Peach Gum Longan Sweet Drink, Egg Prata & Sambal Chicken

This was eve of the Mid-Autumn or Mooncake Festival. The morning was cloudy.

Morning sky at 7am.
Sunrise behind dark cloud at 7:07am.
On the way back from morning walk, walked to the Mamak shop to buy egg prata (roti telur).
Quite a lot for 1 piece of prata with egg and onion (roti telur).
I cooked oat for myself, added almond slices, walnut chunks and cranberries.
A friend came over to give us 2 mooncakes.
Red bean paste filling (left) and pandan flavour paste filling (right).
We took a long time to finish these 2 mooncakes.
I boiled sweet drink with peach gum with cane sugar and I added in dried persimmon slices and a can of longan. Gave some to neighbour.
I was not in the mood to cook so we went out to the Indian stall to buy dinner.
We bought fried noodle, egg prata (roti telu) and 2 sambal drumsticks (ayam masak merah).
We like this fried beehoon, usually sold out very early.
This egg prata or roti telur has no onion and is smaller than the one we bought in the morning from the Mamak shop.
I like this sambal chicken drumstick (ayam masak merah).
It was a rainy evening and I couldn't resist buying 2 pieces of fried chicken from the next stall in the same restaurant.
Evening sky at 6:55pm.

The heavens are telling the glory of God;
they are a marvelous display of his craftmanship.
Day and night they keep on telling about God.

Curry Noodle, Nyonya Kuih, Dim Sum & Sweet Drink

Time really flies even during pandemic. There is no chance to feel bored as I have activities such as gardening, blogging, cooking, housework, and etc. to keep me busy.

Morning sky at 7am.
Sunrise and hills.
Clouds reflecting the sunlight 7:08am.
Sunday breakfast.
After morning walk, we went out to town to buy breakfast.
We bought "Ma Jie" curry noodles from Restoran Yee Lock.
Dry curry version (left) for hubby and soup version (right) for me.
I also bought the above Nyonya kuih.
Neighbour boiled sweet drink with monk fruit (luo han guo), dried longan and white fungus and gave us some.
My neighbour bought fish balls (above) and glutinous rice in lotus leaf (below) for us. So, we ate Nyonya kuih, fish balls and tong sui for lunch.
We kept the above glutinous rice in lotus leaf for dinner.
Steam to heat up and good to eat.

Chee Cheong Fun With Shrimp Paste or Hae Ko

This was last Saturday. I am a week late in my posting.

Overcast sky at 7am.
Mist covered Kledang Hill - 7:03am.
Sun blocked by clouds - 7:20am.
A day with overcast sky.
Hubby missing his favourite steamed rice noodle (chee cheong fun) from Canning Garden.
We went to buy take-away 2 portions of chee cheong fun and 4 pieces of fried crunchy beancurd sheet.
Hubby's chee cheong fun with sesame seeds, fried crispy shallot + oil, and soy sauce. Later, all the pickled green chili will go to my plate.
I will usually order the same as hubby's chee cheong fun but this time I wanted to try adding some shrimp paste (hae ko in Hokkien). Penang version has a darker shrimp paste, this is a paler version.
We love to munch on these crunchy beancurd sheet.
Both chee cheong fun with or without shrimp paste taste great.
Simple lunch
Red dragon fruit, pear and few pieces of leftover stuffed items.
I remember the first time I ate a whole big red dragon fruit. I noticed my urine was reddish in colour and I thought there was blood in my urine. I was really worried and was thinking of going to the clinic. So relieved when I realized it was due to the dragon fruit and save me the trip to the clinic. The next day, the colour was back to normal.
Finally, we managed to clear the leftover stuffed items.
Pear for hubby because hubby doesn't like dragon fruit.
Fresh, sweet and juicy red dragon fruit.
A pretty moth on my Coleus.
This is my first time seeing this moth in my garden.

Don't hoard treasure down here where it gets eaten by moths
and corroded by rust or - worse! - stolen by burglars.
Stockpile treasure in heaven, where it's safe from moth
and rust and burglars. It's obvious, isn't it?
The place where your treasure is,
is the place you will most want to be, and end up being.
(Matthew 6:19-21, The Message-MSG)
