香港,澳门,珠海,广州,深圳 六天五夜 行 (第四章)

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。  

 

Dinner at いろはかるた Izakaya 居酒屋| Kyoto Japan

Izakaya居酒屋is a place where Japanese gather together for eating, drinking, smoking and talking. To be more precise, it is a place for them to drink, drink, drink and drink non-stop. Since it is a place for drinking, many Izakaya provide drinking buffer (飲み放題 "nomihoudai") package. If you are to order a set package, many of them come with appetizer, main dishes, salad, dessert and some side dishes. The drinks are buffet type and you can choose from soft drink, wine, cocktail, sake and others. Most of them are alcohol. I have visited to many of the Izakaya during the stay in Japan. Most of the times were attended farewell or welcoming party with Japanese colleague. I have no chance to take good photo during dining with them.

 

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. Recipe here: (more picture can refer here) Ingredients: 340g tinned butter180g icing sugar (sifted)1tbsp sweet condensed milk 12 egg yolk1/2tsp vanilla essense1tbsp brandy (optional) 100g plain flour (sifted together with mixed spice)1.5tsp mixed spice 4 egg white Some cranberry and red colouring Method: 1.

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".
