Of Mulberry, Pucuk Manis and Yao Char Kway
We know that silk worms only eat mulberry leaves and nothing else; but not all of us knew what a mulberry was and only a few of us had tasted them before. The leaves and the fruits are said to be an antioxidant and it’s good for our eyes.
I am lucky that my mom has given me the seed months ago and now the trees are bear with fruits. The ripe mulberries are delicious, sweet and juicy; Sarah likes it at first until she tasted the unripe one.
I better take good care of this plant as I have this natural source of herbal remedy right in front of my house.
This is the first time I saw the fruit of Sweet Leaves Bush (aka “Pucuk Manis”). I never know they did bear fruit!
I still remembered I love using their flowers as “earing” when I was a little girl…hmm…maybe I should let Sarah wear one and snap a photo someday.
Sarah and I fall in love with Chinese cruller (Youtiao/Yao Char Kway) lately. The other day we’ve bought some new flavour of the fried bun; we have chosen yam paste and chocolate filling.
It definitely gives a new twist of it over the traditional flavour.
By the way, this would be my first post of the year, Happy New Year to all of you.
