Stewed Pork With Dried Lily Buds & Cloud Ear Fungus

It was raining from Sunday evening right up till the wee hours of Monday morning (62nd day MCO). When the rain stopped, I went out to take a look at the sky. Under Conditional MCO, many have gone back to work.
 Break of dawn at 6:42 am.
I had some minor upsets during this MCO.
#1 - I noticed my smartphone battery was bloated 1 day before MCO. Quickly sent to the phone shop but due to MCO, the workshop is closed. Waited for about 7 weeks for the shop to send my phone to the workshop and ordering of new battery. Until now my phone is still at the workshop waiting in queue. Thankful that a friend let me use her spare phone until my own phone is restored.
 Morning sky at 6:52
#2 - Sometime in April during MCO, my computer mouse started to have freezing problem. I have to unplug and plug to keep the mouse working as I do not have a spare mouse in the house. I called up the computer "doctor" and he said the problem could be a faulty mouse. I waited for the "DIY" stores to re-open for business to get a new mouse and thankful that the problem is now solved.
 Morning sky at 6:52
#3 - Saturday morning, my computer monitor started acting up. 1 minute it was working normal, and suddenly it went blank. I thought it was the power cable. After changing the power cable it went back to normal for a few hours. The same thing repeated on Sunday but I was able to listen to the online Sunday sermon. After I have published the day's blogpost, the monitor went blank again. I sent my computer and monitor to the "doctor" and my monitor was pronounced dead. After a few hours, I got back my computer with a brand new monitor and thankful that everything is back to normal again.
 Gloomy sky at 7:00 am and for the whole day.

On our way back from the walking exercise, we stopped at Restoran Zui Le Xuan Dim Sum to buy the following items for breakfast.
Steamed glutinous rice with chicken or "Loh Mai Kai"
Dumplings
I wanted "siew mai" and "har gao"
Taro puff with bbq pork filling or "woo kok".
 Breakfast for 2 people.
Green tea for hubby and nescafe for me.
 Time to cut these 2 mangoes.
 These mangoes for our mid morning snacks
 The mango is sweet with a slight sour taste making it very delicious.
~~~~~
Late Lunch
 Around 3:00 pm, hubby went out to buy lunch and he came back with a packet of roast pork and "siew cheong" rice. I taxed 3 spoonful and hubby ate the rest.

Home Cooked Dinner
Stewed pork belly with dried lily buds (kam cham in Cantonese) and black cloud fungus (wan yee in Cantonese).
Stir fried Chinese chive flower buds (kau choy fah) with extra firm tofu slices and chopped garlic.
 Dinner for 2 people.
I kept some of the stewed pork dish for next day's dinner.
 While I was cooking in the kitchen, a friend drop by to give us these mangoes from his garden. These mangoes will need to keep for a few days for them to ripen. 
These 2 mangoes which I bought from the supermarket are now ripe enough to be eaten.
Love these sweet and juicy mangoes.
An old antique motorbike found at the Gopeng Gaharu Tea Valley.


He placed springs in the valleys

and streams that gush from the mountains.

They give water for all the animals to drink.

There the wild donkeys quench their thirst,

and the birds nest beside the streams

and sing among the branches of the trees.

(Psalm 104:10-12, The Living Bible-TLB)

  6. ...I did a search for Miele motorcycle the company was founded in 1899 by Carl Miele and Reinhard Zinkmann, the German company manufactured milk-centrifuges and other dairy equipment. From 1911 bicycles were manufactured and automobiles were built for the military during World War I. Interesting, thanks Nancy for sharing, take care.

  14. We never had mangoes when I was growing up and I'm never quite sure how to tell when they're ripe or how to get out most of the fruit.
