Winter Melon & Aloe Vera Sweet Drink And Home Cooked Dinner

On Sunday morning, we walked to our regular coffee shop. Hubby had a cup of unsweetened black coffee and I had a bowl of herbal tea with a hard boiled egg. After that, we walked back home.
  Later in the morning, I warmed the steamed buns for hubby's brunch.
And I had cream crackers with home made pineapple jam.

Lunch
A friend gave me a winter melon the size of a football. I used half of it to boil sweet drink or tong kwa tong sui.
 Ingredients: winter melon, aloe vera, dried longan and cane sugar.
 This sweet drink or tong sui tastes better when it is chilled.

Dinner
Initially, I planned to steamed rice but last minute, hubby wanted noodle.
Fried threadfins fish or ikan senangin with ginger strips.
Since the fish was thawed, I went ahead to fried the fish even though we didn't intend to have rice for dinner.
 I reheated the leftover stewed pork belly
 Instead of steamed rice, I blanched napa cabbage and cooked dried Cintan noodle.
 We ate the noodle with leftover stewed pork belly and the fried fish.
 Simple home cooked dinner for 2 people.
 Setting sun at 6:50 pm.
Evening sky at 7 pm.
According to the weather forecast, it would rain in the evening but there was no rain.

Farmers who wait for perfect weather never plant.

If they watch every cloud, they never harvest.

(Ecclesiastes 11:4, New Living Translation-NLT)

    1. Must remove all the green skin and rinse off the yellowish sap before using for cooking.

  12. The tong sui looks so delicious! Your morning breakfast - is it hard boiled egg in the sweet herbal tea? Or are they sold separately?

    1. Hard boiled eggs are sold separately. I don't usually take herbal tea with the egg. This is one of the days when I feel like eating the hard boiled eggs.
