Enjoying Chef Yang Noodles For Breakfast.

Once again its the time of the month. Last week my friend and I went to town to run our errands. Sometimes she drives her car and sometimes I drive my car. We make it a point to keep this once a month appointment to meet up, enjoy breakfast together and at the same time to pay our bills at the UTC - Urban Transformation Centre.

Most of the times we usually take about 4 hours of time together. In a way I think it helps to keep our friendship bond strong. Sometimes we will do some shopping together too.

Last week we came back to Restoran Char Yuen for breakfast. It is located at Jalan Centrepoint 1, Pasir Pinji, Ipoh. It is a corner shop, behind the EE Chan Convenience Store and also behind Restoran Tuck Kee, Pasir Pinji, Ipoh.
I ordered this special homemade yellow noodle topped with minced meat & cucumber strips.
The noodle is best eaten with the spicy sambal belacan.
 My friend ordered this soup based seaweed noodle. It is green spinach noodle (noodle hidden), with meat slices, green veggie, seaweed, etc.

Going through my food folder, I came across these food photos taken at the same eatery. It was few months ago when our golden girls came for our breakfast meeting.

Below were our breakfast orders by 4 golden girls.
Curry noodles with BBQ & Roasted pork.
Prepacked Kerabu Beehoon (rice vermicilli). It is very tasty and appetizing.
Looks like the minced meat serving were more few months ago compared to what we had last week.
Again, I noticed that this had more ingredients than the one we had recently.
Because of the increasing prices and GST, the prices of foodstuff has increased tremendously.

Dear friends, God the Father chose you long ago
and knew you would become His children.
And the Holy Spirit has been at work in your hearts,
cleansing you with the blood of Jesus Christ and
making you to please Him. May God bless you richly and
grant you increasing freedom from all anxiety and fear.
(1 Peter 1:2, The Living Bible-TLB)

Blooming Flowers & Doggies.

Happy Saturday!

I have been quite busy for the past few days. I have been trying to do some serious spring cleaning and am going about it quite slowly. Gone were the days when I can clean the whole house in one day all by myself, starting from early morning to past midnight. Now I am going about it in a much slower pace to avoid getting body aches. The aches is a reminder that I am no longer young as before.

Today I am sharing some photos of flowers from my own garden. Some are doing very well in spite of the very hot weather or very heavy downpour.
Red Periwinkle.
White Dwarf Mexican Petuania - grown from self-seeding.
Red Bauhinia at front fencing.
Pink Dwarf Mexican Petunia - in a large fountain bowl.
Sand Ginger or Cekur - white flower.
Japanese Roses - Orange and Deep Pink, single layered petal.
This is Fido, my hair dresser's dog.
Yesterday I was there for a hair cut.
Sometimes she barks at me, sometimes she doesn't.
Yesterday she didn't bark at me. Then when I sat down, she started to bark.
After a while, she jumped onto the settee
After a while, it went to sleep. I too felt like sleeping in the air-con room in a hot afternoon.
Spotted this dog doing his "small" business.
After he is done, he turned around and used his hind legs to kick dust/dirt at the tree.

Linking to Saturday's Critters.

Whenever you enter a city or village, search for a godly man
and stay in his home until you leave for the next town.
When you ask permission to stay, be friendly,
and if it turns out to be a godly home, give it your blessings;
if not, keep the blessing.
Any city or home that doesn't welcome you -
shake off the dust of that place from your feet as you leave.
(Matthew 10:11-14, TLB)

Skywatch, Wanton Mee & Half Boiled Egg on Toasts.

A happy Friday to you!
Usually we start our morning walk around 6.50 am. But on this one particular morning we woke up earlier than usual and we get to start our morning work about 6.30 am. I like to start my day early so that I can get more things done.
It was still dark but the path is lighted with street lights all the way.
I took this photo at the start of our walk.
Some start as early as 5.30 am.
We prefer to wait until 6.30 am where there are more people.
Across the lake are the residential houses.
 Lights reflection on the lake and on the trees.
I was having fun playing with my camera. 
 I love this beautiful misty view and the reflection on the lake.
This was taken from another angle.
 These are lotus plants with pink flowers growing in the lake.
In the evening, people will be found fishing under the shade.
 The walking path has mini uphills and down hills.
One morning I saw this papaya tree totally balded.
But now it is growing leaves and I could see some fruits too.
 I stopped at a roadside fruit stall to buy a papaya and 3 mangoes.
Once again we were at our regular place for breakfast.
Our favourite wanton noodle stall.
Hubby's wanton mee (dry version) with bbq oink oink, blanched green veggie and pickled green chili in the spoon.
This is my breakfast for that day. I haven't eaten this breakfast for a long time.
A little bit of soy sauce and pepper on the eggs makes my breakfast more tasty.
Hubby's iced bitter black coffee and my non sweetened lemon tea. My breakfast will last me until dinner time. In between, I usually take fruits, nuts or munch one or two biscuits. I only take lunch when I go out with my friends or with hubby when I am really hungry.

Linking to Skywatch Friday.

If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat;
if he is thirsty, give him water to drink.
In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head,
and the LORD will reward you.
(Proverbs 25:21, NIV)

Changing To New Fencing.

Last year November, we together with our neighbour decided to change the old chain link fencing that divided our side garden to a new one. A friend recommended a contractor to us and he came to measure and a quotation was given.

We agreed to the quotation and a date was given so that I can clear my plants and pots away from the existing fencing to give room for the workers to do their work. 
This is the newly fixed intermediate fencing.
According to the contractor this fencing will not rust.
This snapshot was taken from our garden.
This was our old intermediate chain link fencing.
Our garden is about 2 feet higher than our neighbour's garden.
The back wall of our neighbour and ours.
View was from our neighbour's garden.
The first owner built the concrete wall. The current owner fixed the grilles to increase the height for added security.
Needed additional reinforcement because behind this fencing is the back lane.
 It was quite a task to move the flower pots before and after fixing of new fencing.
 It took us about a week to tidy up the garden and rearrange back the pots.
I did a lot of pulling out, clearing of old plants, replanting and pruning.
 Hubby started the hanging pots project.
He planted Japanese roses in the hanging pots. 
 A mixture of big and small pots of flowering plants and edibles.
Most of them are newly planted seedlings and my garden looked bare.
I still have some available pots to grow veggies.
This is my mini garden at the side of my house.
 Linking to Good Fences.

My work was to plant the seed in your hearts,
and Apollos' work was to water it,
but it was God, not we,
who made the garden grow in your hearts.
(1 Corinthians 3:6, TLB)

Breakfast At Restoran CY Noodle, Ipoh.

It is time for the golden girls to meet up again for breakfast on Monday morning. Monday was a holiday, in replacement for the Thaipusam public holiday which happened to be on Sunday. 

Our breakfast venue was the Restoran CY in Ipoh new town. None of us has been there before. It is a corner shop at 26-9, Jalan Theatre, Ipoh.
This place serves minced pork or pork slices noodles and soups.
This is my bowl of misua noodle (Chinese noodle made from wheat flour).
The ingredients are pork slices and bamboo fungus.
My friends ordered the minced pork with the noodle of their choice.
Cost per bowl = MYR 7 (approx. 1.64 USD)
We also ordered 4 pieces of Fried Dumplings (sui kow), no photo to show, lol!
Cost of Fried dumpling per piece = MYR 1.50 (approx. 0.35 USD)
The place is still new and clean.
 No problem with parking because it was a public holiday morning.
 Few shops from Restoran CY, we stopped to buy some Nyonya kuih (dessert).
Our friend loves Nyonya kueh and she bought some to try.
This place also sells "tong sui".
The kuih picture on the banner looks very tempting.
And remember,
when someone wants to do wrong it is never God who is tempting him,
for God never wants to do wrong and never tempts anyone else to do it.
(James 1:13, TLB)
