Flowers And Critters From The Orchid & Rose Garden, Cameron Highlands

Just before checking out of the apartment, we wanted to visit another garden nearby. Only 4 of us were interested while the other 2 wanted to rest awhile in the apartment. It was almost 11 am and we used an umbrella and hat to protect us from the hot sun. This Orchid & Rose Garden is not visible from the main road, it was blocked by The Square building. It is within walking distance from the apartment. I took many snapshots of flowers and critters, and these are just a few of them to share on this post.

For only we who believe God can enter into his place of rest.

He has said, "I have sworn in my anger that those

who don't believe me will never get in,"

even though he has been ready and

waiting for them since the world began.

Breakfast At The New Kedai Kopi Macau, Taman Pertama

I woke up early but heard the sound of raindrops on the awning behind my house. I went to the washroom and then went back to sleep again. Can forget about the early morning walk.
By the time I unlocked the gate, it was about 7:10 am in the morning.
By then there was no raindrop and there was a bright sunrise.
 I was trying to capture the glowing clouds behind the rooftop opposite my house.
This was opposite side facing the sunrise.

We went to a new Kedai Kopi Macau (coffee shop) in Taman Pertama which a friend recommended to us. Address: 21, Lorong Taman Sembilan, Taman Pertama, Ipoh.
I ordered a bowl of curry noodle with a few stuffed ingredients.
I prefer my curry with yellow noodles.
Hubby's bowl of noodle with chicken claws, pig's stomach, intestines and white radish.
He prefers mixed noodles (flat rice noodle + yellow noodle)
We both ordered the bitter black Kopi O.

And by all means don't brag about being wise and good if you are bitter

and jealous and selfish; that is the worst sort of lie.

Simple Home cooked Dinner With Brinjals From My Garden.

There are days that I feel like cooking especially when I have some harvest from my garden. This particular day, I noticed 4 green brinjals hanging under the branches with the leaves covering them from my sight. If I hadn't bent down to take a peek under the branches, I would have missed these brinjals and possibly when they are found later, they would have been too matured to be eaten.
 4 tender green and white brinjals ready for our dinner.
 I took the lazy and easy way out. I didn't even peel off the skin which was a mistake. When we eat, we have to scrape the flesh away from the skin. I cut the brinjals lengthwise into quarters and steamed the brinjals. Before serving, I drizzled onion oil plus scallop sauce and sprinkled crispy fried onions over it.
 I bought a piece of tenderloin pork and thinking that it was a small piece, I use up the whole thing. I haven't been cooking regularly and looks like I over estimated the amount. This was too much for 2 people to finish. Ended up keeping more than half for the next day. The pork slices were marinated and pan fried. It was served with sweet and sour pickled onions and bird's chilies to make it more appetizing.

What a foundation you stand on now: the apostles and the prophets;

and the cornerstone of the building is Jesus Christ himself!
