Nara Koen 奈良公園 and Nara's deer, Osaka Japan

On our last day in Osaka, we decided to visit Nara park instead of Kobe. At first we were thinking to try the most expensive Kobe beef in Kobe, but last minutes dropped the idea since we have never seen a park that has hundreds of freely roaming deer.

Lunch at Arashiyama 岚山, Togetsukyo Bridge 游渡月桥, Kyoto Japan

Once we came out from Kitano Tenmangu shrine, we checked through the map and realized that the next destination Arashiyama was located quite far from here, and it seem we have to change few buses to get there. In order not to waste our value last day in Kyoto, we decided to catch a cab to go there. Soon we arrived, we went for lunch first before heading to Bamboo forest of Sagano 嵯峨野竹林.

We almost lost our way, called for help from this group of students, they were so nice and lead us there since they were also on their way to this temple.

Light cheddar cheesecake 车打芝士蛋糕

When i saw Honey Bee Sweet baked this light cheddar cheesecake, remind me that i have so long did not bake this cake. When i started my blog in 2008, i was totally new in baking, the only cake i know how to bake was plain butter cake..and the 1st cheesecake was this cheddar cheesecake which is a very popular recipe from 星厨房. And i just realized that i have never recorded this recipe in my blog before..So this time, i bake again and have it record in my blog. This is a very good cheesecake recipe, with few common ingredients, you can get a light, cottony, spongy and delish cheesecake..Thanks to Hsling for sharing such a great recipe.

Japanese egg salad sandwich鸡蛋三明治 (Tamago-Sando) ~深夜食堂

Yesterday my son Desmond was requested egg sandwich in the late evening, i rejected his request because dinner was ready and i was rushing to attend a gang dinner (my girl friends gave me thumbs up for the raspberry cheesecake ^_^). When i tried to wake him up this morning, he showed me his sour face. I asked him why you angry at me, he said because i did not make him egg sandwich yesterday, LOL.
So i quickly make this egg sandwich before he came back from school today..and this egg sandwich also one of the food that shared in the "Midnight canteen" drama 深夜食堂.

Tiramisu Cake

Yesterday i went to do my regular PS check, the lady doctor told me baking is a bad hobby (because my blood pressure was slightly high and my weight never gone down ^_^), i was quite upset and no mood to update any post yesterday. Anyway, i am ok today, because i still continue to bake bread now. My life will not have fun if i am not doing any baking, hehehe..
Last week i made another two Birthday cakes for my niece and nephew. One of them is Tiramisu Cake which i was inspired by Phong Hong Bakes and the recipe in a magazine that i have bookmarked for a longer time.
