16 Better a little with the fear of the LORD
than great wealth with turmoil.
17 Better a small serving of vegetables with love than a fattened calf with hatred.
Here we are with our friend at a favorite little "jaulauh" (restaurant) in Tai Wai. Yes, we are sitting outdoors, it's right by the road, the plastic chairs a challenge for the more mature bottoms of the family...but the food is exquisite. We eschewed some of the more outrageous items on the menu:
--crisp deep fried pig intestines
-- minced mud carp
--deboned ducks web with xo sauce
--spiced chicken ginger feet
--pepper salt frogs
--fried cuttlefish balls
--fishes brain congee
We opted, instead, for some of the relatively safe options such as sweet & sour chicken, fresh squid, and vegetables. If our friend looks slightly disgruntled in the picture, it's because she tried in vain to order a couple of vegetarian dishes, only to find rich layers of pork fat between the eggplant and tofu dishes she had ordered.
Do note our increasingly improving use of chopsticks!!!!
