6 Days 5 Nights Relax at Chiang Mai (Day 4) | 废人废生活的清迈6天5夜行 (第四天)

Day4 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。 Soup rice 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。 Song theaw Chiang Mai wall Day tour package Kaosoi restaurant, Wat Phra Sing, Wat Phan Tao, Wat Chedi Luang and Sunday market (red lines) location map 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。 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。 Kao soi 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。 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。 Wat Pra Singh 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。 Sunday market The same cuttle fish uncle from Saturday market Yakisoba Local dessert Fried worm / cacing Cute pao Delicious bihun with pork skin Sunday market We get some pants from here too, but mainly we bought foods from here. Wat Pan Tao and Wat Chedi Luang are located along Sunday market too, we visited these temples on Sunday night. 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。 Wat Chedi Luang Wat Pan Tao

Ampang Homeland Yong Tau Foo 釀豆腐 | Ampang, Kuala Lumpur

Yong Tau Foo (stuffed bean curd) is a Hakka dish famous in Ampang, Kuala Lumpur. Tau Foo is stuffed with fish (or meat or pork) paste, hence the name "Yong Tau Foo". Since then, variety of vegetables or fried fritters is stuffed with the fish paste, but all are categories as "Yong Tau Foo". Two weeks ago, we travelled to KL for food hunting and shopping. Among the food we hunted in KL, Yong Tau Foo suits our taste the most! This was the first meal we hunted for when we first arrived in KL.  

 

Indonesia Layer Cake with Hawflakes Recipe

After prune Indonesia layer cake, I am confident to bake layer cake again. This time, I baked Indonesia layer cake with hawflakes. Recipe follow the same as prune layer cake, except that prune was replaced with hawflakes. After first lesson learnt from prune layer cake, this time, with more cares and precaution steps, I am happy to say that it was a very successful and delicious one. This round, every single layer is baked until even darker brown, about 6~7 minutes per layer. I baked at upper level of oven. Hawflakes were arranged at 3rd and 6th layers. Melted butter was brushed for every two layers. I managed to bake a total of 8 layers at 8" square cake tin, every layers were measured evenly with one cup of mixture.

GomaDango_2Is 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 Laughing?

 

***after free tasting***

......Mmmmnnn, it tasted good, the kuro goma was melted in my mouth and the mixture of "Q-Q" dango that I like so much were perfect match. After ate the free sample, even though it was delicious, we do not buy it. We do not want to carry it to other places as we were heading to other destination. On that day, we just bought one stick at store outside the temple for about 100yen per stick, thinking to get a box of goma dango at other station in Kyoto. Well, shopping in Japan is like playing an auction game. Once you spot the thing you like, you should get it immediately. If you don't, you might lost the thing you want FOREVER! Yes, we were regretted for not buying on the spot. We do not see the goma dango anywhere else. Was really dissapointed.

GomaDango

Kuro goma dango

After complaining, I realised that I have not introduce the place we ate the goma dango Embarassed. We found the goma dango at Kinkakuji Temple, Kyoto. Not sure is there any other places that sell the similar dango, appreciate if anyone knows and willing to share it with us.

Ermm, my impression on the blacky dango was changed after the first try. I would like to quote a Hokkien phrase to describe the goma dango, "o kim o kim, ju kua ju jip sim" Tongue out ...muaakkss muaakkksss... Kiss
