Stewed Duck With Bitter Melon & Steamed Baby Taro

We woke up early to a lovely dry morning and was looking forward to our morning walk. 
Morning sky at 6:55 am.
After our walk, we went to town for breakfast.
I took this photo while we were waiting at the traffic light.
One of the new buildings in town - The Octagon.
In lower building in front with the palm trees is the police quarters.
Someone wanted to buy this rubber hammer. This is usually used by fish monger to hammer the chopper when they need to cut up the big fishes especially their heads. I too bought one to use in my kitchen. I used this to hammer the chopper to cut the frozen duck into 4 pieces without having to unfreeze the duck.
Stewed duck with white bitter gourd or melon.
Ingredients used: ginger slices, duck, bitter gourd, salted black beans, salted soya beans, etc. I used a quarter of the duck to cook this dish and kept the other 3 quarters back into the freezer. 
Steamed small taro or baby yam bought from the supermarket. Drizzled with garlic oil, scallop sauce and light soy sauce, and home grown spring onion.
These were our dinner eaten with some rice for 2 people.

The following photos were taken at the National Museum.

Old clay containers dug out from the site.
I missed taking a snapshot of the detailed information about the above 2 photos. 
Purple and Pink Wishbone Flowers from my garden.
