Sengih Nampak Gigi

From Wikipedia
"Manggis (Garcinia mangostana) adalah pokok tropika malar hijau dan dipercayai berasal dari Kepulauan Sunda dan Maluku. Pokok manggis boleh tumbuh dari 7 hingga 25 meter dan menghasilkan buah berwarna ungu pekat yang boleh dimakan. Buah manggis dikenali sebagai "ratu segala buah" sementara buah durian (Durio spp.) dikenali sebagai "raja segala buah".

Kulit buah manggis agak keras dan dengan garispusat 4-6 cm. Buah manggis terdiri daripada isi warna putih yang berukur garispusat 3-5 cm. Bergantung kepada saiz dan masak, ia mungkin berbiji.

Rasa manggis boleh dibandingkan dengan strawberi putik dengan rasa-rasa manis limau. Buah manggis jarang dijual di negara Barat kecuali di kedai runcit Asia. Kulit manggis menghasilkan warna merah, dan amat sukar ditanggalkan.

Manggis dibuka dengan mengopek bukannya dipotong. Buah manggis dipegang dengan kedua belah tangan, ditekan perlahan-lahan sehingga kulitnya terbelah. Selepas itu, ianya mudah untuk membuka dan mengambil isinya."

'Cause - 'cause - 'cause I remember when we used to sit
In a government yard in Trenchtown,
Oba - obaserving the 'ypocrites - yeah! -
Mingle with the good people we meet, yeah!
Good friends we have, oh, good friends we have lost
Along the way, yeah!
In this great future, you can't forget your past;
So dry your tears, I seh. Yeah!

Sudah Lama

Sudah lama aku tidak menulis. Kerja, kerja dan kerja mungkin menjadi punca. Begitu juga dalam kehidupan aku ini, kerja dan perjalanan hidup mungkin lebih menarik perhatianku untuk mengimbangkan peruntukan masa duniawi dan ukhrawi. Sudah lama aku tidak melangkah kaki untuk majlis ilmu. Sehingga kan sudah banyak halaman kitab Perukunan Jawi ini dibaca oleh Guru. Ahh, sudah lama aku tidak menadah kitab kerana pada masa yang sama aku lebih suka menadah mata dan telinga melihat berita di tv. Ahh, sudah lama aku tidak menulis, karat dijemari ku kian terasa.... Ahh, sudah lama aku tidak kemajlis seperti itu, karat dihatiku semakin kematu...

Commercialism III

East meet West on the streets of Hanoi.

Commercialism II

Commercialism, in Hanoi's way of life.

Emperor's Dress

Spotted, a new shirt waiting for it's owner in a tailor in Hanoi. Make me remember of a childhood story, about Emperor's New Dress...

Hanoi Sceneries II

A scene for a kung fu movie. Albeit the signboard, which can be photoshopped anyway...!


Found, a bag made from recycle materials, hanged on the Hanoi's Long Bien Train Station's wall. Seems ISO14001 was implemented loooong before people in industrial are start talking about it....


Love in what ever language, is still sweet.


Coke, a super brand of world commercialism, is in action in Hanoi, as everywhere else in the world.
