Roast Turmeric Chicken & Bitter Melon With Salted Black Beans

On this particular morning I didn't have to water the plants because it rained heavily the night before. I only have to water the few pots that are placed under the shelter away from the rain. I have plenty of time to do some weeding and trimming of the plants.
 One of my yam or taro plants in a pot.
The small plants you see growing in the pots are the Plantago Major (herbal plant) or the "Teen Koon Choe" which is good for cleansing the urinary tract and bladder. Due to the wet season, the plants are sprouting all over the pots.
 Rain water collected in a taro or yam leaf.
 Chive flowers
 I adopted this Adenium plant from an ex-colleague. It was cut bald when it was given to me. A friend gave me the 2 Adenium babies. I have to keep reminding myself not to over water the Adenium plants.
So far, so good. Looks like my adopted Adenium plants are adapting well to my garden and my care.
 This Begonia plants will appear during the wet season.
They grow wild in between the pots and some sprouting out from the soil in the pots. 
 Recently, I harvested some Turmeric ginger from my garden.
 I used some of the home grown Turmeric to roast 2 chicken legs. Ingredients: fresh turmeric ginger, shallots, garlic, salt, pepper & some oyster sauce.
 I also used a home grown white bitter gourd or bitter melon to cook the above dish. Ingredients: salted black beans, dried prawns, garlic, dried bird's eye chilies since I don't have fresh red chilies.

I snapshot the following image at the National Museum.
 The necklace made of brotia costula and brotia spinosa shell was found in the Gua Harimau or Tiger Cave in Lenggong, in the state of Perak, Malaysia.


But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward

to a new heaven and a new earth, where righteousness dwells.

So then, dear friends, since you are looking forward to this,

make every effort to be found spotless,

blameless and at peace with him.

(Hebrews 4:13-14, New International Version-NIV)
