Places that I go for holiday

Well, I have been to many places for holiday
such as Padang and Bukit Tinggi, Indonesia, Sabah, Melaka and lastly Pulau Langkawi

But, most of the pictures are already deleted or gone missing... 
(the picture is Googled)

I pick Bukit Tinggi, Indonesia

at first we landed in Padang, Indonesia
then we rode a bus to Bukit Tinggi.
I went there with my mother and sister, for us it is a trip to have a look at our origin place. Since we are Minang people, going to Bukit Tinggi makes us nervous just thinking about it.

this is the infamous Minangkabau house, we see these a lot in Bukit Tinggi. They are mostly surrounded by paddy field with different colour because they only plant it for themselves to eat.

This is the first place we visit, 'Tasik Maninjau' as in the observing lake.
it is actually at the peak of a volcano. But its already 'dead' hence the lake is formed because the lava is frozen and water filled up the volcano.
The journey to the lake was life risking and dizzy, because the road was build very steep, small (only a car can pass through) and it had 42 curve or bend.

Next we visit the birthplace of Hamka, the famous writer and novelist.

After that we visited the 'Istano Si Linduang Bulan' as in The Palace that protects the moon.

This is the external

This is inside the palace

We have to wait for few minutes before allowed to enter the palace because the meeting of the 'Adat' people are taking place.
This palace is actually a replacement palace located few metres away of the 'Istano Pagar Ruyung' as the original palace has burnt down in a fire that took place in 1961.
Full exterior of the palace

But I heard 'Istano Si Linduang Bulan' also burn down recently, in 2010 after being struck by lightning. Thus they built up a new palace in a new location named 'Istano Basa Pagar Ruyung'

After a the trip to the lake we visited 'Lobang Jepang' as in the Japanese Hole made by Japenese soldier as a hideout during World War 2.

This is the entrance gate

This is inside the hole. Pictures are hard to take because the picture are quite blurred.

This is all I can tell you guys about my holiday in Bukit Tinggi, Indonesia.

Happy past holidays everyone!!!

By : Whisk Kid
The Martha Stewart Show, April 2010

2 sticks (226 g) butter, room temp
2 1/3 c (426 g) sugar
5 egg whites, room temp
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 c (426 g) flour
4 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
1 1/2 c (355 ml) milk, warmed for 30 sec in microwave to bring to room temp
Red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple GEL food coloring. Liquid will not be vibrant enough!

Preheat the oven to 350F degrees. Oil and line how ever many 9” cake pans you have (I have three and I just reused them). 

Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.

Cream the sugar and butter, then add the egg whites (I cracked them all into one bowl) and add them a little at a time. Add the vanilla and mix until fully incorporated. Then, alternating between wet and dry, add the milk and flour mixture in two parts.

Divide the batter amongst 6 bowls (It's about 1 c each, but I did it by weight. Weigh your mixing bowl before you begin adding ingredients and then subtract the weight of the bowl from the final measurement after the batter is completed. Divide that number by six and add that weight of batter to each bowl), and then whisk a fair amount of the appropriate food color into each bowl. Keep in mind that the color of the unbaked batter will be the color of the baked batter. Pour into the pans and bake for 15 minutes each. 

When you remove them from the oven, let them rest on the cooling rack, in the pan, for ten minutes. Then flip, cover, and stash them in the fridge to cool quickly.

My Hobbies

Assalamualaikum and whats up dearie...

this is a hard topic for me,
because i'm actually a girl with few hobby... really, not much.
other than web surfing, I pretty much do not do anything else.
after a deep thought, i came up to conclusion that
i might have other hobby, which is: 

Watching Anime

This is some of my favorite anime of all time (my opinion only)
Some of them are old ones and some is newly released... All in all, i love anime.

Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle
In this one, i love how the hero Shouran stay by Sakura side.
The Blue Exorcist (Ao No Exorcist)
I love their brother love in this anime. How the little brother spent his life learning and mastering ways to protect his older brother who did not know that fact and his hidden mysteries.

Air Gear
interested about the Air Blade and the main character (Ikki) and his dream of becoming the best player and the journey to bring victory to his group.

Fantastic Children
The story of mysterious children that appear in each century with the same face and characteristic that is they will disappear after their hair turn grey.

This is a long running anime and still running.

and that is all. I do not know about others, but this is all I can remember and loved.

My Life in KIC
