My 25 Counties Journey

A DAY BEFORE OUR DEPARTURE FROM SAN FRANCISCO, my BIL handed me two pieces of paper and told me that I would be needing them when I reach home. hahahaha... He really has a good sense of humour! He knows that I own a blog and I write a lot of crazy stuff there and many times, I ended up giving wrong information too... hahahaha...

Well, what would one expect from a human being absent minded like me?  Or should I say... a poor memory?  So.... in order to set things right, he took the trouble to make photostat a map out, outlined it with green pen and then write down all the counties that he had taken me!  Isn't that nice!!  *To be on the safe side so that I won't be giving out wrong and inaccurate information.. that's me!

Okay, let me see... where have I actually been to....

And the arrows showed that I have been to Nevada and Arizona too!  
Isn't my BIL meticulous!
Just look at that... 25 COUNTIES!
Did we really pass through all those small towns?
Maybe most of the time, I was half asleep, I guess... hahahaa...
No wonder whenever we passed through some towns, I got jerked up from the "driver" and after a mumble from me...."Yes, ok...." I was back to dreamland.... ZZZzzzz....
Anyway, whatever it takes, I really appreciate all their thoughts for giving us such a meaningful kind of vacation..... Miss them much!!  Hopefully will see them REAL soon!!

  3. Your BIL is such an organised guy, very systematic...no cincai cincai kind of person.

    I envy you - so much energy plus you have the chance to travel. I'd usually choose to laze around and relax in the hotel room though, I'm so lazy...and will venture out only when it is time to eat. :D

  11. Your BIL is a very thoughtful person too. And he took the trouble to do it for you. You are so blessed! So when is your next destination! So fun to travel with you through your posting!

  12. What an interesting way to note the counties you have left your footprints. My friend does the same for Thailand as he wants to cover all the "Jangwats" which are like province.
    I never thought of this good counties idea while there except that I only counted the number of states in US.

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
