Dinner At Restoran Makanan Laut Sungai Wang, Kampung Simee, Ipoh

When I unlocked the gate on this particular morning, I noticed the sky on my right was very different. I took these snapshots before I got into the car, going for our early morning walk.
The time was 7.00 am.
A fiery sunrise.
At the recreational park at 7.18 am
We had prawn noodles in Menglembu that morning.
I requested for extra spicy paste for my prawn noodle.
Looking at this makes me hungry!
Evening sky at 6.20 pm.
Going to Kg. Simee for our dinner.
Steamed Tilapia with Assam sauce.
Stewed pork rib with yam (taro) in clay pot.
This is worth a return trip.

Our friend who doesn't eat bitter gourd, ate and enjoy this dish!
Overall, it was a good dinner for 4 people.

Say just a simple 'Yes, I will' or 'No, I won't.'

Your word is enough.

To strengthen your promise

with a vow shows that something is wrong.

Enjoying Lunch & Dinner With Friends

It was on a Monday and I had some ironing to do. I usually don't take lunch but on this particular afternoon, I felt like going out for lunch. I whatsapped a friend to find out whether the place in Jelapang is opened for business but I didn't receive any reply. As I continued with the ironing, I changed my mind and thought of eating something else. 

Later, the friend that I had earlier whatsapped, called me on the phone to invite me to join her in Jelapang. I informed her that I have changed my mind and wanted to eat something else but she persistently invited me to join her. It is not good to reject a sincere invitation and so, hubby and I drove to Jelapang to join our friend. 
 Hubby and I ordered porridge and two types of ready cooked dishes.
 This is one of my favourite dish - eggplant cooked with minced pork.
 Stewed sweet sour pig's trotter with white radish.
 Our friend ordered this blanched chicken and insisted that we should try this. Initially, we thought we couldn't finish the dishes but as we chatted, we picked on the food till we finished everything. Good thing, the watery porridge was not very filling.
Our friend also personally ordered this cup of white coffee for us to try.
Thank you, friend for treating us lunch and coffee.
 This is where we had our lunch - Restoran Choy Jie.
It is next to the wet market and near to the police station. 
 Saw this wall fence in front of the eatery.
Very unique wall fence made of colourful mosaic tiles.
Next time, hope to get a closer snapshot of the mosaic tiles.
 A bright, cheery bloom from my own garden.
 My Bauhinia kockiana plant is in full bloom.

That evening we had a dinner appointment with a young lady.
We had a delicious curry fish head and noodle dinner.
After dinner, this young lady friend treated us coffee at one of the MacDonald's outlet. I didn't know MacDonald serves nice coffee. I wouldn't mind coming back again to enjoy the coffee.

In heaven a crown is waiting for me, which the Lord,

the righteous Judge, will give me on that great day of his return.

And not just to me but to all those whose lives show

that they are eagerly looking forward to his coming back again.

My Garden Basil Grown From Seeds

The first batch of Basil plants in my garden were all grown from cuttings. I used to grow a few types of Basil including the Sweet Basil. My son only uses the Sweet Basil for his cooking but not the Thai Basil or other Basil that has very strong smell. I don't use Basil leaves for cooking because hubby doesn't like any kind of Basil. I also gave up growing Basil but somehow, I kept one pot growing in my garden to bless my friends.
The above is the only remaining pot of Basil from the earlier batch. Usually I will cut off the flowers to encourage more leaves and this round I discarded the flowers onto 2 pots, hoping to get rid of the tiny snails that were eating my leafy green vegetables.
And these are the Basil plants that sprouted from the discarded flower seeds that I scattered onto these 2 flower pots.
Last week, before meeting my friend for breakfast, I cut some Basil leaves for her.
All cut and nicely wrapped and packed to give my friend but then I forgot all about it. I left it on my dining table. I finally get to pass a fresh bunch of basil to her when she dropped by one day.

And why worry about your clothes? Look at the field lilies!

They don't worry about theirs.

Yet King Solomon in all his glory are not clothed as

beautifully as they.
