night bazaar are more expensive compare to Saturday and Sunday market. We had our dinner at food court before back to hotel.

我们觉得Kalare night bazaar的价钱比夜市场的还要贵,吃的用的也比较贵,所以就走马看花而已。走了好久,都不见好吃的,直到要回前,来到美食中心,所以就在这儿吃饱后才回酒店。

Tuk tuk, a "mini" taxi in Chiang Mai, with one driver and up to 2 passengers at the back. Like combination of motorbike and trishaw, is my favorite transport in Chiang Mai. I fall in love with this vehicle after my first ride on it. It costs 60Baht for two of us from night bazaar back to our hotel in Chiang Mai city. Best to take it at night with your love one, windy windy feel... "feng" left "feng" right...romantic...I have a simple wish, you know? I just wish I can own a tuk tuk, drive here and there, or sometime hire somebody to fetch me and dear Camus "feng" here "feng" there. Too bad, the distance from night bazaar to our hotel is too short, I don't really fully enjoy and we had already arrived at the destination. Now, can someone tell me how much does one tuk tuk cost in Chiang Mai?

我们选择tuk tuk车回酒店,60Baht一辆,挺便宜的。我一坐就喜欢上了这tuktuk车,机车感觉轻轻的在路上奔驰,夜里凉风吹来,好舒服,司机走的路线和双条不同,都是走小巷,所以很快就抵达酒店。tuk tuk车,我真是爱死你了。

IMG_20130722_214459It is not healthy to eat instant noodle, I know. It does not contain nutrision and not good for digestion too. I try to avoid eating it but once a while, I think no problem. One night, when I shop for my dinner at nearby convenient store, I can't find any bento available. At that time, I found instant cup noodle rice which was quite special. I bought one and bring back apartment for my dinner on that night.

It is rather convenient and fast to cook. Just add water to the cup rice and cook it in microwave oven. You can consume it after 2 minutes. Inside the cup rice, it has dried egg, dried shrimp, shallot and dried meat. It also came with a pack of sauce oil for you to mix with the rice after cook. So, if you do not want to eat instant noodle, you can try instant rice.

Next post, I would like to share about making your own cup noodle. You can choose what ingredients to put in your cup noodle and what soup base you like. Stay tune!

Butter Cake Recipe (Egg Separation Method) PDF Print E-mail

ButterCake_2Butter cake is one of my family favourite cake, I used to bake it years ago with "Buttercup" or "Farmcow" butter. This few years, I found it hard to bake nice butter cake with this types of butter. I am not sure what's wrong with it, it was either my baking skill get worse? or the weather that makes the buttle melt easily? or the butter itself? I bought a 500g better quality butter to keep in fridge and plan to bake for butter cake. This time I get "SCS" butter.

When I read through some bloggers' blog, I found one recipe that is famous among many bloggers, and this method using egg separation method. I decided to give it a try.

With no regret, I am very happy with the result, I like this type of cake which gives a very fluffy texture and rich in buttery flavour. Thanks to wendyinkk for sharing Mrs NgSK's recipe. I really love it so much!!!

Ingredients:
230g salted butter, softened
150g caster sugar
4 egg yolks (grade B egg)
200g self raising flour, sifted (I used 200g cake flour+3.5tsp baking powder)
60ml fresh milk

4 egg whites (grade B egg)
50g caster sugar

Method:
1. Preheat oven to 170°C. Line bottom and sides of 8 inch cake pan with parchment paper.
2. Cream butter and sugar till pale and fluffy, scrape side and bottom of mixing bowl as necessary. Add egg yolk 1 at a time. Beat well after each addition.

3. Put half the sifted flour and mix on low speed until combined. Add milk in two additions and mix until well combined. Add in balance of flour.

ButterCake_4

4. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk egg whites till soft peak. Gradually add in 50 g sugar, beat until egg whites form stiff peaks.
5. Put half the egg whites in butter mixture and mix on low speed, pour in balance of egg whites and fold with spatula.
6. Pour batter into baking pan and level.
7. Bang baking pan on table top to remove big air bubbles.
8. Bake at pre-heated oven for 45 minutes or until skewer inserted and come out clean.

My cake has little crack on top when bake in oven for about 40 minutes, I don't really care about this as most importantly it was very delicious, look at the photo to see the cake's texture, lovely!
