Red Wine From Jerusalem & Dinner At "Sam Can Cook"

It was the last day of September when we were inform that our friend and her husband will be visiting Ipoh. This friend had earlier visited Jerusalem and she brought back some red wine for us to taste. 
We were invited to join our friends and sister for lunch but hubby and I couldn't made it because we had a lunch date with another friend.
We informed them that we will be able to meet up after lunch at their sister's house. 
 It was wonderful to meet up with our friends. Later, we went to a nearby food court for our afternoon drinks and snack. Our friend brought along the red wine.
 This was the bottle of red wine brought all the way from Jerusalem.
 Cana wedding wine of Holy Land.
Everyone had a taste of the red wine, just enough not to make us drunk!
 Thank you, friend for taking the trouble to bring back the wine for us to taste.

That evening we had dinner date again.
 It had been raining heavily since afternoon.
 Waiting for the rain to stop before going out for our dinner date.
The dinner place - Kopitiam 1 Curve, Lengkok Desa Rishah 1, Desa Rishah. But according to this new banner, the cooking business is called "Sam Can Cook"
 Our friends love pork belly - so its pork belly stewed with wood fungus.
 Assam chicken meat with okra (ladies fingers)
Steamed silky smooth and soft tofu with minced pork+salted fish on the sides.
 Stir fry baby kailan.
It was a great dinner and wonderful fellowship.

The following photos from Lim Ko Pi are for joining Tuesday's Treasures and Image-in-ing.
 Saw this old antique fan standing in the corner. It is still in good working condition.

Come, let's talk this over, says the Lord;

no matter how deep the stain of your sins,

I can take it out and make you as clean as freshly fallen snow.

Even if you are stained as red as crimson,

I can make you white as wool!

(Isaiah 1:18, The Living Bible-TLB)

Spending The Whole Saturday With Friends

I received a call from a friend to inform that the meeting will be in Aeon Station 18, Ipoh. It was a nice Saturday morning and we were told to be there by 11 am. So by 10.30 am I was out of the house driving to Station 18. Someone came to pick us and took us to the Kedai Makan Ban Mee 101. The last time I ate here was in January this year - 11 months ago!
A bowl of "Loh Mee" for my brunch!
Didn't take photo of what my friends ate.
We ordered these crispy deep fried stuff bean curd sheet to share.
A glass of lemon ginger drink for me.
After brunch, someone decided to go all the way to Aeon Big in Falim!
The distance is about 9.5 km and that is supposed to be the shortest way.
My first snapshot of a Christmas tree in Aeon, Falim.
A white Christmas tree with gold decorations.
After walking around and looking at all the items on sale, we stopped here.
Another friend treated us to this very silky smooth ice cream.
It was a record breaking shopping day for me. Never in my life had I shopped for 8 hours! I had to find a place to rest my tired feet while my friends continue to shop. I really take my hat off to them. Not once did they mention about tired feet. Sigh, maybe it is because of my age!
*     *     *     *     *
By the time I reached home, I quickly took my bath and off we went to Bercham for our dinner date with another group of friends. A dinner gathering of 5 friends at Soo Har Yee restaurant. Some friends wanted to try the food here.
Steamed mixed seafood platter.
A must order dish if you are eating here.
Stir-fry yee meen (pre-fried noodle) for 2 people.
Instead of rice, we ordered noodles.
Stir fry vermicelli for 2 people.
Stir fry sambal belacan paku-pakis (local fern)
We ordered their signature Mud Crabs In Bread.
The server brought the bread to our table for us to take photo before she cut open the bread.
Mud crabs (2 crabs) in sweet sour sauce inside the bread.
My first helping on a small plate.
And a piece of fine cottony bread to eat with the sweet sour sauce.
Total cost of dinner came to MYR 248, shared by 5 friends.
*     *     *     *     *
It was a long day but a very eventful day indeed!
It is not always that we get to enjoy such an eventful day!

That is what the Scriptures mean when they say that

God made Abraham the father of many nations.

God will accept all people in every nation

who trust God as Abraham did.

And this promise is from God himself,

who makes the dead live again and speaks of future events

with as much certainty as though they were already past.

(Romans 4:17, The Living Bible-TLB)

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.

Linking to Saturday's Critters.

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.

(Hebrews 4:3, The Living Bible-TLB)
