The Long And Winding Road Trip

ONE FINE MORNING, WE WOKE TO A CLEAR BLUE SKY....  the guests in Sacramento were looking forward to a river drive and we passed by a few towns and cities.  Before leaving the house, I had a crazy time doing some "modeling" no one in Malaysia expected me to... LOL...  The moment the pictures were being taken, the sky turned cloudy... oh dear, hope the rain would not start otherwise our spirits would be dampened. :)

Our road trip started from Sacramento to Freeport, Hood, Courtland, Locke, Walnut Grove, Ryde and further down south to Rio Vista, then passing through Lodi, Galt and back to Sacramento.  Interesting?  How did I manage to remember all these names?  Now I am getting smarter, I took a picture of the map on the way so that I can remember!  On the way, we sang songs... especially Lodi pronounced or "Lor Dai" and there is this song by CCR and we started to sing this when we passed Lodi.... Just about a year ago, I set out on the road... seeking my fame and fortune, looking for a pot of gold... Things got bad and things got worse, I guess you know the tune... Oh Lord, stuck in Lodi again..... "  Anyone remembers this song?  :)

Reanaclaire's many poses before setting out on the road..... 
Hi Fren!!
Jom!!  Let's Go!
The long and winding road....
That leads me to your door.... 
Will never disappear.....
I've seen that road before...
It always lead me here....
Lead me to your door....
The wild and windy night, that the rain washed away....
Has left a pool of tears, crying for the day.....
Why leave me standing here.... Lead me to your door.....
Sorry, sorry, I was being carried away by this song...
The Long and Winding Road.....
Pear Trees.... everywhere along the road....
Starting to bloom.....
Taking a Break along the way...... 
Half mission accomplished....

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...

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
