Hokkien Prawn Noodle, Hor Hee Noodle & Pan Mee

There was no walking exercise for a few days after I hurt my back while shifting a flower pot in the garden. I am thankful that it was not serious and all I needed was a day of rest. By the 2nd day, I was feeling much better and was able to go back to the garden to finish the weeding. All the time I have to avoid moving any big flower pots.
Morning sky at 7:40am.
 Hubby wanted to have breakfast in Menglembu at Restoran Meng Meng Kee.
Chinese Tea for hubby and herbal tea for me.
Hor Hee noodle for hubby.
He asked for transparent or glass noodle (tong fun).
Hokkien prawn noodle (rice vermicelli or beehoon) for me.
~~~~~
Both of us needed to buy walking shoes so we went to town.
After that we had lunch at Kedai Makanan Sun Seng Fatt. 
We were just in time to order our favourite pan mee (soup version) before they ran out of their soup.
After I have retired, I seldom get to eat this pan mee. The bowl of noodle came with generous serving of meat balls, fish paste balls, fried anchovies, green and egg with runny yolk.
~~~~~
No cooking that evening, so we ate whatever we had in the fridge.
We had kompia and milo for dinner.
Reheated the last 5 pieces of Sitiawan kompia given by hubby's friend.
I mistaken the dwarf long bean seeds for the normal long bean seeds. No wonder these dwarf plants are not climbing like the usual long bean vines.
These dwarf long bean plants are in the midst of producing long beans.
Harvested the long beans and a green brinjal or eggplant.
This mural is painted on the side wall of Ho Yan Hor Museum in Ipoh old town. The mural  shows a typical tin mining scene with the tin dredge and limestone hills in the background and workers in the foreground.
This black and white mural is painted by Ernest Zacharevic, a Lithuanian artist based in Penang.

Linking to Monday Mural.

Then what can we boast about doing to earn our salvation?
Nothing at all. Why?
Because our acquittal is not based on our good deeds;
it is based on what Christ has done and our faith in him.
So it is that we are saved by faith in Christ and
not by the good things we do.
(Romans 3:27-28, The Living Bible-TLB)

  3. Aha!!! So that is what the Sitiawan kompia looks like. Very different from ours here. I like the look of the Hokkien prawn noodle, makes me crave for the Penang har mee.

    1. This is just one type of kompia. There are other varieties. Some have meat and onion filling, some have sweet filling and sesame on the pastry, and some are just plain without any filling. We just to fill the plain kompia with cruchy fried lard. That was how we ate when we were kids.

    1. Thank you, PH. Now have to be extra careful when shifting flower pots in the garden. Thankful that it was only a minor one without me having to take pain killer. I just rubbed with some oil.

  11. Those are very respectable long beans. Guess the dwarf part refers to the plant and not its beans.

    1. Your are right Stacy. The plant is dwarf but the beans are still long.

    1. Thank you, David. Yes, it is true. A bad back seldom heals completely. Have to be really careful now.

  15. Please take good care of yourself! Fingers crossed you recover fully. All the Hokkien Prawn Noodle, Hor Hee Noodle & Pan Mee look very tasty but I can only eat half a bowl, must share. The drwaf long bean looks like normal long beans and not short. Correct?

    1. Thank you, Mun. If I am hungry I can finish 1 bowl by myself. Sometimes I will ask for less noodle. Yes, the bean is long. Only the plant is short.

  21. The murals are lovely. Look after your back you only have one!! I broke mine at 16 so I have spent most of my life trying not to do something daft but I also pick up things that are too heavy sometimes - not a good idea. Keep well Diane

  22. You need to hire a young back to do the pot moving so you can keep growing those beautiful vegetables.

    Nice murals.

    That's a lovely mural and is perfect for that museum.
