Good Friday Stay Home, 24th Day MCO

First time the church was close on Good Friday, 24th day MCO. We had to stay home and followed the pre-recorded service online via Youtube, at any time convenient to us. In the afternoon, our PM announced that the MCO has been further extended another 2 weeks to 28th April, 2020.
 Sunrise at 7:05 am, Thursday morning, 23rd day MCO.
On the opposite side, I managed to capture the Pink Moon at 7:05 am, above the Kledang Hill.
Sunrise at 7:33 am. 
 Red okra plant from my garden.
Very soon, I will be able to harvest red okras from these plants.
~~~~~
Breakfast
 Homemade noodle with stewed duck and blanched lettuce.
The stewed duck was the 2nd portion from the previous evening.
~~~~~
Lunch 
 Since we will not be holding small groups meeting in our home, I took out the prawn crackers to fry for lunch and snack.
 Chilled peach gum sweet drink (tong sui) from the previous day.
 We had the above for lunch.
~~~~~
Dinner
 A packet of Sichuan preserved vegetable, soaked and chopped coarsely before mixing with a packet of minced pork.
 Steamed minced pork with Sichuan preserved vegetable.
Mixed vegetable
(cauliflower, carrot, fish paste, oyster mushrooms)
 Dinner for 2 people.
~~~~~
From my garden
 A big grasshopper clinging to my okra plant.
 It didn't fly away even when I reached out to cut the okra from the plant.
Lovely crimson red Ixora blooms.

Linking to Saturday's Critters.

Who is this who comes from Edom, from the city of Bozrah,

with his clothing stained red?

Who is this in royal robes, marching in his great strength?

"It is I, the LORD, announcing your salvation!

It is I, the LORD, who has the power to save!"

(Isaiah 63:1, New Living Translation-NLT)

  8. I have yet to come across red okra anywhere here. That grasshopper is so big! I think there must be one in my garden too because I notice my plants have been chewed.

  9. Nancy, we do have an okra plant here at our garden but I have never seen a Red Okra fruit. Please share it with us once it bears fruits :) Those leaves look ornamental, I love the colors! But that grasshopper made me flinch, I'm scared of them. Happy Easter Nancy!

  11. An impressive morning sky!
    (I collect sky views in the 'Galeria Sky View')
    Does the grasshopper belong to the species that eat whole fields empty?
    That would be a shame, I think it's beautiful!
    Happy Easter!

    1. The special occasions which is a must to participate are now not allowed because of MCO. For our safety and health, everyone has to follow and not participate.

  16. Pretty skies and plants, and such good meals! It is different that all of our church is online now, i am sad and i miss people, but i am happy we have what we have, good pastors who try to stay in touch and make sure we are still able to feel their love and the love of others in the congregation.
