A random Tuesday

1. We went to Cameron Highlands for a day trip during Labor Day, and it was really a bad choice :(

I kinda expected traffic jam at CH since it's a public holiday but I din't know about the road constructions there. So yea, we were stucked in a terrible jam for hours~
Nonetheless, I enjoyed that day trip very much, I think my son as well.

大家的劳动节过得怎样?
我们呢就上了一趟金马伦,虽然没过夜,有点赶。。不过大家都玩/买的开心~
因为是公共假期所以堵车是肯定的了。不过没想到那边的修路工程搞到大家足足塞了几个小时!!:(

It wasn't cooling at all at CH! 
金马伦都不再冷了,看我还能穿那么薄就知道了。。

Aden acting cute here~
小瓜在车上补眠了近两个小时所以到达目的地时精力充沛(其实他无时无刻都那么精力充沛 xD)很合作!

The main purpose is to buy their fresh vegetables and fruits, and we stopped by the Cameron Valley for a quick photo stop.

My 2 favorite boys who support Bersih! xD

CH is a place we very familiar about, and it is not far from Taiping, hence a day trip is usually more than enough. Yes it was tiring but if everyone enjoyed the trip, the tiredness is all worth it.
从太平到金马伦不远,而我们对金马伦也很熟悉所以每次都是day trip罢了,虽然day trip不过已经很足够。
是很累啦(亲子游永远都是累的。。)不过还是老土的那句,只要大家玩得开心enjoy,累算不了什么~


2. It has been weeks since my last baking in the kitchen (partly due to water rationing), glad that my baking mojo is still here to stay.
Tried the Pettina Sponge mix (huat kuih) as shared by Angeline and it was super duper easy!
距离上一次的烘焙已经是大概一个月前了。上星期试了博友分享的Pettina sponge mix,是简单到不行啊~

Got it from a local bakery shop, 500g of the mix and add in 300ml of water......
只要加入300ml的水在包装的面粉里就可以了。。

Keep on beating lightly til no lumps, then scoop into the cups.....
搅拌均匀后就可以放进muffin cup里~

Since I have leftover chocolate powder, I added in some chocolate mixture, of course this step is optional.
Steam the cake for about 12-15 minutes and viola..........
如果不想颜色那么单调,可以加点巧克力粉。。
蒸大概12到15分钟就可以了~

See how my huat kuih raised and cracked so nicely!! Simply yummy!!
Huat arrr! :p
我第一次做的发糕还不错吧!发的很美~呵呵~
真的是简单又好吃!


3. Tomorrow is another important date to remember, my naughty Aden turns TWO! Behold mummy, this is the true terrible two stage =_="
明天5月7日就是Aden正式踏入terrible two的阶段了!

Had an advance celebration for him yesterday since my brother is going back to Singapore..... 
Aden sure knows that's his birthday cake! ;)
No big celebration for him tomorrow, just a simple dinner with family! Can't wait to collect his car cake though!
今年不打算怎么大庆祝,只是跟家人出外吃一餐就够了。
至于切蛋糕吹蜡烛嘛,还是等回到家才搞吧~

  18. wah.. going to Cameron Highlands on a public holiday!! errr, the last time i went up was on the next day of New Year Day (which was also a holiday), though didn't suffer from the traffic congestion, but then the crowd up there was really overwhelming!! hmmm, i guess you were not lucky lah, haha, better stay at home on public holidays.. if want to go anywhere, better go there on a non-peak season, it's true and i always believe that.. that is why hor, holidays are just "normal days" to me because i don't really want to plan to do anything on those days leh..

    anyway, at least you found your way into the tea valley!! the last time we went hor, aiyoh, 兜 here 兜 there also 找沒有路 to go in leh.. the deeper we went in, the more suspicious we got (even though we followed the sign), so in the end we gave up and just go to the strawberry farms and have a view of the tea valley from the cafe by the main road enough lah..

    hmmm, the "boys" were so happy lah.. both wearing yellow but then why you didn't also wear yellow?? haiz, must also were yellow like that only won't find you odd mah, 親子裝 very cute and sweet one~~ :)

  19. oh, Pettina Sponge means 發糕 really?? haha.. because when i saw Angeline posted about this, really looks like 發糕 though she called it cupcakes if not mistaken.. errr, true also lah, cupcake surely nicer name than 發糕 lah, haha!!

    yalor, really easy to make hor.. just buy the ready mixed flour and what-nots from the bakery, add water and that's it!! hmmm, suddenly milk came into my mind, wouldn't mixing it with milk makes it more delicious?? anyway, maybe inside already got milk powder or similar things so just add water would do..

    haha, you also have chocolate!! like follow bulat bulat what Angeline did, and the photos taken also looks similar!! but then i believe you didn't just took her photo lah, sure you took your own photo and shared with us here one.. and actually they look GOOD leh.. why didn't you think of those as Aden's birthday cakes?? hahahaha~~

    ReplyDelete
  20. oh, it's Aden's 2nd birthday tomorrow ah!! hehehehehe, finally because have seen you kept mentioning about this mah.. this boy sure happy huh, knowing that piece of chocolate cake belongs to him.. one piece he already so excited, i cannot imagine how crazy he would be when he sees the car cake tomorrow??

    yalor, i think no need to have big celebration lah.. actually if the kid is too small not necessary lor, he may not know what's happening also.. it's more like the adults having a reason (or excuse) to have party and gather and makan only.. the kids?? errr, they want to play and makan cake only lah~~ :p
