Steamed Taro And Pork Belly For Dinner

Lately, I have been trying to spend some time clearing weeds from my garden. Due to plentiful rainfall, the weeds seem to be doing better and growing faster than the edibles in my garden.  

I found this lone mushroom in my garden. It is very unusual.
Instead of an umbrella shape top curving downwards, it curved upwards.
~~~~~
This was 4 days before MCO 2.0.
Hubby asked, "What are you cooking for dinner?" Actually, I was in lazy mode but I didn't feel like eating takeaway food. A short while later, I remembered we had some ready cooked food in the freezer.
I steamed the tub of ready cooked taro with pork belly. It was a very flavourful dish.
To heat up the fish paste and minced pork patties, I lightly fried them in a non-stick pan.
This was our dinner for 2 people.
The above photo was taken at a Flea Market in the year 2019.
There were pewter wares, smoking pipes, keris, coconut scraper, irons and etc.
~~~~~
The following shadow photos were taken during one of our morning walks.
We passed by a few street lamps and they cast nice shadows.
We have been passing by this way and I think this is the first time I thought taking snapshots of our shadows.
We cast long but blur shadows.
I managed to get a clear snapshot of our shadows.


O God, have pity, for I am trusting you!
I will hide beneath the shadow of your wings until this storm is past.
(Psalm 57:1, The Living Bible-TLB)

    1. Actually, I haven't got the CNY feel yet, probably because of MCO or CMCO.

  21. What an unusual mushroom! I always enjoy it when you show us your plants. We get little rain around here so our plants are quite different and not as luscious.
