He took me to a late lunch . We wanted to have Thai at our local haunt in Richmond. It was closed.

So then I persuaded him to have lunch at a newly opened restaurant. Their noodle soup was so and so. Their broth not bad. 

We bought sweets . He bought rice wine balls and I bought durian slices. They came in a pack of 5 for $6.50. 

We didn’t feel safe in Richmond today. More druggies pounding the pavements than shoppers.

Then he drove me to Bulleen to grab groceries . Some fish for my fish balls and milk and more fruit.

Now I’m home having some slice with hot water. Will make to fish balls soon. Here is hoping it works. 

I’m following this recipe but substituting fish sauce instead of salt. I’m going to add in dill, black pepper and sesame oil to it.

As for smoothing it out will use a cleaver and squashing the fish fillets . The fish I bought today was monk fish . Will use grenadier next time as suggested by one of the commenters. Forgot the corn flour in the photo😩
