Pre-Merdeka Day Celebration With Home Cooked Dinner

We woke up early last Sunday morning and we went for our early morning walk. After a light breakfast, we walked back home. Then I swept the porch area, fed my guppies and watered the plants.
Cockscomb flowers in front of my house.
I noticed many baby plants around these plants. Will be expecting a lot of cockscomb flowers when they started to grow and flower.
Harvested 2 bitter gourds from my garden.

So let us celebrate the festival,
not with the old bread of wickedness and evil,
but with the new bread of sincerity and truth.

  2. Delicious home cooked dinner with home grown vegetables. Love the prawns and luffa and eggs dish. Can just eat that for dinner with rice. How did you grow that flower - from seeds?

    1. The cockscomb plant is grown from seeds. Actually, the seeds start to fall and self propagated and small plants will sprout out around the parent plant.

  7. Your Cockscomb flowers are just simply gorgeous! I need to try raising them again. But have tried two or three times and they just don't seem to do good in my yard.

    1. Over here, it is easy for the plants to grow without much care. All it needs is plenty of sunlight and water.

  13. You cook well and seemingly so effortlessly. It would have taken me ages to come up with that stuffed bittergourd and you have other dishes too.
