My Sunflower Seeds And Stubby Okras

PLUCKING MOMENTS....  Andy is back again, this time not to plant but to harvest. LOL... The sunflowers that he planted two months ago have reached their peak.  It is time to un-seed them and see if he could replant them again using the seeds.  Not sure it could work... the seeds are still drying under the sun during the day.
The sunflower turns into this.... 
And I didn't know they were actually sunflower seeds until we plucked them open... 
Hope these can be replanted.... 


As for my own two pots of previous fat okras, they are slow in harvesting and so far, I have eaten only six of them.  Initially I did not know what type of species they were until this friend pointed out to me in Facebook, mentioning that.. if there are eight corners, then the okra is Arab species and if five corners, it is Taiwanese.  Thanks to her, now I know....  LOL... Interesting, right?  
Still Sprouting high.... 
So now I know...
Mine are Arab ones, short and stubby and yet crunchy!
I am going to plant more pots of these...
They can either be steamed or stir fry with sambal!

  1. Oh!! I didn't know got Arab ones. I prefer Ang Moh sized to eat.

    I must try planting Sunflowers as the blooming flowers always looked happy and big.

  2. I got some sunflower seeds from my church early this year. Try to grow them but not successful. Maybe will try again since I have some more seeds.

    Arabic okra is so cute. Haha

  3. I am sure his seeds will re-grow! All you really need to do is dump them on the ground like our neighbor did, and they will grow!

  4. Did you all eat some of the sunflower seeds? Like kuaci. Your okra is so cute. Didn't know about the different types of okras.

    1. Of course they can be eaten. I have eaten sunflower seeds direct from the pods before.

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....

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
