I will give them - in my house,
within my walls - a name far greater than the honor
they would receive from having sons and daughters.
For the name that I will give them is an everlasting one;
it will never disappear.

~~~~~
Dine-in breakfast.
Again, we chose a table for 2 people at the 5 foot way to avoid sitting inside the shop. It was early and there were only a handful of dine-in customers.
I ordered this hand torn pan mee which I enjoyed very much.
I also ordered 2 dumplings (sui kao) to share with hubby.
Hubby ordered noodle from the yeong tau fu stall. These were some of the stuffed ingredients he ordered which were quite good.
I get to see this side and back view of the building from where I sat.
I bought 4 packets of Nyonya kuih from the coffee shop and gave 2 packs to my neighbour. This is one of the places selling nice Nyonya kuih.

We had only 1 dish for dinner.
A friend gave me a big tub of stewed chicken with dried shiitake mushrooms. I quickly went out to buy some mustard green to add to the stewed chicken. Add in some dried chilies and assam keping for flavour. Gave some to neighbour and we finished the whole thing with steamed rice.

Stewed Duck, Steamed Tilapia & Stinky Bean With Minced Meat

This was another hot and humid day. We woke up late, an excuse to cancel morning walk.

We need to support our regular noodle stall.
We bought fish noodle for breakfast.
Cockscomb flowers from our front garden.
These are self-propagating and doesn't need much care except to water them.

We ordered veggie (pak choy) in superior soup.
Sambal stinky beans with minced meat.

For the above 3 dishes, we requested for small portion.

Once we finished our dinner, there was no chit chatting.
We put back our face mask, checked out from the place and got into the car.
We reached home early, in time to take these sunset shots.


When I look at the night sky and see the work of your fingers -
the moon and the stars you set in place -
what are mere mortals that you should think about them,
human beings that you should care for them?
Yet you made them only a little lower than God
and crowned them with glory and honor.
You gave them charge of everything you made,
putting all things under their authority -
the flocks and the herds and all the wild animals,
the birds in the sky, the fish in the sea,
and everything that swims the ocean currents.
(Psalm 8:3-8, New Living Translation-NLT)

Pork Rib Sui Kao Wonton Noodle, Curry Puffs & Lotus Root Soup

We didn't go for morning walk because it rained early this morning. It was forecasted that there was rain but it didn't. Hopefully the dry spell is over and the rain will be back so that I can start to grow some new edibles in my garden.

This was last Thursday morning at 7:20am taken during our morning walk.
7:28am
This was one of the hot days.
~~~~~
Hubby wanted to eat our favourite wonton noodle in town.
There were only 3 customers ahead of us. It was only about 8:20am but we were told that wonton dumplings were sold out.
So we ordered wonton noodle with sweet sour pork rib and sui kao.
This wonton noodle is special because it is thinner than others.
This soup is extra flavourful. We don't get thirsty drinking this soup so it could not be due to msg added.
The lady boss is very generous with the pickled green chili.
Somehow I will finish all.
Hubby stopped on the way to buy RM10 worth of roast pork.
I kept the roast pork in the fridge for dinner.
Deep pink Balsam plants in my front garden.
Balsam plants do not last long but they are self-propagating.
I bought a small pack of large size cookies (hup toh soh in Cantonese).
Very nice and crumbly. I can only eat half of it at one time.
Chinese rojak for lunch.
I finally get down to making curry puff with the ready made puff pastry skin that was sitting in the freezer. For the filling, I used chicken breast meat, potatoes, onions and curry powder. These were kept in the fridge. Whenever I want some for breakfast, lunch or snack, I will reheat whatever I need in the oven.
Home cooked dinner for 2 people.
Blanched baby pak choy, drizzled with garlic oil, oyster and soy sauce.
Lotus root, carrot, red dates, goji berries, a small dried cuttlefish and chicken bones. The soup is full of natural sweetness. I do not used msg because it causes headache and makes me thirsty. I shared the soup with our neighbour as they have gone back to work full time.

How long, LORD, will the wicked, how long will the wicked be jubilant?
They crush your people, LORD; they oppress your inheritance.
They slay the widow and the foreigner; they murder the fatherless.
Take notice, you senseless ones among the people;
you fools, when will you become wise?
Does he who fashioned the ear not hear?
Does he who formed the eye not see?
Does he who disciplines nations not punish?
Does he who teaches mankind lack knowledge?
The LORD knows all human plans; he knows that they are futile.
(Psalm 94:3,5-6,8-11, New International Version-NIV)
