Home Dine Out Hong Kong & China

 

6 Days 5 Nights Relax at Chiang Mai (Day 3) | 废人废生活的清迈6天5夜行 (第三天)

Day3 It was another beautiful day which no one, no alarm, no phone call woke you up from your sweet dream. We had our breakfast in hotel and continue rent hotel’s bike to Chiang Mai city. Our first stop was Doi Suthep.   第三天 今天也是睡到自然醒,然后慢慢享用早餐,再慢慢的出发到另一个地方去。今天的行程也是临时计划,由于是星期六,我们计划到周六市场,就和酒店租借多一天的电单车,问问他们的意见后,决定先到Doi Suthep Temple去。 Doi Suthep, Chiang Mai University and Saturday market location map On the way to Doi Suthep Temple, we passed by Chiang Mai university. We turned in their Uni and look for their canteen. Many stalls were not open due to Saturday. Again, we used hand language to order our meal, then bought a cup of coconut drink. The foods at here also very cheap, 20 Baht for a bowl of noodle, 6 Baht for coconut drink. 去Doi Suthep Temple时,途径清迈大学,我们便往里边兜兜。兜了一会儿,终于到达他们的食堂。也许是周六,食堂显得冷冷清清的,就几摊小贩在做生意而已。我们再次比手画脚的告诉面摊阿姨我们想要的面后,再买杯椰水,开始了我们的午餐。这儿的消费也超便宜,一碗面才20Baht,一杯椰水也只是6Baht。 Local noodle Drinks stall Coconut drink We continue our journey to Doi Suthep Temple. The way to the temple was terrible if you go with bike. We regretted not going with Song Thaew. The temple was very beautiful and worth visiting. 吃饱后,继续我们的路程。去Doi Suthep Temple是崎岖的山路,车开了好久,不知转了几百个弯,都很难到达目的地,真的坐到我们腰酸屁股痛。看见身边一辆接一辆的双条割过我们,有点后悔为什么自己要骑电单车去呢?为何呢?就因为酒店人员告诉我们很近啦,只要到市区,没多远就能到达Doi Suthep Temple了。就这样,上当了。但也还好,途中有休息庭,让我们停下来扭一扭身体,吃一吃水果。 City view on the way to Doi Suthep 虽然辛苦,但这寺庙还真的很壮观,我们乐捐后拿了两朵花和蜡烛,拜拜拍拍照,吃吃雪糕,就三点半了。原本还想继续上苗族村,但担心去到已太迟,所以决定下山了。   Doi Suthep Temple was built on mountain, entrance fee is 30Baht per person. Elevator is 20Baht per person. If you can walk, you no need to pay for 20Baht and can just walk up to the temple top through the stair case which consist more than 300 steps. Doi Suthep Temple是建立在高山上的,入门票是30Baht一个人,程搭电梯到寺庙是一个人20Baht。要是嫌贵或体力好的话,你可以选择走三百多个阶梯的路上去,这可以省去20Baht。 Doi Suthep temple Doi Suthep temple Doi Suthep temple We proceed to Saturday market at Wua Lai Road after Doi Suthep. Forgot to mention, along our journey, we do not hire tour guide nor driver. What guided us was GPS. While Camus riding on bike, I hold my phone on hand and read the direction from GPS. We were not worry about thief will snatch away our phone as we feel very safe in Chiang Mai. 下山后,我们直接去周六市场,由于对当地的路一点都不熟悉,我们是靠GPS带领,走完清迈不少路。是的,GPS,人家乘车用GPS,我们骑电单车也用GPS,Camus负责骑电单车,我就坐在后面看GPS领路。在清迈,我们不怕手里握着手提电话而被抢劫,因为他们的治安令我们很放心。   Although GPS is powerful, but we were not able to reach every location with it's help. We lost our way to Saturday market, we stopped by at road side to study the map. Suddenly there was a voice shouting towards us, "hello...hello...". I was shocked and thought we blocked someone way. When we turned our head, we saw a man with his wife asked us "Any help?". Yes, in the end we got our way to Saturday with their help. We appreciate and sincerely thank their kind help. 虽说有GPS带领,但还是有不明确的时候。我们抵达周六市场的附近,停下电单车看看地图已确定方向,突然听见"哈罗,哈罗。。",当时还以为挡了谁谁的路,原来有个男士把他的老婆叫出来,问我们,"Any help?"。此时此刻,觉得人间有情啊,在我们迷路时,竟然有人自动伸出援手,你说,能不感动吗?我们问了方向后,对方以简单的英语来回应我们,最后总算也找到周六市场了。   There were various kind of foods sold in Saturday market, much more compare to night market near our hotel. We bought some foods to eat while shopping, suddenly all people stopped down, and those who seated stood up. I was surprise and shock as wonder what was happened. After few second, we heard their national song. It was 6pm at that time, everyday they will play national song and people will stand as a respect to their country. This scene did not appear to me for years in our country, what happened to our country Malaysia? 吃了两天酒店附近的当地食物,看见周六市场的东西还是令人兴奋的。这里有更多的当地食物,我们边走边吃边看,真的吃得有够爽,但卖的东西由于不太合适,所以也没买得太多。走着走着,路人突然停顿了下来,就连坐着的小贩也站了起来,此时,真的吓了我一大跳,以为发生了什么事。原来是六点钟播放国歌的时间,他们的爱国精神也太强了吧?这种事情是在我小学或中学时期曾经发生的。但现在在我国,这种事情已经很少见了,是我国人民已不爱国了,还是。。。? Saturday market Saturday market Chiang Mai is a very clean and beautiful place. You can hardly see rubbish on floor. I remembered when I was in front of one of the stall which selling fried pork skin, the stall owner keep pointing on empty plastic bag hold in my hand, she wanted to throw it for me. From there I understand why there is no rubbish in their night market. Not only this stall, some of the stalls owner will point you the dustbin when they see you holding any rubbish on hand. 除了爱国精神,清迈也是非常干净的地方,夜市及路上也保持得很清洁。还记得当时我手上拿着刚吃完食物的包装袋,然后正选购炸猪皮,那小贩指着我手中的垃圾,想要帮我扔,当时的我还真的不好意思,但她还是一直指着那垃圾,所以我就将垃圾给了小贩,再购买炸猪皮。路上也可见不少垃圾桶,人们也不会将垃圾随意扔,还有几次是当小贩看见手上拿着垃圾,就指向垃圾桶,告诉我们可把垃圾扔那。难怪清迈能那么清洁,我相信这也是人民合作精神所造就出来的。 Delicious thai food Cuttle fish Cuttle fish Various kind of pure fruit juice (10~30baht per bottle) Temple near to Saturday market Temple near to Saturday market We returned to hotel after get enough of foods. These conclude our third day in Chiang Mai. 没多久,天也开始黑了。由于当时Camus的脚肿,走起路来也觉得痛,所以,我们逛逛一会儿,再打包些食物就回酒店去了。

Kobe Beef and Kobe One Day Trip

After Kobe trip with wonderful kobe beef dinner on 3 years back, I have another chance to visit Kobe again to enjoy world's famous beef steak. From forum and internet, travellers' feedback on kobe beef lunch cannot beat dinner set. With previous experience which Camus and myself will never forget in our life, I decided to give lunch a try and then make a comparison between set lunch and set dinner. I did some survey before go for kobe beef lunch, Wakkoqu restaurant has many good review. So my plan is to visit this restaurant. We arrived at Sannomiya station on that day before 12pm and would like to have short walk around that area before go for lunch. When we just arrived at Sannomiya Hankyu Station, we saw a long queue outside another kobe beef restaurant. We walked closer to look at the menu, the price is more cheaper compare with Wakkoqu. I believed it has some good reasons why people queue for the meal. We followed the queue and had our kobe beef steak lunch. The restaurant I mentioned here is Steak Land. We were arranged to dine at second floor, they served in tepanyaki style and guests were sitted around the table while the chef will cook and serve at center area. After put order, they served us salad, miso soup, steak sauce and plain water. When they brought two big pieces of beef (for 4 serving) to the table, I was regretted with my decision made. By looking at the kobe beef, it looks not fresh with brown in colour. Oh no, my main target for this trip gone. I had to stop blaming myself at that moment and pray hard that the beef will turn out good in taste. Compare with previous kobe beef dinner, I had to agreed that lunch is really not as good as dinner. After looking at how the chef cook the steak (obviously not as "proffesional" as our kobe beef dinner's chef), I started to enjoy my meal. I changed my mind after my first bite on the medium cook kobe beef, it was still soooooo soft and melt in mouth. With 2980yen for this set lunch, I can say I was satisfied with it at this price. Of course, if you aim for better quality and environment, I would recommend Mouriya Restaurant which we went for dinner. After the lunch, we proceeded with our trip at Kobe area. We walked from Sannomiya to China Town, then to Harbourland. Then end our one day trip at Kobe. I wish to return again for next Kobe beef romantic dinner with my dear Camus.

 

Indonesia Layer Cake with Cranberries Recipe

When I looked back my post on Hawflakes Layer Cake, I just realised that it has been more than one year since I last baked my Indonesia layer cake. I bought a can of butter for baking layer cake and kept until it was expired. I quickly grab it to bake for my next Indonesia Layer Cake with Cranberry. This time, I follow exactly the recipe in my blog too, with slight modification, I change the filling to cranberries. For my hawflakes and prune layer cake, I managed to bake a total of 8 layers cake but for this one, I get only 7 layers. It was still very delicious and as good as last two cakes! I spent less than 3 hours for this cake. You can substitude cranberries with raisins too if you like as the taste of cranberries in this cake taste very similar to raisins.

今天是行程的最后一天了,不舍的心情涌了出来。没关系,好好享受这一天吧!

26/10/2012 8:30

感谢导游把我们带到一家卖玉的店,让我们有机会遇见全香港最有孝心的儿子。由于这位儿子妈妈的脚不方便行动,所以这位身为儿子的,代替母亲从香港赶来广州拜佛。好虔诚,好孝顺啊!

母亲就是这玉店的老板,所以这个做儿子的就是代妈妈拜了神后,再来这店面做生意,就这样巧合下,才有机会迎接我们这一团。这儿子还说,他的妈妈是在大马嫁过去香港的,所以和我们这班马来西亚的团友就算是瞒亲的啦。儿子的这一番话是在是感动呐。。。但,我信你才怪!听到这个"儿子"的废话,什么肮脏话都想骂出来,不骂实在对不起自己的心脏,让自己压着气,心脏却气得跳到乱七八糟实在不好!

这"儿子"还说今天是不做生意的,看看就好,叫我们不要买。每个玉的价钱是上百上千元的,但因为我们是"亲人",原本上百的玉只卖人民币50,你信吗?信你才怪!实在看不过这种耍生意的手法,一来浪费时间说废话,二来看到这种虚伪的做法,实在看不下去。

还好,最庆幸的是,本团是没有任何人购买任何东西的。谢谢大家合作!要是这样也有人购买,实在是。。。无话可说啊!我说嘛,做生意,老老实实好的,别转弯抹角,虚虚伪伪,这招不流行了啦!

 

26/10/2012 10:30

发泄完毕,到了吃午餐时间,没错,听废话听了一个早上。接下来,吃深圳金钱豹自助餐时间到啦!这里有上百种的食物,有中餐,日本餐,西餐,意大利餐,海鲜类的,烧烤类的,果汁,蛋糕甜品,雪糕等等。。。任你吃。领队说,这一餐要RM100++的,还满贵的呢。

锵锵锵!第四天啦!来看看今天逛了那里吧...

25/10/2012 8:40

宝树堂店
一大早把我们带到宝树堂店,看看介绍员把自己的手烫在热烘烘的粗铁条后,马上涂上他们的宝树堂。这也不是我们第一次来到宝树堂店,它也是中国知名的药膏,适用在被烫伤的皮肤上,涂后有着冰凉的感觉,有着不错的疗效作用。由于家里还剩着,我们也没多买。这家的介绍员也没那么讨人厌,不买也没派"小鬼"来缠身。

等待其他团友的同时,我们买了龟苓膏糖。糖果口感QQ的,我们都喜欢。也在这里买了龟苓膏来吃,虽然没什么特别,一罐RMB10就当作是享受吧!

25/10/2012 9:55


丝绸厂
又是一间丝绸厂,我们几年前到中国苏州旅行时已去过了。这里可看到蚕宝宝出生直到长大的过程,再得知怎么把蚕吐出来,制造丝绸。看看过程是瞒不错的,但没心买的我们,就是觉得又在这里浪费时间了。等啊等啊,你不买,别人要买啊,就这样大半天完蛋了。

久违了,回来已经一个多星期了,才来得及写第三天的行程.一回来没心之余,工作又开始忙,写行程的速度必然慢了.废话不多说,进入话题吧!

24/10/2012 7:17
今天是第三天了,出门旅游时间总是过得特别快。今天的早餐也是香港点心,希望可以来得丰富一些。比起昨天,今天的比较不错,但小点心种类不多。看看照片就可以数出有多少种了。要是把粥和面条换去点心,那有多好呢?

看完了"香港,澳门,珠海,广州,深圳 六天五夜 行 (第一章)"之后,让我们继续第二天的行程吧!

23/10/2012 7:50
今天一大早就被叫醒,这也是我不喜欢跟旅行团的另一个原因。为了赶上每个行程,每天七早八早就要被吵醒。自由行就不同,你可以自己安排自己的行程,爱几点醒就几点醒哈!但跟随旅行团可免掉自己安排行程的麻烦,酒店也不必自己操心,有好有坏啦。

今天的开始是从香港点心开始。来到香港,点心是我们的另一个期待。由于酒店没包早餐,司机带我们到外享用早餐。我们抵达一间餐厅,那里的装饰不算豪华,就是有种老土的感觉,餐厅装潢好像七十年代的。

刚从香港回来, 由于是和父母去的,所以我们选择了跟随旅行团去游玩.再加上香港的旅店实在是不便宜,算来算去还是跟随旅行团较为划算.

我们是在今年的旅游展期间报名的.一个人的旅费是RM2488.除了两餐不包,其余的都包在旅费了.酒店也包在旅费里面.

为了加快的把行程记录下来,这次选择了用华文来写,要不然把时间花在翻译上,恐怕我有限的记忆将会很快消失了.

来吧,开始行程吧.

22/10/2012 7:10


我们乘搭马行从槟城到吉隆坡国际机场.到达时间为8.10.

 

 

22/10/2012 9:15
之后从吉隆坡搭飞机直达香港.路程用了差不多4个小时.飞机餐是提供Nasi Lemak 及Omelette让你选.味道差不多而已.
