Chicken Curry Noodle, Fried Chicken Drumsticks, Watercress Soup & Steamed Eggs

Yesterday was 41st day MCO. During this rainy season, there was no spectacular sunrise to catch.
Morning sky at 7:04 am.
Sunrise at 7:07 am.
Sunrise at 7:10 am.
I wanted to catch the birds flying in V-shape but only managed to get this image.
Sunrise at 7:15 am.
Sunrise at 7:26 am.
After this snapshot, I went into my house to prepare breakfast.
Noodle with chicken potato curry.
I reheated a portion of previously cooked chicken curry. I blanched some home grown veggie (baby pak choy), cut some home grown limes and cooked dried Cintan noodle to make breakfast.
Delicious breakfast for 2 people.
~~~~~
This is the first time I made a trip to the nearest wet market since MCO started. I decided to go a bit late to avoid the long queue to buy 2 free range chickens.
I bought 2 taros (yams) and a papaya from the wet market. I bought the potatoes and lotus root from the local mini market.
I bought a packet of beansprouts, 2 types of green vegetables and watercress. I used the watercress to make soup that evening.
Dry noodles and a packet of glutinous rice.
I haven't decided what I want to do with the glutinous rice.
The things I brought back from my trip to the wet market and mini market.
Only the 2 free range chickens were not shown in the photo.

Lunch
Hubby went out to buy lunch from the nearby Indian stall. Deep fried spicy chicken drumsticks, salted egg and rice. We were disappointed because there was no more curry gravy.
~~~~~
Home cooked dinner
Soup: watercress, carrot, pork ribs, red dates and wolfberries.
Steamed eggs
Ingredients: 3 types of eggs (2 chicken eggs lightly beaten, 1 salted egg, 1 century egg), water, a pinch of salt, pepper. To get the smooth silky texture, make sure not to over steam or over cook the egg. While still hot, sprinkle chopped spring onions and drizzled with garlic oil and soy sauce.
From the above image, you can see the 3 different types of eggs. 
Simple home cooked dinner on a cool wet evening.

From our trip to the Gaharu Tea Valley, Gopeng in September, 2019.
With our friends from far and near.
On display was this beautiful teapot.
It was placed in the center of the room.
I don't have any information about this kettle such as its maker.


Come, kneel before the Lord our Maker, for he is our God.
We are his sheep, and he is our Shepherd.
Oh, that you would hear him calling you today and come to him!
(Psalm 95:6-7, The Living Bible-TLB)

  3. That's a good variety you got from the wet market. Is this within a building? The one in my area isn't allowed to operate as it's open air.

    1. Its a fenced up wet market with roof, without walls. People have to queue up to enter the wet market. Police are stationed there to monitor and keep order.

  4. You bought a nice variety of vegetables from the market. I immediately think of yam cake when I saw the taros! I enjoy watercress soup. I will try to get my partner to buy this weekend.

  5. Love your home cooked breakfast and dinner! No more curry gravy for lunch!? I thought that would never happen as curry is like the main attraction. I wanted to ask about the wet market but Stacy beat me to it. Guess we think alike. That's quite a lot of things u bought. Did you leave the raw chicken from the wet market inside your car while you went into the mini market?

    1. The raw chickens (freshly slaughtered) were only for a short while in the car when I went into the mini market to quickly buy whatever I needed.

  6. You can make Bak Chang with the glutinous rice. It will make the family happy.

    I have not eaten watercress soup for ages! Time to cook them soon.

    I am amazed to see this pretty and unique teapot. It looks Russian or European designed on certain parts but it could be made in China.

  10. Will you cooked yam rice with the yam bought? Twilight man will like that antique teapot.

    I only tried two types of egg before, normal egg with salted egg without the century egg.

    The steamed egg and watercress soup make such satisfying meal.
