Pu-Tien is one of our favorite restaurants beside Crystal Jade at Takashimaya. We not only love their simple & homely food and also it does not burn a hole in the wallet. The branch at Parkway Parade is much bigger, in terms of floor space, than other branches.

Perth is a place easy to navigate around. We stayed in King's Hotel which is in middle of town. Shopping is easily done and has a range of international food outlets.
We took a cruise along Swan River to Fremantle. The cruise and sightseeing offices are stationed along St Georges Terrace which is close to Kings Park. Royal Mounting Police is a frequent sight in this area and the Blue Bell Tower is one of the tourist attractions.

Amongst all Crystal Jade Shanghai restaurants we like to frequent the one at Changi Airport Terminal 3 as the standard of food is the best amongst all other branches. We had our dinner there on the eve of 2nd daughter's departure to Sydney and as her flight was at 1am we had plenty of time to dine at leisure. The queue for seats was long and we had to wait for almost half an hour to secure one.

There were balance of cranberries bought during Christmas. To use them up and to free up my freezer I turned them into jam.
Pour hot jam into sterilized jar and tighten lid. Place bottles upside down and let it cool. The jam should be refrigerated once open.
