Dim Sum Breakfast At Restoran Sun Kim Aik, Falim.

One day as we were passing by this restaurant, we noticed that this place has been given a new face lift. We remarked that we have not been to this restaurant for many, many years. This is Restoran Sun Kim Aik, in Falim and as we remembered, it is known for its fast selling big steamed bun "tai bao".

So one fine morning on a Saturday, found the five of us trying out the dim sum in this restaurant. The place now looks brighter, cleaner and more comfortable for the customers eating there.
First, we ordered 2 plates of bbq pork chee cheong fun with bbq pork (steamed rice rolls). The chee cheong fun were served with generous portion of sambal paste.
Deep fried Yam Puffs cut into halves.
Bean curd puffs stuffed with fish and meat paste.
We ordered one "tai bao" (big steamed bao), cut into quarters.
4 fishballs, (har kow) prawn dumplings and (siew mai) minced meat dumplings.
Fish balls and siew mai are popular dim sum items.
Deep fried prawn dumplings, best dipped into mayonnaise and chili sauce.
These bamboo steamers are better than metal steamers to keep the steamed bun piping hot.
We started our Malaysia Day celebration with a dim sum breakfast.

My Cameron Highlands Red Amaryllis Is Blooming.

On the first day of our recent Cameron Highlands trip, I bought a baby Red Amaryllis plant for only MYR 5. I already have the local Red Amaryllis in my garden but the flowers are smaller in size compared to the ones I bought from the highlands.
This is the Red Amaryllis that I bought in Cameron Highlands.
I left it alone for a few days to adjust to the lowland temperature before I transplanted it into a bigger pot.
My new Red Amaryllis plant with its first flower stalk.
From a small pot, I transferred it into a big shallow pot with good drainage soil. I water it once in every 2 to 3 days.
The appearing of the first two flowers.
I placed the pot away from direct sunlight.
The unfolding of the first two blooms.
First full bloom of my Cameron Highlands Red Amaryllis.
Followed by the second bloom.
With the morning sun shining on it, colour of the flowers tends to be more orange than red.
The flowers look so tall and elegant, held high on its tall stalk.
Can you see the difference between the Cameron Highland red Amaryllis (top picture) and the local red Amaryllis (bottom 2 pictures)? The petals from the C.Highlands Red Amaryllis are rounder and broader. The local flowers petals from my own garden are more tapered and slimmer. 
Three full blooms, one more to go.
I can't help but admire this beautiful flowers.

Everyone admires a man with good sense,

but a man with a warped mind is despised.
