Went to the bakery shop nearby my house recently and found tarts on the display which looked yummy. It's the Walnut Tart and decided to buy one to give it test.
It tasted nice. The caramelized walnuts were crunchy and not too sweet which the sweetness was just nice to my liking. I just wonder what was the filling in the middle of the tart. I couldnt figure it out whether it was a cake (since the texture was a bit coarse) or something else.
Recently, my family and I went for a short trip to the north and the destination is Perlis. My father and I alternately took turn to drive the car. The weather was bright and hot. Before we reach our destination, we planned to go to Padang Besar and on our way there, we passed by the sugar cane estate in Chuping. Unfortunately, what I saw was this....
I was informed by a friend that it has been closed and some of the area had been used to plant rubber trees.
Landmarks that can be seen on your way to Padang Besar.
Behind the monument is Putra Palace Hotel which is near to our homestay.
This is where we stayed. Damai Homestay in Kampung Guru. By the way, it's very near to the town and the house is very convenient for families who are on vacation.
On the next day, we went to Taman Anggur Perlis. It was quite upsetting because there's no grapes on sale.
Pak Mat had previously bought this Black Opal grape and they tasted sweet and juicy. Too bad because there were no grapes for sale that day.
Later that night, we went dinner at the Embun Beringin BBQ Steamboat, in Behor Pulai. You should try them out. It's RM10 perhead for the steamboat & bbq, which is very CHEAP!!!!
On our way back, we stopped by here, in Kedah and no photos were taken after that since I was the one behind the wheels.
One afternoon, I saw this furry ball under a car, sleeping on a hot sunny day. On the next day, when I was about to head to school for my night class, I saw him sitting majestically, eyeing on me.
The round eyes it's hard to resist. I meowed him and immediately he followed my footsteps. I was in a hurry and told him to wait until I come back, so that he can eat something for the day.
As soon as I reached the parking again after I came back from the school, I called him out and out of nowhere he came running and mewing happily (I guess).
I named him Gebu.
Alhamdulillah... Thank you for giving me this opportunity to do a little good deed to other creatures. Hope to see Gebu again after this. And I do hope that other strays would enjoy this kind of treats too from my fellow neighbours and you too readers. ^_^
A teacher somewhere in your neighborhood tonight will be grading papers and preparing lessons to teach your children while you are watching television. In the minute it takes you to read this, teachers all over the world are using their "free time", and often investing their own money, for your child's literacy, prosperity, and future.
