Loh Mee, Daikon Soup & Vegetable Acar

On this particular morning, we had breakfast at Restoran Meng Meng Kee, Menglembu new township. We managed to get a table for 4 people. We ordered 3 bowls of prawn noodle and 1 bowl of loh mee.

I ordered loh mee. I requested for a mixture of loh mee and prawn mee broth, meaning a more diluted loh mee broth. I don't like yellow noodle so I requested for rice vemicelli.
There were 2 couples. For each couple, we ordered 2 half boiled eggs and 2 slices of toast with butter and kaya.
I was looking for Kewpie roasted sesame dressing in my area but I only managed to find the above brand which I bought to try. This will do for the time being.
I used the roasted sesame dressing to make cucumber salad. It looks pale because I removed the skin from the cucumber. The ingredients used: cucumber, dried cranberry, pine nuts, walnuts, and roasted sesame dressing.
This season, this hibiscus plant has been blooming non stop with 1 to 2 flowers per day.

Home cooked dinner for 2.
Daikon soup.
Ingredients used: pork rib, daikon, carrot, red dates, goji berries, and salt to taste.
For convenience and less plates to wash, the rice was placed in the bowl and we had rice in the soup. Good suggestion from hubby. Lol!
Took out another portion of vegetable acar.
This vegetable acar can be eaten as snack too.
A simple and satisfying dinner.

Sky watching. Sunset at 6:10pm
I can see the head of a big bird (a beak and eye facing left) above the tree tops.
And just behind the bird's head, I can also see an old witch just above the tree top. Can you see what I saw? Can you see anything else?


No one can predict misfortune.
Like fish caught in a cruel net or birds in a trap,
so men and women are caught by accidents evil and sudden.

    1. I only mix the soup when it comes to loh mee. I find the loh mee broth too thick for my liking.

  3. Mixing the rice with the soup is so practical! In fact some restaurants serve rice soup and it's exactly like that. LOL!
