Floibanen Funicular - Bergen (Norway)


On our second last day in Bergen, we visited the Bergen Aquarium, had lunch in Anne & JC Cafe and spend our afternoon in Bergen City Museum. On the last day, we stopped by at Bryggen Water Front, admired the view of whatever we could see and took a couple of pictures for remembrance.

Dongzhi Tangyuan (Glutinous Rice Sweet Dumplings)


Hello everyone,

I am still away but I know that I can't remain where I am forever. Whether I like it or not, I have to come back home and start earning money again. Otherwise there will be no more Cinderella time and travelling. Anyway lets just forget about the power of money for the time being and talk about other things more pleasurable in life like welcoming Dongzhi, Winter Solstice Festival with a bowl of tangyuan dumpling in syrup.

Spaghetti Tom Yam Soup


Hi hi!!!

I am currently enjoying every moment of my winter holiday. The weather over here is freezing cold but I am coping well and its a great feeling that I don't have to cook, clean and do any housework. I still have a couple of days to enjoy my Cinderella time before I get back home. So far, the food is not too bad especially the varieties of soups to keep me warm and cuddly. However nothing like a bowl of home made piping-hot and spicy tom yam soup with noodles.

Fried Pompret (Bawal) With Ginger And Soy Sauce


I actually make plans for more travelling this year. But nothing really took off because my friends who wanted to travel with me kept changing their plans every now and then. Of course some of them had genuine issues cropped up whereas the rest are people who can't decide what they want out of life.

Bergen City Museum (Bergen, Norway)


Right after Bergen Aquarium and lunch at Anne & JC Cafe, we came over to this museum which by right should have been the starting point of our tour to understand Bryggens and Bergen history. But since we started at Denmark  and arrived in Bergen via The Flam Railway, perhaps it wasn't possible. Anyway, I felt that it didn't really matter because some of my tour buddies weren't interested in seeing anything and they conveniently parked themselves at the cafe in the museum.

Pamukkale Thermal Pools - Turkey


Our sightseeing to Temple of Hadrian didn't take too long and because of that, we arrived way earlier for our lunch at a nearby restaurant.  It was another buffet style catering for tourists from all walks of life, similar to the lunch we had after visiting "Acropolis of Pergamon". The scene was also the same and a plus point because the massive crowd has not arrived yet. I definitely felt comfortable as there wasn't any pushing or rushing which is a common thing at such buffets when you among people who behave as though they haven't eaten for days.

Anne & JC Cafe & Conditori (Torgallmenningen Square, Bergen) Norway


From Bergen Aquarium, we arrived at the big shopping mall and walked up to the CafĂ© situated on the second floor; packed with plenty of customers who were simultaneously chatting and enjoying their meals during this lunch time. Despite that, we were cool. We knew that prior arrangement has been made on our seating area and our menu; one of nice things about travelling in a professional arranged tour.

Himalaya Nourishing Cream & Honey Body Wash


Of course the whole world is aware that home made body washes are way better compared to commercial body products. They are not only cheaper but also free from harmful radicals. Perhaps you already have the ingredients at home to make your own your concoctions. A good start will be the "about to rot" fruits. Honey and milk are another two favourite which can be mixed with lemon juice and/or oats to produce a body wash-scrub.

Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting UV Cream Moisturiser SPF 30


Ageing is something you and I can't stop. The best of course is to embrace it with open arms because its a fact that we can't go back to the years when we wore mini skirts and plunging neckline tops or whichever we were plunging. Though some women still think they are sweet sixteen, they failed to understand that without caring for their skin, there's nothing much to flaunt.

Temple Of Artemis &Temple of Hadrian - (Ephesus/Selcuk, Turkey)


On the morning of our 4th day tour in Turkey, we were in  House of Virgin Mary. From there we went over to Temple Of Artemis - one of the seven wonders of ancient world and built on a flat area in Ephesus which have over the centuries turned into a swamp. The temple is also known as the "Temple of Diana", was a Greek temple dedicated to the goddess Artemis and has been destroyed at least 7 times and rebuilt just as many times.

MAC Studio Perfect Compact Foundation SPF 15


I have the habit of buying products from same brand especially when those I have tried suits my skin. The other valid reason for buying this compact foundation is because I'm pleased with the MAC Lightful Marine-Bright Formula CleanserMAC Lightful Marine-Bright Formula SPF30PA++ Moisturizer Hydratant and MAC Mineral Charged Water Moisture Eye Cream

Japanese Egg Tofu With Soy Sauce


Since I am going to take a break from the virtual world of blogging tomorrow, I shall post a recipe as a nice closing for the weekend because I know for a fact that food makes everyone happy. I shall also refrain from writing a confusing intro by keeping it simple. However if you still prefer a long winded story, please read at "Crispy Fried Tofu With Soy Sauce". When I posted that recipe, many queried about what is Japanese tofu and whether they can use other types of tofu. Thus, I have attached the picture of the said and if you can find another variety close to Japanese tofu, go ahead.

Bergen Aquarium (Bergen, Norway)


Our trip to Flam from Oppheim Hotel via Fjord Cruise and Flam Railway was all about admiring and appreciating nature. The cruise journey was nice but a little dreagy because I felt restless just sitting on the ship for that long. On the other hand, the train ride was marvellous and I will surely treasure it for the rest of my life. Towards the end of the ride, I felt sentimental leaving behind the good memories. But as always said, every good thing must come to an end and I certainly accepted that we can't remain in Flam because there's more to see in Bergen.

House Of Virgin Mary - Kusadasi (Turkey)


It was pass 9pm when we arrived at the hotel in Kusadasi. There was nothing much to do except and unless we wanted to walk around the dark compound which appeared eerie at that time, surrounded with huge trees and plants. We waited at the reception area looking like zombies because we were feeling run down and tired after walking non-stop in Trojan Horse of Troy and Acropolis of Pergamon

Siam Boat Noodle - Taman Bayu Tinggi (Klang)


Suffice to say, life is challenging and with it comes plenty of challenges which we have to face whether we like it or not. I had enough of challenges in my life, some very massive ones but here I am still in one piece. Regardless of that, I knew I will love the challenge by Siam Boat Noodle because when it’s about food and eating, obviously none of us can say no.  I accepted the invitation with open arms because I love noodles and I love Thai flavours to the maximum.

Fried Prawn Wanton


One of the most difficult thing about writing an intro is trying to figure out the first line or the first few words. But then again, anything we do for the first time is like walking through the dark tunnel with the hope we will see the light at the end of it. I am still trying and I can't see the light right now. However I can clearly see my previous recipes of Chicken Wanton Soup and Prawn Wanton Soup and those two are good enough as the sunshine for these crispy fried wanton with prawn-y tenderness.

Dorsett Grand Subang - Seafood Promotion: Neptune's Kingdom @ Terraza Brasserie


Compared to my early arrival for the "Warna-Warni Buffet", I was a little off track with punctuality for this seafood promotion. What else can be a valid reason except to blame it on the rain and the traffic jam that came with it.

Nescafe Chocolate Cake (Eggless)


Ahhhh!!! What a tiring day it has been. I just got back home with my legs and hands almost falling apart after walking for hours in the shopping mall. While I like to think that I am still sweet sixteen, trust me when I say that once age catches up, no matter how active and healthy you are, tiredness will follow you like your own shadow. Right now I feel as though I have been hit by a bullet train. And I am just staring at my laptop wondering what should be the story for this moist and nice to look at dark brown hue cake.

Bone & Pot - USJ, Taipan (Subang Jaya)


There are always reasons for me to be in Taipan. And that is the rationale why I have ventured to quite a number of eateries in this area (Devil's Crab, Victoria Station, Makbul Nasi Kandar, Murni, Lorong Seratus Tahun, Kayu Nasi KandarStation One, Daorae Korean), randomly selected, either accompanied with friends, my other half and I am also comfortable eating out on my own. I was back again to the same area to meet a friend in her office. Dinner was not on our agenda but since our discussion prolonged until almost 8.30pm,  I had no choice but to interrupt her long winded jabbering to let her know that I am going to roll on the floor if I don't eat soon. I was hoping that she will let me go but she insisted on following because she was hungry too.

Premiere Hotel Klang - Tudor Style Christmas


Christmas arrived early for me. I won't deny that I felt elated over the invitation from Premiere Hotel for the Tudor Style Christmas. After all, similar to other festivals, its a fact that we look forward to good food and great company during Christmas. I definitely was looking forward to at least two good things - a reason to see the first Four-star business class hotel in Klang, known for its contemporary design and professional ambiance, offering both comfort and efficiency and of course, the excellent buffet spread.
