Hakka Noodle, Monk Fruit Sweet Drink & Steamed Waxed Duck

It rained yesterday night, 26th day MCO. I was watching a Chinese drama when suddenly there was lightning and loud thunder. The TV screen went blank and then back to normal again. I quickly switched off and unplugged both the TV and my computer. Life would be real boring without the TV and computer during this MCO.
 I managed to capture this sunrise at 7:06 am.
 This was at 7:20 am.
 7:25 am
 Last snapshot at 7:38 am

Sunday breakfast, 26th day MCO
Hubby went out to buy Hakka noodles. All food stalls are being strictly monitored. They can only start selling from 8:00 am sharp onward.

 Meat balls, fish balls and stuffed tofu.
 Breakfast for 2 people.

Monk fruit (loh han kuo) with chrysanthemum drink.
 1 dried monk fruit (loh han kuo) and chrysanthemum buds.
Rinsed and drained. Break up the monk fruit and boiled together with the chrysanthemum buds. The monk fruit drink has some natural sweetness.

Christ is our peace.

He made both Jews and Gentiles into one group.

With his body, he broke down the barrier of hatred that divided us.

(Ephesians 2:14, Common English Bible-CEB)

  7. You enjoy delicious food and drink and always so varied. I hope your electricity stays stable and it was just due to the storm. It was wise to unplug the television when there's a storm with lightning. All the best Nancy.

  8. Ya cannot live without tv and internet. It is raining right now in sg. Good that you use metal containers to dabao and takeaway. Plastic containers are bad for health and bad for environment. Today i saw two police officers making their rounds at our supermarket.

  11. Laa televisión y la música, es lo que ameniza el día, a falta de poder salir a la calle.

    Espero que tanto tú, como tu familia, se encuentren bien.

  22. I hopped over here to see what you blog from Mama's Mercantile. (We are blogger buddies+ Your site is nice and love the sunrise photos you posted. Easter sunrise was so pretty. We have been able to watch our church on Youtube which is good. Better than nothing. Usually we can hear it through church website if one misses church. I am enjoying the pretty tulips and other plants that are blooming. The tulip festival had to be cancelled which is sad. Thankfully they are posting many photos in FB. Wooden Shoe Tulip farm. We've gone there for years. Do you live in Japan? Take care and thanks for sharing scripture! Your food makes me hungry even though I have eaten breakfast! :,}

    1. Thank you for hopping over to my blog and taking time to enjoy and comment. There are things we get to enjoy even though no one likes to be house bound. We have 2 more weeks to go and not sure whether it will be extended further. I am staying in Malaysia. Have a lovely day and stay safe.
