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.

Puff Pastry Egg Tarts - 2 酥皮蛋撻

I took the opportunity to try my hands at making puff pastry from scratch when I was on vacation as the weather was quite cooling and I assumed that the dough wouldn't be sticky and messy to handle.
I could make both oil and water dough easily and there were no 'sweat and tears', LOL!  The pastries turned out nice and flaky and everybody gave their thumbs up for this dim sum, especially my dear grandnephew who asked for more!


Oil dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the cold, cubed butter, mash with a fork and slowly combine to form a soft dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the fridge for 30 mins.  (You can do this with a food processor if you wish),


Water dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the slightly  beaten egg yolks, mix well, add ice cold water gradually,( you may not require the whole amount of water as too much water can make the pastry tough), mix well and form into a dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the f…
