Sugar Bowl Ski, Donna Pass, Sierra Nevada

DRIVING UP THE MOUNTAINS, THE AIR BECAME COLDER AND COLDER... but that did not deter us from getting down to breathe in the freezing fresh mountain air.  This is the best time to go sightseeing at the mountains, firstly, the drive up the mountain was smooth, no heavy traffic, the place was not crowded, parking was easily accessible and we can take any picture we need at any angle without any third party in them.   We are not photogenic but we simply like to be in the pictures at any angle....  LOL..

This place is called Sugar Bowl, it is a ski and snowboard area in northern Placer County, along the Donna Pass of the Sierra Nevada.  Sugar Bowl was the first ski area to install a chairlift and the scenery here is simply breathtaking!  I don't know when I would be coming by here again, thus the endless pictures to commemorate this beautiful tourist resort.....
Upon arriving at the entrance...

The Gondola where skiers were being carried down to the snowy mountains for skiing.. 
We didn't go down the mountains via the gondola... too much for me... LOL...
I prefer to be mesmerized by these awesome scenic from where I stood... 
The scenery was indescribable.... 
Love this one Most!
As usual... my footprints.... 
And my crazy poses which slowly "spread" to my siblings....
No sooner, they were doing what I did in mine... LOL...

  5. So beautiful Claire! My favorite is your favorite. I love that little lake down there. So you do not ski..me neither. The first time I tried was the last, as I fell on my butt before I even started.

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL....

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

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...
