Ngau Lam Fun (Beef Soup Noodles) And Home Cooked Dinner

I woke up this morning at about 4.30 am and it was raining heavily outside. No morning walk for us but on the good side, the rain helped to water my plants.
Took this sunrise snapshot a few days ago.
We haven't eaten Ngau Lam Fun (beef soup noodles) for some time and the cool weather gives me good appetite and was thinking of beef noodles.
This was our breakfast for hubby and I.
I ordered 2 bowls of hor fun or flat rice noodle in soup.
Ngau Lam soup with white radish.
A bowl of assorted ingredients e.g. fish cake, beef balls, etc.
One of the regular visitors to the park.
It looks like it was smiling or saying "cheese" for my camera.

The following was my simple home cooked dinner.
Left over pork rib curry served over some blanched okra harvested from my garden.
I bought a small sized taro or yam from the road side stall at the park and used it to cook with dried prawns. It looks plain because I didn't use any dark sauce.
*     *     *     *     *
The following snapshots were taken in my garden.
As I bent down to pull out some weeds I noticed this insect clinging to the pumpkin vine.
I was thinking that this was a funny looking insect and it was then I realized that it was a dead insect with just its outer shell and it was hollow.
It must have been dead for a long time and I didn't even notice it was there.

Linking to Saturday's Critters.

Just as the body is dead when there is no spirit in it,

so faith is dead if it is not the kind that results in good deeds.

  8. Soup is always good when it's rainy outside. Looks so good and so does your dinner. We eat at home most of the time. We tend to eat out when we're boating.

    Have a fabulous day and weekend, Nancy. ♥

    3. Yes, it is true. Maybe some experts can tell which insect by the look of the skin. I don't even know the names of most of the insects found in my garden.

  17. Beautiful capture of the sunrise. That insect is the shell of part of the life cycle of a locust.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Well, I went to find photos to support my claim that the insect shell is a locust, but come to find out it is a cicado...but everyone I know calls them locusts...both in Indiana where I live now and in Tennessee where I grew up. You can scroll and see photos here. Around here they only emerge every so many years. And when they do, they call is constant and so annoying. You just would not believe.

    1. Thank you, Rose for the link. Yes, from the pictures, I can recognize the insect called locust. And I know its call which can be loud and annoying.
