Floating Cotton Clouds & Lunch in Kanthan.

Today, I am joining Skywatch Friday and I want to share these floating cotton clouds in the sky in this post. These photos were taken at the end of last year. Currently, we are going through a heatwave and the sky are dull with some white clouds. The temperature is about an average of 35 deg.C. For the last few days we have been staying indoors with the fans in full blast and sleeping with the air conditioner on until morning.
These photos were taken on the Ipoh Penang highway.
The time was about 12 midday.
I think we were on one of our foodie trip somewhere in Chemor.
The clouds look like fluffy cotton floating so low.
When you concentrate on the clouds, they looked like little critters in a row.
Lovely white clouds against the blue sky.
The clouds have started to merge together.
Waiting at a traffic light.
Last Monday, we were once again in Kanthan to enjoy some of the Hakka delicacies. Notice the sky was so different from the above ones. The hot days have begun.
Being a second time visitors, we knew what we wanted.
We ordered some fried stuffed goodies.
2 stuffed tofu and 2 sui kau, cut for sharing.
The same plate taken from another angle for a better view.
A stuffed bitter gourd and stuffed eggplant.
A fish ball and 2 dumplings (siew mai), cut for sharing.
A plate of chee cheong fun with long beans, porkie skin and curry gravy.
Hakka vegetarian dumplings. We ordered 4 different flavours, cut for sharing.
Today, I am also joining Today's Flowers. Photos from my garden.
Pink and white Wishbone flower or Torenia.
Purple and blue Wishbone flower or Torenia.
Baby blue Plumbago flowers. Due to the strong sunlight the colour is much lighter now.
Tiny pink florets from Crown of Thorns.


Then Pilate laid open Jesus' back with a leaded whip,

and the soldiers made a crown of thorns and

placed it on his head and robed him in royal purple.

"Hail, 'King of the Jews'!" they mocked,

and struck him with their fists.

Pilate went outside again and said to the Jews,

"I am going to bring him out to you now,

but understand clearly that I find him not guilty."

Then Jesus came out wearing the crown of thorns

and the purple robe. And Pilate said,

"Behold the man!"

(John 19:1-5, TLB)

  12. I can see critters floating upside down in your fluffy cotton clouds. So much
    fun watching clouds formations. The food looks very tasty. I probably wouldn't eat the pork skin but everything else looks yummy.
    Beautiful blossoms on your healthy plants.
    Hugs,

    1. Stacy, after a while they will dry up but after that many will grow from the fallen seeds. My garden is now filled with these plants.
