Fried Noodle, Bak Kwa, Salad, Curry Puff & Home Cooked Dinner

This was 2nd day of Lunar New Year (CNY). Even though we woke up early, we didn't go for morning walk. We even had our breakfast late. Hubby went out to buy breakfast and I stayed home to make hot drinks.

Fried rice vermicelli from our friend's stall.
We shared this place of fried noodle.
~~~~~
Lunch: Bak kwa, tong sui and salad.
There were some sweet dried meat (bak kwa) in the fridge. I took out to bake in the oven.
This year I made 1 kg of sweet dried meat (bak kwa).
Chilled leftover red bean and longan sweet drink from the fridge.
I used the leftover yam bean strips and cucumber strips to make salad with roasted sesamed dressing.
~~~~~
Home cooked dinner.
I fried this tail portion of the grouper fish. After frying the fish, I placed the fish on a plate and removed most of the oil, leaving a few spoonful in the wok. I then fried the ginger strips in the oil until golden brown and fragrant. Then I added some soy sauce before scooping up everything onto the fish.
Fermented bean curd (fu yue).
Hubby loves to add fu yue to his plain rice porridge.
I heat up the leftover pickled salted mustard green dish.
I boiled some plain rice porridge for hubby and hubby added the fu yue into the porridge.
I didn't want porridge, so I heat up a curry puff in the oven.
This was our home cooked dinner on the 2nd day of CNY.

Neon Tetra - Paracheirodon innesi (scientific name).
My friend's son (Joshua) shared his aquarium fish with me. These fishes are from the Amazon basin. They exist in large shoals and are one of the most popular aquarium pets as they are relatively easy to maintain. They are peaceful fishes. Good tank mates are other tetra species, Corydoras and Oto catfishes.


Turn away from evil and do good.
Search for peace, and work to maintain it.
(Psalm 34:14, New Living Translation-NLT)

  8. Nancy, do you always eat your fish as a whole fish? I've never tried to eat my fish as a whole.

  11. Podemos acreditar que tudo que a vida nos oferecerá no futuro é repetir o que fizemos ontem e hoje. Mas, se prestarmos atenção, vamos nos dar conta de que nenhum dia é igual a outro. Cada manhã traz uma bênção escondida; uma bênção que só serve para esse dia e que não se pode guardar nem desaproveitar. Se não usamos este milagre hoje, ele vai se perder. Este milagre está nos detalhes do cotidiano; é preciso viver cada minuto porque ali encontramos a saída de nossas confusões, a alegria de nossos bons momentos, a pista correta para a decisão que tomaremos. Nunca podemos deixar que cada dia pareça igual ao anterior porque todos os dias são diferentes, porque estamos em constante processo de mudança.

  23. Lovely meal as usual!

    Ooh I have always LOVED that kind of aquarium. Tried to replicate but couldn't keep the plants alive. Nor the neon/cardinal tetras. I give up for now.
