Stuffed White Bitter Melon & Angled Luffa Cooked With Prawns.

We are enjoying bright sunny days with rain in between and it seems to be the perfect weather for the plants in my garden.
My yellow hibiscus are blooming and the edible plants are fruiting as well.
That morning I harvested the above white bitter melon for dinner.
This time, I used the bitter melon to make stuffed bitter melon.
Ingredients for stuffing: fish paste, minced pork, chopped carrot and red chillies, spring onions, etc.
I also harvested the above angled luffa to make another dish.
I cooked the luffa with fresh prawns, carrot slices and eggs.
And I heated up the left over curry from the previous day.
The above were for that day's dinner.
Even without eating any rice, we couldn't finish the stuffed melon.
There were 3 pieces left over which I took for the next day lunch.

The following items are from the National Museum.
Antique potteries found at some burial sites in Perak.
Antique crude iron tools found at the burial sites.
The above artifacts such as axe, sickle, knife, spear head, etc. with handles made from wood or rattan were discovered at the sites of slab stone graves. Iron Age is believed to have existed in Malaysia circa early A.D. until the 17th century A.D., following the Bronze Age.
Traps used for catching fish.


For I am overwhelmed and desperate,

and you (God) along know which way I ought to turn

to miss the traps my enemies have set for me.

(Psalm 142:3, The Living Bible-TLB)
