South Saanich/Esquimalt Edition

Coffee News South Saanich
Muffin madness: A neighbourhood in Bangkok, Thailand, is known for its Siamese-Portuguese culture. In the area called Kudeejeen, residents and visitors can enjoy a special treat that can be found in a small number of local bakeries. This is the khanom farang Kudeejeen, or the Kudeejeen “foreigner cake.” Made from eggs, wheat flour, and sugar, these muffins provide a satisfying crunch on the outside that gives way to a fluffy interior. Little pieces of dried fruit, such as raisins, adorn. The origins of this treat date back 250 years to the time when Portuguese settlers arrived in the area.
Dangerous road: A particular road in France is respected by the locals, who know how and when to safely travel on it. Called Passage du Gois, it connects the town of Beauvoir-sur-Mer on the eastern mainland to Île de Noirmoutier. The road is dangerous to use because it floods twice a day. If travellers are halfway across this approximately 4.5-kilometre (2.8-mile) road when the tidewater flows, they may face the danger of being submerged. Digital signs warn drivers about timing and conditions, and rescue towers are available in case people get caught in the middle.

Floating Forest: Homebush Bay in Sydney, Australia, has seen many retired ships pass through on their way to be disassembled. One, however, was saved from the wrecking ball. Called the SS Ayrfield, it still floats in this harbour today, and it is quite a sight. The rusted hull may not be pretty by itself, but the ship has been abandoned for so long that vegetation grows from it, and it has become known as the Floating Forest. Originally called the Corrimal, it was built in 1911 and was used as a transport ship. Visiting the ship is free, and it has become a popular tourist attraction for locals, visitors, and photographers.
Wandering moose: If you are a moose looking for a new home, why wouldn’t you trot up and down the streets of a town? That’s what a 400-kilogram (900-pound) male moose did in Centreville, Utah (U.S.). The young bull ventured into the town early one morning, just as everyone was waking up and heading out for a jog or to walk a dog. These big male moose can be dangerous creatures if frightened, so someone called the police and the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources. The police and biologists were able to tranquillize the visitor and transport him safely back to the wilderness.
