Arrow Root Pork Rib Soup & Sambal Canned Sardin For Dinner

This was 1 week before Ipoh starts EMCO (enhanced movement control order). As usual, we did our morning walk and the following bird photos were taken during our walk home.

Birds in a line on the roof.
Birds in flight.
On the ground, we did our walking exercise.
Up above, the birds are doing their flying exercise, circling above us.

Back home, I took out 2 glutinous rice dumplings from the fridge which hubby bought from the night market the day before and steamed them.
Dumplings (bak chang) in their leaf wrappings.
Our simple breakfast with 2-in-1 black coffee.
Both the white and black dumplings are equally delicious.
~~~~~
Simple lunch
I bought these 2 vegetarian bean curd rolls from the roadside stall on our morning walk. I unwrapped one and cut for lunch.
Hubby's lunch.
I took out the previous night's leftover soup, heated it up for my lunch.
I took 2 cream crackers with strawberry jam with soup for lunch.
~~~~~
Dinner
I boiled soup.
Ingredients used: arrow root, carrot, pork rib, red dates and gojiberries.
I used canned sardine to cook sambal sardine.
This can of sardine was bought during the 2nd MCO for cooking assam laksa but somehow it didn't happen.
I used up the remaining lettuce and capsicum for salad.
Steamed rice for hubby. No rice for me so I ate this plate of salad.
Only a small portion of sambal sardine was eaten so I kept the rest to make sardine sandwich for my breakfast.
Dredging buckets used for tin mining.
These were displayed at Palong Tin Mining Museum @ Kinta Riverfront, Ipoh.


Worship the Lord with the beauty of holy lives.
Let the earth tremble before him.
Tell the nations that Jehovah reigns! He rules the world.
His power can never be overthrown. He will judge all nations fairly.
Let the heavens be glad, the earth rejoice;
let the vastness of the roaring seas demonstrate his glory.
Praise him for the growing fields, for they display his greatness.
Let the trees of the forest rustle with praise.
(Psalm 96:9-12, The Living Bible-TLB)

  3. Love all your food as usual. Do the two dumplings - white and dark - have fillings in them? From the photo, looks like no fillings.

    1. Both the dumplings have filling in them just that they were well hiddin inside.

  4. Your sambal sardine - is it spicy or not? If not too spicy then I can eat it with bread. It would be like gardenia sardine sambal bun. I am not sure got this product or not. Lolx! I know gardenia has spicy sambal buns.

    1. The sambal sardine is not spicy. Actually, I prefer it to be spicier.

  5. Your soup must be so naturally sweet with all the carrots and ingredients in it! Did you keep some soup for the next day? Love your salad. And the way you eat crackers with jam and soup for lunch!

  9. I like sardines but the rest of my family hates even the smell of them. I don't know why they like them. Oh well, Nancy have a wonderful day.

    1. It is understandable because some sardines have very strong fish smell.

  17. Stay safe during EMCO Nancy. I hope our cases come down as 7800+ yesterday was just too much. Looks like you saw a bird wave during your walk. I also enjoy simple cream crackers (comfort food when we were kids) and I have them with butter and bovril. Love dumplings too esp the ones with belly pork and mushroom.

  21. The salads and all the capsicum (we call them bell peppers because they are bell shaped if you hold them stem side down) look so good!
