Glutinous Rice Dumplings & ABC Soup

The weather seems to be getting warmer. Yesterday morning, 51st day MCO, I woke up early and did about 30 minutes walking exercise in front of my PC. After I have finished exercising, I went out to check the sky. It was still dark outside.
 Morning sky at 6:42 am.
The sky behind the opposite row of houses was lighted up at 6:55 am.
 Sunrise at 6:57 am.
 6;59 am.
~~~~~
Breakfast
 I took out 2 glutinous rice dumplings (bak chang) from the fridge to steam for breakfast. I have 2 more bak chang in the freezer.
 I don't mind eating bak chang once or twice a week if the bak chang is as tasty as this one.
 It would have been perfect if it has Chinese chestnut in it.
~~~~~
Lunch
We were supposed to have only ABC soup for lunch but our friend ordered an extra packet of chicken rice for us. Hubby went to collect from her stall.
 Indonesian chicken rice from our friend.
The chicken rice is very flavourful and tasty, consisting of flavoured rice, fried potatoes and prawns, fried chicken, blanched long beans, half a boiled eye, cucumber slices and onion crisps.
Home cooked ABC soup without tomatoes.
I have to throw the tomatoes away because they had gone bad.
 Lunch for 2 people
The cut Chinese cruller was from the previous day's lunch.
I soaked the cruller pieces in my bowl of soup.
Sweet and healthy snack. 
A friend sent this box of fruit called "chempedak".
(belongs to the family of jackfruit)
Home grown vegetables from my garden.
Red okra, dwarf long beans and 2 purple/black eggplants.
I cooked all the red okras and long beans.
When cooked, the red okras turned to pale green colour.
I kept the purple/black eggplants back in the fridge.
The same ABC soup that I cooked for lunch and dinner.
Condiment: Spicy bird's eye chilies in soy sauce. 
 No rice dinner for 2 people.
Sweet papaya for dessert.
Found this small mushroom colony growing in my garden.


Let your roots grow down into him and draw up nourishment from him.
See that you go on growing in the Lord,
and become strong and vigorous in the truth you were taught.
Let your lives overflow with joy and thanksgiving for all he has done.
(Colossians 2:7, The Living Bible-TLB)

  5. I am unfamiliar with a lot of food that you are experiencing. I used to be quite fussy about eating food when I was a child. Now, I am more curious and am wondering what these dishes would taste like good, bad or indifferent. Looks all yummy to me from here. Be safe.

    1. I like to taste different types of food. If I don't taste I will never know whether they taste good or not. Happy weekend.

  6. One of the things I really love about following you Nancy is that I get to see how similar our cultures are, whether it's the Malay culture that the Philippines also have or the Chinese influence that both our countries share. The Bak chang is something we also have here and we call it Ma Chang :) That's something my grandpa loves so much!

  14. I like bak chang with light coloured glutinous rice - not so much of soy sauce used when preparing the rice. Your friend is so nice. How long does it take to drive to her stall?

  15. I like to eat fresh chempedak and also deep fried chempedak. Your homegrown vegetables are so yummy to act as rice to eat together with your ABC soup. Did the tomatoes go bad in the fridge?

  25. Yeah weather has been mostly too warm during MCO. And we can't go to malls to walk comfortably with aircon!

    The bakchang looks good with the beans inside.
