An Appetizing Dinner For 2 At Restoran Sun Winfat, Ipoh.

There is a restaurant we have stopped patronizing for some time because we felt that the food quality has dropped. In fact, we have struck out this place from our "places to eat" list. But recently, we noticed an increase in the dinner crowd when we passed by this place a few times. It looks like the food quality has improved. We guessed that it could be due to a change in the cooks. Anyway, one evening we decided to have our dinner there, to give it another try. 
 We were recommended this dish, something like "dong po yoke" but it was cooked with "nam yee" (fermented red beancurd). There was more lean meat than fat, so it was to my liking. Taste wise is good and there was no wastage of discarding the fat.
This is our favourite. Stinky beans cooked with minced meat and spicy paste (sambal belacan). It was a very appetizing dinner for us. Total cost of dinner MYR 30 (approx. 7.27 USD). It is inclusive of 2 small rice and drinks. Now, we have added this place back to our "places to eat" list.

We once had 2 brown hamsters as pets for my sons but that was a long time ago. I do not mind hamsters but I am afraid of rats/mice.

We need have no fear of someone who loves us perfectly;

his perfect love for us eliminates all dread of what he might do to us.

If we are afraid, it is for fear of what he might do to us and

shows that we are not fully convinced that he really loves us.

Hakka Noodle With Friend At Pusat Makanan MXII, Ipoh.

Last week, we had a breakfast date with an old friend who is also an ex-colleague of mine. We agreed to meet at our usual meeting place and from there, we will all go together in our car. Before that, we were up early for our early morning walk at the recreation park. I never miss looking up at the sky.
Hubby and I are always on the look out and ready with our cameras for sunrise shots. This was what we get on that morning at 07:32:37 am.
 Sometimes, I get to see lovely sky view at south-west.
This may be mistaken for a sunrise. Time 07:06:57 am.
 This is directly opposite the sunrise at 07:32:18 am. There was a dark cloud looming over the Kledang Hill. Looking at the time, we still had time to water my plants and a bath before heading out to town to pick up my friend.
We came here a few times to find the stall closed but that morning, it was opened. It was a week of school holidays plus public holidays and not surprising to find all the tables were occupied. We managed to get a table on the 5 foot way, on the left side where the woman in red is clearing the table. Just nice for 3 of us.
Once seated, my friend and I went to pick whatever we wanted. Stuffs like fish and meat balls, fried goodies and placed order for the noodles and tofu with the person in charge. Then we went back to our table and waited our turn for the food to be served. We used the time to catch up and update one another. After waiting for about 30 mins, we were beginning to feel hungry. The food always tastes better when we are hungry.
 A bowl with crunchy fried goodies for 3 people.
 A bowl of mixture - fish balls, meat balls & stuffed tofu for 3 people. 
Same bowl of mixture but with a clearer view of the soft and smooth stuffed tofu.
And 3 plates of single portion Hakka noodle with diced pork. The noodle has to be stirred and mixed well with the gravy before we started to eat. We enjoyed the yummy breakfast and a wonderful fellowship!
We were here at Pusat Makanan MXII, Jalan Dato Tahwil Azhar, Ipoh.

all the other rich and wonderful blessings he promised;

rottenness all around us, and to give us his own character.

Farewell To My Aglaonema Red Cochin.

I once had a beautiful plant in my garden. It was given to me by a church friend. I took it home and place it under the edge of the side porch away from direct sunlight.
After some time, it began to grow beautifully and was doing very well. The leaves multiplied and the colour of the leaves grew to deep pink or red.
 Initially, the colour of the leaves were a dull pink. 
It even flowered and I was hoping to see new plants appear. But it was not to be. My happiness was short-lived. Sometime happened to this plant.
The leaves started to droop and the plant looked sick. It could be due to the excess rainwater from heavy rain during the wet season. I moved the pot away from the edge but it was too late. The plant didn't recover. So it was farewell to my lovely Aglaonema Red Cochin plant. I am not sure whether I will get another plant in the near future.
