Pre Chinese New Year Celebration At Delight Seafood Restaurant, Ipoh.

Every year before we usher in the Lunar New Year, our group, both the retirees and those still working, will come together for lunch to celebrate our friendship. We hope to keep this tradition alive for many years to come. Again, we chose Delight Seafood Restaurant because of the location and the quiet ambience.

 #1 - Lo Hei or Yee Sang (Prosperity or Blessing Toss)
Everyone will use a pair of chopsticks to toss or mix this dish before we eat.
 #2 - Crab meat soup
The server did the serving in individual bowls.
 #3 - Steamed fish
Served with chopped salted radish, garlic crisps and soy sauce.
 #4 - Braised pork leg
(with mushrooms, oysters and black moss or algae)
 #5 - Fried soy sauce prawns.
 #6 - Mixed vegetables with cashew nuts.
 #7 - Steamed rice with waxed meat and sausages.
#8 - Snow skin mochi with durian flavoured filling.
8 course lunch set at about RM 700.
The food was more than enough for the 13 of us.

Why is everyone hungry for more?

"More, more," they say. "More, more."

I have God's more-than-enough,

more joy in one ordinary day

than they get in all their shopping sprees.

At day's end I'm ready for sound sleep,

For you, GOD, have put my life back together.

(Psalm 4:6-8, The Message-MSG)

Chicken Rice At Restoran Sam Ma, Ipoh

One evening we were in Ipoh Garden and my friend suggested that we try this Chicken Rice for dinner at Restoran Sam Ma. Since we haven't been there, we were game to give it a try.
 We ordered a half poached chicken for 3 people.
 Blanched lettuce with garlic oil.
 Stewed chicken feet.
If we knew we were ordering this, we should have ordered a quarter chicken instead of half a chicken.
Condiments: blended ginger & extra spicy chili sauce
Chicken soup provided. Sorry, no photo of the fragrant chicken rice.
Restoran Sam Ma Chicken Rice
Address: 3, Jalan S.A. Lingam, Ipoh Garden South, Ipoh.
*     *     *     *     *
One morning returning home after breakfast, we saw this bird perched on this rod which is above our guppies fish ponds.
It suddenly dawned on me that this is the reason for the dwindling numbers of guppies. I have been very puzzled over the disappearance of my guppies because I do not see any dead fishes in the pond.
This culprit has been quietly feeding on my guppies. Instead of multiplying, the guppies seem to disappear into thin air one by one.

Linking to Saturday's Critters.

Feed the flock of God; care for it willingly,

not grudgingly; not for what you will get out of it

but because you are eager to serve the Lord.

(1 Peter 5:2, The Living Bible-TLB)

Our Favourite Fish Curry And Green Amaranth With Eggs

We woke up early and got ready for our morning walk. It was a lovely morning and here are some morning sky photos taken at the park.
 7:10 am

Double hibicus from my garden.
*     *     *     *     *
For dinner, someone suggested fish curry. So we ended up at Restoran Mun Ji in Menglembu.
Fish curry with assorted vegetables and tofu puffs in clay pot.
This curry is best eaten with white rice or bread.
 Egg and prawn omelette 
 Green amaranth with 3 types of eggs.
(normal chicken egg, salted egg, and century egg)
This was a very delicious dinner and we left feeling very satisfied.

Wise words satisfy like a good meal;

the right words bring satisfaction.

(Proverbs 18:20, New Living Translation-NLT)
