This dinner was at Restoran Wong Sheng. We actually wanted to dine at this restaurant the Friday before this but we were disappointed to find it closed. Anyway, we returned the following Friday to find it opened for business. We ordered the following dishes for 6 people.

Steamed pork belly with taro.
Sauteed Milk Cabbage (Nai Pak Choy).
Stewed pork rib with bean curd sheet.
Steamed Tilapia with Nyonya sauce.
Salted egg yolk assorted veggie.
Dinner for 6 people costs RM125.
Heineken Dealcoholised Beer - Pure Malt.
Hubby received 4 cans of the above from a friend.
This is the first time we tasted this drink.
Creamy white Gardenia bloom.
Every time I walked past these plants, I get to enjoy its fragrance.
Rain droplets on the Gardenia bloom.
1 of 2 entrances to the Concubine Lane in Ipoh Old Town.
According to the locals, Concubine Lane was built by mining tycoon Yao Tet Shin for his 3 wives. Each lane was fittingly name Wife Lane, Concubine Lane and First Concubine Lane. While another version of the local tale is that it was also the place where rich men hid their mistresses. Today, Concubine Lane is the most famous lane, having been transformed into a popular hangout with a variety of pop-up stalls selling delicious ice balls, flower shaped cotton candy and more.

A drastic drop in tourists (both oversea and locals) due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Lord is my fort where I can enter and be safe;
no one can follow me in and slay me.
He is a rugged mountain where I hide; he is my Savior,
a rock where none can reach me, and a tower of safety.
He is my shield.
He is like the strong horn of a mighty fighting bull.
(Psalm 18:2, The Living Bible-TLB)

Yummy Snacks For Lunch

This was on a Thursday about 2 weeks ago. We received a call from our friend inviting us out for lunch. A few places were suggested. Finally, we settled on Kedai Minuman Dan Makanan Taman Timur which we have not been for a long time. Whenever I visit this eatery, I will order my favourite snacks. In fact, we all love and enjoy these snacks.

I ordered 2 plates of pie tees to share. Pie tees is one of my favourite snacks. I have the pie tee mould but I am lazy to make the pie tee shells.
Crispy fried batter with rojak sauce and sprinkling of crushed peanuts.
Thin crispy pancakes with peanuts and canned corn filling.
Hubby ordered this unsweetened black coffee.
For dinner, we met up with the same friends at the Perak Stadium food court. On that evening, only a few stalls were open for business.
Hubby ended up ordering this yee mee with chicken and wine in a claypot. I took a few mouthfuls and it was tasty and flavourful.
I had a hard time deciding and finally ended up ordering this plate of yee mee. It looked good but it was disappointing because it had a weird taste. After hubby finished his noodle, I transferred the noodle from my plate into the claypot. The remaining soup took away the weird taste for me to finish the noodle. Someone was not willing to go home after dinner, so we ended up at Restoran Kam Wan Aneka Selera.
We ordered bbq fish (half a stingray) to share.
After this, everyone was satisfied and happy to go home.
White bougainvillea with variegated leaves from my garden.
Pink Mexican petunia blooms from my garden.
A friend blessed me with some cuttings and now I have plenty of cuttings to share with others.

Hallelujah! Thank you, Lord! How good you are!
Your love for us continues on forever.
Who can ever list the glorious miracles of God?
Who can ever praise him half enough?
Happiness comes to those who are fair to others
and are always just and good. Remember me too, O Lord,
while you are blessing and saving your people.
Let me share in your chosen ones' prosperity and
rejoice in all their joys, and receive the glory you give to them.
(Psalm 106:1-5, The Living Bible-TLB)

Home Grown Veggies And Herbal Soup For Dinner

I am happy that I have cleared all the frozen foodstuff from my freezer and not my freezer is empty. I still have some instant noodles and canned food which I bought before MCO 2.0. For the past week, the Covid-19 cases have shot up in Ipoh and the cases seem to be all over the places. For everyone's safety, we have decided to stay home and avoid meeting up for meals with our friends for the time being.

The following are the dishes I cooked for dinner.

Home grown green brinjals and okra cooked with prawn paste, dried shrimps and chilies.
Blanched home grown sweet potato leaves and fresh abalone mushrooms, drizzled with garlic oil, oyster and soy sauce.
I used the last packet of frozen pork rib and a packet of dried Chinese herbs to boil herbal soup. We had steamed rice with the above dishes for dinner.
I found the following critters in my garden.
This grasshopper was found hiding in the centre of a pineapple plant, hugging a young leaf.
This baby green grasshopper was found on the concrete pillar of my front gate.
And finally, saw this large grasshopper sitting on the okra leaf.
It was a temporary guest, stopping by for 2 days before it was gone.

"Do this instead - start at the foot;
and when your host sees you he will come and say,
'Friend, we have a better place than this for you!'
Thus you will be honored in front of all the other guests.
For everyone who tries to honor himself shall be humbled;
and he who humbles himself shall be honored."
(Luke 14:10-11, The Living Bible-TLB)

Light Lunch At August Healing, Ipoh

A friend went to this cafe and told me about it. So one afternoon we met up at the same cafe. First, she has to tell me the exact location because I can easily miss the place. It was on the first floor and a small sign above the entrance door. The address is at No.18A, Jalan Theatre, Taman Jubilee, Ipoh.

I know of a close friend of mine who would love this place but climbing up that flight of stairs will not be convenient for her. Okay, back to what we ordered for 4 of us to share.

A piece of House Quiche.
Croissant with smoked duck, omelette & cheese.
Cheese cake - celebrating hubby's birthday.
Thanks to our 2 dear friends.
Coffee for hubby and I.
Sorry, I can't remember the exact names of the coffee.
I think this is expresso (non sweet) for hubby.
And this is White Flat or something (non sweet) for me.
Wall decorations next to our table.
Wall decorations in front of me.
The following are some of the yummies available at the cafe.
Honey Garlic Scones.
Belgium Choc Lamington.
Berries bread and butter pudding with vanilla sauce.
Garlic cream cheese roti and house made pretzel.
Croissants with smoked duck, omelette and cheese.
House quiche with veggie, mushroom, turkey ham and cheddar cheese.
Coffee machines.
Wild plants by the roadside.
One of the Nightshade plants.
It has pretty flowers with white petals and yellow centre.
Pink sunrise at 7:05am.
Very seldom we get to see pink sunrise like this.
Stunning pink sky.

For I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from his love.
Death can't, and life can't. The angels won't,
and all the powers of hell itself cannot keep God's love away.
Our fears for today, our worries about tomorrow,
or where we are - high above the sky,
or in the deepest ocean - nothing will ever be able to
separate us from the love of God demonstrated
by our Lord Jesus Christ when he died for us.
(Romans 8:38-39, The Living Bible-TLB)

Taro & Pumpkin With Dried Shrimp & Herbal Soup

For the time being, I have regular supply of home grown vegetables but they are limited to what I have planted in my garden.

Long green okra.
Green eggplant/aubergine/brinjals.
Brazilian spinach.
Sweet potato leaves.
These were planted by hubby.
The purple hearts plant needed some trimming.
These cuttings were given to a friend.
Simple home cooking for dinner.
I took out some frozen pork ribs to thaw.
Herbal soup: Pork ribs with a packet of dried Chinese herbs.
I have been craving for taro. Bought a small taro and half pumpkin from the morning road side stall. Cook taro, pumpkin with dried shrimp and garlic, and at the end added the spring onion.
Our simple home cooked dinner without rice.
We each had a bowl of soup and we shared the taro + pumpkin dish.

They worshiped together at the Temple each day,

met in homes for the Lord's Supper,

and shared their meals with great joy and generosity -

(Acts 2:46, The Living Bible-TLB)
