Our Banana Tree is doing Strips Tease

We have eaten a lot of banana before but didn't really know how it is formed. 

One morning Mamarazzi noticed a weird shaped leaf. Hmmm.... soooo round eh. 

One day later can see the reddish tip appearing.



Three days after that can see two "petals"  unfolded. Inside each "petal" there is a bunch of babies banana. So cuteeee~!


 Each day Mamarazzi peeked.  It's been a week and there are around 7 bunches of bananas unfolded. The 8th onwards started to look stunted. 

maybe it means that the male flowers is forming. A gardening friend taught Mamarazzi to cut off the "heart" once male flowers appear. 





 Maybe he mean this.  Now waiting and see if there will be more bananas before cutting off the "heart" .  Heard the heart can be use to for salad.




While waiting for the Banana Tree to finish doing strip tease,  Mamarazzi is also attempting to make Kombucha. The starter have a strange name called Scoby. Nothing to do with Scooby Doo. Will update you when there is more result. 


Meantime, if you are free, don't forget to drop by Bukit Jelutong Plant Exchange tomorrow morning  ya.

Now Mamarazzi is busy labelling the plants. We'll be bringing around 100 plants to be adopted.

See you there!

The Making of Keropok Lekor and The Coming 4th Bukit Jelutong Plant Exchange on 3rd December 2016




 *Sweep sweep cobweb* Aiyoyo...few weeks didn't blog what happened to blogspot ah? How come all the controls , dashboard etc all changed already.


Busy doing what ar...hmm...the usual lo...boiling Kdrama and Mainland drama. Finished "On The Way to Airport" and "Boss and Me". The former was good but not "wow" but the latter was really hilarious.

 Anyway, on top of boiling drama, Mamarazzi FB on how to make Keropok Lekor. Since the recipe seems simple enough..Mamarazzi immediately went to hunt for the necessary ingredients the next day.

Recipe  calls for Sardines fish and Sago Flour. Have to de-bone the fishes. Very tedious work😰 and not much meat .


 Blend the meat using a blender and add some iced water with a pinch of salt. 


 Then add some Sago flour to the fish paste mixture. According to the recipe, the portion is 2:1. (200g meat : 100g flour).

 After mixed everything evenly, it's time to rock 'n roll. 

 Rolled Keropok Lekor ready to go for a swim in the wok. 

 Nice hot bath.  It's cooked once it floated up .

Cooling on the tray before Papa eat. Usually Keropok Lekor are fried after this but Papa eats it as it it.

Papa said too chewy. Too much Sago flour. Mamarazzi posted up in FB and her friend told her to change to recipe to 6:3:1 (Sago Flour : Tapioca Flour : Wheat Flour). A friend made some keropok lekor using the improved recipe and found them just nice.

Conclusion to recipe....well....will not make unless desperate la. A lot of work and the total cost not really cheaper than buying ready made Keropok Lekor. The bright side is that the head and tail of the fish can be use by Mamarazzi to make FAA(fertiliser) for her plants.


Apart from trying out new recipe, she is also busy planting.  Seedlings and cups of plants are everywhere in the garden, under the trees and in the car porch.

Yup! preparing for the 4th Bukit Jelutong Plant Exchange.  It will take place next Saturday. Here is the details of venue and time :-

Children Day Celebration 2016

 *Photo credit to classmate's mom*

Last month end ,  we had Children Day celebration . This year, there were no performance as our school hall is under renovation. So we celebrated in our class.


Two weeks before the celebration, our teacher asked us to confirm what food we are bringing to the party (if any).

Wah lau eh...surprise surprise...so many say bring junk food. Cikgu pengsan sekejap *LOL*




 *Photo credit to classmate's mom*

Nah...actually many mommies made delicious food for us la. There were hotdogs...opppsss...must say sausages from now on...spaghetti, bihun, fried rice, Frozen themed cupcakes, mini muffins, fried chicken, nuggets, fruits and many more....but opppsss.... nobody sponsor drinks ka? 

But no problem la...Cikgu whatsapps the night before asking if any parents would like to sponsor drinks and immediately got volunteers. 

Fun fun fun! on top of food and drinks...Mamarazzi also let me bring balloons to school. At first she was worried that we can't blow the balloons . One mommy jokingly said can ask Cikgu L to blow..*LOL*. Yes, Cikgu L came into our class and we had balloon blowing competition.  


 End of the day, there were a lot of junk food to be distributed. Yup...Cikgu didn't let us eat the junk food. Instead , it was kept at one corner. End of the day, we distributed the junk food to bring home. It will be up to the parents whether to let us have junk food or not.

I may not be good in study but distributing food and organising these am number 1...according to Cikgu la. *LOL*



Mamarazzi had to laugh when she saw this. Takes 3 to get a mop to mop the class. 

Papa was not around. So I told Mamarazzi not to cook dinner. Sure there will be leftover food from the class party. Our teacher very clever too. Told us to bring 2 empty containers.  One to use as "plate" to eat in class and the other is to "tapau" excess food home. 

I "tapau" fried rice, fried chicken, nugget and sausages home. Also jelly and muffin for Papa to eat when he come back.

Reasonably Priced Adeniums Found At Taman Eng Ann Morning Market, Klang





Recently, Mamarazzi got to know a friend (Mr Low) through Bukit Jelutong Plant Exchange. He is an avid adenium lover.

He told Mamarazzi that he got his adeniums very cheaply from morning market at Taman Eng Ann Klang . And oh boy...the photos he posted in his FB ...wow... so beautiful . But sorry ya, Mamarazzi not posting it here without his permission.

Anyway, last weekend we went there to have a look.

 According to Mr Low, people come to buy adenium as early as 5.40am. If not mistaken, this stall opens from Sunday to Friday. Saturday, the boss will go to the nurseries and source adenium plants.

Hence, people would come very early on Sunday to choose adeniums  with beautiful roots/caudex. Yes, adenium is not only prized for their flowers but also the caudex and roots. The more complicated , the pricier it is.


 What's the price range? Well, according to Mr Low who is a regular there...those on the table are premiums ones and  cost around RM25 to RM30 a pot. Still it's much cheaper than some nurseries that Mamarazzi went to.


 See! So beautiful .


 Those on the floors are priced between RM8 to RM18.  If not mistaken the RM8 to RM10 are not grafted. No tag and colors unknown. Sometimes you will get surprising colors . Just like Mr Low who got a pot for RM6 which turn out to be multipetals yellow blooms.

The grafted ones are between RM16 to RM18 depending on the type. Sometimes they grafted two types of flowers in one plant.


 The one the boss was pointing to was RM25 only and it's multi petal bloom. Mamarazzi was "late" that morning. Those blooming with flowers were grabbed up by the early birds.



However, Mr Low was there. He helped Mamarazzi choose a few. The trick learnt from Mr Low is that to choose the ones that you think you want and put one side first or else it would be grabbed by other. After that, can bargain with the boss for a lower price.

Now Mamarazzi is looking forward to the blooms. To seed what surprise is install.


After "borong-ing" the adeniums, we went to nearby BKT restaurant for breakfast. The famous Restaurant Mo Sang Kor. Didn't eat much coz not really suit our taste buds.


Speaking of buds... it seems like my "big" tooth "buds" is coming up. Back gums are swollen and painful .


Feeling feverish and coughing too. Hope it will be okay soon. 

Oh ya...the location of the adenium stall is right in front of Pasar Persendirian Eng Ann Enterprise, Lorong Kasawari 4, Taman Eng Ann, Klang. It's operated by an old man.
