Green Vegetables From The Front And Back

SHORT FINGERS....     And I planted some Ladies' Fingers aka Okra using some seeds given by my neighbour.  He told me that it would take some time to see the "harvest" and he was right.  I planted six seeds in my two posts more than a month ago... and I could only see the harvest this week.  I think it was around two months?  Did it really take that long or I do not have the "green fingers" so they speak... I think I have short fingers cos this type of okra came out stubby and short but very crunchy!

I love ladies' fingers... I used to buy them from the market, either I just steam them or just stir fry them with dried prawns and chili... That is why I tried planting them for my own consumption and it works!  For the first time in 6 decades, I planted something edible!   LOL... 

Taken some time a month ago or so... 
Budding out from the seeds.... 
I didn't know I have to put in fertilizer every two weeks.... 
No wonder they were so slow!
I only got to know this after I complained to my agro-friend...
Then she gave me a packet of colourful drops... 
Ta-da... after much fattening.... it finally blooms and bear fruits... 
These are short and stubby kind of okra...
It is time for harvest.... so my friend said..
Otherwise it would be inedible... 
Just two inches high!
And these are plucked from the back garden...
they belong to my neighbour...
He couldn't finish in time... 
So every now and then I did the harvesting... LOL... 
For my lunch and dinner.... fried rice with minced meat...  
I used basil, french beans, long beans, pandan leaves for steaming the rice...
All from the back garden... 
plus my three stubby okra from the front!
LOL...

  1. Lucky you! I'm not into planting vegetables now, can just go and buy at the shop near my house. Too stressful! I just plant things I can use for my cooking - serai, kunyit, spring onions, pandan, Thai basil and so on.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch
