Broken Hill, Solid Dreams

Broken Hill, Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve, San Diego, CA
I was hiking with a visiting friend from Florida at Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve when the sight of Broken Hill from a distance caught my friend's attention. She asked if we could stop so she could take mementos of the scenery that inspired her. After putting her camera away, she murmured..."Broken Hill. ... Solid Dreams."

Surviving on Wifi Alone: Avoiding Roaming Cellular and Data Cost

During my 3-week stay in Philippines, to avoid foreign cellular and data cost, I set my cell phone to air plane mode so that I won't get accidental fees from incoming voice mail and data. My plan then was to buy a very inexpensive pre-paid phone to call and text. But it never happened because of my crazy schedule. I guess it was a technology blessing in disguise that my plan did not materialize, otherwise, I would have not known that I could last in 3 weeks using wifi only in my cell phone. On seeing my mobile phone subscription bill today, I am so happy and proud to say that I spent $0.00, yes, nothing, on my cell phone during my 3 week stay in the Philippines.

Bun Bo Hue

I never paid attention to the name of this spicy soup before, I thought all Vietnamese soup are called pho. Thus, I referred to this soup before as spicy beef soup until I have heard differently from Amanda of Self Sagacity and Icy of Wandering Thought. Thanks to them, I finally look at the menu and found out the name is not pho! :)
This is my favorite Vietnamese soup, I super love the spiciness and the taste of the herbs and spices in this soup. I wish I know how to prepare this.
