Stuffed Fish, Pickled Fruit, Turmeric Rice & Black Chicken Herbal Soup

A morning without any sign of sunrise. We started our walk at about 7am.

Facing west, the Kledang Hill.
Gloomy sky.
~~~~~
Chinese art mural on the concrete wall of a Chinese school.
I sought my neighbour's help with the Chinese character.
The Chinese character means Sincere.
This one means filial.
On the way back, we stopped to buy fried noodle and pig's skin+long bean curry.
Economy fried noodle + curry + milo for hubby.
I picked and ate the long beans in the curry.
Toast + apricot jam + black coffee for me.
Midday sky at 12:50pm.
A friend came to pass me a tub of turmeric+coconut oil rice.
And a small tub of fruit pickle or acar buah in Malay.
It so happened that my neighbour bought 2 stuffed fish for us.
Heated up leftover steamed sour plum sauce pork rib.
Delicious and filling lunch for 2 people.
~~~~~
The friend who sent me the turmeric rice and fruit pickle forwarded the following photos from her garden.
Is this a Bromeliad/Guzmania?
Hope someone can help to identify this plant.

No rice for dinner since we had taken rice for lunch. Instead we had noodle.
Black chicken herbal soup with noodle.
Ending this post with an evening sky at 7:48pm.


But the good man - what a different story!
For the good man - the blameless, the upright,
the man of peace - he has a wonderful future ahead of him.
For him there is a happy ending.
(Psalm 37:37, The Living Bible-TLB)

  1. The fish looks so good. Hah!!! Black chicken! Extra nutritious! The only time I eat that is at some grand Chinese banquet, never cook it ourselves. You eat it with mee sua in the soup too? Just like we Foochows?

    1. Black chicken is rarely available. I happened to see the roadside stall selling chickens and this was the only black chicken left. Yes, I love mee sua. I was brought up in Sitiawan where I learned to love mee sua.

  4. Oh sumptuous food. So many items I like in this post.

    The black chicken is to be eaten too? You buy black chicken for health reasons or what? Sorry for weird questions hehe. Think I had this once during my confinement.

    1. Actually, I have no particular reason for buying the black chicken. We rarely get to see black chicken sold in my area, so when I saw one, I quickly bought it. Naturally for me, black chicken means for boiling herbal soup. The herbs used are not the heaty type.

  12. Yes it is a bromeliad, either Aechmea Zebrina or Aechmea Chantinii. I sometimes eat curry pork skin with ccf but no long bean. You don't eat pork skin?

  21. Yummy food you make and get from neighbors. How kind of them to do that. We had one day when there were clouds that covered the blue sky. Later it was more blue sky. I was hoping it would rain as we need it now! It's been warm and dry. The paintings on the concrete looks so nice! Take care and have a good weekend.
