La Brea Tar Pits At Hancock Park

FROM BEVERLY HILLS AND Rodeo Drive...next we stopped at La Brea Tar Pits and Museum along Wilshire Boulevard.  No, I didn't go in to the museum....we just walked around the park and I was being "educated" throughout the walk....
At the entrance of Tar Pits....

This lake is actually a pit left over from the asphalt mining operations in the late 1800s.  Since then, this pit has been collecting rain and groundwater thus creating a lake.  There are still bubbles, sheen and stink that come from a deep underground oilfiield.... Animals were stuck inside during the ancient days...
These elephants were stuck during that time... Poor thing...

The fossils are discovered buried at the tar pit.... 

Leading to the museum...
We didn't go in... Too educational for us.... Hahaha...
Take a picture will do.....
See anything interesting here?  Good to get a tan though...

Thank goodness the weather was very cooling.....
The oil fileld... Still productive at certain parts in the park....
The yellow cones are the ones with oil....
Even the streets have a strong tar smell... Alright, this is history...
One for the album before we left Santa Monica to go home....

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
