Fish Wine Noodle, Hokkien Mee And 4 Treasures Rice Porridge

This was 2 Saturdays ago (17th July).

Sunrise at 6:52am, before we start our morning walk.
A plane leaving behind trails in the sky.
~~~~~
We went out together in our car.
Hubby bought breakfast while I went to get some vegetables.
Fish noodle with wine and some fried items.
1 portion of fish noodle (RM9 per portion) is enough for the 2 of us. Ingredients consist of beehoon, fried fish chunks, pickled veg (hum choy), green veg (choy sum), napa cabbage, tomato, ginger strips and Chinese cooking wine. I like to add bird's eye chilies to my bowl for extra kick (oomph).
We pass by these Sleeping hibiscus flowers every morning.
Hubby went out to buy Hokkien fried fat/thick noodle from a new stall.
1 portion for 2 people to share.
After so many years, I still miss the Hokkien fried mee from Petaling Street, KL.
We spotted this big bird perched on top of the power cable pole.
 I managed to take these snapshot from where I was with my hand phone before it flew to another place.
From this new position, I managed to get slightly clearer images of the bird.
~~~~~
Home cooked dinner.
This time I cooked 4 treasures rice porridge instead of 5 treasures rice porridge because I want to keep the century egg to eat with the pickled ginger.
4 treasures rice porridge
Ingredients: roasted pork bones, minced pork, salted egg & pickled mustard (char choy).
Sauteed napa cabbage and carrot with garlic and salt to taste.
Light dinner for a warm evening.
I know very little about birds. Don't know whether this is an eagle or a hawk.
Can someone help to identify this bird?

Linking to Saturday's Critters.

He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
(Isaiah 40:29-31, New International Version-NIV)

  2. KL Hokkien mee! I like!!! Four treasures porridge? Here we have a dish - Eight Treasures chicken or pork leg - pek ting eyok - very popular, very nutritious, Would be great to cook black chicken with those herbs.

  8. Great shots of the bird, I'm not sure what it is. I hope someone can identify it for you. Is the sleeping hibiscus called that because the flowers don't fully open?

    1. Yes, Martha. That is the reason for naming it sleeping hibiscus.

  10. Cannot tell what bird that is, sorry. The fish noodle is so worth the price with such a big portion. I would love to eat the 4 treasure congee. I believe the hokkien Mee in petaling street that you ate is from Kim Lin Kei. Is it?

  25. Those are called 'sleeping' hibiscus? But they're standing upright!

    ReplyDelete

    1. It is called sleeping hibiscus because they remain as buds. They won't open up like other hibiscus flowers.

  26. What beautiful photos.
    I think the bird is a juvenile hawk.
    The food looks nice.
