Lunch With Golden Girls At Restoran Lan heong Yuen.

We read about this restaurant written in an article and we were curious to try the food. This restaurant serves 3 types of meat i.e. roasted duck, chicken, pork, and bbq pork. You can order the meat to eat with rice or noodle. As usual, we wanted to try a bit of everything.
We ordered a mixed plate of bbq pork, roast pork, chicken & duck for 4 people. These were served with 2 types of dipping sauce.
Plain noodle with a bit of greens to go with the meat.
The noodle tastes good.
Nice minced pork wantons.
We ordered 4 baked "Suet San" pork buns (snow mountain buns).
These are special pork buns, different from the usual pork buns.
We also ordered 4 Baked Australian Cheese Tarts.
We have mixed reviews about these tarts. Some of us do not like the soft creamy texture of the filling. For me, I don't mind the creamy texture.
You take a bite and the creamy cheese filling flows out.
4 types of meat on the wall.
Snow mountain pork buns and cheese tarts.
Types of noodles on the wall.
They also served the rice and noodles in different versions.
For noodles, they have the dry and soup versions.

 Fido, my hairdresser's pet dog.
 He has moods. Sometimes he will greet me with barks.
At other times, he can be very friendly.
One morning, we were following behind this car and this cheeky kitty was sticking its tongue at us. The owner of the car painted the wiper to look like the cat's tail. It would be fun to see the kitty moving its tail.
A friend passed us some peacock fishes. These are mostly female fishes and we have never seen such big peacock fishes. These are well fed fishes.

But for you who revere my name,

the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its rays.

And you will go out and frolic like well-fed calves.

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.

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.

Home Cooked Roasted Pig's Trotter With Salted Vegetable Soup

I have decided to cook on this particular day. I had to use up the okra or ladies fingers that were harvested from my garden and were sitting in the refrigerator. Hubby conveniently suggested that I cook soup. This is one of our family's favourite soups - the salted vegetable (hum choy or kiam chye) with roasted pig's trotter.

After our morning walk and breakfast, hubby stopped at the wet market for me to buy the roasted pig's trotter, salted vegetable, carrots and tomatoes.
This is my own version of the roasted pig's trotter with salted vegetable soup. The ingredients I used for the soup were roasted pig's trotter, salted vegetables (soaked to remove the saltiness), carrot, big onions, tomatoes, dried chilies, peppercorns and preserved sour plum. It is an appetizing soup.
And this was how I cooked my okra or ladies fingers. I steamed and then sprinkled some garlic oil.
Next, I dolloped some oyster sauce onto the ladies finger before serving. We each had a bowl of soup and the ladies fingers for dinner without eating any rice.

I took snapshots of these water feature after we finished our dinner at the Classic Dining Restaurant one evening.
 This water feature is placed right in front of the restaurant.

And now you have become living building-stones

for God's use in building his house.

What's more, you are his holy priests; so come to him -

you who are acceptable to him because of Jesus Christ -

and offer to God those things that please him.
