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.

  6. Ya, my friend also told me that they were not allowed to take pictures because the flash light may scared the penguins away. :o) But great to enjoy the great view peacefully. Have fun!

    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.

Yoghurt Fruitcake

T is the festive season again and the all-time favourite for X'mas is undoubtedly the ubiquitous fruit cake.  This Yoghurt Fruitcake caught my eye when I was browsing through a Food and Travel magazine.  As I've never baked a fruit cake with yoghurt before, I was very eager to try. 

Wife Biscuit (Lo Por Paeng) 老婆餅

Happy New Year, everyone!   My first post for 2015 is 'Wife Biscuit' aka 'Lo Por Paeng', a soft and flaky pastry with winter melon filling which is a very popular delicacy in Hong Kong.  The ones that I find here are not the same as their  flaky counterparts, instead they are crispy and thin.   I've been surfing the internet for a recipe and I was very happy when I stumbled upon a Youtube video from SiuKitchen .   The video is in Cantonese and she gives very detailed steps on how to make these flaky pastries.   The pastries were good and stayed flaky and soft for three days in an airtight container.  I needn't have to reheat them in the oven toaster. Recipe for Wife Biscuit (Lo Por Paeng)   老婆餅  Ingredients Filling 120 gm candied winter melon, finely chopped 5 ml oil 15 gm caster sugar 40 gm koh fun 50 ml water Method Add sugar to the chopped winter melon, mix in the oil, water and mix lightly together.

Steamed egg with minced pork ~ 猪肉蒸水蛋

This is a super comforting home-cooked dish which requires only a few ingredients.   An easy to go recipe, I added minced pork to give the dish more volume.   Kids as well as adults will love the silken smooth egg interspersed with bits of juicy meat.   Great to serve over hot rice! Steamed egg with minced pork  ~   猪肉蒸水蛋 Ingredients 150 gm minced pork 2 chicken eggs -  100 ml without shell 150 ml boiled, cooled water  (Ratio is 1:1.5) 1/4 tsp salt sesame oil, pepper light soya sauce to taste Method Season the minced pork with some salt. Whisk the eggs with water, strain it onto a plate. Mix in the seasoned minced pork.  Remove any air bubbles. When the water in the steamer is boiling, place the plate of eggs onto the steamer plate, close lid and turn the heat to the lowest. Steam for about 14 to 15 mins., check after 5 mins.  Jiggle the plate, if centre is wobbly, it's done. Remove from steamer, garnish with some spring onions, light soya sauce,
