Durian Oh Durian

Well the durian season is back....For the past few weeks, everyday I would pass by Pasar Payang here in Terengganu just to enjoy the view of the 'King of Fruit' which can be found in abundance in front of the market. The price of Durian here, is quite reasonable and had lured many to stop and buy them. I did stop to buy the Durian a few times but most of the days I would just drove by the market to feel the joy of the durian season which is waited by many of us.
In Terengganu Durian is pronounced as 'Duriang'. People in Terengganu and Kelantan prefer to savour durian with sticky rice and coconut milk. As I am from Selangor, it is something new to me. The first time I tried it I did not really like it but after a few times I began to love it so much!
Well, I would like to share some interesting descriptions and facts about Durian :-
...among the world's most expensive fruits
...either a delicacy or a NUISANCE
...banned in hotels and public transportation
...shaped like a Hedgehog and smells like compost.
...smells like hell but taste like heaven
...having succulent creamy filling but smelling like stinky socks
...smells like old gym socks or rotting flesh
...unusual fruit from the east
...when the Durians come down the sarong goes up! (during picking season)
...can cause injury or death if it falls from the tree at a great height (of course!)
Whatever it is, to us in the East, the Durian is a food like no other and enjoyed by many. It tastes so delicious that most of us crave for it. It is also a nutritious fruit packed with minerals, protein and vitamins. It is especially rich in Vitamin B, C and E and has high iron content.
Well enjoy Durian everyone!

Color Your Life

I was sitting at the dinner table staring at my colorful mug and place mats when I suddenly realize the importance of colors in my life. All my life, I have always like colorful things and love to surround myself with colors. Color makes me happy, lively and gives me energy. In our lives, colors are used for everything; to convey the appealing emotions of humans, to give energy to our living space or t0 make food more attractive and tempting!

I believe that we have to add colors to our life in order to stay happy. Color can actually help our lives in wonderfully positive ways. So.. Dare to be colorful! Dare to be great!

A Fishing Village In Batu Rakit

This picture was taken in a fishing village in Batu Rakit, Terengganu. I just love those colourful fishing boats. They look nice in pictures! That day, I had banana fritters at a stall nearby. The fried noodle was really delicious..The coconut juice helped me quenched my thirst.
Happened to see the fishermen coming back with the fresh fish..It is not a common sight to me before..just love to be in a fishing village like this..

How To Manage Anger

This picture was taken a few days ago at the Batu Burok Beach -the ever popular beach in town. Yesterday was such a bad day..Creating this postcard just now had helped me to deal with my anger towards 'someone'. Well, we know very well that we don't always agree with others on everything...so, disagreements happen and arguments ensue, just as storms suddenly blow up in
Next, we always have a problem calming down after one of these hurricanes...Well the anger should not continue...Try to find ways to deal with it...I always my make myself occupied to burn off the anger. I would do something to calm myself down like writing in this blog.Well, you can go for a run, jog in place, punch a pillow or scream into it...!!! Do something to take your mind away from the anger. Listen to soothing music, read a joke book, work on a hobby....Do whatever brings you peace of mind!!! Get rid of the anger...Live Well, Love Much, Laugh Often! That's my style.

Celebrating Father's Day

FATHER'S DAY - 21st JUNE 2009

Hmm.... father's day is just around the corner...What is your plan for the big day??

Well, Father's day is a day to honour all the fathers for everything they did for their children. Just like our mothers, our fathers also contribute a lot to our families and societies.So father's day is the day for us to thank our fathers for all their unconditional love and affection.

You are very lucky if you still have your father by your side..or you can still hear his voice through the phone if you are living far away from him..because.. some people don't!. As for me, my father passed away about 9 years ago and since then I've been missing him a lot. I can never celebrate father's day with him again..

All of you out there must therefore take full opportunity of the day and express your gratitude, love and respect towards your father with all your heart. To all mothers out there, make sure you help your children appreciate their fathers and celebrate Father's day. Express your love towards your beloved father..LiVe LaUgH LoVe.

To all fathers in this world- Happy Father's Day. God bless you all!To the father of my children..I love you so much. You've been such a wonderful father..

Live, Laugh, Love

Here's a poem with the theme of my blog..

Live Love Laugh

Love is easy
Love is free
Everyone wants it
Everyone needs it
Everyone has it to give
Everyone has it to share

With love, we learn..
To understand
To compromise
To be patience
To be honest
To be truthful

To live life
Have love in your life
Make someone smile
Make someone laugh
To feel real life
We should live, laugh, love..
