Buns & Bread And Sweet Sour Pig Trotter

There are mornings when the sky is just gray with no sign of sunrise in sight. Then I will be looking for some other interesting things to take snapshots. There is one newly renovated double storey corner house that we used to pass by.

The new owner has planted these decorative trees and grass on this raised up area.

Breakfast
We had steamed buns (from neighbour) for breakfast.
2 buns with bbq pork filling and 2 with chicken curry filling.
These 2 baked buns with bbq pork filling were for mid morning snack.
For lunch, we had Campbell's chicken soup and bun with garlic butter spread.
These corn on cobs were for afternoon snack.
I bought some century eggs and I remember I have pickled ginger in the fridge. Century egg drizzled with a bit of sesame oil is best eaten with pickled ginger.

Home cooked dinner.
Sweet, sour, and spicy pig trotter dish. 
Just this dish alone is enough to go with steamed rice.
Sunset at 7:15pm
This lovely sunset made up for the lack of sunrise.
There is one public pay phone booth still standing in front of the row of shop houses. On a closer look, one can see that it is no longer working because the receiver is missing. These days, hardly anyone would use a public pay phone. Almost everyone has a hand phone.


So get rid of all that is wrong in your life, both inside and outside,
and humbly be glad for the wonderful message we have received,
for it is able to save our souls as it takes hold of our hearts.
(James 1:21, The Living Bible-TLB)

  1. The buns look so good! The trees look like they may have been trimmed to look like this?

    1. Yes, these are more like home made buns. The fillings are also different from the dim sum restaurants.

  4. So sad about the public telephone. These things should be preserved, our heritage. Lovely neighbourhood!

    1. I am surprised to see the stand there plus the remains of the pay phone. Most have been removed long time ago.

  5. You are right about public telephone being all not used because everyone has a hp now. I forgot to take my hp with me when I went out one day back in year 2015 and I couldn't find a working public phone. ended up I need to borrow the telephone from the customer service in a shopping mall. Luckily they were very kind and let me use their phone. Have you ever forgotten to take your hp out with you and then need to call someone?

    1. I think there was once or twice that I didn't have my hand phone with me but I was with some friends so no problem if I need to call someone.

  6. I love to eat century eggs but seldom drizzle them with sesame oil. Just eat them with pickled gingers or pickled onions. How did you cook the sweet sour pork trotters? I see they have like curry sauce or something similar on them. Can share the recipe please? Tq.

    1. I don't have a fixed recipe. I remember using lots of onions, some garlic, a little ginger, 1 stalk serai, some chilies and process them together in a paste. I also used taucu, assam keping, sugar and salt. My measurement is agak-agak or approx. Actually, I love to add daikon but that day I didn't.

  13. We no longer have any phone booths around the area. I don't understand why. Oh, of course. Everyone had cell phones except me. Have a great day Nancy.

  14. I got stuck on all the food. I always do. Yummy.

    I can't remember seeing a payphone for a very long time. Yes we all have our cell phones. It's much better in many ways.

  19. So much effort to dot the buns with all those little dots!

    All these payphones have been vandalised. Such a waste.

    1. I think it is to differentiate the fillings in the buns.

  20. The plants and grass look so nice and Japanese! The owner must have spend a lot of money and efforts maintaining them.

    Your sky shots always look so lovely.

    Lol at the missing receiver.
