Pumpkin for Lunch

>> Sunday, March 29, 2009

I was wondering what to cook for lunch today when I saw this two big pumpkins hubby got from the garden and decided to cook it even though I was a bit lazy to get the pumpkin skin peeled and cut as it was big and heavy and needed quite an energy to cut it open.

Finally I managed to cut about a quarter size of pumpkin..
and diced it
Half an hour later pumpkin cooked with chicken meat was produced..

Tadaa ..still hot they were smoking..
that's my tale for today's lunch..fresh from the garden and into the wok :)


Moth or Kupu-kupu

>> Friday, March 20, 2009

I rarely saw a striking moth in my surroundings but not this one I found resting on the house wall one day . Its beautiful patterns and look alike eyes are well formed. It is much closer to a butterfly I think. Since it has a feathery antennae I assumed it is a moth as butterfly's antennae is thin and slender.


Turmeric or Kunyit

Turmeric or Kunyit (curcuma longa) here has many uses in culinary, medicinal, as dye and as well as ceremony uses particularly the wedding ceremony of North Indians. Turmeric is native to South Asia and a plant of the ginger family.

Flowerings and Fruitings in my garden

There are some plants in my garden that bearingflowers and some are fruiting.

The longan tree

the longan fruit

The longan ("dragon eyes") is so named because of the fruit's resemblance to an eyeball when it is shelled (the black seed shows through the translucent flesh like a pupil/iris).In Chinese medicine the longan, much like the lychee, is considered a "warm" fruit.
The Avocado tress in my garden are also bearing flowers and fruits.
Hardly wait to pluck them since they still young ..

Mangga Wani or known as the 'buah kuini in West Malaysia is another type of mango species, it is sweet and when planted properly will not have bugs inside the fruit..
