Steamed Pork Ribs & Pumpkin With Dried Prawns


It was raining when we woke up yesterday morning. The rain had not stopped since it started the previous evening. We are now in the midst of the wet season and in a way it provide a temporary relief from the hot and humid weather.
Morning sky at 8:55 am.
I waited for the rain to stopped before I swept the dried leaves and flowers that have fallen on the driveway.
I like to take snapshots of my flowers after the rain.
~~~~~
My neighbour gave me half a winter melon, so I used it to make sweet drink or tong sui.
For the sweet drink or tong sui, I used winter melon, flesh of aloe vera leaves, dried longan, honey dates (mutt choe) and cane sugar. We had this for lunch.

Home cooked dinner
Steamed Pork Ribs
Ingredients: pork ribs, salted preserved black beans, chopped garlic, bird's eye chilies, 2 pickled sour plums, sugar and cornflour.
Pumpkin with dried prawns and garlic - I love this dish.
Once cooked, add in the spring onions, stirred and off the fire.
Rice porridge + steamed pork ribs + pumpkin for our dinner.
Dancing Ladies orchid from my garden.

Have a Blessed Sunday !

Praise him with the trumpet and with lute and harp.
Praise him with the drums and dancing.
Praise him with stringed instruments and horns.
Praise him with the cymbals, yes, loud clanging cymbals.
Let everything alive give praises to the Lord!
You praise him! Hallelujah!

  5. Your yellow orchid is so pretty. I heard that one must not water them too much. Is that right? Cos my spouse wanted to plant orchids and he tried once but they died.

    1. Yes, the leaves will turn yellow, drop off and slowly the plant will die if there is too much watering.

  6. Winter melons I usually drink for savoury soup. A very long time ago, I remember my mother use the whole winter melon to boil tong sui with the tong sui inside the melon. Do you prefer winter melon as tong sui or savoury soup?

    1. I like both, as soup and tong sui. I have made soup inside a winter melon just like you mom did.

  7. Your dinner is always the most luxurious meal of the day. The pumpkin dish is so tasty with the dried shrimp and the pork ribs are so flavourful with the sour plums. What time did you eat this dinner? If at 6pm, it means u must start cooking dinner quite early, right?
