Sugar Bowl Ski, Donna Pass, Sierra Nevada

DRIVING UP THE MOUNTAINS, THE AIR BECAME COLDER AND COLDER... but that did not deter us from getting down to breathe in the freezing fresh mountain air.  This is the best time to go sightseeing at the mountains, firstly, the drive up the mountain was smooth, no heavy traffic, the place was not crowded, parking was easily accessible and we can take any picture we need at any angle without any third party in them.   We are not photogenic but we simply like to be in the pictures at any angle....  LOL..

This place is called Sugar Bowl, it is a ski and snowboard area in northern Placer County, along the Donna Pass of the Sierra Nevada.  Sugar Bowl was the first ski area to install a chairlift and the scenery here is simply breathtaking!  I don't know when I would be coming by here again, thus the endless pictures to commemorate this beautiful tourist resort.....
Upon arriving at the entrance...

The Gondola where skiers were being carried down to the snowy mountains for skiing.. 
We didn't go down the mountains via the gondola... too much for me... LOL...
I prefer to be mesmerized by these awesome scenic from where I stood... 
The scenery was indescribable.... 
Love this one Most!
As usual... my footprints.... 
And my crazy poses which slowly "spread" to my siblings....
No sooner, they were doing what I did in mine... LOL...

  3. I believe I can fly! Your poses seem to be saying. Your siblings must be thinking - can't beat her so join her lah. Thanks for showing us the beautiful scenery. Must be very cold up there.

  5. So beautiful Claire! My favorite is your favorite. I love that little lake down there. So you do not ski..me neither. The first time I tried was the last, as I fell on my butt before I even started.

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
