Mee Jawa, Fried Noodle, Chili Pan Mee & Loh Mee

5th of June. No more EMCO (for Ipoh) but now under FMCO (nationwide full lockdown). Starting our morning walk at 7am is better than not walking at all.

Sunrise at 6:45am.
The cloud formation is interesting.
What can you see?
To me, it looks like a horse or a dog (facing right).
What can you see?
After morning walk, we drove out to Restoran Tet Shin to buy fried rice vermicelli and mee jawa.
Fried rice vermicelli for hubby.
Mee jawa for me.
We ended up sharing our breakfast.
We received some star fruits and matoa fruits from a friend.
Matoa is from the Lychee family. This is the 2nd time I get to taste this fruit.
Matoa fruits look more like longan. The skin is quite hard. I have to use my palm to press the fruit against the table top to break the skin.
The flesh is thick and sweet.
~~~~~
My neighbour who is working from home had to go back to her office to collect some stationery. On the way home, she tapau (take away) lunch for us.
On the right is chili pan mee and loh mee is on the right.
Chili pan mee tossed with soy sauce, topped with minced pork, mushroom and lots of crunchy fried anchovies. Green amaranth soup in a separate container.
Loh mee with greens and mushroom on the right. The thick gravy, minced pork and black vinegar on the right in a separate container.
Hubby doesn't like loh mee so he ate the chili pan mee.
I like loh mee and I enjoyed it very much.
For dinner, I heated up the leftover 5 treasures rice porridge and we each had a big plate of porridge.
~~~~~
Murals from our morning walk.
Mural of a Chinese sinseh (doctor practicing traditional Chinese medicine) checking the pulse rate of a patient.
A strong young man carrying an elderly woman in a basket on his back.
He is smiling and it doesn't look like she is a burden to him.

Give your burdens to the Lord. He will carry them.
He will not permit the godly to slip or fall.
(Psalm 55:22, The Living Bible-TLB)

  4. that's a nice Chinese mural captured from your morning walk...I wonder what place/building is that to have these murals? Looks like freshly painted and quite new as the colours are still intact and not stained.
    I hardly see any mural in my area, unless in the school compound.

    1. These murals are on the concrete walls surrounding a Chinese school. The whole wall is covered with murals.

  21. The cloud does look like a horse with w rider on it. Your food looks so good. We went on a walk this evening but I only made it 2 streets as I was a bit tired. I woke up early to get ready for a virtual young living convention. Good to watch this a.m. and a couple afternoon workshops. One was a virtual visit to a lavender farm and "walk"thru the distillery. I need to do some bible study b4 i fall asleep. :-)
