Thursday's Mish Mash

This was Monday morning after we have finished our morning walk and our breakfast at our regular coffee shop. 
Morning sky at 7:35 am.
I took some snapshots of these hibiscus growing by the roadside on our walk home.
This is also our country's national flower.
This baby banana plant given to me by a friend is growing nicely in a big pot. It is grown more for the leaves to be used in cooking. Hopefully, it will also bear fruits.

Lunch & Dinner
I boiled ABC soup with pork (the "armpit" part that "never see the sky") ABC soup is rich in vitamins A, B, C, and the ingredients used is usually carrot, tomatoes, potatoes, onions, and etc, with some crushed white peppercorns.
Since we had an early and light breakfast, we had steamed rice and ABC soup for lunch with spicy chilly oil as condiment.
The remaining soup was re-heated and we each had a bowl of soup for dinner. There was enough meat and ingredients from the soup to fill our tummy without having to take rice or noodle.
After my son left to go back to work early Sunday morning after spending the weekend with us, it was time to wash the quilt, bed sheet, and etc. This is where I hang out my washing in the garden for quick drying.
Surprisingly, I don't seem to have the time to sew quilts after I retired.

  4. Your quilt is so beautiful! It is quite a time consuming activity I think. Now that you are retired, you have many more activities to enjoy!

    1. I used to make quilts for my own family when I was still working. But now, I have too many hobbies that I don't have the time for quilts.

    1. Thank you, Stacy. According to my pork seller, in Cantonese, it is called "pak kin teen" meaning never see the sky or exposed to the sun.
