My Adenium Beauties

All my Adenium plants have stopped flowering probably due to the raining season. I have moved my Adenium plants out of the rain and currently they are not getting much sunlight. Once the rainy season is over, I will have to move them out into the sun again.

Today, I came across these photos of my Adenium blooms in one of the folders on my desktop and I want to share them with you in this post. I hope to see these beautiful blooms again when the warm season starts. The blooms are from 4 different plants.
#1 - Type 1 (Single layer petals)
#2 - Type 1
#3 - Type 1
#4 - Type 1
#5 - Type 1
#6 - Type 1
#7 - Type 2 (Single layer petals)
#8 - Type 2
#9 - Type 3 (Multi layer petals)
#10 - Type 3
#11 - Type 3
#12 - Type 1 (left) & Type 3 (right)
#13 - Type 3 (left) & Type 2 (right)
#14 - Type 3

The following pictures are for joining Saturday's Critters.
This is the first time seeing this red insect.
This looks like a white egret which I have seen in some blogs.
Please correct me if it is not because I don't know much about birds.
These 2 birds were seen in a residential area.

And just as there are different kinds of seeds and plants,

so also there are different kinds of flesh.

Humans, animals, fish, and birds are all different.

Early Dinner At Nam Hing Loong Restaurant, Temoh.

We planned to end our 1 day trip with dinner at Nam Hing Loong Restaurant, Temoh. After our lunch at Hutan Melintang, we noted that it will be too early to have dinner in Temoh. According to my friend, the restaurant has changed its business hours to 12 afternoon right up to 10 pm. I also came to know that there is a coffee shop in Temoh that sells yummy steamed buns.

We reached Temoh just after 4 pm. We went straight to the coffee shop and were told that the steamed buns were not ready yet. Our orders were taken down and we were told to collect the steamed buns after our dinner.

At the restaurant, we were not the only early birds because there was another group before us. We have heard about their signature crunchy pork knuckle. We were happy that that day the pork knuckles were available and need not have to pre-order.
Crunchy Skin Pork Knuckles served with 2 types of sauce.
I especially enjoyed the sauce on the left, goes well with the pork knuckles.
We ordered a small portion of spicy stir fried "sang cheong" (intestine/fallopian tubes). This is an exotic dish to some. Some loves it, some won't touch it.
A small portion of stuffed tofu and vegetables.
Stir fried wild ferns with spicy prawn paste.
Dinner for 4 people costs us RM 74.40
(including rice and drinks)
Evening sky @ 6.20 pm
After collecting our take away steamed buns, we started our drive back to Ipoh.

The picture below was taken one evening after coming out from a restaurant in Ipoh. This big golden cloud looked like it was descending down on us.

"I didn't know he was the one," John said again,

"but at the time God sent me to baptize he told me,

'When you see the Holy Spirit descending and resting upon someone

- he is the one you are looking for.

He is the one who baptizes with the Holy Spirit.'

I saw it happen to this man,

and I therefore testify that he is the Son of God."

(John 1:33-34, The Living Bible-TLB)

Lunch At Makanan Laut Men Lok, Hutan Melintang.

From Teluk Intan, we took a leisure drive to Hutan Melintang which is a fishing village. Hutan Melintang is located next to the Strait of Malacca and most of the population work in the fishing industry.
 Can you see a fisherman mending his fishing net on his boat?
Looks like home to the fishermen with clothes hanging on the lines.
 Fishing boats and small boats were also resting.
 Very quiet and peaceful on a public holiday.
A young boy playing nearby. 
Custom Office, Hutan Melintang.
 We chose this place Makanan Laut Men Lok to have our lunch.
Decorations on the wall.
 Is this a fish or an eel?
My friend recommended that we try this fish or eel dish.
The flesh of the long fish cut into long strips and deep fried with batter.
Next, we ordered some flower crabs cooked in sweet sour sauce.
A plate of green vegetables stir fried with garlic.
 Initially, we ordered steamed prawns but later changed it to steamed grouper fish.
The fish was quite a big one, so we chose the more meaty middle portion.
