MOONCAKES FEVER 2017

16/9/2017 & 17/9/2017
Saturday & Sunday

Yam Mooncake with fresh homemade yam paste. 
The Mooncake making fever is going on facebook, so many beautiful creations have sparked my interest again. So here I am trying and testing them. 

Bought these 2 moulds to try the gongzi mooncakes...

These are not made with left-overs dough.  I think traditional these are made with leftover dough after baking the traditional mooncakes.


After first round of baking 

egg wash applied after resting for 5 minutes and went for second round of baking 

the first batch unfortunately was hard even after the 3 days of resting.  Did another batch, different recipe and keeping my fingers crossed

SATURDAY/SUNDAY


Our programme for the retreat....

peeking out of the foliage ....

ready to check in...
We were not allowed to drive up and the hotel provide shuttle to and fro from the car-park which is good as there is less noise pollution and car traffic.

the vast dining hall downstairs. 

the poolside 


on a clear day, you can actually see Gentings across.. the view from the balcony of the dining hall..





the Bamboo chalets.... twin beds with ensuite toilet..


ready to yoga...

JOINING THE FUN....FIRST MRT RIDE

29/7/2017
SATURDAY

Joining the crowds for the MRT ride.
The nearest station for us is Suntex Station.. a mere 10 minutes away from our home. Though there is a shuttle bus around the Taman (so far I have yet to see it going around my house) we drove to park our car at the station.    Parking is not free here and it costs RM4.30 per day to park here but the station is huge.  

definite a clear blue sunny day for going out and inside the trains its cooling.  


 We stopped at Bukit Bintang station, again a huge station underground.  Did some shopping and decided to go to The Market @ Lot 10 for our lunch.  This time, we were lucky to get seats at the Sbaya Shige soba bar.

Beef soba set with 2 pieces of Inari sushi, tempura and wakame  

Duck soba set - plenty of duck slices and meatballs as well.

my cold soba set ...YUMMYLICIOUS   

very satisfied customers.
