Otak-otak, Chicken Wings & Prawns+Pineapple Curry For Dinner

It is fun to have a combined meal with friends. We have both parties doing the cooking and contributing the food to the meal. In this way the work is reduced by half and we get to enjoy each other's cooking plus company. We had the following items for one of our early combined dinner at 4:30 pm.

Our friend ordered this Otak-otak (grilled fish cake). I love otak-otak and maybe one day I will try to make this.

Fried rice from the same friend. We each had a small portion of this fried rice.The same friend made Fried Chicken Wings with a Air-Fryer cooker.

The following items were from my kitchen.

Prawns and pineapple curry.
A simple Jicama (sengkuang), carrot & dried prawns dish without the dried cuttlefish which I thought I had in the fridge but couldn't find it.
Home made Herbal Jelly (Gui Ling Gao) for dessert.
Since we finished dinner early, we went to one of the shopping mall for window shopping and walking exercise. Lots of lighted colourful lanterns ahead of the Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival (Moon Cake Festival) which falls on the 1st October, 2020.
My pink multi-layered petals hibiscus. The colour is a faded pink because it was taken at late afternoon.

Have a Blessed Sunday!

For you have a new life.

It was not passed on to you from your parents,

for the life they gave you will fade away.

This new one will last forever, for it comes from Christ,

God's ever-living Message to men.

(1 Peter 1:23, The Living Bible-TLB)
