Hyacinth Bean Soup (Pang Pei Dau), Home Cooked

Today is 8th day MCO. Today is bright and sunny. I woke up too late to catch the sunrise this morning. I was up early yesterday morning but there was no spectacular sunrise, just grey sky. 
Morning sky @ 7:25 am - 7th day MCO
*     *     *     *     *
For my convenience, I boiled soup enough for 2 meals i.e. lunch and dinner.
 Hyacinth bean soup (pang pei dau) with carrot, red dates, and pork.
 For lunch, I steamed multi grain rice for hubby alone.
 Hubby's simple lunch. 
 The kacang putih or snack factory was closed, so hubby bought a small packet of crunchy broad beans from the grocery store.
Snack time for hubby: crunchy broad beans & a can of 100 Plus isotonic drink.

What we had for dinner that evening.
 I harvested 1 big and 1 smaller angled loofah and some long beans from my garden. I used them to cooked with dried prawns and an egg.
 2 big bowls of hyacinth beans soup
Thank God for this simple dinner for 2 people.
Happy to see red ixora flowers from my garden again.


Dear brothers, is your life full of difficulties and temptations?

Then be happy, for when the way is rough,

your patience has a chance to grow.

So let it grow, and don't try to squirm out of your problems.

For when your patience is finally in full bloom,

then you will be ready for anything,

strong in character, full and complete.

(James 1:2-4, The Living Bible-TLB)

  2. I have never cooked so much in my life LOL! It makes sense to cook two meals in one go. Saves time. Looks like we have to endure many more days at home until 14-04-2020.

    1. I bought the hyacinth beans at the park before MCO. Not too much because there is very little meat, just soup and veg.
