Glutinous Rice, Chicken Curry & Herbal Pork Rib Soup

Last Saturday was a another hot and humid day. Usually, I only need to water my plants once in the morning but now I have to water them again in the afternoon. By then, most of them will be limp and looking half dead.

Morning sky at 7:30am.

Breakfast plus lunch
The first time we went to buy the yellow glutinous rice, we were told it was sold out. The yellow glutinous rice or nasi kunyit is only available on Saturdays and Sundays.
On this Saturday morning, hubby get to enjoy this yellow or turmeric glutinous rice.
Chicken curry to go with the yellow glutinous rice.
As for me, I decided to try the savoury glutinous rice and I requested for chicken curry too. This heavy breakfast last us till dinner. Both items with 2 portions of chicken curry cost RM10. 
Angled luffa hanging from their vines in my garden.
The fruiting season is ending and the vines will be removed soon.

Crossing of state borders has been lifted for those who have been fully vaccinated starting from the 11th October, 2021 (Monday). It is good to see the number of daily reported cases going down. I don't know how accurate is the figure reported. According to the relevant authorities, we have to learn to live with the virus and live life as normal as we can since the virus is not going to go away now or in the near future. No more MCO and no more recovery phases.

Currently, not all eateries are willing or ready to open up for dine-in yet. Many are waiting for situation to improve and for all their staffs to be fully vaccinated. Not everyone is confident to dine-in yet, preferring to have home cooked food or depend on food delivery.

Dinner on the 11th October.
I decided to cook herbal pork rib soup aka Bak Kut Teh in Hokkien.
My home cooked Bak Kut Teh using pork ribs, pork belly and Chinese herbs. I added tofu puffs and fresh abalone mushrooms. Hubby doesn't like the smell of cilantro so I used spring onions.
Blanched greens, drizzled with garlic oil, oyster and soy sauce.

The following are photos of a butterfly I found fluttering around in my garden.
I waited for it to settle and of all places, decided to cling to the underside of a leaf belong to the Ciku tree.
I have to bend to get these snapshots, trying not to frighten it off.
I managed to get a good image of the butterfly.
The butterfly decided to change location.
The underside of the butterfly is this brown colour.
The underside of the butterfly has a prettier design.
Nice view of the upside down butterfly.


But stopl using this phrase, 'prophecy from the LORD.'
For people are using it to give authority to their own ideas,
turning upside down the words of our God,
the living God, the LORD of Heaven's Armies.
(Jeremiah 23:36, New Living Translation-NLT)

Enjoy Your Purchases At KameyMall

These days, we have been reading and hearing about safety precautions to protect ourselves and others from the covid-19 virus. No one is exempted from these safety precautions such as wearing of face masks, physical distancing, hand sanitizing and washing. All these have become the new normal of our lives and will be so for a long time to come. Now that many of us are able to return to work, we must not forget another form of safety precaution at our work place. Here, I am talking about safety hazards in our work places. I am referring to those of us whose work is related to construction sites, wholesale markets, or kitchens and etc. If you work in any one of these or similar places such as these, then you may be interested to check out these men or women work safety shoes. If you have not owned a pair yet, you may consider getting yourself a pair and you can start your search at Kameymall.

You may ask what is so special about these safety shoes. Compared to the common safety shoes or boots which are heavy in weight, these ultralight pig skin mesh construction shoes are light weight and well ventilated. The soles of these safety shoes are made of good quality material to protect the wearers from nail and stabs and they are puncture resistant. The front of the shoes are specially designed and made of pig leather to provide anti-collision and the large mesh upper surface are dustproof. These safety shoes are well structured to provide comfort to the wearers even when wearing the shoes for long hours.

Another item that I would like to recommend to the ladies is the Brazilian water wave lace front wigs. After many months of staying home, many of us are looking forward to meeting up with friends or have some fun time together. Of course, we want to look our best when we are in the company of our friends. It is about time that we go out in our best outfit, let our hair down and paint the town red. No worry if you have short hair, donning a long hair wig will do the trick.

If this is the first time that you are considering buying a wig, make sure to buy from a reliable source that will help you get the right measurement for your head size. If none of the available sizes is able to fit you, you can have the 13x4 lace front wig custom made just for you. The wigs are made from 100% virgin hair from a single donor with black being the natural colour. No problem if you want to dye the wig in different colours. 

Most places are opening up because of the lifting of movement restrictions. Both indoor and outdoor sports activities in small groups are allowed for places with low number of infected cases. One game that can be enjoyed both indoor and outdoor is the Zorb Game using inflatable Zorb balls or Zorb sphere. Schools and educational institutes are also opening up and Zorb games are fun to play. Zorb games can be played indoor in a large hall or outdoor in the field.

For your information, if you are buying the inflatable Zorb ball from Kameymall, you can have your own logo printed on it for free. The ball comes in a carrier ball and with a repair kit. Zorb games are suitable for both adults and children. If it is a children’s games, it is advisable to be accompanied and monitored by adults for safety measures. For safety precautions, the balls can be disinfected regularly after every play.

Even though three items are introduced here, there are other useful items worth checking out at this online store. As new users you can great discounts. As you shop, you get to collect coupons. Make sure to check out the promotions and flash sales. May your shopping experience be an enjoyable one.

There has been no rain for the past week. Looks like the hot and humid days are back until the next monsoon season. Hopefully by end of this month or beginning of next month we will get some rain.

Sunrise at 7:20am.
This type of sun means the day will be hot.
My plants will be withering by midday.
Time to temporary hold back the sowing of seeds until the rain returns.

Yes, everything else is worthless when compared
with the priceless gain of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord.
I have put aside all else,
counting it worth less than nothing,
in order that I can have Christ.
(Philippians 3:8, The Living Bible-TLB)
