Growing Yellow Cherry Tomatoes In My Garden

I was in the supermarket and I saw some yellow cherry tomatoes on the shelves. They look fresh and I bought a packet. I ate some of the tomatoes and left some behind and kept them in the fridge. I have totally forgotten about the tomatoes.
 When I found these tomatoes, they were all wrinkled. So instead of throwing them away, I decided to grow some tomato plants. These yellow cherry tomatoes are different from the grape tomatoes that I have grown earlier and which I have posted here if you wish to read about. These are bigger than the grape tomatoes.
 I chose 2 of the biggest and healthiest plants to grow in this pot. But due to the hot and dry weather, the tomato plants were not doing well.
 They look rather undernourished possibly due to insufficient fertilizer. It was hot and I was not spending much time in the garden. It did bear a few fruits.
 It didn't bear as much fruits as my previous tomato plants.  
Just waiting for these tomatoes to ripen before plucking them off the plant.
 These are some of the fruits I harvested.
 The tomato plants were later infested with the mealy bugs and it was too late to save the plants. I quickly got rid of the tomatoes plants before the bugs spread to the surrounding plants.

Let your roots grow down into him and

draw up nourishment from him.

See that you go on growing in the Lord,

and become strong and vigorous in the truth you were taught.

Let your lives overflow with joy and

thanksgiving for all he has done.

Red Wine From Jerusalem & Dinner At "Sam Can Cook"

It was the last day of September when we were inform that our friend and her husband will be visiting Ipoh. This friend had earlier visited Jerusalem and she brought back some red wine for us to taste. 
We were invited to join our friends and sister for lunch but hubby and I couldn't made it because we had a lunch date with another friend.
We informed them that we will be able to meet up after lunch at their sister's house. 
 It was wonderful to meet up with our friends. Later, we went to a nearby food court for our afternoon drinks and snack. Our friend brought along the red wine.
 This was the bottle of red wine brought all the way from Jerusalem.
 Cana wedding wine of Holy Land.
Everyone had a taste of the red wine, just enough not to make us drunk!
 Thank you, friend for taking the trouble to bring back the wine for us to taste.

Come, let's talk this over, says the Lord;

no matter how deep the stain of your sins,

I can take it out and make you as clean as freshly fallen snow.

Even if you are stained as red as crimson,

I can make you white as wool!

Spending The Whole Saturday With Friends

I received a call from a friend to inform that the meeting will be in Aeon Station 18, Ipoh. It was a nice Saturday morning and we were told to be there by 11 am. So by 10.30 am I was out of the house driving to Station 18. Someone came to pick us and took us to the Kedai Makan Ban Mee 101. The last time I ate here was in January this year - 11 months ago!
A bowl of "Loh Mee" for my brunch!
Didn't take photo of what my friends ate.
We ordered these crispy deep fried stuff bean curd sheet to share.
A glass of lemon ginger drink for me.
After brunch, someone decided to go all the way to Aeon Big in Falim!
The distance is about 9.5 km and that is supposed to be the shortest way.
My first snapshot of a Christmas tree in Aeon, Falim.
A white Christmas tree with gold decorations.
After walking around and looking at all the items on sale, we stopped here.
Another friend treated us to this very silky smooth ice cream.
It was a record breaking shopping day for me. Never in my life had I shopped for 8 hours! I had to find a place to rest my tired feet while my friends continue to shop. I really take my hat off to them. Not once did they mention about tired feet. Sigh, maybe it is because of my age!
*     *     *     *     *
By the time I reached home, I quickly took my bath and off we went to Bercham for our dinner date with another group of friends. A dinner gathering of 5 friends at Soo Har Yee restaurant. Some friends wanted to try the food here.
Steamed mixed seafood platter.
A must order dish if you are eating here.

Instead of rice, we ordered noodles.
Stir fry vermicelli for 2 people.

And a piece of fine cottony bread to eat with the sweet sour sauce.

It was a long day but a very eventful day indeed!
It is not always that we get to enjoy such an eventful day!

That is what the Scriptures mean when they say that

God made Abraham the father of many nations.

God will accept all people in every nation

who trust God as Abraham did.

And this promise is from God himself,

who makes the dead live again and speaks of future events

with as much certainty as though they were already past.

(Romans 4:17, The Living Bible-TLB)
