Stuffed Fish, Pickled Fruit, Turmeric Rice & Black Chicken Herbal Soup

A morning without any sign of sunrise. We started our walk at about 7am.

Facing west, the Kledang Hill.
Gloomy sky.
~~~~~
Chinese art mural on the concrete wall of a Chinese school.
I sought my neighbour's help with the Chinese character.
The Chinese character means Sincere.
This one means filial.
On the way back, we stopped to buy fried noodle and pig's skin+long bean curry.
Economy fried noodle + curry + milo for hubby.
I picked and ate the long beans in the curry.
Toast + apricot jam + black coffee for me.
Midday sky at 12:50pm.
A friend came to pass me a tub of turmeric+coconut oil rice.
And a small tub of fruit pickle or acar buah in Malay.
It so happened that my neighbour bought 2 stuffed fish for us.
Heated up leftover steamed sour plum sauce pork rib.
Delicious and filling lunch for 2 people.
~~~~~
The friend who sent me the turmeric rice and fruit pickle forwarded the following photos from her garden.
Is this a Bromeliad/Guzmania?
Hope someone can help to identify this plant.

No rice for dinner since we had taken rice for lunch. Instead we had noodle.

Ending this post with an evening sky at 7:48pm.


But the good man - what a different story!
For the good man - the blameless, the upright,
the man of peace - he has a wonderful future ahead of him.
For him there is a happy ending.

Assam Laksa With Instant Paste & Steamed Pork Rib In Sour Plum Sauce

It was a warm Sunday morning. There was hardly any breeze.

Sunrise at 7:09am

Another warm and humid day.
Toast and Bru coffee+nestum for me.
Wat tan hor and milo for hubby.
The hot weather seems to be good for this golden leaves plant.
Does anyone knows the id of this plant?
~~~~~
I bought a pineapple which was not ripe and very sour. I thought of using the pineapple for curry but changed my mind when I saw a packet of instant assam laksa paste which I bought to try.
I boiled the pineapple in some water and added in the instant assam laksa paste. I let it simmer for some time before adding in the canned mackerel or sardine fish in tomato sauce. I only used the fish and discarded the tomato sauce. I thought I had 2 small cans of sardine fish but it turned out that 1 of them was a fried mackerel in chili sauce. So, I ended up with less fish flakes in the laksa soup.
I use rice vermicelli (beehoon) for the laksa.
Using lots of pineapple gave the assam laksa soup a sweet taste.
I used AA1 number one Instant Asam Laksa paste.
~~~~~
The bottle of sour plum sauce will be expiring soon so I need to finish it as fast as I can. I used the sour plum sauce to steam pork rib for dinner.
Marinate for pork rib before steaming:
salt, sugar, chopped garlic, soy sauce, sour plum sauce and bird's eye chilies.
Ayam Brand fried mackerel or sardine in chili sauce which I accidentally opened thinking it was mackerel in tomato sauce. This is the first time we have tasted this and we like it.
Blanched baby choy sum, drizzled with garlic oil, oyster and soy sauce.
Appetizing dinner for 2 people.
We finished the fried mackerel in chili sauce and have leftover sour plum sauce pork rib which we kept in the fridge for next day.

I want to suggest that you finish what you started to do a year ago,
for you were not only the first to propose this idea,
but the first to begin doing something about it.
(2 Corinthians 8:10, The Living Bible-TLB)

Dim Sum Breakfast & Arrow Root With Peanut Soup For Dinner

 This was the 2nd Thursday of July. 

Sunrise at 7am.
Setting out for our morning walk.
This bird on the tip of the branch (opposite my house) was happily and loudly chirping away.
Sunrise at 7:03am
Sunrise at 7:10am
~~~~~
We bought breakfast from the Dim Sum Restaurant.
Do you think we can finish all the above items?
First, we started on the glutinous rice wrapped in lotus leaf.
Next, we ate the "lam yee" pau or steamed bun with pork belly.
Between these 2 above, we chose one.
We chose the yam puff. It is only nice to eat when the outer skin is still crispy.
We kept the above 2 items for lunch.
Steamed bun (san yuk pau) and chicken pie (kai soh).
Pretty chive flower from my garden.

Home cooked dinner
Soup: Arrowroot, peanut, carrot, red dates, goji berries and pork rib.
Stir fried broccoli and carrot with garlic and salt.
Fried egg for hubby and tuna with chili for me.
We accidentally bought this tuna with chili.
 Kept the leftover to make sandwich for next day's breakfast.


In every battle you will need faith as your shield
to stop the fiery arrows aimed at you by Satan.
And you will need the helmet of salvation
and the sword of the Spirit - which is the Word of God.
(Ephesians 6:16-17, The Living Bible-TLB)

When that time comes, people will no longer say,
'The parents ate the sour grapes,
but the children got the sour taste.'
Instead, those who eat sour grapes
will have their own teeth set on edge;
and everyone will die because of their own sin."
(Jeremiah 31:29-30. Good News Translation-GNT)
