Winter Melon & Pork Rib Soup

A friend gave me a small winter melon. I usually use winter melon to cook sweet drink (tong sui) and soup. I used two-third of the winter melon to cook sweet drink with dried longan and loh hon kor. For this sweet drink, I didn't add any sugar because the sweetness from the loh hon kor and longan is enough for us. The remaining one-third of the winter melon was used for boiling soup.

Winter Melon & Pork Rib Soup - my dinner.
Ingredients used: winter melon, pork rib, carrot, and red dates.
Winter melon soup with noodle - hubby's dinner
No carrot for him because he doesn't like carrot.
Peace Lily (spathiphyllum) from my garden.
Love the pure white colour of the petal.
This type of insect is attracted to the flower spadix.
Few days ago, a friend sent me some nice images which was taken in Kiara Park. Below is an image and a video of a weird looking beetle.

But you, Timothy, man of God: Run for your life from all this.

Pursue a righteous life-a life of wonder, faith, love, steadiness, courtesy.

Run hard and fast in the faith. Seize the eternal life, the life you were called to,

the life you so fervently embraced in the presence of so many witnesses.

(1 Timothy 6:11-12, The Message-MSG)

  5. Good that you didn't use any sugar in the winter melon tong sui. lohongo n longan will make it sweet, you are right. The noodles in winter melon soup looks good. The beetle looks like a dried leaf. The white peace lily is so very white. How long will it last so beautiful?

  9. Those are interesting bugs you shared photos of. Nice flowers and food. I like your scripture verse as well. Yummy food. I did get a chicken bowl yesterday at LoveLoveTeriyaki restaurant when out and about shopping in one area. So delicious, even if I have to eat in my car. Only take out or drive thru allowed for awhile here in Oregon, USA. Hopefully they will be opened up again soon. Have a good weekend!

  23. Wait is that a peace lily or an anthurium? Or are they the same thing?

    I don't buy winter melons since they have no taste.

  26. The soup looks yummy, and the fly on the peace lily is a beautiful photo. Looked up more on the rather big female beetle, as its shell looks so large compared to its head. Interesting watching it slowly crawl across a persons hand.
