Dim Sum Breakfast & Chempedak Fruit

This was a Saturday morning with cloudy sky.

Sunrise blocked by clouds 7:40am
7:45am
After morning walk, we walked over to the Dim Sum Restaurant to buy breakfast.
Yam puff (top) and century egg + pickled ginger roll.
2 fish balls and 2 steamed buns (sang yuk pau).
~~~~~
In the afternoon, hubby came to know of an elderly friend who was stuck at home. She is staying alone with her grandson and they don't have transport to go out to buy foodstuffs.
The nearby shops where she used to get her foodstuffs have covid cases and she is afraid to go out.
So, off we went to get some foodstuffs for her.
Half way, we stopped at a durian stall to get some durians for her because she loves durians.

I forgot to snap photos of the durians and chempedak.
The durians were for the elderly friend and this chempedak was for us.
These were the fruits from inside the chempedak.
The flesh was thick and sweet.
This was our home cooked dinner for 2 people.
I cooked steamed minced pork with egg, fried 2 pieces of fish and blanched one green vegetable.
My Chinese chives are flowering again.


He is like a father to us,
tender and sympathetic to those who reverence him.
For he knows we are but dust and that our days are few and brief,
like grass, like flowers, blown by the wind and gone forever.
(Psalm 103:13-16, The Living Bible-TLB)

  1. So nice and helpful of you and your hubby to get foodstuffs and durians for the elderly friend. That is the Kampong spirit that has been fading for us urban dwellers living in pigeon holes.

  2. So kind of you and your hubby to lend a hand, may God bless you two abundantly.

    I saw some yam puffs at one place here but they look so ugly so I did not buy. My girl loves eating those. Hopefully, I can get hold of some nice ones soon. Century egg roll? Never seen that before. Sure would want to try - I love century egg.

  17. You are such kind hearts helping out an elderly friend. It is so difficult for many who have no phamily or transportation. The foods you showcase here are quite interesting and I am always happy to learn of new things. Have a great weekend.

  18. You and your husband are very kind to help your friend with her food supplies. I have never heard of Durians. I would think they are not available in the UK.
