Flaky Curry Puffs, Assam Laksa & Hakka Braised Pork Belly

When it rains, it is nice and cool but when it doesn't rain, its warm and sweaty. We are finishing 8 weeks of MCO. We have 4 more weeks of Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) to follow until 9th June. Many have returned to work but life is not yet back to normal. We still have to observe social distancing, no meeting up with friends and no dining in restaurants. No shopping except for essentials.
Sunrise at 7:18 am.

From my garden.
Fragrant Gardenia.
Life cycle: New bud on the top, creamy white on the right and beige on the left.
Orange Firecracker flowers.
~~~~~
Breakfast
Reheated the 2 flaky curry puffs in the oven for breakfast.
~~~~~
Lunch
Free Assam Laksa from a friend.
Hubby and I shared this bowl of assam laksa.
Bought 2 pieces of thick peanut pancake.
Hubby and I ate one each.
I harvested the first 2 snake beans from the new plants.
~~~~~
I snapped myself out of lazy mode. I opened the fridge and did a stock check to see which items I need to clear. I took out the walnuts to roast in the oven to make healthy snack but I didn't like it. So together with the roasted peanuts, I made peanut walnut butter to spread on bread or cream crackers.
Creamy Peanut Walnut Butter
 (with a little bit of salt, brown sugar and honey)
The bulk produces 3 and 1/2 tubs.
~~~~~
Dinner
Home cooked Hakka braised pork belly with wood fungus.
Steamed cauliflower and carrot drizzled with garlic oil and soy sauce.
Dinner for 2 people
It was raining cats and dogs while we were having dinner.
Ceramic vase found at the Gopeng Gaharu Tea Valley.
A snapshot of my Bauhiana Kockiana. The branches laden with flowers are hanging over to my neighbour's side. Once the flowers wilt and dropped off, I will trim off the branches

The heartfelt counsel of a friend
is as sweet as perfume and incense.
Never abandon a friend - either yours or your father's.
When disaster strikes,
you won't have to ask your brother for assistance.
It's better to go to a neighbor than to a brother who lives far away.
(Proverbs 27:9-10, New Living Translation-NLT)

  23. I can't believe I miss your this post when I read your blog everyday. Was the roasted walnuts taste off (Hong)? Was that why you didn't like the roasted Walnut taste? Very good idea to make peanut Walnut spread. Sedap!

    1. The walnut is not "hong". Its because it taste dry and not to my taste. So I had an idea to mix with peanut to make peanut walnut butter which I like.

  24. I tried making peanut butter before but didn't quite like the bland taste - guess need to add more salt/sugar. Also didn't like the oil floating on top.
