Yummy-licious Breakfast & Dinner With Friends

Usually we don't go for morning walk on Saturday mornings because we have breakfast date with our friends. While waiting for our friends, I had a nice surprise waiting for me. I was unlocking our gate when I saw a rainbow above the houses in front of me.
 This rainbow appeared after an early morning shower.
Another beauty is these bright periwinkle flowers.
 I only took photo of my own breakfast. I ordered Ban Mee (soup version) and requested to add 2 Fuchow fish balls (with minced meat filling). This place is worth returning for more.
 This coffee shop serves their coffee with a piece of biscuit.
*     *     *     *     *
We had dinner with the same friends at Taman Boon Bak, Ipoh.
 Deep fried pork rib (for yim kuat or fire salt bones)
 Romaine lettuce sauteed with fermented tofu, garlic and chili.
Steamed Tilapia with spicy savoury sauce.
 "Daulat Tuanku" mean "Long live the King"
Passing through, we noticed the road is decorated with lighted bulbs. Even the tree trunks on both sides of the road are lighted up.

Hear my prayer, O LORD! Listen to my cries for help!

Don't ignore my tears. For I am your guest -

a traveler passing through, as my ancestors were before me.

(Psalm 39:12, New Living Translation-NLT)

Dinner At Restoran Weng Kee, Ipoh

Last Morning evening, we met up with friends for dinner in Ipoh Garden. We chose Restoran Weng Kee in Ipoh Garden South. We reached before 6 pm and most of the tables were reserved. We didn't make any reservation but were directed to a table for the 4 of us. 
 My friend recommended this "Kapitan Chicken" and she was right, it was good.
 Taro with dried prawns, cooked till really soft.
 Soft and silky tofu with fresh mushrooms.
 Water spinach (kangkong) with shrimp paste (belacan).
I finished this small portion of rice because I was hungry that evening.

But the spiritual man has insight into everything,

and that bothers and baffles the man of the world,

who can't understand him at all. How could he?

For certainly he has never been one to know the Lord's thoughts,

or to discuss them with him, or to move the hands of God by prayer.

But, strange as it seems, we Christians actually do have within us

a portion of the very thoughts and mind of Christ.

(1 Corinthians 2:15-16, The Living Bible-TLB)

Stuffed Bitter Gourds & Snake Beans Egg Omelette

I was halfway watering my plants outside my house when I noticed the hill was lighted up by the morning sun. I seldom get to see this so I stopped to take a snapshot.
 7:58 am
 That morning I harvested the above from my garden: Snake long beans, white and green bitter gourds.
 Bauhinia Kockiana - a sun loving plant.
 Some of the flowers will end up with seed pod just like the above. Once the seed pod dries up, it will burst open and self disperse the black seeds.
 With the white and green bitter gourds harvested from my garden, I stuffed them with fish paste, minced pork, chopped salted fish and spring onion.
 With the excess stuffed ingredients, I made fish and meat balls without the bitter gourd.
 I divided them into 2 portions. The one on the right which was lightly fried to be kept for the next day's dinner.
*     *     *     *     *
1st day dinner
 I boiled multi grain rice porridge, Teochew style to eat with the stuffed bitter gourd. The plate on the right was kept next day's dinner.
*     *     *     *     *
2nd day dinner
 Stuffed bitter gourd - light frying to heat up for dinner.
 I took some of the snake long beans to make egg omelette with diced beans.
Dinner without rice. Sambal chili sauce as condiment.
Thankful for these simple home cooked meals.

For everything God made is good,

and we may eat it gladly if we are thankful for it,

and if we ask God to bless it,

for it is made good by the Word of God and prayer.

(1 Timothy 4:4, The Living Bible-TLB)
