'roti canai...emm yummy..

Roti canai (pronounced "chanai," not "kanai") is a type of flatbread found in Malaysia, often sold in Mamak stalls. It is identical to the Singaporean roti prata and a close descendant of Kerala porotta.Roti means bread in Hindi, Urdu, most other North Indian languages, and Malay.The dish is composed of dough containing copious amounts of fat, egg, flour and water. The form of fat used is usually ghee (clarified butter). The entire mixture is kneaded thoroughly, flattened, oiled and folded repeatedly. It is then allowed to proof and rise, and the process is repeated. The final round of preparation consists of flattening the dough ball, coating it with oil and then cooking on a flat iron skillet with a lot of oil. The ideal roti is flat, fluffy on the inside but crispy and flaky on the outside.

PUA beautiful!!!

Pua Kumbu is a traditional patterned multicolored ceremonial cotton cloth used by the Iban, made and used in Sarawak, Malaysia. Pua kumbu are woven by Dayak women and are considered to be sacred objects. They are used for lifecycle rituals and special events including the birth of a child, coming of age celebrations, receipt of an important item to a longhouse, and to screen a corpse that is being laid out in a longhouse prior to burial.Throughout history, women have been inextricably associated with textile arts. No matter what materials are used, no matter what form of culture is referenced, their participation has remained constant in influencing, shaping and evolving numerous varied techniques. When one reviews historical and anthropological literature, this fact is seldom recognised or is relegated to rather insignificant cultural importance. Thus it is not suprising that although much has been written on Iban culture, emphasis has been on male dominated activities. As a result, very little research has been made into women's contribution on the technical aspects of weaving, there has been little study of the pua kumbu in a cultural and social context. Discussion and ensuing interpretation of the symbolism has been limited to the study of individual motifs rather than examining the pua composition as a whole.According to legend, some twenty-four generations ago, Singalang Burong, the God of War, taught his grandson; Surong Gunting the use of the most sacred of all the pua, the lebor api, after a period of warfare. The tradition was established that heads captured in war should be received ceremonially on this cloth, which has to be dyed a deep red colour, and was often woven using a special supplementary weft technique (sungkit). This pua was woven at Batu Gelong the longhouse abode of the goddesses of weaving, Kumang, Indai Abang, and Lullong, Indigo (tarum) and other plants used for dyeing were planted around the longhouse. Beyond the longhouse on the farm, cotton (taya), the most important crop next to padi, was planted

Sometimes late at nightI lie awake and watch her sleeping
She's lost in peaceful dreams
So I turn out the lights and lay there in the dark
And the thought crosses my mind
If I never wake up in the morning
Would she ever doubt the way I feelAbout her in my heart
If tomorrow never comes
Will she know how much I loved her
Did I try in every way to show her every day
That she's my only one
And if my time on earth were through
And she must face the world without me
Is the love I gave her in the past
Gonna be enough to lastIf tomorrow never comes
'Cause I've lost loved ones in my life
Who never knew how much I loved them
Now I live with the regret
That my true feelings for them never were revealed
So I made a promise to myself
To say each day how much she means to me
And avoid that circumstance
Where there's no second chance to tell her how I feel
If tomorrow never comes
Will she know how much I loved her
Did I try in every way to show her every day
That she's my only oneAnd if my time on earth were through
And she must face the world without me
Is the love I gave her in the past
Gonna be enough to lastIf tomorrow never comes
So tell that someone that you loveJust what you're thinking of
If tomorrow never comes

Aurora are natural coloured light displays in the sky, usually observed at night, particularly in the polar zone. They typically occured in the ionosphere. Some scientists called them "polar aurora". Aurorae are produced by the collision of charged particles from Earth's magnetosphere, mostly electron but also proton and heavier particles. The auroras is a common occurance in the Poles. It is occasionally in temperate latitudes, when a strong magnetic storm temporarily expand the auroral oval. The ultimate energy source of the aurora is the solar wind flowing past the Earth. Images of aurora are significantly more common today due to the rise of use of digital cameras that have high enough sensivities.

Tulipa, commonly called Tulip, is a genus of about 150 species of bulbous flowering plants in the family Liliaceae.The native range of the species includes southern Europe, north Africa, and Asia from Anatolia and Iran in the east to northeast of China. The centre of diversity of the genus is in the Pamir and Hindu Kush mountains and the steppes of Kazakhstan. A number of species and many hybrid cultivars are grown in gardens, used as pot plants or as fresh cut flowers.
The species are perennials from bulbs, the tunicate bulbs are often produced on the ends of stolons and covered with glabrous to variously hairy papery coverings. The species include short low growing plants to tall upright plants, growing from 10 to 70 centimeters (4–27 in) tall. They can even grow in the cold and snowy winter.
Although tulips are associated with Holland, both the flower and its name originated in the Ottoman Empire.Tulips originate from mountainous areas with temperate climates and need a period of cool dormancy. They do best in climates with long cool springs and early summers, but they are often grown as spring blooming annual plantings in warmer areas of the world.

A star is a massive, luminous ball of plasma. The nearest star to Earth is the sun, which is the source of most of the energy on Earth. Other stars are visible in the night sky, when they are not outshone by the Sun. For most of its life, a star shines because thermonuclear fusion in its core releases energy that traverses the star's interior and then radiates into outer space. Almost all elements heavier than hydrogen and helium were created by fusion processes in stars.A star begins as a collapsing cloud of material composed primarily of hydrogen, along with helium and trace amounts of heavier elements. Once the stellar core is sufficiently dense, some of the hydrogen is steadily converted into helium through the process of nuclear fusion.
Historically, stars have been important to civilisation throughout the world. They have been used in religious practices and for celestial navigation and orientation. Many ancient astronomers believed that stars were permanently affixed to a heavenly sphere, and that they were immutable. By convention, astronomers grouped stars into constellations and used them to track the motions of the planet and the inferred position of the Sun.

Germs are lurking in far more places than many of us realize and touching everyday objects or even just shaking hands can make us ill.
Many people mistakenly believe that they pick up most of the germs that make them sick through the air, when someone else sneezes or coughs. In reality, 80% of the germs that cause illness are sored by contact.
These germs spread directly-by shaking hands, for example or indirectly, when we touch an object that has been touched by other people's 'germy' hands.
So where can one find the most germs? The answer is everywhere. From escalator handrails and ATMs to door knobs and even on an armrest of designer sofas in the poshest hotels. In other words, just about every place in the home or outside, has illness-causing germs because germs are a normal part of our world.

Polycyclicaromatic hydrocarbon (PAHs) formed on charred parts and in the smoke from dripping juices, and heterocyclic amines (HCAs) which formed when high heat reacts with red meat, poultry and fish are two common carcinogenic compounds linked to BBQs.If you must grill, hat we need to do is consistently flip and turn food at least once every minute over a lower heat to cook it evenly.Use tongs to flips food, as a fork's food piercing will cause juices to drip out and burn into car.Microwave burgers, poultry, ribs and fish before grilling as this eliminates 90 percent of HCAs, tip researchers at the Lawrence Livermore Laboratory, California.What we don't need to do is dump frozen foods straight to the grill as they will char and the outside before the inside is cooked.Marinate raw meat in thick sauces which can triple HCAs and PAHs, according to the Cancer Triple Center of Hawaii.Instead cover it with the thin, watery sauce for at least 10 minutes prior to grilling.

Time- we all need more of it. Time to work, time to play, time for you, time for me. Time is the most precious of al things. If you are healthier you might be able to achieve a little bit more and if you were healthier, you might be able to achive a little bit more and if you were wealthier you might not have to do anything at all.But just imagine what you could do with just one or two extra hours everyday.Our first super little helper is the internet.The internet and all its wonderful, magical power is high and on the list of any effective time management these days is.It's impossible to understand how very helpful the world wide web really is.Second, courier services.Courier services are a great help for folks who don't like driving around running errands.To everage charge is between RM5 and RM10 per errand.They will come to your doorstep to pick up your stuff and drop it off whereever you need.Third, Home-delivered food.To those off us whom eat to live, there is no more detestable chore, bigger waste of time, than cooking.There is about a good restaurant that deliver to your doorstep. Not all food is edible after delivery, though.One should never order noodles, hotpies or steaks because there are soggy, mushy and miserable by the time they arrive and you can't really blame the poor butler for that.
