HAVING A GOOD TIME IN SEMENYIH.

Today, I am suppose to post about the dinner we had in Broga and the durians that we ate for supper the day we arrived in Semenyih but I couldn't find the photos. I must have misplaced or accidentally deleted the whole lot. So clumsy of me!

Anyway, after our durian supper, some of us played mahjong games till past midnight. The rest of us just sat around, exchanged updates and chit chat until we went off to bed. That ended the first day in Semenyih.
Next morning, Saturday, I woke up early and took this sunrise photo. Some of us were already up and about, but those who played mahjong the previous night were not yet awaken from their beauty sleep.
We went for our morning walk with our host outside the compound. A nice place for morning walks because it was very quiet, the air fresh and no traffic at all.

Fruit trees and plants in the backyard.

Passion fruits - fruiting season almost over, only last few fruits waiting to ripen.

Preparing to go out for breakfast at Semenyih market and do some marketing for the night's steamboat or hotpot dinner.

The prices here are much cheaper and some of the things sold here are not sold in Ipoh's markets. Markets are very interesting places.
Yam bean salad rolls wrapped with seaweed. This is my first time eating this. I love it and will go back for more on my next trip. I should have taken pictures to show what they put inside. Hopefully I will remember when I go again.

Dry stirred wheat flour noodle (pan mee dry version) with deep fried dumplings (wanton), deep fried anchovies (ikan bilis) and minced meat.

Curried steamed flat rice noodle (chee cheong fun) with deep fried stuffed beancurd served in a stainless steel plate.

Banana leaf wrapped nasi lemak, tasty with plenty of sambal paste and peanuts.

Friendly games of mahjong to pass the time.

I have not mastered this game yet, so I didn't join in.
Finally, dinner time!

Ingredients for steamboat or hotpot, mostly bought from a frozen food shop near the market. So many variety to choose from.

In the old days, whenever we have steamboat or hotpot gathering, there will be loads of tedious washing, cutting and preparing of ingredients but nowadays almost everything was prepared and frozen, even meat were thinly sliced, vacuum packed and ready to be used.
The ingredients I enjoyed most is the veggie and soup.
We over-estimated the ingredients for 9 people. Left over more than enough for another round for next morning's breakfast.
Boiling pot of delightful, yummy treasures!

And now, my little children, stay in happy fellowship with the Lord

so that when He comes you will be sure that all is well and 

will not have to be ashamed and shrink back from meeting Him.

Since we know that God is always good and does only right,

we may rightly assume that all those who do right are His children.

(1 John 2:28-29, The Living Bible-TLB)
