Siamese Laksa & Lobak (Ngoh Hiang)

This was last day of September. We were ready to start our morning walk, but first I want to take some snapshots of the sunrise.

Sunrise at 6:59am
7:05am
This was our breakfast.
Nasi lemak from the Mamak coffee shop at RM1.50
I ate the quarter portion of hard boiled egg because hubby doesn't like hard boiled egg.
This was my breakfast. A bit of this and that consisting of 1 siew bao, 1 piece of chempedak cake and 3 pieces of cream crackers to dip into my Bru coffee.
While I was in my garden, I noticed this cucumber leaf with rain droplets arranged nicely around the edge of the leaf. The rest of the leaf was dry. Isn't it amazing?
Then I saw another leaf with the same arrangement.
The other leaves were all dry, without any water droplet on them.
The day before, I placed order for 2 packets of Siamese Laksa and a box of lobak or ngoh hiang for our lunch. I have been craving for both Siamese Laksa and Assam Laksa for a long time. This husband and wife team had a stall but have since stopped operating the stall. Now, they are cooking for takeaway once a week, only available for Thursdays and Fridays.
On this particular week, they had Siamese Laksa @ RM7 per packet.
Assam Laksa will be available next week.
I joined their whatsapp list in order receive notifications from them.
6 pieces of Lobak or Ngoh Hiang in a box at RM15.
I sliced 2 pieces to eat with the Siamese Laksa and kept the rest in the fridge.
~~~~~
Lobak for Dinner.
To heat up the lobak, I pan fried them while I steamed the rice.
Home grown purple and green brinjals and long green okra stir fried with sambal dried shrimp.
I sliced the 4 remaining lobak and we were ready to enjoy our dinner.
Evening sky and sunset at 7:23pm.
It is good to say thank you to the Lord,
to sing praises to the God who is above all gods.
Every morning tell him, "Thank you for your kindness,"
and every evening rejoice in all his faithfulness.
(Psalm 92:1-2, The Living Bible-TLB)

  6. Never tried Siamese laksa. Is it anything like tom yam? My missus makes very nice ngor hiang but she has not made for a very long time now, dunno why. Nasi lemak looks good!

    1. Siamese Laksa has santan and chai por (pickled radish). I think making ngor hiang involves a lot of work.

  16. Are the cucumber leaves a bit hairy or waxy? Thinking that's why the water droplets don't cling on the body of the leaf. Pretty droplet formation.

    Mmm this couple's cooking look so good and you sliced the lobak so neatly too.

    1. The leaves are a bit hairy on the surface. Actually, I didn't sliced the lobak, I used scissors to cut them. Lazy to wash the cutting board.
