Fried Noodle For Dinner At Restoran Wai Wai Ipoh

This was a Sunday evening. There is a new place in Ipoh Garden that many has been talking about and has been receiving mostly good reviews. The only drawback is the waiting time. Someone suggested that we should go and check out this new place. We reached the place at about 6:35pm.

Just as expected, the place was full. Since there were only 4 of us, we didn't have to wait long for a table.
We were given a table right in front of the entrance. We gladly took our seats and we were told that the waiting time for the food will take quite awhile.
We didn't mind the wait as our tummies were not growling with hunger yet. Lol!
The first dish to arrive at our table: Crunchy fried small fishes dipped in batter with Thai chili sauce as dipping sauce. This will keep us occupied while waiting for the next dish.
We enjoyed munching on the above. Some were crunchy while some were not quite crunchy. Probably needed more frying.
Flat rice noodle & crispy fried rice vermicelli in egg gravy (wat tan).
If I am not mistaken, this is Claypot Sang Mee.
It tasted more or less like the wat tan noodle above.
And the last was this fried rice vermicelli.
We ordered small portion for all the noodles. Somehow, the 4 of us managed to finish what we ordered. I don't have the receipt so I am not able to share the price of the food.

Haven't you yet learned that your body is the home
of the Holy Spirit God gave you, and that he lives within you?
Your own body does not belong to you.
For God has bought you with a great price.
So use every part of your body to give glory back to God
because he owns it.
(1 Corinthians 6:19, The Living Bible-TLB)

Lakeview In Kampar & Homeward Bound

After Prawn Village in Tanjung Tualang, we drove to Kampar. 

It was still early and we were not ready to go home yet.
Blue sky and white clouds.
We reached Kampar Westlake at about 2pm.
We stopped to snap some photos.
I have been here a few times when my sons were studying here. This is a nice place for the students to gather and loiter here especially in the evening.
We wanted to have ice-kacang or shaved ice dessert in one of the shops in Kampar town but found the shop closed. So we decided to drive straight back to Ipoh.
Sign by the roadside.
Passed by a petrol station. Dark cloud looming over us. Later there was a heavy downpour but stopped before we reached home.
I bought the above snack from Tanjung Tualang.
I bought 2 packs. 1 plain and 1 with black sesame.
This used to be our favourite childhood biscuits, folded into a triangle.
There used to be a folded paper inside the triangles but only a few with coins.
We kids are more interested in getting the coin than eating the biscuits. Those were the days. These days, these biscuits no longer have any coin inside.
Since it was still early when we reached home, I had time to boil plain rice porridge for dinner.
I had some leftover pork cooked with belimbing buluh or Averrhoa bilimbi fruits.
I opened a packet of preserved vegetable with peanuts.
The amount is just enough for 2 people.
A simple and light dinner after a sumptuous lunch in Tg Tualang.

 Come to me and I will give you rest -
all of you who work so hard beneath a heavy yoke.
Wear my yoke - for it fits perfectly - and let me teach you;
for I am gentle and humble, and you shall find rest for your souls;
for I give you only light burdens.
(Matthew 11:28, The Living Bible-TLB)

For whatever God says to us is full of living power:
it is sharper than the sharpest dagger,
cutting swift and deep into our innermost thoughts and
desires with all their parts, exposing us for what we really are.
(Hebrews 4:12, The Living Bible-TLB)

Animal Murals Part 1, Prawn Village, Tanjung Tualang

There are many wall murals in the Prawn Village, Tanjung Tualang. I have divided them into 2 parts.  Part 1 includes the following wall murals with panda bears, birds, dragonfly, and butterflies.

#1 - Panda Bears
#2 - These look like house sparrows.
#3 - Birds and butterflies
#5 - Glass reflection
I don't know whether this is a hawk or an eagle.
Reflection of 2 busy photographers.
This is the whole mural consisting of #2 to #9.

Linking to Monday Mural.

The whole Bible was given to us by inspiration from God
and is useful to teach us what is true and
to make us realize what is wrong in our lives;
it straightens us out and helps us do what is right.
(2 Timothy 3:16, The Living Bible-TLB)
