Lunch At Restoran J.J. Fatt, Lawan Kuda, Gopeng

I woke up at about 2 am in the morning. Went to the washroom and then went back to sleep. Woke up again at about 3:30 am and was wide awake. Switched on the computer, read the emails and prepared the day's blog post.

Hubby got up at about 5:45 am and by 6:10 am, we started out on our early morning walk. We walked to the park, did 2 rounds of walking at the park, and then we walked to our regular coffee shop. We had our cup of coffee, chit chatted with our friend and then walked back home.
 Reached home at about 7:30 am.
~~~~~
Breakfast at home
I warmed up the remaining yam rice from the previous day's dinner.
 The yam rice tasted just as good as the previous day.
 I added lime juice to the sambal belacan.
Yam rice + sambal belacan = super delicious breakfast.
 These colourful blooms are from the same hibiscus bougainvillea plant.
 Cloudy sky at 9:05 am

Lunch with friends at Restoran J.J. Fatt, Lawan Kuda, Gopeng.
This is our first lunch outside of Ipoh since MCO was implemented.
 Stir fried paku pakis (fern) with sambal belacan.
 Fish slices (san yu or snakehead fish) with ginger slices and spring onions.
 After the meaty part has been removed, the rest of the fish used for boiling soup with wine added.
 Fresh oyster and egg omelette.
We ordered 1 plate of white rice to be shared by 2 people.
No rice for me and another friend.
~~~~~
After lunch, we drove over to Kedai Kopi Gemuk in Kopisan, a short distance from where we had lunch.
 2 cups of unsweetened coffee, 2 glasses of chilled barley + lemon drink and steamed glutinous rice with kaya (coconut jam).
~~~~~
After lunch, we went shopping at Parkson, Ipoh Parade. When we reached home, I was tired and sleepy. Took a nap till about 7 pm. Woke up to prepare dinner.
The day before, a friend gave us 2 garlic bread and
 a roast chicken (ayam golek Mak Kiah)
 The garlic bread smelled so good even after being in the fridge.
 I couldn't resist. Took a piece to eat.
Cream was applied in between the cut bread. 
 The chicken was cut into 2 parts before re-heating in the oven.
Hubby and I ate the 2 chicken legs and 2 wings.
The rest of the chicken meat was shredded and kept in the fridge for future use.


We are all parts of one body, we have the same Spirit,
and we have all been called to the same glorious future.
For us there is only one Lord, one faith, one baptism,
and we all have the same God and Father who is over us all
and in us all, and living through every part of us.
(Ephesians 4:4-6, The Living Bible-TLB)
