ABC Ice Dessert, Roast Duck & Peanuts With Minced Meat Porridge

This year mid-autumn festival was on 21st September. For the past years my opposite neighbour celebrated this special day with a big gathering of family members, relatives and friends. Due to the pandemic, there was no celebration and everything was very quiet.

Sunrise on the morning of mid-autumn festival at 7:23am.
Hibiscus by the roadside.
Afternoon sky at 1:40pm.
On the reverse side, Kledang Hill.
Feeling thirsty, we bought cold dessert for lunch.
Cream corn, evaporated milk and sugar syrup with ice shaving for hubby.
ABC ice or mixed ice (ice kacang) with palm sugar for me.
Our simple dinner.
Peanut + minced meat porridge.
Stir fried kangkong (green veg) with shrimp paste (no photo).
We were blessed with the above roast duck by our neighbour just as we started on our dinner so thanks to our neighbour, it was not a simple dinner after all.
Sunset at 7:20pm.
That night a friend shared his mid autumn moon photos with us.
Moon photos credited to BKC.
Full moon (mid-autumn festival)
According to Chinese calendar, it is on 15th day of the 8th lunar month.
Beautiful golden moon.

He assigned the moon to mark the months
and the sun to mark the days.
He sends the night and darkness,
when all the forest folk come out.
Then the young lions roar for their food,
but they are dependent on the Lord.
(Psalm 104:19-21, The Living Bible-TLB)


  1. Here, it is just the beginning of autumn. Your moon photos are beautiful!

  2. My girl and I love duck. There is a very nice roast duck stall near my house but I seldom go and buy as the mum does not eat duck. Will buy a bit once in a long while for just the two of us.

    My missus plants her own kangkong, grows very fast - harvested once, replanted the stalks...and then, harvested again, replanted the stalks again - I think we've gone three rounds already.

    1. I also used the kangkong stalks to grow and they are now growing nicely.

  3. Sad what "Corinna" does to us.
    Great sunrise and... to find a Hibiscus by the roadside... wonderful!
    Your food! So not known here!
    Corn we have as Popcorn (salty is my version) or from the BBQ with butter! Hmmm.
    Peanuts in a normal meal?! We are so boring over here.

    Very cool moon pics!
    Have a great day!

    1. Thank you, Iris. I love popcorn too. Have a great day too.

  4. Your food is always so varied, and the roast duck looks yummy. I love adding nuts to meals, too. Lovely moon shots. Have a great day, Valerie

  5. Roast duck looks nice.
    The sunrise photo, lovely colours there.
    Hopefully next year your neighbour can celebrate.

  7. ...that hibiscus is a beauty, I've never seen one like that. Enjoy your day Nancy.

  8. I love to eat peanuts and minced meat porridge, so comforting. Sambal kangkong is one of my favorites. Yums!

    You chose a very appropriate bible verse that tie in with the moon and mid autumn festival. Thumbs up!

  9. Hi Nancy, I have an additional comment in your previous post, just to let you know.

    1. Thank you, Libby. I have read your additional comment. Is something wrong with your blog, I couldn't find your blog. I can only see the "Tuition by Ms Libby".

  10. Love the moon shots, Nancy. Delicious food!

  11. Love those frozen desserts. Yum! Interesting shots of the moon.

  12. Il cibo è molto invitante e le foto del paesaggio edella luna sono incantevoli!

  13. Beautiful sky and an amazing moon. Wow.

    I love all the food. You two eat so very well.

    Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday, Nancy. ♥

  14. Your abc looks so tasty. I think it is about one year that I didn't eat ABC. Did both of you share the two bowls of ice or just stick to your own bowl?

    1. I took a spoonful of hubby's ice jagung. Hubby stick to his own.

  15. Roasted Duck, I remember the place that Meilin & Al would take us to their special Chinese eatery. They always asked for the the duck and I always enjoyed the duck. Yum, yum.

  20. Covid has almost taken away the festival spirit, and I hope the situation doesn't last long. Great capture on the sunrise, skies, and hibiscus!

  21. Lovely images! have a wonderful week!

  22. Your friend has a very good camera. Can even see craters on the moon.

    You're serving the ice desserts on a plate haha. No bowl?

    1. Ha are very observant. Conveniently grab hold of the plates instead of bowls. Lol!

  23. Bonitas fotos de la luna. Besos.
