Of mooncakes

Snowskin mooncake

(Yield about 9 pieces)
- 100g kaofen
- 30g shortening
- 80g icing sugar
- 150ml water
- few drops of vanilla extract
- foo coloring

 - 300g red bean/pandan paste (or other based on your preference)
(I used ready packed paste)

1. Sift kaofen and icing sugar together, then add in shortening.
2. Combine water, vanilla extract and coloring in another bowl and add into mixture 1.
3. Mix the dough then divide them to 25g ball, same goes to the filling. 
4. Flatten the dough with palm and wrap the filling inside.
5. Place the dough into the mould (I do not have mould so I just shape them with hands)
6. Place in air tight container and chill in fridge before serving.

The end products =)
This is the second batch actually, the first batch was not very successful.......

I put too much food coloring xD
I think nobody dares to eat also, LOL!

2 Sift in icing sugar.
3. Cut in unsalted butter and fold into soft dough.

2D1N Hatyai trip

I have been to Hatyai many times and I am not bored of it yet, haha!! xD
It's one of my favorite place to go, I mean considering the fact that I can't really travel oversea at the moment (no money and no time).
But traveling to Hatyai is still consider 'oversea' la right? 😆 It's just that we go there by car instead of plane.... Just 2 hours plus to reach kastam, almost like from Taiping to KL.

We had a short getaway to Hatyai last month, it was 2 days after the Songkran festival. We tagged Aden and Toby along so hubby suggested to avoid that festival.

Journey was smooth from Taiping all the way to the kastam, just the queue at the kastam was a bit tiring. We managed to check in early, lucky!

We stayed at Grand Pink hotel, I simply love this hotel because the room is big and clean! Staff service is nice too! Highly recommended, heard it's been refurnished lately. It's located next to Lee Garden Plaza so it's easy to find!
I also love the spacious bathro…
