A Trail Along Red Rock Canyon

ANOTHER DAY WAS SPENT GOING TO THE RED ROCK CANYON... It was just an hour away from Las Vegas and this time we took our own sweet time to get ready unlike the other day when we went to the Grand Canyon which was a five hours drive away.

For nature lovers especially, this is one of the places not to be missed.  Though I am not well-versed with plants and gardening, I managed to know some of the plants' names and most of them are cactus actually... but sorry, I think I cannot remember them all... According to what I heard, this is the best time to see the cactus blooming.  In another month or two, the land will be dry and out...

The few of us walked along the trail and saw some interesting carvings at the foot of the mountain...

Setting out on the road...
As we approached the Red Rock....
This time we did not stop to take the Red Rocks...
Beaver Cactus...
Barrel Cactus...
Cannot remember this though...
We hiked and followed the trail to the deeper side of the mountains...
The carvings on the mountain....
We saw someone climbing the mountain.... and I felt so scared for her.... 
I zoomed in to the climber... 
She looked like "helpless" as the man at the top of the mountain waited... 
That's us... yes!
And leaving our "prints" here before leaving...
Red Rock Canyon...

  1. The cactus is beautiful!! I see the Beaver Cactus is named because it is shaped like the tail of a beaver! Oh, that lone climber! It looks like she has no ropes or gear to catch her.

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.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger!

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...
