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.

Wool Roll Bread ~ 毛线球面包

  Wool Roll Bread ... its popularity is booming and bursting the seams of Facebook and Instagram.  Every day you see new posts of it, with different ways of making it as well as an endless assortment of fillings to experiment with.  I too have been browsing the internet to research these various methods and their outcomes.  What is it that makes Wool Woll Bread so crazily popular?  To satisfy my curiosity, I tried my hand at making it and was very happy with the results.  I love seeing the bread strands when I pull apart the bread to reveal the meat floss filling and I enjoy how soft and chewy the bread is.  Jump on the bandwagon, folks, you won't regret it! Wool Roll Bread ~  毛线球面包 (adapted from 'here' with adjustments) Ingredients 300 gm high protein flour or bread flour 30 gm sugar 1 tsp seasalt 1 egg  (55 gm or 65 gm) 70 or 80 ml milk 25 gm melted butter Egg wash (1 whole egg + 1.1/2 tsp water to dilute) Meat floss or whatever you wish to use as filling 80 ml warm mil

Marble Butter Cake ~ 大理石牛油蛋糕

This is one of the most popular Butter Cake recipes among fellow bloggers and I've read many reviews about this cake.  Credit must be given to Mrs S K Ng for so generously sharing her recipe.   This cake is moist, fluffy, soft, not overly sweet and the texture is just right.  Must admit that this is the best butter cake that I've ever tasted.  I tweaked the recipe to make a Marble Butter Cake instead. So glad to see that there weren't any cracks on the surface although it rose slightly in the middle.

Coffee Walnut Butter Cake ~ 咖啡核桃牛油蛋糕

  This Coffee Walnut Butter cake recipe is adapted from my Marble Butter Cake which I posted some time back.  I tweaked it a bit to accommodate blended walnuts, added some coffee and Kahlua liqueur.  As always, Mrs. Ng's butter cake recipe never fails and this cake is soft and moist and indeed yummy.
