Platis Gialos Beach, Mykonos
The chora...

Platis Gialos (pronounced Yialos) is in distance, 4km from Mykonos town (chora). There was a day we headed for Super Paradise beach, but we have to get to this beach first since all boats to the other beaches only depart from here. From the chora we took a bus to this beautiful beach, taking only 10 minutes. Here we bought the onward tickets to Super Paradise! Here are some pictures taken at Platis Gialos!
From the hotel, it was just a short stroll to the chora bus stop... *in this picture, Mr Cafe Elysium

And after 10 minute in the air-conditioned bus, we reached the Platis Gialos...
There were various luxurious hotels and mini markets here, only a few steps from the beach... But most holidaymakers still prefer staying in the chora area...
Platis Gialos beach! Love the golden sand and its beautiful crystal-clear sea water.
We had a drink, and relaxed on the beach for several hours... lying idly on the sunbed while waiting the for boat for Super Paradise!
On the other side of the beach..
They have lovely shops too! And my favourite Scandal ice cream were everywhere! Ice cream in the sun..who doesn't like it?
Personally, Platis Gialos is the third best beach to my liking in Mykonos!
The boat ticket to Super Paradise beach... Will write about the beach in the next entry!

Selamat Hari Raya, Maaf Zahir dan Batin..

My Raya fares better this year... Last year, we celebrated Raya without dad for the first time; and it was hard for everyone in my family to adjust themselves. But not this year...Alhamdulillah.

This year we received shocking news that my cousin Norisham was believed to be murdered along with Dato Sosilawati and two others, as reported in major newspapers nationwide... It just made me wonder: What kind of people we have in this world nowadays?

Anyway, it's not too late for me to wish you guys who celebrate Hari Raya, a Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri, Maaf Zahir dan Batin!

Grilled Grape-stuffed Chicken

This is the entry on my Grilled Chicken as promised a while ago. For this recipe, I experimented with grapes! The result? It turned out just like I wanted. I love the sourish smell of the grilled grapes, as I carve the chicken before serving it. Below are the steps how I prepared my Grilled Grape-stuffed Chicken.

Clean a whole chicken. Soak it in a bowl of water, and throw in several slices of orange and a few pinches of fine salt. Let the bird soak for at least 30 minutes.

These are the ingredients you'll need for the stuffing: A handful of green grapes, three whole garlics, a lemon, two pieces of bay leaf, and some dried rosemary.

Cut the lemon in two, and stuff it into the chicken with the other ingredients.

Seal the chicken, and sprinkle with some olive oil, rosemary and salt. Grill for four to five hours in low heat.

Once ready, glaze the chicken with some honey, and put it back in the oven for at least 15 minutes until its skin turns really crispy! Now, your chicken is ready to be served! Bon apetit!
