Our Breakfast & War With Green Critters.

We were looking forward to have our breakfast in town but we reached to find the place closed. So we opted for breakfast at another nearby place and that is Restoran Tet Shin at Jalan Yau Tet Shin, Ipoh. There is ample parking space before 8 am. This eatery is usually packed around this time.
 Savoury Chicken Glutinous rice (loh mai kai) for me. I like the soft glutinous rice.
 Hubby tried this Mee Jawa from a new stall.
 And a few pieces of Fried Goodies as add-on. This breakfast will last us till dinner. For lunch, we usually take some fruits.

The following photos are for joining Saturday's Critters.
I found these green and black little things on the cement floor near my gate, Initially, I was very puzzled.
I looked further up and  saw this little green critter. Then, I realized that those things on the cement floor were droppings left behind by these culprits. There were more droppings on the brick as well. 
These green culprits or caterpillars fed on my Periwinkle plant till almost bald!
Let us have some fun here. How many green critters can you find on my Periwinkle plant? After taking these snapshots, I cut off the branches with the critters on them and transfer them to some wild bushes by the roadside and hopefully, they will turn into beautiful butterflies one day.
Do not underestimate this little green caterpillar. Just this little one can finish off the leaves from my Periwinkle plant in a short time!

Linking to Saturday's Critters.

They had almost finished me off, yet I refused to yield

and disobey your laws. In your kindness,

spare my life; then I can continue to obey you.

  1. It's a shame that the caterpillars feasted on your periwinkle plant...but you were so merciful to still hope that they will turn into beautiful butterflies. They too need to eat to survive and hopefully the periwinkle plant will recover in no time at all...sometimes pruning makes a plant grow stronger and bushier;P ...
    Looking at your loh mai kai gave me an inspiration to incorporate that into our menu for next week:)
    Happy weekend Nancy!

  12. Fun fun fun!! Now, lets' see. I see three. I am sure there are more, they are so well camouflaged!! They are large too. You have such a good heart to save them! I bet many people would kill them. Especially after seeing their destroyed plants! The molded rice dish looks so good! Here, there is nothing glutinous, so I have never tasted any of these dishes.

  13. Oh no, your plant is looking quite sad all cut back but in the end it might have done it a lot of good. I do not think they will turn into butterflies they look more like the caterpillar of the Oleander Hawk-moth. Still very pretty though. Diane
