Pork Belly Slices, Prawns And Home Grown Vegetables For Dinner

I was on my walking rounds at the park when I noticed this little white puppy following behind this elderly woman.
 It must have smelled something nice coming from the plastic bags carried by the elderly woman.
 Once the woman crossed over the drain, the puppy stopped following her. I didn't wait to see what happened after that and I continued on with my walk.
 Back home, I harvested the above from my little garden.
 I also spotted some cute white mushrooms growing in one of the pots. This is my first time seeing such mushrooms in my garden.
 In the early afternoon, some workers came to resurface a part of the road near our house.
 After the surface was compacted, they left.

I went to check the fridge and the freezer to see whatever foodstuff I need to clear and cook for dinner.
 I found a packet of frozen pork belly slices which was meant for steamboat or hot pot. I marinated the pork slices to cook pan fried garlic pork belly slices.
 I also pan fried 10 big prawns.
 I used the white bitter gourd and angled luffa from my garden to cook with garlic, ginger slices, dried prawns and egg.

The following items are from the National Museum.
 Antique ceramic containers.
 A Bellarmine (Rhenish Bartman Krug) Jar recovered from the NASSAU (Dutch East Indies) shipwreck during an underwater archaeological excavation off Bambeek Shoal, Straits of Malacca, Negeri Sembilan in 1993.


"Oh, son of mine, what can you be thinking of!

Child whom I bore! The son I dedicated to God!

Don't dissipate your virility on fortune-hunting women,

promiscuous women who shipwreck leaders.

(Proverbs 31:2-3, The Living Bible-TLB)

  15. Los perros tienen un gran olfato y esa señora puede llevar algo muy apetitoso en la bolsa.

    Lo que más me atrae del menú, son esas gambas fritas.
