Beef Soup Noodles For Dinner With Friends At Cheong Kee (Tong Sui Kai), Ipoh.

Our friends commented that they have not eaten the Beef Soup Noodles of Cheong Kee for a long, long time. So last Friday evening together with our friends we were at Cheong Kee, stall no. 47 for dinner. Cheong Kee is at Tong Sui Kai (Cantonese), Jalan Sultan Ekram, Ipoh.
Beef Balls for 4 people
Beef Tripe & Brisket Soup for 4 people
3 bowls of plain flat rice noodle in soup.
It looked like very little noodle.
After stirring, the noodle was not that little.
My friends mentioned that the taste of the beef soup noodle was not as tasty as it used to be in the old days.
 We also ordered 2 bowls of fried wanton (dumplings) from the next stall.
The 2 plates of chili sauce came with the beef noodle.
 Hubby wanted to try the wanton noodle from the next stall and he added BBQ pork slices. The noodle was topped with some crispy deep fried pork lard. 
 The plate of wanton noodle was accompanied by this bowl of wanton (dumplings) with some greens in clear soup. 
 For drinks, hubby and I had lemon juice with sugar. I added some dried salted sour plum to my lemon juice for added flavour.

 "Good salt is worthless if it loses its saltiness;

it can't season anything. So don't lose your flavour!

Live in peace with each other."

(Mark 9:50, The Living Bible-TLB)

Home Cooked Herbal Chicken Soup & Mixed Vegetables.

We had a very heavy downpour last night and knowing that my plants were all well watered, I lingered on bed for a little longer. We had breakfast before attending the Sunday church celebration and after church, we came straight home. We had for lunch some fruits, biscuits and I made tea with the tea leaves from Germany given to me by a friend.
Looking at the clouds, it looked like there will be another heavy downpour tonight. I could hear the thunder rolling at a distance. Since we had a light lunch, we had dinner early. It is better to have home cooked dinner in the comfort of our home than going out in the rain looking for dinner.
This is the pretty tin container for the tea brought back from Germany by a friend. Everything is written in German so I have no idea what type of tea leaves but we love the fragrance of the tea. We drink it pure without sugar or milk.
 I cooked herbal chicken soup with a free range chicken (kampung chicken) and a packet of dried herbs. This time I used this vision pot to slow boil the soup.
I had the skin removed from the chicken. I chopped the chicken into big pieces and I boiled the soup until the meat easily came away from the bones.
I cooked a plate of mixed vegetables with the broccoli which I bought from the newly opened Cash & Carry Econsave in Jelapang. It was selling for less than RM 2 for a head of broccoli. This was our home cooked dinner without any rice.

It is God's will that your good lives should silence those

who foolishly condemn the Gospel without knowing

what it can do for them, having never experienced its power.

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

My Kind Of Breakfast, Hot & Spicy Noodles!

I have a liking for hot, spicy and sourish food. Very seldom do I take mild or bland food. I have no problem taking food that is hot, spicy or sourish for my first meal of the day. The times when I take mild tasting food, it is usually when I am not feeling well or when I have an upset tummy.

Below are my past 2 days' exciting and yummy-licious breakfasts to share with you.
 Curry Noodle - flat rice noodle with BBQ pork slices & blanched long beans. Preferably with additional curry paste to my bowl of curry noodle.
This curry noodle is at Restoran Blue Sky, Jalan Mas 1, Falim, Ipoh.
 Tom Yum Seafood Noodle - rice noodle with prawn, cuttlefish, fish paste, etc. I had this breakfast at Sin Choi Yuen Coffee Shop, Taman Pertama, Ipoh.

 Can you guess what this is? I noticed this weird looking thing clinging onto my garden slipper one late evening. I have to switch on the porch light to have a clearer look. I hurried to grab my smartphone. It had 4 long slender projections or tentacles below it.
 Then it began to transform before my eyes and I was very puzzled. The long tentacles shortened and were with fluffy ends.
 The fluffy tentacles grew shorter and shorter.
 And it dropped to the ground and it turned out to be this insect.
If I hadn't seen it being transformed with my own eyes, I wouldn't believe it was this insect.

Linking to Saturday's Critters.

For our earthly bodies, the ones we have now that can die,

must be transformed into heavenly bodies that cannot perish

but will live forever.

(1 Corinthians 15:53, The Living Bible-TLB)
