Chee Cheong Fun With Shrimp Paste or Hae Ko

This was last Saturday. I am a week late in my posting.

Overcast sky at 7am.
Mist covered Kledang Hill - 7:03am.
Sun blocked by clouds - 7:20am.
A day with overcast sky.
~~~~~
Hubby missing his favourite steamed rice noodle (chee cheong fun) from Canning Garden.
We went to buy take-away 2 portions of chee cheong fun and 4 pieces of fried crunchy beancurd sheet.
Hubby's chee cheong fun with sesame seeds, fried crispy shallot + oil, and soy sauce. Later, all the pickled green chili will go to my plate.
I will usually order the same as hubby's chee cheong fun but this time I wanted to try adding some shrimp paste (hae ko in Hokkien). Penang version has a darker shrimp paste, this is a paler version.
We love to munch on these crunchy beancurd sheet.
Both chee cheong fun with or without shrimp paste taste great.

Simple lunch
Red dragon fruit, pear and few pieces of leftover stuffed items.
I remember the first time I ate a whole big red dragon fruit. I noticed my urine was reddish in colour and I thought there was blood in my urine. I was really worried and was thinking of going to the clinic. So relieved when I realized it was due to the dragon fruit and save me the trip to the clinic. The next day, the colour was back to normal.
Finally, we managed to clear the leftover stuffed items.
Pear for hubby because hubby doesn't like dragon fruit.
Fresh, sweet and juicy red dragon fruit.
A pretty moth on my Coleus.
This is my first time seeing this moth in my garden.


Don't hoard treasure down here where it gets eaten by moths
and corroded by rust or - worse! - stolen by burglars.
Stockpile treasure in heaven, where it's safe from moth
and rust and burglars. It's obvious, isn't it?
The place where your treasure is,
is the place you will most want to be, and end up being.
(Matthew 6:19-21, The Message-MSG)

  3. I prefer chee cheong fun with char siew...or shrimps. Dunno if I've tried it with har ko or not but I think I did have it once with sambal. Don't remember getting excited about it. Never tried fried crunchy beancurd sheet - nobody selling that here.

    1. I first tasted chee cheong fun with har ko in Penang. It is nice to have it once in a while but I still prefer the plan version.

  5. Your skies look like ours today, grey and heavy, but we don't have any mountains here. Your food looks good. The crunchy beancurd sounds lovely. I would like to try dragon fruits one day, I haven't seen them here yet. Have a wonderful weekend, Valerie

  6. Woah, what a sky!
    You have the "funniest" breakfast!
    I sure would be lost, food-wise, in your place!
    Those beancurd sheets look yum. Can you imagine my Bro at age.. 8 put something similar into the toaster? Took fire. I was to supervise him... Look away one sec...
    Your lunch looks yum! We had dragon fruit once, but reckon here in Germany... not as yum (in Perth, Western Australia, we get real mangoes etc, you cannot compare it to the crap we get here).
    Uh. We have nasty, tiny moths here, I don´t know why!
    Hope they don´t eat our socks made by Ingo´s late Granma!!!

  11. Hola, amiga Nancy. He buscado en varias ocasiones por mi ciudad la fruta del dragón, que estoy deseando probarla y nunca la encontré. Me han dicho que la venden y envían por internet, pero no me gusta porque no me ofrece garantías el pedir frutas frescas por este medio.
    El resto de comidas, como siempre tiene una pinta deliciosa.
    Me gustaría preguntarte, Nancy, porque desde que te visito jamás he visto vuestro cielo despejado de nubes y soleado, ¿que sucede?, porque yo que he viajado mucho, hasta en invierno en cualquier país, algún día sale el sol.
    Que disfrutes de un bonito fin de semana.

    1. Thank you, Manuel. I too prefer to check the fruits before I buy them and it is not possible if to buy online. Have a great new week.

  12. Ah, now I am tempted to eat ccf after reading your post. Yum yummy! I love eating ytf so can eat them daily. I think you both took 3 meals on 3 days to finish the ytf. Am I correct? The moth looks special. Seldom see moths around.

    1. You are very observant and have good memory. I shouldn't have added the fried sui kao. Instead of finishing the first batch of ytf in 2 meals, with the sui kao, we took 3 meals to finish.

  13. That's a really lovely looking moth.

  14. The sky is beautiful in your part of the world - so wide and full of drama. The food, as always, looks amazing.

  15. Hello Nancy,:=) What a great selection of food, and moody sky shots. Beetroot does the same as Red Dragon Fruit, gives you a nasty shock until you realise, the reason why.

  16. I ate dragon fruit once, but it was a white one. Great capture on the moth, and I loved your last week's overcast weather and mist mountains. Have a great Sunday

    1. We have both the white and red dragon fruits, but red is more common here.

  17. I always thought Dragon Fruit was white inside, with tiny black seeds...

  18. The mist looks so pretty in those first photos. And I think I've seen one of those moths here too!

  19. The tops of the hills peaking over the mist look very imposing. That's a fascinating moth!

  20. Haven't seen a moth for while now.
    Coffee is on and stay safe

  22. I am so tempted by the CCF that you had especially when it is loaded with pickled green chillies! That moth looks like an alien spaceship :)

  23. Wow! Those meals look delicious! Thanks for sharing.
    I hope you'll visit my blog soon. Have a nice day!

  24. It can be seen that you are truly a person who loves life. I wish you a happy day.

  25. Oh whereabouts is the Penang CCF from? I don't know of any place to get this in Ipoh - my mother has always been complaining she doesn't like the mushroom sauce version common there.

    Yeah funny about that dragonfruit. When my girl was just a toddler, I had a shock too upon noticing the redness in the toilet.
