Beef With Ginger & Spring Onions (Keong Choong Ngau)

The day started with the following morning sky shot.

Sunrise at 7:28am.
Our morning walk takes us this way but this is the first time I noticed these knobs on this tree trunk. What do you see? It looks like a face to me.
Taken from another angle.
This one looks like another face to me.
What about you? What do you see?
~~~~~
Home cooked dinner for 2.
I had another portion of marinated beef slices in the fridge. I used the beef slices to cook with young ginger slices and spring onions aka "keong choong ngau".
Sauteed napa cabbage + carrot with garlic and salt.
2 dishes with some steamed rice for dinner.
Do you remember these old wall switches which we used to switch on and off the lights and fans? We can still see these old faithful switches in use in some of the older houses and shops.

Linking to Happy Tuesday, Image-in-ing & Tuesday's Treasures.

O Lord, don't hold back your tender mercies from me!
My only hope is in your love and faithfulness.
(Psalm 40:11, The Living Bible-TLB)

  4. YES! I see the nose! A chin. And eyes - great find!
    Bertiebo might like this - she collects faces.

    The second looks like a bear to me. One ear up, one down, cute. The nose, the mouth, all there.

    Your food looks yummy again. Need to buy ginger!!

    Why, yes. I think I do remember such switches, but from Australia, not Germany.

  5. Yes, haven't seen those old school switches for such a long time. Your beef dish looks good - I guess there is no problem getting fresh beef there - here, we have to buy the imported Australian and New Zealand beef, most of the time as tough as leather and not cheap!!! That's one interesting tree trunk there!

    1. For fresh beef, we have to go to the main wet market in town. So I usually buy some extra to keep in the freezer. The beef is nice and tender.

  10. I think my childhood house still has these light switches. The knobs on the tree frightens me because they look like cancerous tumours on humans. I like the napa cabbages n carrots dish the best. How do you decide during dinner to eat rice or not? Cos for beef dish n napa cabbages I wouldn't eat any rice.

    1. It is easy. It depends on whether we want to eat rice or not.

  19. The knots on the tree look like a gnome to me, also. Those old light switches were so sturdy, they seem to last almost forever if not replaced for a more modern look.

    The cabbage looks so good!
