Harvest Of God's Blessing From My Garden

I have gone missing for a few days and now I am back again from a short get away.

On the morning of the eve of our short getaway, we still went for our early morning walk at the park. The air was cool and fresh after the heavy downpour the previous evening.
 Thank God, the haze has been washed away.
Clear sky and nice sunrise to enjoy.
 We drove to town for breakfast.
 My craving for nasi lemak on a cool morning.
 Mee Jawa is one of hubby's favourite.
 Our unsweetened black coffee.

Let me see what I can harvest from my garden to take along to our short getaway. We planned a hot pot dinner up in the cold highlands.
I harvested 2 daikons (white radish) and
a white and green bitter gourds (bitter melons).
The above green bitter gourd (the first fruit) was from the new plant.
 My friends love basil so I also harvested some sweet basil. 
Next, I harvested 4 cucumbers and a single snake bean to add to the above.
The above is the first fruit of my cucumber plant.
Thank God for His abundant blessing on our garden.
*     *     *     *     *
That evening, I cooked a simple dinner.
 I cooked half a yam (taro) with dried prawns and kept the other half for the hot pot dinner.
Blanched a small portion beansprouts from the packet I bought for the hot pot.

Don't criticize and speak evil about each other, dear brothers.

If you do, you will be fighting against God's law

of loving one another, declaring it is wrong.

But your job is not to decide whether this law is right

or wrong, but to obey it.

(James 4:11, The Living Bible-TLB)

Homemade Buns & Noodle In Malabar Spinach Soup

One morning when we woke up, it was raining. No morning walk and no outside breakfast. So what was for breakfast? 
 There were 2 remaining steamed coconut buns in the fridge. I steamed the buns and we had a bun each for breakfast.
Hubby went out for an early lunch and I munched on some Mister Potato crisps.
 Later in the evening I went out to the garden to harvest some Malabar Spinach.
 I used the Malabar Spinach to cook soup with some chicken bones, red dates and goji berries. I also throw in 2 stubby okras harvested from the harvest.
I cooked dried noodle to go with the spinach chicken soup. For hubby, I added in the provided sauce to add some colour to the noodle.
I had my noodle plain since I will be adding soup to the noodle.
 This was our simple home cooked dinner.
 That evening we visited a friend and we stopped for sweet dessert (sweet potato tong sui) before we headed home.

 Male and female toilet sign. Which is you in the sign?
Found this sign at Hai Boey Seafood restaurant in Penang.
 Found this old bullock cart at a nearby Thai restaurant.
 My Bauhinia Kockiana are in full bloom again.
These clusters of flowers look like flower garlands.

God's my island hideaway, keeps danger far from the shore,

throws garlands of hosannas around my neck.

(Psalm 32:7, The Message-MSG)

Lunch In Penang Before Driving Back To Ipoh

From Penang Hill, we reached the apartment just before 12 noon. Our bags were all packed and ready to go but we need to wait for the owner to collect the keys and check the apartment before claiming back our deposit. We got into the car and drove over to Ghee Hiang (next to Tropicana) to buy a few bottles of sesame oil and biscuits. We took snapshots of these cute sculptures in front of the building.

Inside the biscuit shop.
Antique water boiler found in old coffee shops in one corner.

Some chilled beverages.

I missed these cute sculptures.
Good thing a friend took these snapshots.
*     *     *     *     *
After Ghee Hiang biscuit shop, our friend directed us to a food court for lunch. I can't remember the name or place of the food court. We shared the following food items.
We bought 2 packet of nasi lemak with blue rice (blue pea colour).
Steamed kuih in brown sugar syrup.
Not enough, more to come.
Then came this rojak Mamak style
Chinese doughnuts or hum chim peng.
We find these tastier than those in Ipoh.
A bowl of assam laksa to taste.
Some roasted pork to taste.
Coffee with floral pattern.
Penang has their own white coffee.
Crossing Penang bridge back to the mainland.
Goodbye Penang, until our next visit.

Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and

believes him who sent me has eternal life and

will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life.

(John 5:24, New International Version-NIV)
