Birds Nestling In The Garden

We were thinking of having beef noodles for breakfast but were disappointed to find the shop closed for renovation. We drove on to another place near the Jelapang wet market to buy Hong Kong chee cheong fun (steamed rice rolls with filling).

We bought 2 portions of Hong Kong chee cheong fun with bbq pork and prawns for filling.
The sauce, sambal and toppings were packed separately.
We also bought some stuffed items from the next stall that sells economy noodles.

Simple lunch
Boiled potatoes and cauliflower salad with Kewpie roasted sesame dressing.
~~~~~
Takeaway dinner for 2 people.
Fried noodle for sharing.
2 pieces of fried chicken for sharing.

Thanks to my friend for the following photos.
One morning he noticed a bird moving in his Water Jasmine plant.
He zoomed in with his phone camera and saw this bird sitting in her nest.
When the mama bird was not around, he went near to check and saw 2 little eggs in the nest.
One day, he hear chirping coming from the Water Jasmine plant. He waited till mama bird was not around and he saw 2 little chicks napping in the nest.
The next time he went to look, they were awake.
This little one keeping an eye on him.
The next time he checked, the chicks were clothed with beautiful feathers.
They were so cute, my friend couldn't resist and he gently scooped up one chick to hold in his hand. The chicks looked calm and were not scared. Very soon, the chicks will be leaving their nest.
My friend googled and forwarded the above information to me.

Jesus asked, "How can I describe the Kingdom of God?
What story shall I use to illustrate it?
It is like a tiny mustard seed!
Though this is one of the smallest of seeds,
yet it grows to become one of the largest of plants,
with long branches where birds
can build their nests and be sheltered."
(Mark 4:30-32, The Living Bible-TLB)

  7. Pray that the two little birds will grow up big and strong and fly away to have their own nests. What is a water jasmine plant? I need to google for more info. Have a good weekend!
