Steamed Buns, Rojak, Yellow Cucumber & Lotus Root Soup

Sunday 6th June - got up early but still have to wait till 7am before we can go out for our morning walk. 

Sunrise at 6:45am
Pink sky at 7:02am
Nice pink sky.

Sun rising from behind the mountains at 7:20am.

Upon reaching home from morning walk, I took out the 4 buns (neighbour gave) from the fridge to steam and made coffee at the same time.
There were 2 types of steamed buns.
2 bbq pork buns.
2 lam yee pork buns.
Both types were very tasty.

  22. The steamed buns look delicious, especially the bbq beans bun. Are they actual a steam bun? I haven't heard of those in USA. Nice look flowers on roadside. I need to wait til later this evening to go on a walk since it's 90 F. tempurature. Phil walked over the mall without me to get help with his cell phone. I like walking with him but not in the heat. I need to go out and water all the plants. Have a blessed week!

    1. These are actual steamed buns. You can find them in Chinese dim sum restaurants. I too do not like walking in the heat. Have a blessed new week.

  23. Your food tends to be healthier than your hubby's. But I'd vote for rojak over starfruit...
