Savoury Glutinous Rice With Chicken Curry & Lui Cha Pan Mee

We started our morning walk early. No sign of sunrise, probably another cloudy day.

Breaking of dawn at 6:50am.
After morning, we drove to Menglembu to buy breakfast because hubby wanted to eat yellow glutinous rice with chicken curry.
We were told that the yellow or turmeric glutinous rice (nasi kunyit) was sold out. Hubby settled for the savoury glutinous rice and the chicken curry and was charged only RM5.
Hubby's breakfast.
We drove back to our own area and I bought the above Lui Cha Pan Mee aka Thunder Tea Pan Mee. The green soup is made from blended herbs e.g. basil and etc.
I added the lui cha soup and ingredient to the noodle.
I enjoy this noodle but its a no, no for hubby.
I harvested the above green brinjals and okra to add to the fish curry for dinner.
I spotted this big grasshopper clinging onto this green brinjal.
On another morning I saw this clinging onto the pole I used to support the brinjal plant.
I think it is the same one that was clinging onto the brinjal.
This is the 2nd portion of the fish curry that I ordered for the previous day dinner. I added in the brinjals and okra.
Remaining lettuce with roasted sesame dressing.
Delicious dinner for 2 people.
No need to sweat in the kitchen.
This was my okra plant when it started to bear okras.
It is now about 4 months old and it has grown very tall and the okras getting smaller. I shortened the okra plant. New branches appeared sideways and are now bearing okras.
Again I saw the grasshopper feeding on the okra leaf.
I zoomed in for a closer look.
It looks like an alien from outer space.


The Lord says: Be fair-minded. Do what is right!
Help those in need of justice! Quit your evil deeds!
Protect the rights of aliens and immigrants, orphans and widows;
stop murdering the innocent!
(Jeremiah 22:3, The Living Bible-TLB)

  7. I would love turmeric glutinous rice (nasi kunyit) with curry. Had that at a nyonya stall at SS2 once, so very very nice. The savoury glutinous rice looks good too. Yes, I love brinjal and okra in fish curry...and pineapples too.

  14. I doubt I would have spotted the grasshopper. He is good at the art of camouflage. The food looks wonderful!

    1. I was able to spot it because it moved. If it hadn't moved, I wouldn't know that it was there.

  15. I had a dinner called " Shangai Noodles " and it had the same noodles with shrimp, chicken & beef. It was very good but it filling. Because there was so much, I'm having the rest for lunch today.

  25. That grasshopper is gigantic! Love your brinjal okra curry. I just ate brinjal okra curry too to finish up the cheese curry gravy by adding veges. Cannot go wrong with brinjal and okras in curry gravy. What is your plan for that giant grasshopper?
