Fish+Veggie Curry, Eggs+Green Amaranth, Fried Pork Rib & Steamed Lala

The weather forecast showed that there will be rain in the morning. The sky was dark but it didn't rain so we set out on our morning walk.

Morning sky with dark clouds at 7:25am.
There is a foldable umbrella in the backpack that hubby used to carry and it will come in handy if it rains.
It remained gloomy and cloudy for most of the day without any rain.
One of our favourite restaurants is Restoran Mun Ji, Menglembu. We have our favourite dishes which we will order without fail. Below are 2 dinners about a month apart that we had and you will know what are our favourites.

1st Dinner
#1 - Fish curry with assorted vegetables and tofu puffs.
#2 - Green Amaranth with egg gravy
(century egg, salted egg and normal chicken egg).
#3 - Fried pork rib
Purple Wishbone flowers from my garden.
These will sprout out in the flower pots and ground in my garden.
After a while, these will dry out and will be removed. After a while, new plants will reappear. They come and go as they like.
2nd Dinner.
#1 - Fish curry with assorted vegetables and tofu puffs.
#2 - Green Amaranth with egg gravy
(century egg, salted egg and normal chicken egg).
#3 - Steamed spicy and sour clams or lala.
As you can see #1 & #2 are fixed, so we try to order something different for #3 whenever we dine here. Sometimes, we will order Dong Po Yoke (Jiggling Braise Pork Belly) for the 3rd dish.
Lovely Pink Showers Mexican Petunia from my garden.
This busy bee came just after I had watered the plants.

He will listen to the prayers of the destitute,
for he is never too busy to heed their requests.
I am recording this so that future generations will also
praise the Lord for all that he has done.
And a people that shall be created shall praise the Lord.
(Psalm 102:17-18, The Living Bible-TLB)

Nasi Lemak, Chinese Crullers, Chempedak & Mini Mooncakes

On this particular morning, at our regular coffee shop, we saw packets of nasi lemak for sale on the counter. Someone is supplying pre-packed nasi lemak to the shop.

Hubby ordered a packet of nasi lemak (RM2) and a glass of hot Chinese tea (70 cents).
Some fried anchovies, peanuts, a quarter hard boiled egg, sambal and rice with coconut milk.
I ordered unsweetened black coffee and some Chinese cruller, ma keok and hum chim peng (Chinese doughnuts) which I bought from another shop on our morning walk. These are selling at RM1.20 per piece. Another stall is selling RM1.30 per piece.
Walking home after breakfast at about 8:05am.
For lunch, we had chempedak fruit. It is a seasonal local fruit and has a strong smell when ripen. Hubby bought 3 fruits at RM7 per kilo and they all ripen at almost the same time.
The flesh is thick with small seeds and very sweet. We ate it fresh. Some prefer to fry it with flour batter.
Mooncake or Mid-autumn festival falls on the 10th September, in about a month's time.
We received a gift box of cute mini sized mooncakes.
2 boxes inside the red box.
The mini mooncakes were separately packed.
4 different types: white lotus snow skin mooncake, pandan lotus spiral mooncake, lotus traditional mooncake and red bean Shanghai mooncake.
Since we have tasted these mooncakes, there is no need to buy mooncakes.
Heritage treasures from Penang.
An old building on the right and a modern high rise building on the left.
I didn't go near to take a closer look but it looks like it is still occupied and not abandoned. I can see 2 air-conditioner units and plants well taken care of.

We are pressed on every side by troubles, but not crushed and broken.
We are perplexed because we don't know why things happen as they do,
but we don't give up and quit. We are hunted down,
but God never abandon us. We get knocked down,
but we get up again and keep going.
(2 Corinthians 4:8-9, The Living Bible-TLB)

Turmeric Rice With Curry Chicken, Loh + Prawn Noodle & Murals

This was on the first day of August. 

Morning sky at about 7am.
After our morning walk, we drove to Restoran Meng Meng Kee, Menglembu new township for breakfast.
Hubby ordered turmeric rice with chicken curry.
I ordered loh mee but requested for a mix of prawn noodle broth and loh mee broth so that the broth will not be too thick.
 After adding black vinegar, it tasted great.
Instead of meat slices, they give minced meat, prawns and half hard boiled egg.
My Bauhinia Kockiana before we put up the new trellis. The plant helped to shield our living room from the outside.
Now with the new trellis supporting the Bauhinia Kockiana.
The following photos were taken at the back lane behind the Old Town White Coffee facing the Ipoh Padang, Ipoh old town.
Tin mining activities.
Same as above.
Dulang washers.
A sculpture.
I didn't see any description or I may have missed it.
Painted on the tarmac of the back lane.
Hubby was waiting for me in the car so I didn't follow this painted crooked path.

Linking to Monday Mural.

He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out from the bog and the mire,
and set my feet on a hard, firm path, and steadied me as I walked along.
(Psalm 40:2, The Living Bible-TLB)
