Cream Cheese Chiffon Cake with Choc Chips

Yummy yummy! I really love this cake, although it's simple and light, it's very tasty.  The moisture is just right and it's not overly creamy as well.  My daughter really loves it!  

I just back from a business trip from Beijing again. Glad that I enjoyed the weather and the air this time as it's very cooling and not polluted.  Although it's a short trip, I am very exhausted.  I didn't have enough sleep as when I arrived in Beijing, it's passed midnight and I returned, I took a midnight flight home.  

This trip is basically for work, nothing else.  Beside hotel was office.  I just commuted between hotel and office everyday, life seemed so boring, right? For short trip, I am fine to be simple as I am not expecting something exciting.

Glad that I'm finally home.  Home sweet home.  I think this may be my last trip to Beijing this year.  I believe most people don't enjoy business travel, me too!   I'm looking  forward to my vacation in end Nov, that is more exciting!

Having said so much about my recent business travel, let's get back to baking.   This cake was baked before I left for Beijing.  This is not a new recipe, I enhanced this with more cheese.  Trust me! I strongly recommend to give recipe a try.  Cheer!
