This park is huge and is divided into two sections we went first to the marine park which had many shows which included the dolphin show, sea lion show ,orangutan show,bird show, elephant show and etc. But we managed to watch few shows only.

Sawdust Pudding 木糠布甸

Sawdust Pudding木糠布甸
The other day I was stumbled up this pudding recipe, understand this is a famous pudding in Macau. Sawdust Pudding aka Serradura is actually a layered chilled dessert made up of a sweetened, vanilla whipped cream and crushed Marie biscuits. I immediately try out this recipe since this recipe requires all simple ingredients. I also missed Marie biscuits as I have so long did not eat this biscuit.

Nasi Lemak bungkus, one more please!

Nasi Lemak bungkus

Nowadays it is hard to find a good and simple nasi lemak (coconut rice with sambal chili) that wrapped with banana leaf, brown paper with wax is widely use instead. We actually prefer those very basic and simple nasi lemak that comes with coconut rice and simple sambal chili and wrap with banana leaf.

Choux with durian cream

Choux with durian cream

Today, I made this choux with durian cream again after my family asking more as they have not eaten enough when i made this yesterday. They especially like the "Craquelin" that place on top of the choux, a thin layer of brown sugar crumbs. Thanks to Chef Guillaume Lejeune from Academy of Pastry Arts Malaysia for this lovely recipe which i learnt on the 1st day of "Tart" class that I attended last week.

Tiger temple and River Kwai, Bangkok Thailand

pictures from iphone 344

When i posted Maeklong Railway market, few bloggers said this place look scary. Let me tell you this place i going to post here even more scary, see Desmond sitting on a tiger !!


About 3 hours from Bangkok by road (depending on traffic snarls) the Tiger Temple was an eye opener. It wasn't really a temple at all, but more a wildlife park with Buddhist Monks and lots of animals. There were deer, wild boar and other animals roaming the large enclosed land. They have about 90+ tigers in this temple.
