I love muffins –the buttery; soft and chockfull of ingredients type.
First attempt in muffin-making this morning. I followed this recipe from Noob Cook and made 2 different flavoured muffins – blueberry and walnuts.
I always prefer to look for locally based recipes as it’s easier to round-up the ingredients.
Nowhere near what Noob Cook’s photos! Mine turned out a little too dry and charred on the surface. Mum said that she liked it as she likes a little crispy/charred muffins. I think she is trying to make me feel better. haaa…
Xi En is my other loyal fan.
Eyeing the first batch of blueberry muffins:
LOOK: Giving the walnut muffin an overview first:
SMELL: the nose can’t lie
EAT: went for the bite!
Nice, baby? He finished it – so I supposed it’s alright! haaa
Blueberry and Walnut Muffins:
The Malaysia railway – Keretapi Tanah Melayu (KTM) station at Tanjong Pagar went down in history at the end of June 2011. My deepest memory of this place – I took a train from this station in 1999 to Kuala Lumpur by myself – to visit my then boyfriend now hubby! My mum sent me off at the train station. Apparently that was my mum’s only trip to the KTM station too!
It was a little crazy thinking back … it was an overnight ride. I merely clutch on to my bag and tried to stay awake as the train made numerous stops before reaching my destination. Now a mummy myself – I wondered if I will ever let my children take a midnight train to a foreign place all by themselves at the age of 19…. Am I just paranoid? :S
Anyway, like many others, we went to the station to take some photos and bid farewell!
The signs and sights:
(to ensure we “have been there”! haaa…)
And of course the railway itself:
For those who are keen to trek the railway tracks – part of them are still open to public – http://www.ura.gov.sg/railcorridor/schedulework.html.
We “trekked” the tracks once too:
My little boy was born with a half collapsed lung and needed breathing machines to save his life.
But he has come a long long way – strong lungs now! God is good!
