~~~~~
9th June - out on our morning walk.
Almost deserted road.
A busy road with heavy traffic before lockdown.
Very few walkers and very few cars on the road.
For breakfast, we had noodles, blanched baby Chinese kai lan with the leftover blended ginger chicken from previous dinner.
Growing chilies in my garden.
Grown from store bought chili seeds.
I have to harvest them before they ripen.
They tend to rot easily when ripen.
Will be kept in the fridge until they are needed.
~~~~~
Dinner
Neighbour bought us stewed sour plum fish head plus a slice of fish.
Fish head for me and slice of fish for hubby. Very flavourful and delicious.
Blanched baby Chinese kai lan, drizzled with garlic oil, oyster and soy sauce.
Yummy dinner with plain rice porridge on a warm evening.

In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun.
It is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber,
like a champion rejoicing to run his course.
It rises at one end of the heavens
and makes its circuit to the other;
nothing is deprived of its warmth.
(Psalm 19:5-6, The Living Bible-TLB)

Fish Balls & Loh Mai Kai, Pattaya Fried Rice & Fried Chicken Rice

This was 2 Mondays ago. There were 4 fish balls and 2 loh mai kai (steamed glutinous rice) in the fridge, given to us by our neighbour. Upon reaching home from morning walk, I put the fish balls and loh mai kai to steam and boiled water to make tea.

The tea bags were given by another friend.
We each had 2 fish balls and 1 loh mai kai, enough to sustain us till dinner.
~~~~~
Our neighbour called me to inform that she had ordered dinner for us.
#1 - Pattaya Fried Rice
#2 - Fried Chicken with black pepper sauce + rice.
She also ordered 5 pieces curry puffs which we kept for next day's lunch.
The 2 sets came with free iced lemon tea.
Pattaya fried rice: Flavourful fried rice wrapped in egg omelette.
Thanks to our neighbour for ordering 2 different sets for us to enjoy.
~~~~~
The following snapshots were taken on our morning walk.
Every morning, we pass by this house where there is this dog sitting on top of its owner car. It sits facing outward keeping a close watch of what is happening in front of him.
This is the first time I see a dog on top of a car. It is common to see a cat on top of a car but not a dog.
As hubby walked past, it turned its head to keep its eyes on hubby.
I think it doesn't like me stopping in front of the house, pointing my hand phone in its direction. Before it could get down from the top of the car, I quickly moved on.

"Happy and Blessed Father's Day" to all fathers.


Since the Lord is directing our steps,
why try to understand everything that happens along the way?
(Proverbs 20:24, The Living Bible-TLB)
