Simple Steamed Chocolate Cake & Roast Chicken Leg

Woke up to find that it was raining in the early hours of the morning. No lovely sunrise, only gray sky.
Morning sky at 7:05 am - no sunrise in sight.
On the opposite side, Kledang Hill covered with mist.
Opposite my house, gray sky.
Breakfast on Monday, 20th day MCO.
My breakfast
Pan fried 2 sausages, 3 pieces of bacon, 1 egg and 2 pieces of bread.
 I passed over 1 sausage and 1 piece of bacon to hubby.
Hubby went out to buy "wat tan hor" or flat rice noodle with egg gravy.
Breakfast for 2.
From my garden.
The early morning rain helped to water my plants.
Can you see the rain droplets on my periwinkles?
Sea hibiscus flower bud and leaves with rain droplets.
I boiled sweet porridge with red beans and black glutinous rice.
I blessed my neighbours (2 young ladies) with some.
Homemade steamed chocolate cake.
Rose World's post gave me the inspiration to try her recipe (click here).
I also gave some to my neighbours together with the sweet porridge.
Homemade roast chicken legs with vegetables
(potatoes, carrot, onions and cauliflowers)
2 bowls of mushroom soup.
Very satisfying and delicious dinner.
Items from the National Museum.
Royal Headdress
Tengkolok Diraja or Royal Headdress
Tengkolok DiRaja / Royal Headdress
The royal headdress has been an integral part of the royal regalia of the Malay Rulers over the centuries. The royal headdress worn by His Majesty the Yang DiPertuan Agong is black in colour with gold embroidery and its solek is called the 'Dendam Tak Sudah' originated from Negeri Sembilan. On the front of the headdress is affixed with a crescent and a star in white gold within which is the national emblem of Malaysia.

But you are not like that, for you are a chosen people.
You are royal priests, a holy nation, God's very own possesion.
As a result, you can show others the goodness of God,
for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light.
(1 Peter 2:9, New Living Translation-NLT)


  1. Your food during the stay home period is so tasty! I can say the food is better than when you are eating out.

    1. Thank you, Mun. Staying home means more time to think of what to cook.

  2. Your steamed chocolate cake looked more moist than mine.

    All the food looked yummy.

    1. Thank you, Rose. It is moist and nice but I think I can reduce a bit more water.

  3. I really even like that first grat sky a lot...the chocolate cake looks delicious.

  4. Delicious! My mouth is watering because it is no cakes or chocolate eggs for me - I am on a diet :) Impressive headdresses, certainly a great experience to see.

  5. It is wonderful that you are sharing with neighbors, and i always enjoy seeing your flowers.

  6. ...a headdress has always been a sign of honor and power. Thanks Nancy for sharing these museum treasures, take care!

  7. Lots of yummy treats, Nancy. The chicken looks particularly delicious and juicy.

  8. Interesting head apparel for Malay royalty. The Hawaiian kings used bird feathers to adorn their heads.

    1. It would be interesting to see the headdress of the Hawaiian kings.

  9. I prefer your breakfast, so satisfying! Can i have those roast chicken please..

  10. I see you're doing what needs to be done during this difficult time. Good for you.

  16. the roasted chicken leg and mushroom soup is so appetizing...

  17. Delicious home made meals Nancy. Rain is good for your plants. It gives them a drink and freshens them up. Interesting royal headgear in the museum. The scripture blessed me today. Thank you.

  18. Very delicious looking roast chicken!

  19. Leg quarters are my favorite part of the chicken! They have this tender meat yet very juicy on the inside. I would have to look for a recipe of that steamed chocolate cake though.
