She reads about food :) *giggle*....has her fingers permanently clicking at her beloved camera's shutter release button....and has her nose up scouting for new culinary inspirations ;). *naturally~ heheOur family vacation at the Pangkor Island resort last Xmas weekend was lots of fun for everyone. I got some time away from the kitchen and running errands to just sit back in the sun with a book. I haven't read all of it yet..but so far; "The Hungry Years" by William Leith is hilarious!
The trip by ferry from "Lumut' to the island resort was ...erm...difficult~ Haha..it was a public holiday and families were out full-force with kids...backpacks.. etc to have a weekend trip at tiny Islands close-by.
The queue and the ferry ride there was made more convenient and less stuffy with priority seating for guests at the Resort. *thank goodness*~ We could have been standing there for hours if not.
When we finally got there...welcome drinks were served and jolly christmas carols were sung.everything was smooth sailing...plenty of activities for everyone!
A good stretch of soft fine sand, beautiful views and many shady spots with lush greenery to just lie back. Everyone got to have a nice relaxing weekend~we had some precious family "bonding" time and celebrated Mom and Dad's wedding anniversary on Xmas eve together.At dinner...the resort was beautifully lit and the buffet spread looked pretty impressive. I was more interested in taking photographs of the displays more than eating my dinner! Haha.
A dessert stall making South Indian Appom was absolutely sensational!!~~ definitely worth a special mention. :P The lady had our family going back for seconds...thirds and forths! My aunts and I worked our family charm....and came home with the recipe~ *giggle* I'm trying it out this afternoon...Hope to have a write up about it by tomorrow; so keep your eyes peeled *wink*
