We Walked On The Sea In Bonneville Salt Flats

ITS A LONG LONG JOURNEY.....  I thought Las Vegas was the longest drive I had ever taken in my own life... but no, Utah broke my record.  I could not keep count of the hours, too many... we reached Sacramento after more than 12 hours or was it 14??  Of course, we stopped many times along the way.... seniors like us need to rest our weary mind and straighten cramped legs every hour or so.  LOL...

I don't think we would be coming this way again for many years to come.... if there is an opportunity, I would love to come during winter, it would be a totally different scenario...

Before we exit the city, we had to stop at one of the attraction spot called Bonneville... Something very rare and spectacular cos it is filled with salt... Sea of Salt... Looks like snow in summer and walking on the sea of salt, I had to be very careful with my steps.  I only stayed near the banks but our Commander was very brave, he walked far far away from where we stood....
Have to be careful with our sneakers or slippers.. 
I wore slippers cos we need to walk off the salt...
Unless we need a new pair of shoes later on!
Here is what I extracted from Mr. G.
Wind and water combine to create the flat surface of salt. Each winter, a shallow layer of standing water floods the surface of the salt flats. During spring and summer, the water slowly evaporates while winds smooth the surface into a vast, nearly perfectly flat plain.
Looks like snow from here... 
From where I stood...
Tourists are fascinated... like me..
Our Commander walking off to the middle... of nowhere...
*terrified me*

We feel safer at the banks.... 
Indeed much much safer... I could do all poses here.... 
Bye Utah!!
finally.....

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...
