6 Days 5 Nights Relax at Chiang Mai (Day 1) | 废人废生活的清迈6天5夜行 (第一天)

Day 1 With Thai Airway, we fly at 8:10am early morning from Penang, arrived and transit Bangkok at 8:50am. Fly from Bangkok at 10:40am, we had arrived Chiang Mai at 11:50am. The total flight journey including transit time just took us about 5 hours, compare with Air Asia, longer time spent for transiting is actually a big waste. This is also another reason why we chosen Thai Airway. 第一天 我们乘搭泰航,早上八点十分的班机从槟城飞往曼谷,抵达时间为八点五十分。再乘搭十点四十分的班机转机飞往清迈,抵达时间是十一点五十分。槟城与清迈时差是一个小时。以短短的五个小时我们就能顺利抵达清迈。这也是我们选择泰航的其中一个原因。   By the time we touched down at Chiang Mai, taxi driver that we reserved through hotel already waited us at Airport. We quickly grab a free phone sim card and local map, then proceed to our first hotel, Baannamping. On the way to hotel, taxi driver dropped us at local market to buy some fruits, cup noodles and junk food. 当我们抵达清迈机场,司机已经正在等待迎接我们。我们快速的取了当地免费电话卡及地图,就前往Baannamping住宿。途中,我们请求司机停放我们在当地巴刹,购买些水果。我们买了三包各20Baht的水果,准备回旅馆享用。再到隔壁的Tesco Lotus Express买些杯面及零食,就回到旅馆。 Fruits, junk foods and cup noodles After checked in to hotel, we had our lunch at hotel's restaurant. The meals are not as cheap as what we had expected. A plate of fried noodle Pad Thai is 150Baht, fried rice is 150Baht, apple juice is 85Baht. For taste wise, fried rice is the best, although it does not look attractive and portion is very small, but it really tastes superb. Pad Thai is their local food with sweet and salty taste. The noodle is actually thin version of our koay teow. We expect for fresh apple juice, but it was just a juice from box packet. 抵达旅馆放下包包后,我们就到他们的食堂用午餐。打开菜谱,发觉价钱并没有想象中便宜。以为一盘饭面只需50Baht左右,但并非如此。由于肚子已在打鼓,所以就点了一盘炒饭150Baht,一盘炒面Pad Thai 150Baht,及一杯苹果汁85Baht。 等了一片刻,食物终于送上,果汁有点让我失望,原以为是新鲜果汁,但其实是盒装倒出来的。炒面是当地的食物,带点咸及甜味,觉得很不错。但,最令人难以忘怀的是炒饭,看下去白白的并没什么特别,但味道超好,超香。只可惜分量太少了,想再来多一盘又觉得有点贵。就这样吃完了我们清迈的第一餐。 Apple juice Fried rice Pad thai After meal, we returned to our hotel room, started enjoy our free and easy life. After rest, we borrowed motor bike from hotel to Baan Tawai Village. This place sells many wood products and we like those wooden product so much. If you like wooden product, this is the right place for you! 吃饱后,我们回房休息,开始废了起来,这无忧无虑的感觉真好。废够后,我们向工作人员借了电单车,问了方向后,就到附近的Baan Tawai Village瞎逛。途中不知正确位置,就询问当地居民,他都很乐意的为我们指明方向。没多久,我们抵达目的地,当地所卖的木制物品,比我们想象的还多,只可惜很多都是带不回的,比如座椅橱柜等等,但也有些小样物品,就如灯,装饰品,礼品,服装等。我们购买了木制吊饰品,80Baht一个以作为纪念。   The shops at Baan Tawai closed at 5pm. After shopping, we went to night market near to our hotel. It is a small night market but there are plenty types of food. Foods are cheap and delicious too. Papaya salad 25Baht, fried port skin 20Baht, pork ball 10Baht for 10pcs, fried "yao zha kuay" and pandan custard 13Baht, egg tart15Baht, crispy hat biscuit 10Baht, sago dessert 5Baht. We returned to hotel to enjoy the foods we bought, we liked most of them such as the appetizing papaya salad. We faced some difficultly when purchased papaya salad, we do not understand their language and want to ask them the price for papaya salad, we asked the aunty "How Much?", she did not understand us at all, and pointed us what they sell. I looked at the menu and point at number "25", she knocked her head, from there we guess it is 25 baht. Although we faced communication problem, but their help and positive attitude had warm our heart. Unlike many other places, when you ask and nego for price, but in the end you decided not to buy, you will get scold by the shop owner, but we did not see this happen in Chiang Mai. 逛了没多久,差不多傍晚五点,店铺开始关闭了。我们前往当地的巴刹购买晚餐。由于第一次逛当地夜市,看见当地的食物,即便宜,看试又美味,所以很兴奋地,买了一样又一样。当中有木瓜沙拉25Baht,炸猪皮20Baht,猪肉丸10Baht10粒,油条和Pandan Custard 13Baht,蛋塔15Baht,香脆帽子饼10Baht,沙谷甜品5Baht,及水。看,都很便宜吧?买完后,我们回到酒店享用晚餐。木瓜沙拉超好吃,是由青木瓜,红番茄,青茄子等,再加上各种调味品所调出来的。酸酸甜甜非常开胃。还记得我们买沙拉时,问他们"How Much?",他们完全听不明白我们问什么,只在比手画脚告诉我们她在卖什么,后来是看到牌上的价钱表,随便指一指才能让她明白。虽然语言完全不通,但他们用心来明白我们的疑问,及路人的乐心帮忙,温软了我们的心。至于其他的小贩,也是非常的友善,态度非常好,当你提问问题,或者购买东西时,他们都是以微笑来对待你。不只如此,就算问了不买,他们也OkOk笑笑回应你,并不会给你脸色看,和香港人实在是天地之差呢。吃完晚餐,我们继续废,就这样过了清迈的第一天。 Market near Baan Namping Fried "yao zha kuay" and pandan custard Crispy hat biscuit Our dinner Milk tea

IMG_20130721_103322After Kobe trip with wonderful kobe beef dinner on 3 years back, I have another chance to visit Kobe again to enjoy world's famous beef steak. From forum and internet, travellers' feedback on kobe beef lunch cannot beat dinner set. With previous experience which Camus and myself will never forget in our life, I decided to give lunch a try and then make a comparison between set lunch and set dinner.

I did some survey before go for kobe beef lunch, Wakkoqu restaurant has many good review. So my plan is to visit this restaurant. We arrived at Sannomiya station on that day before 12pm and would like to have short walk around that area before go for lunch. When we just arrived at Sannomiya Hankyu Station, we saw a long queue outside another kobe beef restaurant. We walked closer to look at the menu, the price is more cheaper compare with Wakkoqu. I believed it has some good reasons why people queue for the meal. We followed the queue and had our kobe beef steak lunch. The restaurant I mentioned here is Steak Land.

IMG_20130721_103016

We were arranged to dine at second floor, they served in tepanyaki style and guests were sitted around the table while the chef will cook and serve at center area. After put order, they served us salad, miso soup, steak sauce and plain water. When they brought two big pieces of beef (for 4 serving) to the table, I was regretted with my decision made. By looking at the kobe beef, it looks not fresh with brown in colour. Oh no, my main target for this trip gone. I had to stop blaming myself at that moment and pray hard that the beef will turn out good in taste. Compare with previous kobe beef dinner, I had to agreed that lunch is really not as good as dinner.

After looking at how the chef cook the steak (obviously not as "proffesional" as our kobe beef dinner's chef), I started to enjoy my meal. I changed my mind after my first bite on the medium cook kobe beef, it was still soooooo soft and melt in mouth. With 2980yen for this set lunch, I can say I was satisfied with it at this price. Of course, if you aim for better quality and environment, I would recommend Mouriya Restaurant which we went for dinner.

After the lunch, we proceeded with our trip at Kobe area. We walked from Sannomiya to China Town, then to Harbourland. Then end our one day trip at Kobe. I wish to return again for next Kobe beef romantic dinner with my dear Camus.

CranLC_1When I looked back my post on Hawflakes Layer Cake, I just realised that it has been more than one year since I last baked my Indonesia layer cake. I bought a can of butter for baking layer cake and kept until it was expired. I quickly grab it to bake for my next Indonesia Layer Cake with Cranberry.

This time, I follow exactly the recipe in my blog too, with slight modification, I change the filling to cranberries. For my hawflakes and prune layer cake, I managed to bake a total of 8 layers cake but for this one, I get only 7 layers. It was still very delicious and as good as last two cakes! I spent less than 3 hours for this cake. You can substitude cranberries with raisins too if you like as the taste of cranberries in this cake taste very similar to raisins.

Day4_5Day4

Today we will check out from Baan Namping after 3 nights stay here. Today breakfast came with 2 choices, one American breakfast and one soup rice. We get one each. Soup porridge was good but compare with American breakfast, we still preferred American breakfast as the bacon tasted really good. We spent our morning relaxing in hotel and proceed to Chiang Mai city with taxi (Song Thaew) arranged by hotel's owner.

第四天

住了三晚Baan Namping,今天是时候退房了。今天的早餐有美式及饭汤两种,我们各点了一个。虽说饭汤不错吃,但比较起来,还是喜欢美式早餐, 因为培根实在是太好吃了。吃完早餐,我们回房待了大半天,才乘坐酒店安排好的双条出城去。

Day4_2

Taxi driver dropped us in front of our hotel in city, Baan Hanibah. This hotel located in walking distance to Sunday market, a super big and famous night market in Chiang Mai city on every Sunday. After checked in to Baan Hanibah, we booked a package to elephant show on next day, then we went to Sunday market.

双条直接把我们停在将要入住的酒店外,Baan Hanibah是我们在古城内住的酒店。这酒店和周日市场的距离不远,步行就可,挺方便的。我们登记好一切,放好行李后,让柜台服务员替我们定购隔天的骑大象配套,就往周日市场方向去。

While we were hunting for our lunch, we found one local shop selling local food. We got ourselves a bowl of Chiang Mai famous Kao Soi and tomyam seafood, together with a coconut drink.

我们走着找午餐吃,由于才三点左右,周日市场还没开,我们就步入一家卖当地食物的餐厅。看了看菜谱,点了当地著名的Kao Soi以及一碗东炎,再来一粒椰水。

Day4_13

Kao soi is a fried noodle in curry and coconut soup, with thick coconut taste and slightly sweet. Compare with Penang curry noodle, the coconut flavour is much stronger. Add some chilies paste if you like spicy.

Kao Soi是碗类式咖喱椰浆的汤面,面条是油炸过的,香浓带点甜味的椰浆汤淋在炸面上,非常好吃。比起我们的咖喱面,那浓椰浆来的更香滑可口,要是喜欢辣,可加入辣椒。

Day4_5

Day4_6

Tomyam is added with coconut too, delicious. It is different compare with our local tomyam, which is more towards sour and spicy.

至于东炎呢,也是加入椰浆的,非常好吃,比起我们的酸辣东炎,真的不同。

Day4_4

Tomyam

由于两碗都是椰浆汤的,吃多了开始有点腻,再加上我们的椰水,全都是椰。要是缺乏胆固醇的你,这样的一餐肯定对你有帮助。这就是我们丰富的椰浆午餐啦。

 

Wat Pra Singh is one of the most famous temples in Chiang Mai. We walked around temper without enter to temper hall as need to pay for entrance fee. There are some stalls selling cloth, CD, foods at side of the temple too. I bought myself a pant from one of the stall here.

吃饱后,我们前往Wat Pra Singh,当地著名寺庙。由于入庙是需交付入门票的,所以我们只在外面看看而已。寺庙旁边也有一些小摊口,我在这儿买了一件短裤。

Day4_9

We started our shopping at Sunday market after visited to Wat Pra Singh. It was really big market as mentioned by people who had been there before. Many of the things are repeated at few different stalls.

从Wat Pra Singh出来后,夜市摊口已陆陆续续开档了,我们就开始逛了起来。逛着逛着,实在是很兴奋,夜市实在是太大了,有种走不完的感觉。只是Camus的脚肿痛,走起路来很辛苦,所以走了一半路程,我们回酒店休息,又继续逛另外一半的夜市。虽说摊口很多,但很多也卖一样的东西,要是你在这挡买不成,可以在其他摊口找到。

我们多半买吃的,食物便宜又好吃,吃得不亦乐乎。其中Wat Pan Tao和 Wat Chedi Luang是坐落在夜市的街旁,所以我们也在这时走去看看。

Speg_3Years! It has been years I never touch on spaghetti, never walk into Italian restaurant (except for pizza). I am phobia to spaghetti after went for Italian buffet in Japan in year 2009, the Italian buffet came with free flow of pizza and spaghetti, somehow I guess I ate too much of spaghetti, and that caused me stop spaghetti for 5 years!

Last week, sitting in office, I suddenly smeeeell spaghetti (my brain pop out spaghetti)...then feel like eating the spaghetti that Camus cooked for me about 7 or 8 years ago. Last weekend, he cooked for me again using the same recipe.

See below for the ingredients and recipe, simple yet delicious!

Speg_4

To cook the sauce, fried garlic and onion in pan, when both ingredients almost golden brown, pour in a can of Campbell mushroom soup, add half can of water and stir well. Add in dried mushroom which has been cut into slices after soak in water until soft. Boil everything and add in a slice of cheedar cheese. Stir evenly.

In separate pan, cook corn, crab stick and beef breakfast lean.

Speg_1

Speg_5

Very delicious beef breakfast lean bought in Jusco

Cook spaghetti in boiling water until it is soft. When everything is done, serve spaghetti with mushroom sauce on plate, add corn, crab stick and beef breakfast lean. Serve hot!

Speg

Now while I am writing the post, I wish to eat another plate of spaghetti again. Next time, maybe I want to have a plate of carbonara spaghetti. Last but not least, thanks my dear for this very delicious spaghetti!
