Victoria Park Hawker’s Market

Victoria Park Hawker’s Market on Friday night, now becoming one of our regular activities for the week. It’s really nice because we could find lots of food from around the world in one place, the other thing that make it perfect is because we can bring our lil puppy ‘Lola’ comes along together to join the crowd. It was a great venue to catch up with friends and family, the music is groovy too. You can bring picnic rug or chair because sometimes it’s hard to find empty table.

Another challenge from Indonesian blogger group, this time the theme is about cookies. If you would like to join us, find the link to submit your post here.

 

When it comes to the kitchen, sometimes i’m a bit selfish, i only cooked every food that i like…lol. Cookies are related to eid mubarak, because i only made cookies when it comes. When admin announce the challenge, yay…thank God, i still have some cookies left at home. Peanut butter cookies usually made from peanut, but recently there are some modification in ingredients to make it easier, some people using peanut butter to replace peanut. In my childhood, peanut cookies always made when lebaran or christmas. The texture so far a bit different between cookies that made from peanut and peanut butter. The one made from peanut had stronger texture which i love more.

Putu Ayu

NCC is stand for Natural Cooking Club. It is one of the biggest foodie community in Indonesia. They hold event called NCC Week. This time the theme is about Jajanan Pasar. Putu ayu is one of Indonesian traditional cake. In indonesia putu ayu is be included into jajanan pasar. I asked my mum to buy the molds for me when she came to visit us this month. I already browsing around to see the recipe for a long time but since i didn’t have the mold yet, I couldn’t try it.

Now it’s my first experience to make putu ayu. It looks simple but it’s not. To find the right recipe and the right texture that I love, I should try more than one time. This time, the taste was perfect but the texture it’s not that spongy like the one I had in my mind. I should try to improve the recipe next time I make it again.

But for now I’d like to share the recipe because sometimes some people love to have cake with this kind of texture. It’s a bit heavy for me though.

Ramadan Mubarak – The Month of Fasting Begin Today

It’s School Break – Part 1 (Margaret River – Augusta – Gracetown in Winter Time)

Yay, it’s school break already. Kiddos and mummy really wants to have a proper holiday 🙂 Alright dad?

Our friends asked to stay overnight at Margaret River, one of suburb in Western Australia. As we had passion in photography, Margaret River and around are beautiful places to go to. We could capture some beautiful nature from farm, forrest, country town and beaches. It’s gonna be a lovely adventure for all of us.

We start our journey at 7.30 am  from Perth to Margaret River. Arrived at Margaret River at about 10.30 am. Welcome to Margaret River 🙂

We went to information centre and looked around the city while waited for the Tavern Steak House opened. I recommended you to eat at that place if you go to margaret river. I loved the steak and lamb shank. So mouth watering.

After had lunch we went to our hotel to put some stuff and then headed to Augusta.

On the way to Augusta we saw farm with some farm animals.

And we went through beautiful forrest. You could did hiking there. What a beautiful nature!

And psttt…..don’t forget to take a snap in a forrest 🙂 Yes, that’s me and my lovely husband.

At Augusta we went to the beach near the lighthouse. This time we’re not going to the lighthouse. We’ve been there a couple time and thought that this time it’s not necessary. I tried to capture the beach with the ray of light. This picture was taken at around 4pm in the afternoon. A bit cloudy and rainy day. But it won’t stopped us to take a picture 🙂

On the next day we went to Gracetown beach. The waves in this beach a bit rough compare with the one in Augusta, but still it’s so beautiful.

“The earth has music for those who listen.”
? William Shakespeare

It’s music from the Beach they called it waves.

The journey still continued in my next post. Hope you enjoy the story and the photos as well.

Starting my Donna Hay Project

Borrowed Donna Hay book from library last week. Really love her style, and my husband said “why don’t you make your own Donna Hay project to challenge yourself?”. Why it’s challenging? Because even you see the photos but it’s not easy to make the same photos with the same quality. And after study about low key, i thought it’s time to learn another lesson. So this time, i choose Donna Hay style for my subject. And here I am with my project. Enjoy the photos!!!!

Why I started my Food Blogging?

I felt like it was ages ago since the first time i wrote for blog 🙂 And now start to write again for following Tika’s even. She’s celebrating her second year of her blog, she called it SECOND BLOG ANNIVERSARY GIVEAWAY

 To remain me why i started this blog, it’s almost the same as her, I want to follow food challenge online event and one of the requirement was had blog to post your photo and recipe. I started my blog 6 months ago. And now it’s one of my passion, food photography had brought me became a professional photography, even though i am still working on my photography skill and never satisfied with what i did so far. One of Australia promotion website had employed me as one of their photographer, and it’s because i sent them my food photos collections. 

Now it’s time to say that I felt in love with food photography. It’s not an easy job with all the things that you had to do to make a good photo but one that I love so much is when i had to do props hunting 🙂 And the worst thing is when i had to think about styling 🙁 But overall it’s all the story from my lil’ kitchen, with all my heart for my lovely family. You deserve all the good food guys 🙂 

 

 

with love
