Altered Art!

Did another 'altered art'.

This is a gift to my friend whose birthday is round the corner. It is filled with homemade Almond Crisps. I hope she likes it.

It just got better!!

Am in a very happy mood now.

I finally managed to get the quality that I want for the Almond Crisps that I had tried previously. Previous attempts was not consistent :(

However tonight, 3 batches and all were consistent. No burns at the sides and the best part was it is really thin!!

It just got better with time!! :D

Chicken Wings!!

In my excitement to post about the Chocolate Almond Biscotti, I almost forgot about my chicken wings!! Made it over the weekend and is my all time favourite snack!!

Tastes just like those at the 'tai pai tong' (hawker), better actually :p

Chocolate Almond Biscotti

I decided to try making Biscotti myself since it's selling outrageously high in the market.

simple ingredient consisting of plain flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, eggs, almonds and chocolate

the Biscotti loaf baking in the oven
yucky appearance and indeed it felt yucky as the whole dough is very very sticky!

my first batch of Biscotti
slightly burn, went wrong somewhere
suspect the culprit is the chocolate

not an alluring appearance but tastes great!

In the end, I find that my Biscotti is rather sweet even though the chocolate I used is suppose to be "bitter-sweet". Am sure it will blend well with a cuppa :)

Is it my taste is changing, as just recently a friend of mine commented that I seem to like my stuff "bland". Hhmm, maybe it's true that I don't like too sweet stuff!

AHOY Pangkor!!

This year my Company's Trip (Nov3rd-5th) is at Pulau Pangkor.

Personally, I've been there numerous times. So in terms of sight seeing, nothing new to me. However the place that we stayed at deserves a mention.

(t) fisherman's boat dock at the jetty
(b) catches from the deep blue sea made into tasty snacks

The resort that we choose is Pangkor Beach Resort (previously known as Pan Pacific). The resort and the view from our room is fantastic. Having it's own private beach definitely is an advantage.

(t & b) sunset sights
I'll definitely give this resort a thought if we are bringing Cavan for a beach holiday as the swimming pool in the resort is lovely. I'm sure he'll have a blast running after and digging for crabs!!

The photos displayed are captured by my colleagues namely William, Wei Seng and Woon. Excellent photography skills, won't you agree with me?
