A Day Trip To Laughlin

FIRST TIME TO LAUGHLIN...

My sister suggested going to Laughlin one evening, she had not been there since the 1980s.  That is surely a long time ago, time to go to "explore" again, must be lots of developments going on since.  Not too far from our place, the journey took less than two hours.  We stopped halfway to check out a casino shed and for a call of nature.  My Boss gave me $2 to sit by the machine to pass time and before the money vanished into the machine, the coins kept dropping out from it.  Total payout $10!  Not bad, huh... we exchanged it for some drinks and went on our way...
This is the place we stopped for call of nature... 
And the slot machine we stopped to get "rich" by $10...
LOL... 
Laughlin, here we are..... 
We parked our car here and we walked and walked... despite the hot weather....
Hot, hot.... for me..
But for most tourists, they love the sun....
They go for scuba... boating...cruising along Colorado River...
Clear blue waters and skies...
And we ladies hid behind the shadows....
Thought of going for river cruse...
On second thoughts, we just walked along the river....
Then we stopped for our lunch..... 

And some pictures to remember Laughlin before we left....

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...
