Steamed Buns, Glutinous Rice In Lotus Leaf & Father's Day Treat

This was Monday, a day after Father's Day. I thought of cooking something special for Father's Day but hubby told me to keep it simple.

Sunrise at 7:35am
Sunrise at 7:40am

On our way home from morning walk, we detoured to the Dim Sum Restaurant to buy steamed buns for breakfast and for lunch.
Hubby didn't want steamed bun so he bought fried economy noodle from the roadside stall. I ate the "kai woh pau" which is steamed bun with a layer of glutinous rice at the bottom.
My breakfast with 2-in-1 black coffee.
Inside of the "kai wor pau".
Steamed bun with chicken and mushroom filling on top of a layer of glutinous rice.

Lunch
We had lunch with warm honey lemon drink.
Glutinous rice wrapped in dried lotus leaf.
Glutinous rice inside the lotus leaf.
Steamed bun or "san yuk pau".
This is hubby's favourite steamed bun.

Our friend called up to inform me that she has ordered fried noodles and the noodles will be delivered to my address. Its a belated Father's Day treat for hubby.
Father's Day dinner which could easily feed 4 people.
I had already boiled soup.
"Wat tan hor" - 1 portion.
Flat rice noodle with thick egg gravy.
Fried rice vermicelli or beehoon - 1 portion.
Blanched beansprout.
Meatballs in clear soup.
Sambal belacan for the noodles.
My friend took advantage of the special promo by Tuck Kee Restaurant.
We realized that the food plus the soup was too much for us so we decided to keep the soup for next day. We managed to finish most of the food except for half of the fried noodle.

A friend sent me the following photos of an iquana that visited her brother's back yard.

Thank you, dear friend for sharing these photos.


Our earthly fathers trained us for a few brief years,
doing the best for us that they knew how,
but God's correction is always right and for our best good,
that we may share his holiness.
Being punished isn't enjoyable while it is happening - it hurts!
But afterwards we can see the result,
a quiet growth in grace and character.
(Hebrews 12:10-11, The Living Bible-TLB)

  27. Good thing you didn't try to eat all the food haha. Oh the fatness of those bean sprouts. With all the foodstuff nowadays flying in from countries far away, KL still has only skinny long sprouts.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The fat beansprouts is due to the underground water which is different from KL's.
