'Ma Li Chai'/'Mani Chai', also known as Cangkuk Manis

Image
While googling for news about 'malichai', it turns out that I hardly get anything that I am looking for, so this triggers me to write something about this local vegetables that I believe, can only be found in Sarawak.

'Mali chai' is easily planted and grow quite fast as well. In fact, this is the only vegetables that I planted and it didn't fail on me! With its stick, just plant it on the ground and leave the rain and sun to takes care of the rest. Hahaha... 'Mali chai' is a word in hokkien that mostly use in Kuching. 'Chai' means vegetables. Hakka people called it 'su choi'. Well, this vege doesn't seems to have an English name. If we are to translate from BM to English, it definitely sounds weird - Sweet Hook. I think anyone who hear 'sweet hook' will not be keen to try it out..

So, how do 'mali chai' looks like? I've snap the photos of this vegetables at my garden. Actually, I've just harvest the vegetables few w…

Hello Kitty

Image
Yesterday while having dinner with some friends, one of them ask this quiz which I think kind of funny. Let me share it here ...

One day, Doraemon met Hello Kitty at the shopping complex. Then, he greeted her:
Doraemon: Hello, Hello Kitty
Hello Kitty : -
When there's no response from her, he greeted again
Doraemon : Hello, Hello Kitty, how are you today?
Hello Kitty : -

Now, the question is .. Why Hello Kitty just kept quiet and not responding to Doraemon?

Kueh Chap @Sg Maong, 3rd Mile

Image
Many of us might know that kueh chap at 3rd mile is famous for its generous portion and taste. So, last Saturday, while going around Kuching looking for food, we stop by at 3rd Mile to fill our hungry tummy.

This store is located almost opposite Sunny Hill. Their business is so good! Majority people that stop by will order kueh chap. They too have a lot of workers to help out delivering and taking orders.

Kueh chap isn't complete without the 'sambal' chillie. As the first plate of chillie is too little, I've requested for another one. When my chillies came, I'm stunt. Gosh, so much!


And then, the king of kueh chap arrives. Wow, so much!!! Anyway, I grade it 9 out of 10. Another point missing because the sambal is not spicy enough. Hehehehe... I finished 2 plate of chillies and yet I don't feel hot or spicy.

RCIA Class - The Daily Prayers

Image
So after one week holidays, here I am, attending the RCIA class. As usual, I'm late again. Hey, can't blame me. I realize that the clock is actually 5 mins faster than mine!

Today, we learnt the daily prayers of The Our Father. As a baptist Christian that have already attended the Confession classes before, I have already memorized the Our Father. Just that, the version of mine seems slightly different but with the same meaning.

There are 7 sentences in the Our Father Prayer:


Our Father In Heaven,
Holy be Your Name
Your kingdom come, Your will be done on Earth as is in heaven

Give us this day our daily bread,
And forgive us for our sin as we forgive those who sins against us
Do not bring us to the test
But deliver us from evil

The first 3 sentences is for praising God and after that, to ask God for our daily needs and forgiveness.

This is a very powerful prayer. Normally we would pray and tell God what we need although God knows best what we need most. If our head is empty and we do not …
