Cinque Terre 五漁村 (Monterosso, Riomaggiore) , Italy 2013 意大利自由行


I didn't know Cinque Terre (CT) until I read Terri (A Daily Obsession) 's Italy travel post. And I know I must visit this beautiful fishing villages along the rugged coast of north-west Italy. What I planned was staying at Florence but make a day trip to CT. At the same time, we also can stop at Pisa since train to La Spezia Centrale also pass by Pisa.

Wet Mee Siam (rice vermicelli in spicy sour gravy) 汤汁米暹

 
There is a shop in Klang serving nice Mee Siam for breakfast, and they have wet version instead of the usual dry version. The spicy and sour gravy pour on the dried Mee Siam, so appetizing ! Now I prefer wet version than the dry version here.

Canal Grande, Ponte di Rialto, Train station Venezia Santa Lucia, Venice / Venezia Italy 2013 威尼斯意大利自由行

I have to quickly update the Italy travel post, as my memory started to fade out..since this trip was in Apr 2013.
We only stayed one night at Venice (because too many places to visit ^_^). The next morning, we dropped the idea of travel to nearby island like Burano island (colourful painted houses) and Murano island ( famous of glass making). Instead we chosen to explore this beautiful island by foot.

Kuih Pandan Cara Manis (gula Melaka version) 斑兰小甜糕

 
I immediately bookmarked this recipe when I saw Joceline prepared this kuih.  So I can also make use of the kuih bahulu mould that sitting in the cabinet for too long. I use gula Melaka (palm sugar )instead of white sugar as suggested, it turned out like eating ondeh ondeh,  so this kuih has more coconut taste than pandan taste, sweet and light.

Homemade pandan paste 自制香兰精


This post just to record down the Homemade pandan paste (pandan concentrated juices) that I usually made.

Colourful Snowskin Mooncakes 彩色冰皮月饼

This is my 1st batch of mooncakes this year, made this for my two sons and my sister who prefer snowskin mooncake. This time, I found a very easy to handle snowskin recipe. At first, I was thinking to make 100% natural colours of mooncake, but the end, I have to replace some with food colouring to bring out the nice colour tone. Nevertheless, I was happy to see the natural nice blue from blue pea flower (bunga telang).

Pain Autumn ( wholemeal Artisan Bread) 全麦面包

Personally I prefer French bread more than Asian soft bread, example like Baguette or Pain de champagne a.k.a country bread, love the crisp crust and a chewy and soft crumb. Since I learned how to make overnight sponge dough, I have been using this sponge dough to make this type of French bread and I usually made wholemeal type.

Pandan Salmon 香兰鲑鱼



Instead of making the normal pandan chicken (spiced chicken wrapped with screwpine leaves), this time I tried something different, pandan salmon which is rich in Omega 3.
