6 Days 5 Nights Relax at Chiang Mai (Day 2) | 废人废生活的清迈6天5夜行 (第二天)

Day 2 We got a warm welcome by birds outside our room in our second day in Chiang Mai. It was a cooling and wonderful day. We enjoyed our American style breakfast after woke up in later morning. The breakfast came with fried egg, bacon, big sausage and vegetable. It was very delicious. Apart from that, they have coffee and tea for you to choose. Yogurt, orange juice, fruit, oat, milk are buffet style. It was such a wonderful experience to enjoy our breakfast in this beautiful place. 第二天 唧唧唧,小鸟的叫声显示清晨已来到。美好的早晨,清凉的天气,让我们赖床赖得好舒服。这天,我们睡到自然醒,梳洗后再去用早餐。酒店准备美式早餐,有蛋,培根,大香肠及蔬菜,非常好吃,尤其是培根,香咸脆滋味,吃了还想再吃。另外,又有咖啡或茶让你选。奶酪,橙汁,水果,麦片,牛奶则任拿。在这大自然的环境下享用那么丰富的早餐,实在是一种大享受呢。   After finish breakfast, we walked back to hotel room. Today, we rent a motorbike from hotel again as it is really convenient to have your own bike. You can travel to any places that you like at your own convenient time. Although Camus does not have a motor license, but he still can fetch me to go here and there, it was really romantic which we can't experience in our own country, an unforgettable experience we had there! 用完早餐,我们再慢步回房休息。由于昨晚的骑电单车经验让我们觉得很方便,想去那,就去那,所以我们租借了酒店的电单车,自己到处逛逛。没有电单车执照的Camus,能在清迈骑着电单车,载着我到处去,是我们在我国所不曾体验的。这又是我们在清迈的另一种新体验,浪漫式的游玩清迈,体会当地人的生活,肯定毕生难忘。   At first we were worried and thinking not to rent a bike as we afraid there will be a road block, carry helmet everywhere while you travel is not a convenient way also. But the hotel owner told us normally won't have road block, and if have just told police we forgot to bring license. We also can't believe the helmet can just hang on motor bike, 99.99% you won't lost your helmet! After get the assurance from hotel owner, we rent their bike and continue our journey. 其实早前还在顾虑租不租电单车,一是担心警察遮路,二是担心钢盔领在手上游玩时不便。但问了问酒店的人后,他们都说警察多数不会查牌,钢盔也可以随便放置在电单车上,所以我们更加放心的租下电单车了。   Our first stop on this day was Royal Flora Ratchaphruek. When we arrived there, we saw many local people just leave their helmet on top of their bike without any lock. From there you can see how safe Chiang Mai is. Compare with our country, don't say you leave it on bike, even if you hang it on the hook under your seat, which consider lock it, you will end up getting back your helmet "ring" without the helmet and be prepared to spend another few ten or hundred ringgit to get your new helmet. 我们骑着电单车出发到Royal Flora Ratchaphruek,凉风习习,实在令人兴奋。抵达后,停放好电单车,观察周围的电单车,当地人还真的就把钢盔摆放在车上而已,真是不能不佩服当地的治安。要是在我国,别说摆放,就算你锁上了,可恶的小偷还是把钢盔给剪断。 Royal Flora Ratchaphruek map We bought an entrance ticket which cost 100 Baht each. Inside the park, we get a 20 Baht track ticket to ride on track and round the park. The track will stop you at few stations, you can go to every station to have short walking trip. There are many types of flowers and plantation in the park. Among all, attracted me to most was the big winter melon. 我们买了两张各100Baht的入门票后,前往里边去。再购买两张各20Baht的车票,就可由司机载着里面逛,省下很多脚力。园中花草树木多得很,其中一个令人振奋的是大冬瓜,司机载着我们经过该段路时,所有人都哗哗声,这也难怪,冬瓜也实在是太大了吧。 For lunch, we arrived at another local market (Hang Dong market) to have their local food. That market was not a tourist place, hence all menus are written in Thai language. Good thing was they have picture, hence we simply pointed at the picture to order our lunch. From that bowl of noodle, it looked plain and simple, but it was very spicy. After ate, I immediately ran for toilet *diarrhea*. But, I like the noodle so much and it was one of the food that I miss so much, I will return for it again in future if I have the chance. 走完花园,肚子也都饿了,我们骑着电单车到处找吃。最后,我们到达另一个巴刹 (Hang Dong巴刹),享用当地的汤面。食谱都是泰文,就只能看着照片随意点来吃。这碗汤面实在是辣,但非常好吃,也许是太辣了,吃完不久就拉肚子,但,它却是我一直还在怀念的味道。这感觉淡淡又辣辣的,普普通通的一碗面,竟然赢取了我的心啊。 After lunch, we returned to Baan Tawai, the place we went on our first day in Chiang Mai. We bought 2 wall lights at 300 Baht, cheap. 吃完后,我们再回到昨天去过的Baan Tawai, 购买壁灯。两盏灯才用了300Baht,觉得很便宜呢。 Baan Tawai map Then, we returned to night market near our hotel to get our dinner again. 之后,又回到昨天的夜市购买晚餐。   After meal, we had our Thai massage in our room, I expected a relaxing massage, which I experienced at Bali before, but it was a torturing one. I shout from beginning until the end, it was a "pain"ful experience. But one hour massage only cost us 300 Baht. 吃饱后,我们在房内做泰式按摩,以为是舒服的按摩,结果痛得大叫,真是拿钱来折磨自己啊。但一个小时只是300Baht,挺便宜的,按完也觉得身体松了点。   After that, we planed our trip for next day. 之后,就计划隔天的行程,由于来前没什么计划的,所以当场计划隔天行程。

 

Pandan Chiffon Cake Recipe

This is a long keep recipe that I baked few months ago. Baked it together with other chiffon cakes during my chiffon cake study. I get this recipe from Kitchen Tigress, I found her blog from youtube while I was searching for video on how to make chiffon cake.       Recipe 100g pandan leaves, use only soft and moist young leaves 70g freshly squeezed coconut milk, undiluted 180g egg whites ½tsp cream of tartar 50g sugar 60g egg yolks 50g sugar 60g corn oil ¼tsp salt 100g cake flour (sifted with baking powder) 1tsp baking powder Method 1. Blend pandan leaves with coconut milk and 1 tbsp water. Strain pandan leave and get green liquid. Set aside green liquid, which should weigh 95 g. 2. Add sugar into egg yolks, immediately whisk with hand whisk until pale and light. 3. Add in corn oil, mix well. 4. Add in green pandan coconut liquid, mix well. 5. Sift in flour, baking powder and salt, stir until well combined. 6. Whisk egg white with electrical hand mixer until big bubbles form, add in cream of tartar. 7. Continue whisk from medium to high speed until small bubbles form (egg white is white in colour now) . 8. Slowly add in sugar, continue whisk at high speed until soft peak formed. 9. Add 1/3 of meringue into egg yolk mixture, mix gently with hand whisk until well combined, you will get a light mixture. 10. Change hand whisk to spatula, fold in 1/2 of remaining meringue. GENTLY fold with egg yolks batter until 50% combined (you will still see white meringue now). 11. Add all remaining meringue and fold GENTLY with spatula again until well combined. I did in in this way: spatula cut mixture into center all the way to bottom bowl, scrap from bottom along bowl side toward you. Rotate bowl few degree and repeat this action until well combined. (your mixture should be very light and volumic now). 12. Pour batter into 18cm chiffon cake pan, level the surface. Bang mixing bowl against worktop 2-3 times to remove air bubbles. Run a chopstick round side of tin to remove more air bubbles. Level and smooth top. Bake in preheated oven at 160C at lowest rack with fan forced for 40-45 minutes.   13. Remove cake pan and invert pan immediately, cool completely before remove cake from pan. Result The cake should be evenly green but I saw some white spot, it was due to unbalance mix during step 11, meringue not mix properly with egg yolk batter. Compare with other recipe which I used 5 eggs, this recipe used only 4 eggs. It is shorter compare with 5 eggs chiffon cake on right (picture below). I prefer 5 eggs recipe. Left: 4 eggs recipe; Right: 5 eggs recipe

 

Black Sesame Chiffon Cake

God: Girl, this is not the way of making chiffon cake, you need more practise. Arrrrhhhhh! Another dissapointment when baking chiffon cake. Why? Why? Why? ... Why my chiffon cake doesn't rise up high? What happened to it? Problem with my egg york mixture? Egg white? Or my mixing method? Oven temperature? Baking time? ... I can't give myself an answer, bake chiffon cake is a tough job to me, my chiffon cake always sink after removed from my smart oven.

 

The Ridge - Teja By The Sea | Batu Kawan

The 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.
