Grilled Stingray For Dinner

The rainy season is here and we have been having rain almost daily. Moderate rain is good for my plants and it helps cut down on electricity bill.

Morning sky at 7:06am.
On the reverse side, misty hills.
Simple breakfast consisting of Chinese crullers, ma keok and black coffee.
These angled luffas were harvested from my garden 2 days earlier and I gave some to my sister and a friend. 2 luffas is enough to cook a dish for 2 people.
2 days later, I harvested the remaining luffas from the garden before I removed the vines.
The final harvest of angled luffas.
~~~~~
Rice and peanut porridge for lunch.
I almost forgot about the last few small taros in the fridge. They were still good and can be eaten. I boiled the small taros and removed the skin. Then I poured the leftover gravy from a dish over the taro. Boiled all 3 salted eggs because they have been sitting in the fridge for a long time.
~~~~~
Dine-in dinner in a food court.
It was only 5:20pm and not many people around.
I thought of ordering the pandan rice but there were people queuing up. Hubby ordered curry noodle (no photo to show).
Hubby ordered grilled stingray so I decided not to order any food for myself. I made a cup of milo for myself before I went to bed.

 The following photo was taken at the Antong Coffee Mill in Taiping.
Old fashioned grinding stones or pounding stones. Many of these are still in use. These were made from granite stones.


You cannot separate fools from their foolishness,
even though you grind them like grain with mortar and pestle.
(Proverbs 27:22, New Living Translation-NLT)

  5. I have porridge in my blogpost tomorrow. Hop over and have a look, eh?
    I also had ma keok that day - we call it ma ngee here in Foochow, horse's ears. Will blog about it too, coming soon.
    Wahhhhh!!! So many people in the queue, no physical distancing!!! Aiyorrrr!!!! I would run away quickly!!!
    I will order grilled sting ray at the Malay stalls here but I have never bought the fish to cook myself. They say there is an unpleasant smell if one does not know how to do it.

    1. That is why I didn't join the queue even though I wanted very much to buy from the stall. So far, this is the best grilled stingray fish we get to taste.

  7. Hmmmm, your breakfast looks very yummy!
    (And awww, I love rain)
    The luffas look a bit like our cucumber, what do they taste like? (ours a bit like... "nothing", LOL).
    The eggs look just perfect.
    You´d (maybe?) be surprised I have such a grinding thing right here.

    Good quote.

    1. Thank you, Iris. The luffa looks like cucumber but doesn't taste like cucumber. They are soft and sponge and sweet. Some homes still have the grinding stones.

  9. 3 salted eggs are a lot for two persons. Hopefully they are not that salty. Being able to grown one's own food is such an achievement. Well done to you! Are there any edible plants to you target to grow which you haven't planted yet?

  18. The cloudy sky in your first picture looks ominous! Heavy rain is on the way. I like a mild, quiet rain. Heavy rains and storms frighten me.
