Hong Kong Chee Cheong Fun, Braised Yee Mee & Assam Fish Curry

According to the sop, we are allowed to go out for outdoor activities from 7am onwards. We are not complaining but we do miss going out before the sky lights up before the lockdown.
Sunrise at 6:37am
Even though we are up early, we still have to wait and watch the clock. It is better to follow sop to avoid getting a fine.
6:40am
~~~~~
After morning walk, we drove out to a nearby town to buy breakfast.
We bought Hong Kong chee cheong fun which is rice flour batter steamed with bbq pork and prawns and roast pork. The sauce was packed separately.
With the sauce and sambal paste added to the noodle.
Then add the crispy shallot and sesame.
Roast pork - RM10, next to the chee cheong fun stall.

Lunch
There is a new noodle stall in our area.
Hubby went to buy wat tan hor but was not available that day, so he ended up buying braised yee mee .
The extra sambal from breakfast pairs well with the braised yee mee.
Purplish black pear shaped eggplant or brinjal in my garden.
Eggplants are prone to pests especially the mealy bugs that stick to the underside of the leaves. To control them, I trim away the affected leaves.
That evening, I harvested 1 eggplant and 3 long beans to add to the curry dish.
Home cooked assam fish curry with mackerel (ikan kembung), pineapple, eggplant and long beans. The eggplant is nice and fleshy.
I pan fried the remaining luncheon meat with bacon (4 pieces).
Sauteed green vegetable with garlic and salt to taste.
Homely dinner for 2 people.
Found this pretty spider clinging onto a branch outside my house.
Can someone please help to identify this spider?

My ex-colleague and friend shared with me the following photos.

A bird nest with 2 eggs in my friend's garden.
Photo credited to Marie.
She doesn't know the name of the bird but she told me that it was a medium sized bird with white head. The snapshots were taken in May. The eggs have been hatched and the little birds have flew away leaving behind an empty nest.


Like a bird that fills her nest with young she has not hatched
and which will soon desert her and fly away,
so is the man who gets his wealth by unjust means.
Sooner or later he will lose his riches and
at the end of his life become a poor old fool.
(Jeremiah 17:11, The Living Bible-TLB)

  1. The Chee Cheong fun after u pour in the sauce looks like a soup dish. Can finish eating all the sauce or had to pour away remaining sauce after all ccf have been eaten?

    1. The sauce looks like a lot because I haven't mixed the ccf. Yes, I poured away the remaining sauce after I have eaten the ccf.

  2. Awesome shot of the spider! I wonder what bird that is - never seen bird's eggs this colour before. My girl planted some brinjal plants, yet to bear fruit. Hope hers will be as nice as yours. Love your first pic too, so serene.

  7. The sight of the chee cheong fun made my mouth water! So nice that you used your home grown veges for the vegetable curry. I have not seen such s pretty spider, I like the green color of its abdomen. I once had a bird nest on my Japanese bamboo tree with one egg in it. But when I came home, the nest was gone!

    1. There were few times when birds came to build their nests and lay eggs in my garden. But lately, I haven't seen any nest. I think because there are now less bushy plants in my garden.

  13. Yes I can Nancy. It's a dead spider. I hate spiders. I came out of my door and right next to me was a large spider. It matched the stone we have and it couldn't see it exceept suddenly it moved. As I said, I hate spiders and I jumped.

    Have a great weekend.

  15. I can't tell you the exact species of the spider, but it is a type of orb weaver, sometimes known as orchard spiders, probably in the family Tetragnathidae. Wonderful looking creature.

  21. Your friend took great photos of the birds nest! :) Your food all looks so good too and it's nice you are still able to enjoy your morning walks even if you have to wait until you are allowed to leave the house for them!

    Hope you are having a good weekend :) It's another chilly winter day here!

  22. I have tried but have been unsuccessful in identifying the bird based on the eggs in the nest. I don't have much reference material on nests and eggs of Asian species. Sorry.....
