Little Arrowhead Bulbs (Nga Koo) From My Garden.

I did a previous post on "Chinese Arrowhead Shoots Growing In My Garden" and you can click here if you are interested to read about it. And this post is an update on the progress of the arrowhead shoots growing in my garden. Initially, I was very diligent in watering the arrowhead shoots and keeping them moist throughout the day. After a while with a few short holidays in between, I sort of forgotten about the arrowhead shoots. 
Now with the hot season, the leaves of the arrowhead shoots are not as healthy as before. They are no longer dark green and the leaves are smaller in size. I think it is now about 6 months since the shoots appeared and I was curious whether there are arrowheads forming under the shoots.
To satisfy my curiosity, I carefully dug out one of the bigger plants to check and these were what I have found.
I found some small bulbs of nga koo or arrowheads.
The big round one were about the size of a fifty cents coin and there were smaller ones. I returned the arrowhead bulbs to the pots, covered up with soil and hope they will continue to grow. Maybe I will dig out one of the bigger shoots in a few months time to check again.
These are the leaves stalks. They are spongy with air spaces throughout the length of the stalks.
This together with the roots intact, I planted them back into the soil.
Hopefully in a few months time, I will have another update post to share.
Who knows, I might even get to harvest a few arrowheads from my garden. Lol!

I am told you can solve all kinds of mysteries.

If you can tell me the meaning of those words,

I will clothe you in purple robes, with a gold chain around your neck,

and make you the third ruler in the kingdom.

Breakfast At Kedai Kopi Sin Choi Yuen & Home cooked Dinner.

One morning after our walking exercise, we decided to have our breakfast somewhere nearby at Kedai Kopi Sin Choi Yuen. As I walked in, I noticed a new stall and on closer look, I saw that it was a pan mee stall. 
Initially, I wanted to order the normal pan mee in clear soup but when I found out that they have chicken curry, I opted for pan mee noodle with chicken curry.
The veggie soup is served separately when the noodle is the dry version.
This was my pan mee with chicken curry and the green veggie soup. 
 This was my hubby's breakfast - pork noodle.
 Without ordering, the boss knows our regular unsweetened black coffee.

That evening, I wasn't in lazy mode, so I decided to cook.
 There was pork rib in my freezer. I stewed the pork rib with ginger slices, bird's chilies from my garden and some bean paste. Great to eat with white rice.
 I used up the remaining greens from my fridge and stir fried the greens with chopped garlic.

Early Dinner With Friends At Restoran Pin Sum, Menglembu.

It was a Wednesday and we were expecting our outstation friends. They will be staying overnight with us as our guests and will be leaving for their home the next day. It will take about 3 hours plus for them to reach Ipoh depending on the traffic flow on the highway. We knew they will be late and will be hungry by the time they reach Ipoh.

It was past 4 pm when our friends reached our house. By this time, most of the eateries would have been closed for the day and the night eateries have not yet open for business. The first eatery we went to was already closed, so we ended up in Restoran Pin Sum. We were the last customers before they closed up for the day. So this meal turned out to be our early dinner.
A plate of roast duck and bbq pork.
Our friend likes this savoury dish, so we ordered pig's intestine fried with dried chilies.
Wat Tan Hor - Stir fried koay teow or flat rice noodle with thick gravy.
Sum See Meen - Stir fried noodle with mushroom strips, meat. etc.
Pickled green chilies to eat with the noodles.
Total cost of dinner with herbal tea for 4 people
MYR 78.40 (approx. 18.30 USD)
That night our friends had a wedding dinner to attend.

Then the angel said to me,"Write this:

Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding supper of the Lamb!"

And he added, "These are the true words of God."

(Revelation 19:9, New International Version-NIV)
