Thankful For The Food And Fruits Gifts

Since we can only start our morning walk at 7am, I tried to sleep and wake up later but it seems that my biological clock has been set and cannot be reset. To pass the time while waiting, I will read news and check messages on my hand phone. If it is still early, I will sweep the porch area and take snapshots of the morning sky.

Pink sunrise at 6:58am.
Sunrise partially hidden by dark cloud at 7:30am.
No more dark cloud at 7:33am.
Golden sunrise at 7:37am.
Starting of a warm day.
~~~~~
Breakfast at home.
A friend gave us 4 home made glutinous rice dumplings (bak chang). I took out 2 from the fridge to steam for breakfast.
These 2 were peanuts and red beans "chang" or vegetarian dumplings.
Very yummy dumplings.
We had Chinese tea with the dumplings.
Bigger than palm size hibiscus from my garden.
Received the above gifts from our neighbour.
4 cup cakes individually wrapped in plastic bag.
Ready cooked sweet sour black pomfret in plastic container, kept for dinner.
Ready cooked stewed preserved vegetable with pork belly in plastic container, kept for dinner.
~~~~~
Lunch
Cup cake with "tong sui"
I cooked sweet drink (tong sui) consisting of peach gum, dried longan, honey dates, red dates, goji berries, rock sugar and pandan leaves.
My portion of healthy snack to be eaten as I blog hopped.
Sweet Jackfruit from a friend's garden.
~~~~~
Later in the afternoon, a friend who was shopping for essentials stopped in front of my house on her way home to bless us with the following:
From left to right: 2 green guavas, 2 mangoes, 5 apples, and some Jackfruits. So thoughtful and generous of our friend. This is more than a week's supply of fruits for us.
~~~~~
Dinner
All I have to do was to heat up what my neighbour bought for us.
Sweet sour black pomfret.
Preserved vegetable (mui choy) with pork.
I just did a quick stir fry the beansprout and chives with garlic and salt to taste.
There was a little bit of this and that left behind. Not wanting to throw away food, the municipal trash bin (me) cleared up everything to avoid any leftover for the next day.


What happiness for those whose guilt has been forgiven!
What joys when sins are covered over!
What relief for those who have confessed their sins
and God has cleared their record.
(Psalm 32:1-2, The Living Bible-TLB)

  12. The yellow hibiscus is beautiful! Very nice of your neighbour and friend to give you both the food and fruits. Were you very full since you have to finish all the food to avoid keeping them in the fridge and to avoid throwing them?
