Dinner At Anderson Curry House, Ipoh.

A friend suggested Indian bread for dinner because none of us feel like eating rice. So we arranged to meet at The Andersonian's Club at 6 pm.
 Hubby and I arrived earlier than our friend. The menu states 6 pm but we were told that it is only ready at 6.30 pm.
Big tree in the compound.
  We were invited to take a seat while waiting for our friend to reach, which she did shortly after.
 We were the earliest customers and I used the time for taking some snapshots.
 View facing the Anderson School.
 A painting of the Anderson School clock tower on the wall of the club.
 This was also found on the wall of the club.
 A wooden screen with carved designs shielding the doorway to the washrooms.
 The Menu.
 Sizzling Tandoor Chicken
 Aloo Gobi
Cauliflower and potatoes - mildly spiced.
 Dhall Tadkha - Lentil specialty. 
Kashmiri Naan
Stuffed with mixed fruits and nuts. 
Keema Naan
Stuffed with spicy minced lamb
Garlic Naan - topped with chopped garlic. 
Hubby and I used to love garlic naan but after tasting the other stuffed naan, the garlic naan tasted plain.
This picture was before the last naan order arrived at the table.
We should have stopped at these but I underestimated the size of the naan.
Turned out that we couldn't finish all the naan and the chicken.
What we couldn't finished were all packed for the next day's lunch.

And I am sure that God who began the good work within you

will keep right on helping you grow in his grace

until his task within you is finally finished

on that day when Jesus Christ returns.

(Philippians 1:6, The Living Bible-TLB)

Growing Cucumber In My Garden

Sometimes, I will buy old or yellow cucumber (loh wong kwa in Cantonese) to boil soup. There was once when I bought an old cucumber for boiling soup and I threw the skin and seeds into a flower pot where I planted some Malabar Spinach stems without any intention to germinate the seeds for planting.
 After a few days, these seedlings were found growing from the discarded seeds. I have mixed feelings of whether I should uproot them or use some of it to grow.
I finally decided to choose 2 of the bigger and healthier plants to grow and see if I can get to harvest some home grown cucumbers.
 After a few weeks, the plant grew big and flowers started to appear.
 Bees were attracted to the flowers. 
 One morning while watering the plants, I was so excited to see this tiny cucumber.
 What a beautiful sight to behold!
 A few days later, I spotted another tiny cucumber.
I was actually looking forward for more of these.
 The first fruit have grown to this size.
 It is growing in width.
 Looks like the first fruit has stopped growing lengthwise.
The 2nd fruit has dried up and there was no sign of other fruit. Then I noticed that the plant was infested with pest. There were tiny black dots on the leaves and the leaves were turning yellow.
 I left the first fruit to mature.
 The skin of the cucumber has turned yellow and there were some crack lines on the skin.
Time to harvest the fruit.
 The one and only cucumber harvested from the plant which I didn't plan to plant in the first place. 
This is the size of the yellow cucumber.
I used this cucumber, pork rib, carrot, red dates and goji berries to boil soup.
Just enough for 2 people.

So you see, it isn't enough just to have faith.

You must also do good to prove that you have it.

Faith that doesn't show itself by good works is no faith at all

- it is dead and useless.

(James 2:17, The Living Bible-TLB)

Mini Zoo At Aeon Big Shopping Mall, Ipoh.

On the 31st August, we were at the Aeon Big Shopping Mall with some friends. It was a public holiday to celebrate our nation's national day. There was an expo held at the shopping mall. We couldn't find any parking in the open space so we have to drive up to the roof top to park our car.

Saw a small crowd at this corner. I was curious and went for a closer look.
Looks like a fun place for kids.
It was a mini zoo at the mall

Another big rabbit in a separate cage.
I have never seen such big rabbit before.
Chickens and pigeons
Children were allowed into the pen to touch or hold the birds.

It has fluffed up feathers around its neck.

One morning we were passing by this way in old town.
We stopped to take a few pictures.
Near an entrance door which was padlocked.
A vending machine or a door?
I didn't stay to find out.

Linking to Saturday's Critters.

You may know that there is nothing wrong with what you do,

even from God's point of view, but keep it to yourself;

don't flaunt your faith in front of others who might be hurt by it.

In this situation, happy is the man who does not sin

by doing what he knows is right.

(Romans 14:22, The Living Bible-TLB)
