Happy Saturday dear Hive friends! Yesterday we tried to bike to get money from the ATM because my mother-in-law is tired of sending money by Western Union. We know we can't do it already from our local friend two days ago because he can’t get money from an ATM around Paramaribo. But we still try do it because we have only five dollars.

The five dollars is so small we can’t go to buy anything in the store. We hope if we can get some money from ATM then we can buy more food. That ATM is near the US Embassy, a bitr far from our place, maybe bike 30 minutes.

When we reach there my husband said, "The ATM is not working and I feel too tired to bike all the way to the city now, plus I think it’s going to rain soon." So we head back home and I tell with him I will stop to pick waterlilies and water morning glory in the canal for making food today.

This canal usually I see people fishing all the time when I bike over there, but I never see them picking these vegetables like we do in my country.

When I live in my country Cambodia, I do that many times in my life, but this is my first time I pick these vegetables in Suriname.

This canal has so many waterlilies, but they are too far from my hands, so I can’t pick them, but a few were near my hands.

This kind of morning glory grows in the water, and it is red, normally they growing all by itself. For the white morning glory, the people grow it in dirt.

In Cambodia we have two different morning glories, and so many people sell it at the markets. But for here I see only white morning glory sold in the markets, so I don’t know if the people eat red morning glory or not.

These vegetables are special for us. I made sour soup from them and my family enjoyed it because we can’t eat it a long time. This day I go to the store and my husband go to city for get money again.

Here still not have much vegetables yet, but in the Chinese store there is a few brown cucumbers, they are nearly spoiled but still selling them. I really miss good vegetables like in my country. Have a nice weekend everyone.

Yes, because I used to have a hard life in the past, this time for me not too much hard. Thank you for your kind words 😊.

I never knew waterlilies were edible! I could have known. Thanks for teachin me something new. It makes me feel blessed to have an abundance of food and vegetables around me ( even from my twin sister's vegetable garden ) these days.

I'm glad to hear that your family enjoyed the soup. Justin and you put so much love into your cooking! You're great examples and I wish you all the best for the future.

A hug from Portugal!

Give thanks my friend and thank you very much for the stopping by. We have a lot of fun and love in our family so we will be good in the future. Big hugs from our family πŸ˜Šβ€οΈπŸ€—

Hi dear!!! How are you guys doing! I missed so many of your great posts!!! Trying to catch up as much as I can right now. How’s the visa situation? Are you guys near the end of the process or still very slow progress?

Still a smile on your face with the struggles and that will get you and your family through all this. I had no idea those plants could be eaten, but come to think of it, most plants can be eaten but we just dont' eat them, most people rather junk.....

Yes, we struggles with our life and I hope I can leave here soon. These plants have so much in Asia so we all know them and I never know one the people don’t like them. Thank you for your kind words.

I am so happy that you found something to eat. Most people would starve because they don't want these foods. I feel heart ache that you are struggling. Anytime you need something please ask. I will be glad to help with no strings attached.

I've never eaten those things before. I bet they are delicious. Take care my friendβ€οΈπŸ’š

Give thanks my dear friend I get in my heart! We are okay just need to be struggles for difficult times. Wish you all the best ❀️😊.

Were there is a will there is a way stay strong and happy good things will come to you all 😁

Oh, that's a good word, I don't understand, then I asked my husband. That’s right my friend. Thank you so much 😊

Your welcome @sreypov have a great day 😊

I just learned from you that waterlily can be eaten. I never heard or learned that from my place.

The waterlily we can cook so many different recipes and we eat raw also.

We actually eat water morning glory. My late uncle even went into canals to pick them, after which he bound them into heaps and sold them from house to house. We've also just started planting them in our backyard. We know them as water spinach or kang kong. We enjoy this vegetable with a lot of chilis and cook them with shrimp paste.

I didn't know you could cook water lilly's though... Please do make a post about it whenever you cook something with it 😊.

I glad to hear from you I would buy them too if the people sell them but in my place, I have never seen people do that. Here is not have more vegetables a month ago, we can't get tomatoes for two to three weeks already but today I see them but expensive, they are 30srd for four tomatoes and not beautiful. How does your place live? I made a sour soup and I will share it with you. Thank you for your feedback 😊

Yes, the markets are closed and the stores don't really sell these vegetables. I've really only seen this type of vegetable at vendors.

And tomatoes are scarce yes. My mom froze her tomato stash and only uses them when needed.

I made a sour soup and I will share it with you.

Awesome, looking forward to it πŸ‘

I like kale, it tastes very good.

Many thanks 😊

Looking so beautiful

Thanks a lot 😊

Reblog your posting dear always

Thank you for that 😊
