Gallimaufry#10

Just a bunch of random photos from my corner of the world.

Bauhinia Kockiana

Daytime moon

Lunch   Pad Nam Prik Pao Talay
The name is a bit of  a mouthful but this Thai stir-fry is really amazing. 
 
Koi pond in our condo  one of my favourite spots


Economy rice
Economy rice, as the name implies, is a cheap and fast meal option outside of home. Economy rice stalls typically consist of a case/table containing anywhere from 10-15 troughs of cooked food, including meat, vegetables, eggs and tofu dishes.


Here's how it works ...
You fill up a plate with white rice. Then you proceed to pile on as much or as little dishes as you want.  Next, you show the vendor your selections and they calculate the cost based on the number of dishes you have taken. 

The dishes are simple and affordable

That's how Malaysian students sustain themselves through college.

  1. I like all the veggies I see in that typical Thay dish 🌽πŸ₯¦πŸ₯• and the
    cheap and fast meal (economy rice) may be a good option when we are outside of home for job ... it's heathier than hot dog or pizza πŸ•πŸŒ­
    Fantastic view of the moon from your balcony πŸŒ“

    Have a nice week ahead of you ☀️

  4. Dearest Veronica,
    Always nice for being back in South East Asia through your images.
    MISS the food so much... so healthy and such a variety of vegetables.
    The flowers also are a treat for the eye; year round.
    Guess what? Yesterday in Atlanta we bought us Rambutan2 so we're happy.
    Yep, other readers don't understand the Malay plural sign...πŸ˜‰
    Have a nice Wednesday and sending you hugs,
    Mariette

  6. The views from your "corner of the world" are always interesting.
    Beautiful photos of the full moon. It's very scenic over the city.
    As an animal lover I also like the photos of the fishes.
    The veggie dish looks delicious.

  11. I like the economy rice idea. My daughter used to live in Fremantle Australia, they had something similar there with different cuisines, it was very good. The Bauhinia Kockiana are beautiful.

  13. Oh the food. I want some of each of those dishes.

    Have a fabulous day. ♥

  14. I love stir fry, I made some last night. I love the flowers.
    Economy rice almost looks like something we have here called a buffet. But we pay one price to get in and eat as much as we want from the different dishes.

  17. Love your shots of the economy rice selections. Haven't gone for one for a long while now.

  18. Oh, boy!!!! Am I hungry now! This looks yummy! We have nothing like that.
    And how can they do this for this price?!

    Here we have Chinese - quite more expensive and it all tastes the same. Boring.
    Indian is good, though, but Ingo cannot have it.

    Beautiful flowers, too!
    You voted from the car? We live behind a rock here!!

  27. The Bauhinia Kockiana is beautiful. What a striking color. I've seen fish just like that at a nursery in the area that I grew up at. The Pad Nam Prik Pao Talay looks really good.

    Have a lovely rest of the week.

  34. In Jan last year, I went to such a place (Economy Rice) in Penang. It was recommended by a bystander as the food court we were looking for was closed. The place was packed! Are these places open now?

    ReplyDelete
  35. I love these, especially the orange and yellow flowers. Magnificent.

    ReplyDelete
  36. We have had a daytime moon lately, too. My grands get a big kick out of it when the moon and sun are both out at the same time.

    Lovely capture of the flowers and the koi. Economy rice is my kinda joint!!

  37. I don't know what it is about koi fish, I really like them, I have 2 of them tattooed on the back of my neck.

  40. Various different things spice up this post. I’m intrigued by the koi pond with reflection of blue sky and ripples and the exotic, beautiful flowers. The dish looks so delicious.

  41. Thank you so much, for your lovely comment, on my blog. -smile-

    What a wonderful group of photos, of where you live! Plus information, like Economy Rice. Happy for students there. No need to cook. Which is always nice, along with the 'Economy' part.

  45. The Bauhinia Kockiana colors were so beautiful, Veronica Lee, and really made me think autumn. And, the foods as always look so good even in your photos without a taste test!

  46. Those Malaysian students have more choices than our useless students. All they ever do is cook Heinz beans on toast. Lazy monkeys!
