Easy Egg Tart Recipe

I make it! I make it! After years of phobia, I finally overcome it with this recipe. An egg tart recipe that I found from other blogger. I got the recipe and bought a can of evaporated creamer for quite some times. Last weekend, I decided to bake this recipe. When I saw the egg tarts were nicely came out from my smart oven, I was so happy and feel worth it to bake them in front of hot oven on this super hot weather day. This few weeks, the weather in Penang was so hot. It makes my body hot, temper hot! Thank God that the egg tarts turn out nicely, or else somebody might need to sacrifice and listen to my complain again.

 

Cosway Bread Maker Machine

This is a new bread maker that I bought some times ago. After the first unit of bread maker that I bought from Cosway, this is the 2nd unit that I bought from there. It is mom's birthday present. The new bread maker comes with more functions compare to the first one, and it can make bigger loaf. The additional functions that attract me are "bake cake", "make jam", "bake only". I am not sure how delicious the cake is if you bake with bread maker. Well, I will try it! The "bake only" function is good where you can let the machine prepare the dough at first, and then remove the dough from machine and roll it to small ball (add some filling too), then put back to the machine for "bake only", so you do not need to always make a "Gardenia" or "High 5" bread, and it does not required oven.

 

6 Days 5 Nights Relax at Chiang Mai (Day 5) | 废人废生活的清迈6天5夜行 (第五天)

Day5 Breakfast in Baan Hanibah hotel. 第五天 Baan Hanibah 酒店的早餐。 Today we joined one day trip to elephant show, 1400Baht each person, driver picked us in front of hotel. The package includes bamboo riding, elephant show, visit to long neck village, lunch, ride on oxford and elephant, visit to orchid and butterfly farm. 今天我们参与大象营一日游,一个人是1400Baht,有司机到酒店接我们。这一日游行程包括乘坐竹筒船,看大象表演,参观长颈村,免费午餐,乘坐牛车,骑大象,参观花园及蝴蝶公园。 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。 Elephant show Long neck village is one of the famous spot in Chiang Mai. 长颈村也是我期待的一个景点,觉得这种族很特别,拍上照片肯定有特色,所以就非去不可。 Long neck village 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。 Elephant ride Oxford ride Lady selling drinks in water Bathing for elephant We returned to hotel and end our one day tour after visited to orchid and butterfly farm. 再来就参观花园及蝴蝶公园,之后就会酒店去。   We have our dinner nearby Chiang Mai town, famous pork leg rice. 我们在酒店附近的小贩享用凤飞飞猪脚饭。 Pork leg rice(凤飞飞猪脚饭)location map Famous pork leg rice Semi-transparent hard boil egg Sunset colour egg york 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。 Kalare night bazaar and food center location map Kalare night bazaar & Anusarn Market 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。 Food court at Kalare night bazaar & Anusarn Market Purchase voucher before get your food Food court opposite this building 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。 Tuk tuk

 

Cendol House | Taman Mutiara, BM, Penang

We had our lunch at cendol house on last weekend. Before that, we passed by this shop house but never give them a try. Since they claimed that "We served best cendol in town", so we give it a try. This shop not only sell cendol, but also laksa, nasi lemak, nasi kunyit with curry chicken. Two of us ordered one each to try. Cendol is ok but this small bowl cost RM2. Santan (coconut milk) taste is not very thick but when mix with brown/coconut sugar syrup, it tasted good. Ingredients in cendol include red bean and cendol.

Chadango_2Dango is a Japanese dumpling made from mochiko, rice flour. There are many varieties of dango in Japan and normally three to four dango are often served on a skewer. The texture of the dango is very similar to chinese glutinous flour ball (tang yuan), especially the plain dango, not only the texture, the taste is almost close to tang yuan.

On this post, I would like to share on the Cha Dango from Kyoto, Japan 京の茶だんご. It is a green tea flavour dango where only sells in Kyoto area. I have never see this brand of dango in Tokyo.

8 sticks of Cha Dango in a pack

I bought a pack of cha dango when I visited to Kyoto, it came with 8 sticks in a pack which cost 630yen (about RM24). It was nicely wrap and I think the price is expensive due to the beautiful packing. This is not the first time I ate Cha Dango, the same brand of Cha Dango given by Japanese Colleague from Kyoto was really impressed me. The "Q-ness" texture and green tea taste of the dango was fantastic. I like it!
