Christmas Cactus Growing In My Garden.

I bought a pot of Christmas Cactus during our 2D1N stay in Cameron Highland in August (about 2 months ago). When I bought the plant, there were flowers buds and when I reached home, the buds took turn to bloom. The flowers were a beautiful sight!
 It has such a lovely bright pink colour.
If this plant grows well, I may try to collect more colours.
 The flowers are all gone now but new succulent leaves are growing. Hoping to see some flower buds soon. I must keep reminding myself not to over water my plant.
 The baby orchid plant that my friend gave me has started to flower.
The flowers are quite small and it is purplish/pinkish in colour.
Isn't my Aglaonema Pink Lady a beauty? It is now showing off its colourful leaves.

Don't be concerned about the outward beauty that depends

on jewelry, or beautiful clothes, or hair arrangement.

Be beautiful inside, in your hearts, with the lasting charm

of a gentle and quiet spirit that is so precious to God.

Breakfast With Friends At Lim Ko Pi, Ipoh Old Town.

One day during our conversation, our friend mentioned that he has not been to Lim Ko Pi. So one fine Saturday, we introduced our friends to Lim Ko Pi in Ipoh old town. The management of Lim Ko Pi provides free parking at the opposite empty shop lot for their customers.

There are 2 value breakfast sets:

Set A - 1 curry noodle + 1 cup coffee or tea @ MYR5
Set B - 1 cup coffee or tea + 2 half boiled eggs + 2 pieces toasted bread with butter and kaya @ MYR10.
Here are 2 value breakfast sets A & B
Hubby and I shared these 2 breakfast sets.
Our friends (husband and wife) also ordered the sets A & B to share.
These were first brought to our table, 2 sets of toasted bread, coconut jam (kaya) and butter.
Then came the coffee and the curry noodle.
Followed by the 2 half boiled eggs, cracked into a glass cup. This taste great with a few dashes of white pepper powder and some light soy sauce.
A bowl of thick creamy curry noodle with lots of ingredients.
A bowl of cendol - cold sweet dessert.
We shouldn't have ordered this but we did!
And we ordered not only 1 bowl but 2 bowls for 4 people!
Total cost of breakfast for 4 people = MYR 39.
 A photo for sweet memory. Lol!
The lovely, loving couple.
We were seated in one of the two mini gardens setting.
Nice display of indoor plants.
Antique wooden table and stand.

Breakfast At Restoran Nam Chau White Cofee, Menglembu.

On this particular morning, after we have finished the morning walk at the recreational park, we went to look for breakfast. We were surprised to find a few of our usual breakfast shops closed. Since we were near to Menglembu, hubby thought of Nam Chau curry noodle. It has been a long time since we last ate curry noodles at Nam Chau.

As we entered the restaurant, we saw an ex-colleague of mine having breakfast with her family. She too went to the same restaurants to find them closed and we both finally ended up at Nam Chau. What a coincidence!
Besides the white coffee, Nam Chau is famous for its curry noodles.
So it is curry noodle (soup version) for me. It came with half a lime.
I squeezed out the lime juice onto the noodle before I started to enjoy my bowl of curry noodle.
As usual, it is curry noodle (dry version) for hubby.
That morning, I ordered "kopi C kosong" (coffee with evaporated milk minus sugar).
"Kopi C kosong" and hubby's "kopi O kosong" (unsweetened black coffee).
Whenever we are in Nam Chau, we will order their signature white coffee!

Both the front and back are opened to customers.

Custard Apples & Little Critters.

After I have harvest the first 2 fruits from my Custard Apple plant, I trimmed off all the branches. Even though it was planted in a big pot, it grew tall. To control its height, I cut and shortened the plant.
Very soon new branches started to grow and once again it was covered with lush leaves.
Then followed by many small buds.
Hopefully, some of these will not drop but will turn into fruits.
Ahh! I caught sight of one small fruit here!
And another 2 fruits further up!
After some time, it grew to this size.
Another one up here!
Keeping a look out. This one is going to ripen anytime now.
So is this one!
I received some baby Adenium plants from a friend.
These are all grown from seeds.

This week the focus will be on these tiny critters.
A baby grasshopper on my garden fence.
Another grasshopper clinging onto my papaya tree trunk.
A baby dragonfly on the side wall.
This butterfly came into my hall and landed on the floor.
We were in a car show room looking at some new cars. Spotted this lizard on a brand new red car. It too wanted to show off its beauty!

A lizard can be caught with the hand,

yet it is found in kings' palaces.

Dinner Again At Restoran Makanan Laut Old Man, Ipoh.

When we enjoyed the first meal, naturally we will go back for the second meal. Our second dinner happened to fall on the eve of Malaysia Day celebration. This round, we decided to order something different from what we had previously.
Double steamed coconut chicken soup will be great on a cool, wet night.
Chicken and dried Chinese herbs soup steamed in an old coconut together with the coconut flesh @ MYR 22.
This is the amount when the soup and content was poured out into a big bowl. The soup was thick and sweet, very rich in flavour. Each of us get to enjoy a small bowl of this nutritious soup.
They make their own bbq pork, served with some vegetable salad and thick bbq sauce @ MYR 13.
Stinky beans with minced meat with sambal belacan @ MYR 15.
Sweet potato leaves with sambal belacan @ MYR 8.
Total cost of dinner for 4 people = MYR 63.20.
