my scribbles of pandan & orange chiffon,  8 and 9-inch recipes… if you can understand


pandan chiffon, feels slightly too oily, oil left on hand after eating it.


This orange chiffon however is a winner, it is a great recipe, adapted from KitchenTigress.

I have proportionate her recipe which is for 8-inch mold to fit my 9-inch mould, i multiply all ingredients by 1.2 times, and also reduced the oil slightly, as the pandan chiffon i made using her recipe turn out a bit oily, which i am not quite sure why (whether the fresh santan i used is too thick, ie too much coconut oil, or because i did not beat the egg-yolk/santan/corn oil mixture till mayonaise-stage), so i am just going to reduce the oil very slightly for this orange chiffon. I also reduced the sugar slightly, and the chiffon turn out fine.

9-inch orange chiffon recipe:

Egg yolk mixture:

72g egg yolk (around 4 yolk)

50g sugar (i have reduced sugar slightly and the chiffon turn out fine, original recipe is 60g)

78g orange juice (freshly squeezed)

90g canola oil (don’t use palm oil which has a kinda smell, original is 96g)

18g orange zest (from 1.5 orange)

Sift together:

120g low protein flour

0.9 teaspoon baking powder

1/3 teaspoon salt

Egg white mixture:

216g egg white (from around 6 eggs)

small pinch of cream of tartar (less than 0.6 teaspoon)

60g sugar


– Preheat oven to 180 Celcius

– Whisk egg yolk and sugar till thick, add orange juice slowly while whisking

– Add canola oil slowly while whisking, make sure to whisk till mayonaise-thick texture

– Mix flour mixture in 3 additions

– Beat egg white with cream of tartar till slightly foamy. In LOW speed(so that air bubble will be fine and small), add sugar in 3 additions, and beat till the egg white won’t slide from the bowl when overturned.

– Fill mould, bang 3 times/use and cake tester to remove air bubble, then level top.

– Bake 15 minutes uncovered

– Cover with foil loosely and bake another 20 minutes

– Lastly, bake about 7 minutes(maximum 10 minutes) uncovered

– Flip over and cool the cake

This is a great recipe, do give it a try. Another 2 chiffon recipes below i tried making are also superb as well:

Birthday day trip to Sekinchan <3

first meal in Sekinchan, ie lunch in Hai Kang


Kedondong juice


Shark porridge, yummy with shark meat and fish ball


Visited a yong tau foo shop, didn’t know the filled YTF has to be put under the sun, i was wondering wouldn’t it spoiled under the heat ?!


See, all the filled, uncooked YTF


More YTF


Second meal, lunch no.2 🙂


seating area next to sea


our mantis prawn


taste ok


price of fresh oyster


quite good actually, really yummy and briny


bouncy locally produced fish ball, yum, too much for us though


star of the day, huge, fresh, sweet tasting steam prawn, i saw the prawn are brought out from freezer, then steam. Though frozen, this is really good! RM80/kg, above 400g for RM32


Where they keep the fresh oyster


Money well spent! 😛 The fresh prawn is really nice, missing it…


This is a quite off-the-beaten track restaurant called No 15 Redang. Some blog mention that need to make reservation well-in advance, and they seem to serve only dinner i think, not sure. We were there after noon, and was the first customer…


Call them to enquire: 019-644 7494


a fish/prawn cracker factory located in a corner lot house nearby, but it was closed that day

One of the best bakery. If you are wanting some good old bread, without those run-of-the-mill bread-improver-soft kind of bread, this could be the only place to go. I used to like Komugi bakery’s crusty french-style bread top with fish roe which is buttery/salty and nice, but they had since stop selling it ):

Above is pistachio roll with i think some dried fruit, nice bite.


Banana bread made with atta flour, it is soft and with waft of buttery aroma.


almond bites is pretty yummy as well, there is a slight sticky feel to it.


Their made in the house chocolate croissant, made with real butter, yum~ Although not looking as tall as some of the mass produced one, but this is delicious!

lemon tart is very nice, the tart shell is not soggy at all, yum~


banana tart is yummy!


Walnut perigord tart, the tart shell is slightly soft and moist, but the filing more than made up for it, and with ample of walnut


Mushroom & grilled vege quiche, great taste, just wish it is more heated through though, the inside is not heated enough

Recommended! Must visit~

Kodawari Menya Udon_1

Really yummy fare at reasonable price, especially love their big portion of tempura fish at about RM6 only. Really good when paired with bouncy udon noodle.

I do find their noodle dishes slightly too salty though. I thought my Bukkake Udon is served with soup broth, turn out the liquid is soy sauce, no soup for me ): and salty…

Kodawari Menya Udon_2

I tried their wakame udon 2nd time round, with soup! It is not bad. Their niku miso udon, served with onsen egg is a bit too salty though. They happily obliged when we requested soup for niku mison udon with doesn’t comes with soup originally.

Overall, nice noodle, great pairing with fried tempura, give it a try! I like their fish tempura very much. Recently found out they have a shop in Midvalley Aeon’s new food court – Food Street in LG floor, but they seem not to serve fish tempura, as i did not see it during my 2 visit there ):
