Orange and Passion fruit Gateau 香橙百香果蛋糕

I received few readers asking me whether they can use Golden sponge cake to decorate with whipping cream as they scare whether or this light sponge cake can accommodate the weight from the cream. To find out the answer, I decided to bake this cake again and decorate with orange and passion fruit curd which using leftover oranges that bought the other day ,and last minutes also decided to add in passion fruit which my sister sent over for me.

Pont de l'Archeveche "Lock of Love" bridge, Notre-Dame Cathedral, Paris 2014 巴黎自由行

I couldn't recall that I have seen this "Lock of Love" bridge when I visited Paris 8 years ago. After watched the Hong Kong drama, then only I knew this ordinary bridge over the River Seine that has attracted many couples writing love message on a padlock and locked it here, read more here. The other day, I read one article in newspaper saying that this bridge may collapsed one day as the weight of the locks is over burdening. So I better quickly visit this bridge ^_^

Kuih Bahulu / Ji Dan Gao 烘鸡蛋糕

Earlier I made the old-fashioned of kuih Bahulu ( egg sponge cake) by adding Soda drink method. This time I tried with difference method, adding some raising agent (use self-raising flour) and add more sugar. As I know more sugar resulted more crispy and hard crust of kuih bahulu. Even I have increased sugar, but the sweetness still acceptable, perfect to enjoy over a cup of black coffee.

Curry Puff (Karipap) 咖哩角

If compare to earlier spiral curry puff, this simple method of curry puff (it is a small pie consisting of specialised curry with chicken and potatoes in a deep-fried pastry shell) not tasted flaky but it still tasted slight crunchy after cool down. Anyway, this curry puff is much easy to make if compare to spiral type.

Recently I just upgraded the private TV channels (Astro) to include few new channels. And i found one interesting channel mainly use Hokkien dialect (HHD). I am not interest on those drama but I love to watch their food show that more sharing on Hokkien cuisines. I learnt this sweet and sour pork ribs from a show that shared by a owner of a restaurant mainly serve Foochow cuisines. I know how to cook sweet and sour pork, but this recipe I tried has very nice and crispy deep fried pork ribs. Even the dish has cooled down, the deep fried pork ribs still taste a bit crispy.
