Matcha (Green Tea) Chiffon Cake Recipe

If you have read our post on "How Chiffon Cake Works? The More You Want to Know About Chiffon Cake", I am sure you have very clear idea on this cake. How it works, what causing the cake rise, to what extend should your egg whites form, how to prepare the pan, oven setting so more. Among all my chiffon cakes (exclude those failed one), I would like to share on Matcha (green tea) chiffon cake recipe first. It was my first (so-called) successful chiffon cake after my hard pray to God. It was my big motivation after failure that caused big dissapoinment on last black sesame chiffon cake. It gave me courage to bake more chiffon cakes after "pass this difficult test".

 

Sukiyaki 鋤焼 | Dinner At Japanese Sensei House

When I was working in Japan, I attended Japanese class in order to improve my Japanese language. I have a Japanese teacher who taught me the Japanese language for about a year when I stayed there. Before the training end, I was invited to her house for dinner. I feel glad to have the opportunity to visit her house.

 

Green Island Western Food | Bayan Lepas, Penang

Not long ago, there is one newly open western food restaurant open at The One, Bayan Lepas. Feedback from friends that they serve reasonable price range western food, just like James Foo. Although I am Penangite, but experience to dine in James Foo is only once. But that one time experience gave us a good impression on the food and price range. Due to far distance from home, we seldom have chance to visit there often. Hence this newly open restaurant is a good place for us to visit as it is nearer to our company and house. Wifi is available in the restaurant.

 

Christmas Dinner Semi Buffet | The View Hotel Equatorial Penang

Merry Christmas 2015! We had four days holiday on this year Christmas, a super happy holiday mood to welcome this year Christmas. We celebrated our Christmas at The View Restaurant, with their semi-buffet menu that can opt for either Turkey or Lamb for the main course. We get one Lamb and the other was rib eye steak that not in the menu. Before the soup was served, we started with the buffet. Not much choices but some of them taste really good. They have salad, fingers food, fruits, and more. Desserts were one of my main focus, their tiramisu is one of the best that I had ever ate. Desserts and fruits: Parsnip cream soup The main course tasted delicious especially the lamb, very soft and juicy. Lamb Rib eye steak Menu The semi buffet was RM158 per person, parking fees of RM6 can be claimed back from the total bill. Remember to keep your parking receipt.   Location: Hotel Equatorial Penang, 1 Jalan Bukit Jambul, Bayan Lepas 11900 Penang, MalaysiaContact number: +60 4 632 7000Link: https://penang.equatorial.com/dining/the-view/Operation hours: Lunch 12pm~2.30pm, Dinner 6.30pm~10pm

Durian_7June of year 2011 is the best time to indulge durians, the King of Fruits. Compare to past few years, this year durian's harvest is better and hence the price is predicted to drop week after week. (Hope my prediction is correct!)

Last weekend we had an outing visiting durian farm at Genting, Balik Pulau, Penang. It is the farm of my dad's friend. On our way to the farm, I saw many stores selling durians at roadside. The durian's aromatic scent awakened my groggy head.

After half an hour journey, full with excitement, we had arrived at the farm. I grabbed the opportunity to take photos of variety fruits tree to show my "city niece". At the age of 8 years old, her life is more bussier than mine with tuition class, art class, piano lesson, swimming lesson, english course, math course...and she has never been to durian farm hence has no sense about what is "kampung life", the life of nature.

I will continue to hunt for durians until the end of durian season, despite the fact that I gained some weight already since last month. Before I end my writing, I want to say "Durian, I Love You!".

Hi Amanda, I am sorry to say that it is my dad's friend's farm. I don't think they open to public. I went there is because of their own invitation. Sorry for not able to provide you contact detail. :-x

Oh, it is a type of salt, I just google the image and it seems like is bigger size of salt. Thanks for the info. Learn new lesson today!

Please come to Penang on this month if you wish to eat durian. I can't stop myself to eat more...

Wow, that durian looks so good! I once went to a durian plantation in Penang too early ( may) and didn't get to see or eat a lot of durians. I probably should go back now!

By the way, Fleur de Sel is a gourmet salt- the crystals of which look like a flower. If you can't find this, just use normal salt.
