五月五黑糖番薯包食谱 (Black Sugar Sweet Potato Pao Recipe)

五月五事故。。。 五月五,换政府,五月六,新政府!Ini kalilah Ubah! 这一届大选实在是轰动全国,甚至轰动至国外。经过半世纪多原任政府的统治下,许多人民已意识到有必要改朝换代,告别腐败,让新政府统治国家。这也意味着新希望,希望改变原有的不公平对待,告别贪污的时代。 五月五,我也一样,一早醒来,期待着去投票。由于投票站就在对面,遥望过去,人潮汹涌。赶紧梳洗后,冲着去排队。第一次投票的我,真的有点紧张,排啊排啊,终于轮到我了,投下神圣的两票后,乖乖的离开投票中心。离开前,观察四周,没有外劳,没有暴乱,安心啦。。。

Butter Cake Recipe (Egg Separation Method)

Butter cake is one of my family favourite cake, I used to bake it years ago with "Buttercup" or "Farmcow" butter. This few years, I found it hard to bake nice butter cake with this types of butter. I am not sure what's wrong with it, it was either my baking skill get worse? or the weather that makes the buttle melt easily? or the butter itself? I bought a 500g better quality butter to keep in fridge and plan to bake for butter cake. This time I get "SCS" butter. When I read through some bloggers' blog, I found one recipe that is famous among many bloggers, and this method using egg separation method. I decided to give it a try. With no regret, I am very happy with the result, I like this type of cake which gives a very fluffy texture and rich in buttery flavour. Thanks to wendyinkk for sharing Mrs NgSK's recipe. I really love it so much!!! Ingredients:230g salted butter, softened150g caster sugar4 egg yolks (grade B egg)200g self raising flour, sifted (I used 200g cake flour+3.5tsp baking powder)60ml fresh milk 4 egg whites (grade B egg)50g caster sugar Method:1. Preheat oven to 170°C. Line bottom and sides of 8 inch cake pan with parchment paper. 2. Cream butter and sugar till pale and fluffy, scrape side and bottom of mixing bowl as necessary. Add egg yolk 1 at a time. Beat well after each addition. 3. Put half the sifted flour and mix on low speed until combined. Add milk in two additions and mix until well combined. Add in balance of flour. 4. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk egg whites till soft peak. Gradually add in 50 g sugar, beat until egg whites form stiff peaks. 5. Put half the egg whites in butter mixture and mix on low speed, pour in balance of egg whites and fold with spatula. 6. Pour batter into baking pan and level.7. Bang baking pan on table top to remove big air bubbles.8. Bake at pre-heated oven for 45 minutes or until skewer inserted and come out clean. My cake has little crack on top when bake in oven for about 40 minutes, I don't really care about this as most importantly it was very delicious, look at the photo to see the cake's texture, lovely!

6 Days 5 Nights Relax at Chiang Mai (Day 6) | 废人废生活的清迈6天5夜行 (第六天)

Day6 Today is our last day in Chiang Mai, I hope it was our first day here. Our last destination was to Warorot Market. You can find all kind of stuff from this market, fresh flower, clothes, shoes, fabric, kitchen utensil, tower, food and many more. It is a local market where their local people will come here to buy their things. 第六天 今天是清迈的最后一天了,实在是不舍得回啊!但计划中要去的地方都去了,只剩下Warorot Market。从网上得知这里是本地人逛的市场,东西比较便宜又应有尽有。我们乘搭双条抵达该处,也是20Baht一个人。在这儿,从鲜花,衣服,鞋子,布,厨房用具,毛巾,吃的用的都有。 Warorot market location map Warorot market We had our last shopping here before return back to hotel for final packing. 我们在这里买了几匹布,衣服,皮带,草席帽,猪皮等,就完成了清迈的血拚。回到酒店收拾好行李后,到附近吃午餐。 We had the chance to taste their famous mango glutinous rice before we came back. It was really delicious. They also have durian glutinous rice which is very special and hard to get it from other place. 第一天来到这卖芒果糯米饭的摊口,看见他们已经收挡,还好最后一天还来得及吃上一碟芒果糯米饭及榴莲糯米饭,总算安心了。 Mango glutinous rice, beef noodle and coconut drink location map Mango glutinous rice Durian glutinous rice Mango glutinous rice in front of this hotel We went to get a cup of coconut drink just opposite mango glutinous rice stall. The coconut drink is only 10Baht per big cup, delicious. 吃后觉得还是不太饱,就走到对面卖水摊口,买了一杯椰水,这椰水啊,真的很香很甜,才10Baht一大杯。Camus喝的最开心。 Coconut drink Then we go to another shop sells beef noodle which located the same row as mango glutinous rice. 我们也去到芒果糯米饭同排的面店,也不知他们卖什么,随便叫了一碗米粉汤面,原来是牛腩米粉汤,真的非常好吃。 Beef noodle After meal, we took Song Theaw to airport at 50Baht per person and end our journey at Chiang Mai. 之后,我们乘搭双条(50Baht一个人)抵达清迈机场,乘搭飞机飞回我国。就这样,结束了我们的清迈之旅。   旅途感想: 这次的旅行,可是我们那么多次的旅途中,其中一次很令我们大开眼界,喜出望外,惊喜连连的旅途。很多事件实在是让我们刮目相看,所以给我们留下了很多难忘及美好的回忆。 虽然这次的旅程花费超出预计,但受益良多,实在是让我们增广见闻。我觉得嘛,人生就得享受,懂得赚的同时,必须懂得花,只要不过于奢侈就行嘛。当地的食物,风俗,人情,景点,都让我们难以忘怀,真的还想再去多几次。清迈,是我们非常推荐的一个旅游城市,您也不妨亲自到哪儿体会体会当地的人情世故吧!

It has been a while since our last update in MnYfoodtalk, it is mainly due to our webpage was corrupted recently (thanks to the previous lousy web hosting company). All the posts were gone and we had to re-build and re-publish all the posts as we do not have a backup for our posts. During the downtime of our webpage, the poor service from the previous web hosting company was really dissapointed us and make us mad. Hence we had decided to change to new hosting company as they provide a better service to us. The two hosting companies did make a big different in providing services to their customers. For instance, the way they reply our requests did make a big different, you can't imagine how a service company can reply an email to their customers in a rude way and blame that the fault is from customers themselves. In fact we knew that was the improper server configuration that brought us all the nightmare and here we have no intention to blame any party, but the rude and irresponsible way of servicing customer from the previous hosting company had changed our mind in continuing to host under their company. So far, we are pretty happy with current web hosting company. One lesson learnt here, BACKUP YOUR BLOG OFTENLY! Tongue out

Well, back to the square one, let's talk about FOOD! Today is Mooncake Festival, MnY would like to take this opportunity to wish all our blog's readers Happy Mooncake Festival.

Mooncake Festival is the festival where people celebrating the day while eating mooncake and playing lantern with family and friends. It is also known as Lantern Festival or Mid Autumn Festival. It falls on the 15th day of the eighth month in chinese calendar. The moon will be fully round on this night.

This year I am celebrating Mooncake Festival in Japan. Prior to Mooncake Festival, my company's cafeteria had a special set for lunch. Main course was burger set with fried rice, side dish was mashed potato mixed with mintaiko 明太子, and the muaji dessert with red bean and green tea flavours. The set costs 500yen.

The lunch set was just nice, the burger and fried rice taste normal, the mashed potato with mintaiko is quite special. The reason I choosen this set is due to the dessert, they look delicious, but I felt a little bit dissapointed as they don't really tasted as good as what I was expected, they are too sweet. Embarassed

Then how about the celebration in Penang? Hmm, I believed it will be the same as usual, nothing special, haha. But I wish to celebrate this special event in Penang with my lover. Hehehehe. Cool

Lastly, MnY wish all people around the world Happy Mooncake Festival and may all the dreams come true!
