Cream au Caramel

I finally baked my first desert using my oven. After trying out making grilled banana au caramel with dried raisins last Tuesday, I decided it is now the time to make something milk based. My mind unfolded to cream caramel memories, my mum bakes really good ones when I was small & she always said it's easy to make.

So I searched in the internet for the recipe & there is the result.

I dont know how it tastes yet, as it's still cooling off & I will put it in the fridge, before savouring it cold. So far, the smell is good & the look does not fail. Hmmm... I hope it's good enough to share with people in the office :)

last update as of 27 Sept: The cream tasted as much as I wanted it to be :) Yippee!

Dinner is served

Cooked myself snapper fillet a la bonne femme. Just took the recipe randomly from the internet and replaced the bay leave with italian herbs. The look was great but my fish was sort of tasteless. Shoulda have sprinkled lots more salt.

Dream come true

Gili Trawangan was beautiful.... I was in awe when for the first time I saw so many fish in front of my eyes dancing in the clear blue water. It was a real get-away island and I hope it remains a little hidden paradise for a little bit more time.

The value of things

Some things cannot be bought by money. And happiness is one of them.

Today was my mum's b-day & it's not the treats that made me happy for her, but it's the fact that we could just spent the one day together as a family. That is priceless :)

Trip to Ujung Genteng

Although this was dry season & that means waterfalls were dry in Ujung Genteng, we anyway took a 3 days trip to the cape. The travelling was marvellous, passing thru beautiful unheard plantations. The beach had strong waves & were rocky. The best thing we did was hunting for the 2 waterfalls, Cikaso & Cigangsa. Cigangsa setting is breathtaking and it was just located behind someone's yard. No roadsign on how to reach the place. we just had to ask around on how to find this hidden place, that deserves more recognition. Then again, slighter more buzz on it would probably cause too many litters/garbage around the beautiful area.
