Nasi Briyani From Balans Corner Restaurant

The rainy season is here and right now, it is raining outside as I sit here putting up my post.

Dawn at 6:55am
No morning walk on this particular morning because there was a slight drizzle and dark sky over us.
Sunlight shining through the dark clouds - 7:45am
~~~~~
We were informed by our friend that we needn't have to worry about getting lunch. Food will be delivered to our house come lunch time.
Special Nasi Briyani for lunch!
There are pieces of chicken, 1 hard boiled egg and sambal wrapped together with the flavoured rice.
Papadam crackers in a plastic bag.
Fried bitter gourd and eggplant.
Gourd sambal.
We also received "mango lassi" (creamy fresh mango with tangy yogurt) in the above plastic cups.
We have been wanting to dine-in at Balans Corner to enjoy this special nasi briyani. Instead, someone is so thoughtful and kind to deliver the nasi briyani direct to our house. Hubby and I shared a packet of nasi briyani for lunch and kept the other packet for dinner. Thanks to our friends, we get to enjoy the promotional nasi briyani for lunch and dinner.
My garden had a pretty visitor.
After a long spell, this pretty dragonfly decided to pay us a visit.


Dear brothers, you are only visitors here.
Since your real home is in heaven, I beg you to keep away
from the evil pleasures of this world;
they are not for you, for they fight against your very souls.
(1 Peter 2:11, The Living Bible-TLB)

    1. It has been raining most days especially in the afternoon or late evening. At least it brings down the temperature and we have very nice cool evenings.

  10. So glad your friends brought you food so no need to go out and eat. Dragonfly is pretty. We've had rain a bit last few days, but not alot. It's enough that I don't need to water my plants, especially the potted plants. I may need to water the new tree as it needs more for another week. Restaurants are back open again, after being closed for a week, per governor. Have a good weekend!!!

  11. Say here we are entering the rainy season, the saying April showers bring May flowers is now May showers bring June heat! We kind of go right from cool rainy weather to heat and humidity. That food looks amazing! Yes lots more dinning out happening here.

  14. I love the Briyani set meals especially the mango lassi. Your friend is so thoughtful. Did you reheat the Briyani rice when you both eat it for dinner?

  15. The dragon fly is so special because it is red. Did it fly to another garden on its own?

  17. We have a cool and rainy (off and on) day too. Which is good as I am doing renos to the kitchen before summer hits. your Nasi Briyani looks fabulous! And Iit has been 2 years since I've had mango lassi! Oh YUM! Dragonflies always remind me to live in the present and look for the gifts and beauty I encounter each day. I always feel blessed when I see them.

  18. You really do have kind friends, but it dismays me to see all that plastic crap that will find its way into the landfills and into the oceans.

    1. So true, we can't help but feel sad over the excess use of plastic. At one time we were making progress with doing away with plastics.
