Chee Cheong Fun With Shrimp Paste or Hae Ko

This was last Saturday. I am a week late in my posting.

Overcast sky at 7am.
Mist covered Kledang Hill - 7:03am.
Sun blocked by clouds - 7:20am.
A day with overcast sky.
Hubby missing his favourite steamed rice noodle (chee cheong fun) from Canning Garden.
We went to buy take-away 2 portions of chee cheong fun and 4 pieces of fried crunchy beancurd sheet.
Hubby's chee cheong fun with sesame seeds, fried crispy shallot + oil, and soy sauce. Later, all the pickled green chili will go to my plate.
I will usually order the same as hubby's chee cheong fun but this time I wanted to try adding some shrimp paste (hae ko in Hokkien). Penang version has a darker shrimp paste, this is a paler version.
We love to munch on these crunchy beancurd sheet.
Both chee cheong fun with or without shrimp paste taste great.
Simple lunch
Red dragon fruit, pear and few pieces of leftover stuffed items.
I remember the first time I ate a whole big red dragon fruit. I noticed my urine was reddish in colour and I thought there was blood in my urine. I was really worried and was thinking of going to the clinic. So relieved when I realized it was due to the dragon fruit and save me the trip to the clinic. The next day, the colour was back to normal.
Finally, we managed to clear the leftover stuffed items.
Pear for hubby because hubby doesn't like dragon fruit.
Fresh, sweet and juicy red dragon fruit.
A pretty moth on my Coleus.
This is my first time seeing this moth in my garden.

Don't hoard treasure down here where it gets eaten by moths
and corroded by rust or - worse! - stolen by burglars.
Stockpile treasure in heaven, where it's safe from moth
and rust and burglars. It's obvious, isn't it?
The place where your treasure is,
is the place you will most want to be, and end up being.
(Matthew 6:19-21, The Message-MSG)

Fiery Sunrise After A Wind Storm

This was Thursday, 23rd Sept. morning. There was strong, howling wind the previous night, followed by a short heavy downpour.

6:50am - starting our morning walk.
Can still see the moon in the sky - 6.51am.
Sunrise at 6:57am.
Sunrise at 6:58am.
Fiery sunrise at 6:58am.
Sunrise at 6:59am.
Uprooted tree, first sighting of damage from the previous night wind storm.
This uprooted tree doesn't have much root.
Good thing, the tree fell on the side of the road and not across the road.
Golden sunrise at 7:17am.
The sunrise reflected on the house on the right.
Another sighting of damage.
A broken branch fell on the concrete wall of the school.
Morning sky and Kledang Hill.
My purple hearts plant.
A close up of the purple heart flower.

Silver and gold are purified by fire,
but God purifies hearts.
(Proverbs 17:3, The Living Bible-TLB)

My Potted Banana Tree Is Fruiting!

This was last Friday. The day started with a gloomy gray sky.

Morning sky at 7:25am
Hubby went to buy fried noodle while I stopped at a new stall to buy 2 curry puffs for RM1.
I was watching a cooking video and it has to do with olive vegetable. I was curious, so I bought 1 bottle to try. I took out a bit to eat with my oat porridge (above). I still prefer the crunchy texture of the pickled lettuce.
I had a pleasant surprise that morning when I was watering my plants in the garden. I looked up the banana tree and saw that it has budded. Sometime last year, a friend gave me a baby banana plant because I want to plant one in a pot just for its leaves.
A few months later, I changed my mind and thought of cutting it down but kept putting it off.
It looks like a type of banana (pisang awak) that is only good for cooking or frying and not nice to eat fresh when ripen.
I am curious to see how the bananas will turn out and decide whether I still want to cut it down.
I have been watching the progress of the formation of the bananas.
So far, I can see 3 small combs of bananas.
For these, I am thankful.
For dinner, we had leftover food from the previous day's dinner. In addition to the stuffed items, I also make fried dumplings (sui kao) with the extra filling. It was a no rice dinner because we wanted to finish all the leftovers.

This Good News tells us that God makes us ready
for heaven - makes us right in God's sight - when we put
our faith and trust in Christ to save us.
This is accomplished from start to finish by faith.
As the Scripture says it,
"The man who finds life will find it through trusting God."
(Romans 1:17, The Living Bible-TLB)
