Caldermeade Farm, South Gippsland Highway


On our way to Phillip Island to see the penguin parade, we stopped by this Caldermeade farm on the South Gippsland highway to take a break and to explore and see what's in store for us. 





A wishing well next to the entrance of the farm and cafe and the weather was cold on that day, strong wintry winds.




From this barn, we can watch how the cows are being milked but being year end,  the place is closed for the festive season.


This is the machine that is being used to milk the cows.




This is some interesting information regarding the farm cow's circle of life. 




We enjoyed the cool fresh clean air, had some freshly made scones served with home made jam, cream,  hot coffee and tea before proceeding on with our journey.

  3. Phillip Island, how I miss the penguins. Went there last June, the little birds looked simply adorable... :) I am impressed with how they waited for their comrades to come onshore before heading home!! :) Hehe...

    Oh yes, they were so cute, but as it was dark it was quite difficult to spot them at the beginning.

Chicken Floss Cake ~ 鸡肉松蛋糕

It's normal to find buns coated with meat floss in any bakery, but yet to find a meat floss coated piece of cake.  I saw this Chicken Floss Cake on youtube and was eager to give this a shot.  The recipe is quite similar to a chiffon cake and I was curious to find out the taste which should be slightly sweetish and saltish.  Wouldn't it be weird, I wonder.  But it turned out that the taste is rather unique with a light and soft texture and my family members gave me a thumbs up and asked for more!

Lavender lemon cookies ~ 薰衣草柠檬曲奇

These dainty looking Lavender lemon cookies have a subtle taste of lavender, not too much for I used  fresh leaves instead of dried flowers.  They are buttery, taste like shortbread with a light floral aroma.  They are simple, cute and sure to impress.  Try gifting them at a Christmas cookie swap or great to give as a gift during the coming festive season.
