Stewed Pork Rib And Brown Rice Porridge For Dinner.

This dinner is about 2 weeks ago. The previous night I look into the freezer to check on the stock. I took out a packet of frozen pork rib and place it in the lower shelf of the fridge to defrost. I intended to buy some green vegetables on the way back from breakfast the next morning but I totally forgot about it.

So when it was time to prepare dinner, I realized too late that there was no vegetable for dinner. Since I have already defrosted the pork rib and hubby said that it is okay with just one dish, I went ahead to stew the pork rib.

While the pork rib was being stewed, I boiled brown rice porridge.
Very easy. Just brown rice and water to cook the porridge.

I love Teochew porridge with savoury dishes and this stewed pork rib is one of them. 

 Hubby likes his porridge mixed with the gravy from the stewed pork rib.
I enjoyed this type of one dish dinner. Just nice for lazy people like me. Lol!

A Visit To The Fig Farm, Perak.

Last week we had prayer meeting in my house and a friend was telling me how she found the Fig Farm which we have been trying to locate. She not only found the farm but she also visited it and bought an avocado plant, a fig plant and a durian plant. This friend loves gardening and she has land behind her house to plant the fruit trees.

I was curious and also interested to visit the farm. We planned a trip there 2 days later and last Thursday morning, I drove to Batu Gajah where my friend stays to pick her and another friend. The 3 of us have the same interest and love for gardening. I don't know about my 2 friends but I kept telling myself not to be compulsive in buying the plants. I know my weakness so I have to keep reminding myself. Lol!

Together with my friends, I drove from Batu Gajah to Simpang Pulai with my friend directing the way. Though I have been on the same route before, I am still not very familiar when it comes to certain junction.
 This is the Fig Farm with the colourful bougainvillea flowers.
 Entrance to the Fig Farm. It is very near to the main road leading to Cameron Highland.
 It was a bright, sunny day. And this is a very welcoming sight.
 Directly opposite the Fig Farm is the Simpang Pulai Balai Bomba (Fire Station).
Most of these Fig plants are already bearing fruits.
There are many species of fig plants here.
Fig plants as low as this are fruiting.
I have to squat to take this snapshot of the figs.
 Look at these! They are with fruits! 
These plants are not cheap and I was very tempted.
 Especially when I see all these fruits on the plants and they are fruiting even grown in pots.
Black Pepper plants are also on sale.
There are also grape plants and this one is fruiting.

 She also bought this Fig plant on her first trip.
Before sending my friends home, we had a simple Ban Mee lunch at a coffee shop diagonally opposite the Pusing town Police Station.

I didn't return home empty handed but bought the following plants from the Fig Farm.
I bought 2 Brinjal (Eggplant) seedlings.
I also bought a Petai (Stinking Bean) plant. 
And finally, I bought a small Fig Plant. I was told this is the Brunswick Fig.
 I especially hope to see these plants grow healthy and bear lots of fruits.

Choosing The Right Dresses For Different Occasions.

I think women of today are very fortunate. We no longer need to go out to shop for materials and have a tailor sew our dresses for us. Tailors are scare nowadays and even if we can find a good one, the fees will be very expensive. We used to complain about the tailoring fees being more expensive than the cost of the materials we bought for our dresses. Even after paying the high fees, there were times when the dresses sewed were not according to the designs we have chosen. Sometimes, we found that the dresses sewed were of the wrong measurement and couldn't fit us.
We can now go to any shopping malls or step into any boutiques to pick whatever dresses we like, pay for them and go home happily with the ready made dresses, ready to wear for whatever functions we bought them for. For those who are familiar with online shopping, we are easily accessible to the wide selection of dresses displayed by many fashion websites. Just search for women fashion on google and we will get a long list of websites and very likely StyleWe will be one of those listed.
