Edibles Growing In My Garden

These days, I have not been out for foodie hunt so today, I will share about the edibles growing in my garden.

Bitter Lettuce.
I got the seeds from a friend.
From the first sowing of seeds, only 2 seedlings sprouted successfully.
I thought the success rate was low, so I sowed all the remaining seeds and these sprouted. These are now grown in the veggie patch in front of my house next to my neighbour's.
Corn plants in the front veggie patch.
I have 4 yam beans growing in black plastic bags in the front garden. Hope there is something for me to harvest in the near future.
Skinny cauliflower plants.
Green brinjals.
Chili plants are still fruiting.
Snake long beans seedlings newly transferred to these big pots.
We found the following mural during our short trip to Penang in 2022.
Children flying kites.
This mural was painted on the side wall of a corner shop.

Linking to Monday Mural.

The rich man thinks of his wealth as an impregnable defense,
a high wall of safety. What a dreamer!
(Proverbs 18:11, The Living Bible-TLB)

Koi Or Japanese Carps

This was one week before CNY 2023.

Morning sky at 7:05am.
Setting out on our morning walk.
We drove out to Ipoh old town for breakfast at Kedai Kopi Ah Chow.
I ordered noodle in clear soup at RM6.50
I don't know if the price has been increased.
There was a prawn, few pieces of roast pork and chicken meat.
Hubby ordered dry curry noodle at RM6.50 from the same stall.
We were with friends at this place and there is a fish pond with lots of beautiful Japanese carps swimming in it.
The sky reflected in the water.
The water is very clear.

Again, the Kingdom of Heaven can be illustrated
by a fisherman - he casts a net into the water and
gathers in fish of every kind, valuable and worthless.
When the net is full, he drags it up onto the beach and
sits down and sorts out the edible ones onto crates
and throws the other away.
(Matthew 13:47-48, The Living Bible-TLB)

Lunch at Restoran Nam Hing Loong, Temoh, Perak

Yesterday, 5th day CNY 2023, hubby had a gathering with his course mates. A few of them met up in one of their house and spent some time catching up with one another. They came from Singapore, Johor, Kuala Lumpur and Perak and this is their once a year gathering. I was home with my son. They ordered the following dishes for their lunch.

Venison with young ginger slices and spring onions.
Pork tender.
Brinjal or eggplant.
Sang cheong (innard or pig's intestine).
Blanched green veggie.
According to hubby, everyone was giving thumbs up for the dishes.
In spite of the crowd, they only waited for half an hour to be served.
The following sky photos were taken in September, 2022.
Sunrise at 6:55am.
Spotted a rainbow during our morning walk at 7am.
Took another shot of the rainbow before we continued on our morning walk.

Linking to Skywatch Friday.

For I will see the rainbow in the cloud and
remember my eternal promise to every living being on the earth.
(Genesis 9:16-17, The Living Bible-TLB)
