My One And Only Edible Greens

MY DAILY HARVEST.... almost daily, I can get two or three okra from my 7 pots.  At least one can be plucked if not a few.  Thanks to my green thumb friend who provides me with the okra seeds and to my neighbour who planted them in his pots.  As for me, I only do the fertilizing and watering at times.... and of course, the inspection and harvesting.  LOL.... 

The process of getting these okra is considered fast, in less than a month, the fruits are reaped.  I like seeing the flowers sprouting out and after that, the okras will appear.  I do not have a grassy garden, if I do, I surely will plant more edible greens.  When this lockdown is over, I will visit the nursery to get the necessary but before that, I must go consult my "Sifu" on how and what to plant!  LOL... 

Full blown flower and okras sprouting out from this plant....
These are stubby okras... 
Crunchy and nice at this length....
Wait any longer, they will become too hard and tough to be eaten... 

And recently my friend gave me the seeds 
to this Red Okra.... 
Red when uncooked...
Turned green when cooked...
Now only I know!
Enough for me.... 
Sometimes I just steam them...
and at times stir fry with dried shrimps.... 
Accumulated batch..... 
These went into my fish curry on that day.... 
Yes, I am an "Okra Woman" .....
LOL...

  1. Red ones? Never seen those before. So pretty! And your green ones are so cute! Short and fat! LOL!!!
    Yes, my girl planted a few too and they have started to flower and bear fruit. Still small though! Hopefully, will be big enough to harvest soon so we can cook and enjoy. I like them steamed and eaten with sambal belacan just like that, no need for any fancy cooking.

  2. Wah! I wish I had okra plants in my garden. It is a good idea to plant vegetables in the garden. Can harvest fresh organic produce everyday! Your sifu must be Nancy :)

    You really amazed me with your okra plants growing from the pots! I better start planting this too.

  5. I have never had any Okra, and did not know about the strange color change.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe
