Phillip Island ~ Cowes



We arrived at Phillip Island and checked into this Cliff Top hotel for a night's stay. 




Entrance to the hotel.


This was my room, clean, spick and span with wooden floor panelling...... lovely, isn't it?


I was amazed by the murals on the walls of the bathroom ...... very artistic.


This was the other  room.  My children were very pleased with their room and they were the first to start clicking.


Snapped this from the balcony of my room.


We headed off to Cowes, a small town near the hotel to have an early dinner. 
 Mixed seafood with chips.


Salt and pepper squid.



Good old-fashioned Fish and Chips.

After filling our tummies, we proceeded to the  Penguin Parade  to watch the little penguins return to their sand dune burrows....... unfortunately we were not allowed to take any pictures or videos.

    The rooms were lovely but alas the time we spent there were not long enough. Check in was around 2pm and check out by 10 am the next day.

  9. That was a great view from your hotel room. I've been to watch the Penguin Parade and really enjoyed it but that was so many years ago. Now living here it is so difficult to go anywhere especially our neibouring countries.

Biscoff Butter Cake ~ 牛油蛋糕

The recipe for this Biscoff Butter Cake is similar to my earlier post of Marble Butter Cake, just that I added an extra ingredient which is, crushed Biscoff cookies.    Instead of mixing the crushed cookies into the batter, I just sprinkled them on top of the first layer of batter and then cover with the remaining batter.   This cake is soft and moist with good texture ..... definitely a recipe for keeps!

Salted egg yolk cookies ~ 咸蛋黄酥饼 ~ CNY 2016

Salted egg yolk recipes are getting very popular these days.  There are salted egg yolk with crabs, salted egg yolk with chicken, salted egg yolk with bittergourd and salted egg yolk bun, just to name a few.  Being the inquisitive me, I tried baking the salted egg yolk cookies just to taste what's it like.   It's quite difficult to describe the taste, it's neither totally sweet nor totally savoury, it's a blend of both which makes it unique, yet delicious.


I like the small bits of salted egg yolk in the dough.  I let the dough rest in the refrigerator for more than 2 hours and it was more pliable to handle.
