Home Grown Ginger & Lobak With Instant Noodle

This was the 9th day of Chinese New Year. Our sons have gone back to work.

Morning sky at 7:40am.
That morning, I harvested ginger from one of the 2 pots. I also harvested 2 green brinjals (eggplants) and 1 long ladies finger (okra).
All these ginger were from 1 single pot.
I washed the ginger, wrapped with kitchen paper tissue, place in a plastic bag and kept in the fridge until I want to use them for cooking.
~~~~~
For dinner, I took out the frozen ngoh hiang (lobak) to thaw before I reheated them in the oven.
I cooked plain instant noodle for 2 people.
I also added blanched napa cabbage and some long beans (from my garden). I seasoned the plain instant noodle with garlic oil, oyster and soy sauce.
Ngoh hiang, napa cabbage and instant noodle for our dinner.
That morning we went out to the bank in Ipoh old town. This is the Overseas Chinese Banking Corporation's (OCBC) main branch.
The Straits Trading Building has been listed as one of the Heritage buildings in Ipoh.
 Information concerning the Straits Trading Building is carved on the above marble plaque.
OCBC's main branch occupies the Straits Trading Building.

before building your house.

  1. I've never tried growing ginger, serai, lengkuas, kunyit only. We still have some ngor hiang in the freezer, left over from Chinese New Year. So sick of the food already - my missus should not have cooked so much since we did not have an open house this year.

    1. Yes, we do get sick and tired eating the same kind of food especially eating it every day wanting to finish off the food. I too have made the same mistake but now have learned to cook smaller portions.

  4. Hello Nancy, You never cease to amaze me with what you can grow in pots, I buy fresh ginger and egg plant from our local market. I don't know what vegetables Ladies finger are, but they look a bit like celery!

    The Straits Building Company where your bank is, is an impressive building. It's history is also interesting.

  14. Wow! You are really good at Home Growing vegetables. So much Ginger from a flower pot, not even growing them in the ground. Can please write a tutorial on how to plant ginger in a pot? Since we all don't know how to, like what TM wrote above, he tried but didn't succeed. Lobak With Instant Noodle sounds tasty.

    1. Just use any old ginger with new shoots coming out of it. Most important is make sure that the soil in the pot has good drainage to avoid root rot. That is all.

    1. After growing my own edibles in my garden, I have learned to appreciate our farmers for their hard work. I also understand why they need to used pesticides even though it is not good for our health.
