Glutinous Rice, Chicken Curry & Herbal Pork Rib Soup

Last Saturday was a another hot and humid day. Usually, I only need to water my plants once in the morning but now I have to water them again in the afternoon. By then, most of them will be limp and looking half dead.

Morning sky at 7:30am.

Breakfast plus lunch
The first time we went to buy the yellow glutinous rice, we were told it was sold out. The yellow glutinous rice or nasi kunyit is only available on Saturdays and Sundays.
On this Saturday morning, hubby get to enjoy this yellow or turmeric glutinous rice.
Chicken curry to go with the yellow glutinous rice.
As for me, I decided to try the savoury glutinous rice and I requested for chicken curry too. This heavy breakfast last us till dinner. Both items with 2 portions of chicken curry cost RM10. 
Angled luffa hanging from their vines in my garden.
The fruiting season is ending and the vines will be removed soon.

Crossing of state borders has been lifted for those who have been fully vaccinated starting from the 11th October, 2021 (Monday). It is good to see the number of daily reported cases going down. I don't know how accurate is the figure reported. According to the relevant authorities, we have to learn to live with the virus and live life as normal as we can since the virus is not going to go away now or in the near future. No more MCO and no more recovery phases.

Currently, not all eateries are willing or ready to open up for dine-in yet. Many are waiting for situation to improve and for all their staffs to be fully vaccinated. Not everyone is confident to dine-in yet, preferring to have home cooked food or depend on food delivery.

Dinner on the 11th October.
I decided to cook herbal pork rib soup aka Bak Kut Teh in Hokkien.
My home cooked Bak Kut Teh using pork ribs, pork belly and Chinese herbs. I added tofu puffs and fresh abalone mushrooms. Hubby doesn't like the smell of cilantro so I used spring onions.
Blanched greens, drizzled with garlic oil, oyster and soy sauce.

The following are photos of a butterfly I found fluttering around in my garden.
I waited for it to settle and of all places, decided to cling to the underside of a leaf belong to the Ciku tree.
I have to bend to get these snapshots, trying not to frighten it off.
I managed to get a good image of the butterfly.
The butterfly decided to change location.
The underside of the butterfly is this brown colour.
The underside of the butterfly has a prettier design.
Nice view of the upside down butterfly.


But stopl using this phrase, 'prophecy from the LORD.'
For people are using it to give authority to their own ideas,
turning upside down the words of our God,
the living God, the LORD of Heaven's Armies.
(Jeremiah 23:36, New Living Translation-NLT)

  4. I would love that yellow pulut with curry but I am cutting down on pulut these days, starchy, hidden sugars. Gotta cut down on rice too so I wouldn't mind once in a very long while. You added mushrooms to your bak kut teh? Very generous with the garlic. Nice!

    1. The yellow rice taste like normal glutinous rice. The yellow colouring is from the turmeric powder.

  14. We are all tired of COVID and its restrictions, but I think there is a degree of truth to the opinion that we may just have to learn to live with it.

    1. Now it is up to individuals to take care and protect themselves from the virus. We have to learn self-discipline.

  16. It's good things are opening up for you although it's a shame there are still cases. We are lucky there are no cases here in Queensland so life is back to normal, but in the other states they have a lot of cases so it's hard for them to have the same freedom we do.

    That butterfly is so lovely too!

    Hope you had a good weekend :) We made the most of the nice sunny days after a rainy week, with a local market event and a morning at the park.
