Watercress Soup & Taro With Dried Shrimp For Dinner

It was a Monday morning and we went for our morning walk.
 Took a snapshot of this lovely sunrise at 6:55 am.
After our walk, we drove to the Main Post Office to send a letter. My old car refused to start and we had to call the mechanic. Since we had to wait for him, we walked over to the stalls next to the clock tower for breakfast.
 Clock Tower in Ipoh old town.
This clock tower looks good after a face lift.
 The clock is working, so the time was 9:00 am.
The mechanic managed to get the car started for us to get home after which it was sent to the workshop. That evening, we had a simple home cooked dinner.
 Our favourite dish - Taro cooked with dried shrimp.
 Soup - watercress boiled with pork ribs, carrot and red dates.
This was our dinner without rice.
One of my 4 Betta or Siamese fighting fishes.
 Indian bread or Roti Canai with spicy sambal.
This was our supper at our regular coffeeshop that evening after an early dinner.
 Gold fishes and water feature at an old folks nursing home.
 This inspired me to restart our gold fish project.
 I started out with 3 small gold fishes and now there are 5 in this mini pond.
Once they get accustomed to their new home, they will come to the water surface with their mouth open wide whenever I go near. Gold fishes have good appetite.

Linking to Saturday's Critters.

Haven't you yet learned that your body is the home

of the Holy Spirit God gave you, and that he lives within you?

Your own body does not belong to you.

  1. I love to eat taro. the taro is enough to replace rice so no need to eat rice. Gold fishes are not as hardy as guppies and need more care so we never have any. They look so pretty in your pond, you must be taking very good care of them.
