Sunday Dinner At Restoran Peng Yew, Lawan Kuda.

This time round, it was our turn to invite our friends for out a dinner. We agreed on a Sunday dinner in Lawan Kuda, Gopeng. Again we went in our friends' car. We started around 6 pm, on the way picked up a friend and reached Lawan Kuda around 7 pm. We went to a place which our friends have not been to - Restoran Peng Yew. As it was Chap Goh Meh eve, the place was crowded. Hubby had called up earlier so that was a table for us.
Restaurants in Lawan Kuda is famous for their Snakehead fish dishes.
Usually it is 1 fish 2 dishes. Fleshy part 1 dish and the rest cooked in soup.
We ordered the Herbal Wine soup.
Boneless fish slices cooked with ginger slices and spring onions.
Stir fried baby french beans with garlic.

Clay pot tofu, with Chinese cabbage, prawns, sweet peas, carrot, etc.
Another clay pot dish - "hum yue fah lam" meaning Salted Fish Pork Belly.
That night we waited for almost 45 minutes for our dinner.
After all the festive celebration dinners, we have to be disciplined in our walking exercise. And that morning, these doggies were also there joining the walk.

Returning home from our walk, we were greeted by this pigeon on my neighbour's room.
I thought it will fly away when I aimed to take a snapshot but it didn't.
 Beautiful greetings from my garden blooms - Lovely Pink Petunias.
 Delicate and succulent - Dainty Pink Begonia blooms. 
 A pot of Slipper Plant or Candelilla. Scientific name: Euphorbia Bracteata.
This is not from my garden. I took this photo at a car tire shop.
The plant is heavy with drooping flowers.


Anxious hearts are very heavy,

but a word of encouragement does wonders!

(Proverbs 12:25, TLB)

  23. I love those flowers!

    I have never had snakehead dishes, I used to work in a pet shop when I was in junior H.S. and we had them for people to keep as pets.

  34. Eh those are petunias? I've got some of those but they grow on the ground. For some reason they are happy growing in the cracks between the tiles. When I transplant to a cushy flower bed, they don't do so well.
