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.

Peach Resin Snow Fungus Dessert ~ 桃胶雪耳糖水

The scientific name for Peach resin is Prunus Persica which is resin secreted from the Peach tree and form like crystals which are stuck to the tree.  Originated from China, the composition of peach resin is collagen, amino acids.  The rich collagen helps to improve the complexion, nourishes and helps to prevent dryness of the skin.  It also helps to improve bowel movement.  In short, this is an inexpensive substitute to the highly expensive birds nest.

Kaya Slice ~ 咖椰片

I've tasted vanilla slice before but not Kaya Slice.  My first taste of Kaya Slice was at a fusion cafe in Perth and the combination was truly wonderful.  So when I returned from my vacation, I just had to give it a try with my homemade kaya and believe me, it's real yummy especially if you are a kaya fan.  Serve this as a dessert to jazz up your reunion dinner during this coming Chinese New Year!
