30 January 2006 (Afternoon)
Kampung Sungai Rimau, Sungai Lembing
The Dip in the River

After having a good lunch and nap. The group that conqured Bukit Panorama has decided that they deserved a treat- a 'kampung style'... since it was hot and sunny in Sungai Lembing at that time.. everybody was thinking about how cool and refreshing it would be to have a dip in the water.
At first they were thinking about going to 'kolam cina' which I think was named after the 'people' who built the pool. The source of water for that pool comes from the natural spring water probably from the hill. The only setback is... the pool is located close to the Bandar Sungai Lembing and definitely will be packed with people.
Then someone suggested to go to a more secluded place.. after discussing.. everyone agreed to go to Kampung Sungai Rimau which is located about 5 minutes drive from Kampung Melayu.
By 5pm we were there with only 'keropok lekor' and 'goreng pisang' that we bought along the way. But food was the last thing on the children's minds, everyone was more excited about the water @ river... and Alliya was one of them.

30 January 2006 (Morning)
Bukit Panorama

It was an impromptu decision. We went back to Sungai Lembing for a family get together (BBQ) and suddenly someone suggested this idea.. "to climb and conquer the Bukit Panorama"..we were not ready but Alliya was very excited because this would be her first experience in 'hill climbing'. Alliya's ibu was a little bit reluctant because she left her 'Reebok' at home and has to wear her 'Clarks' semi heels.

The journey was suppose to start right after 'Subuh' but Alliya was having a difficult time opening her eyes at the break of dawn. Finally she was up and it was about 7am. It was still foggy and misty in Sungai Lembing.. and Alliya was still in her pyjamas since we would like to start our journey ASAP. The others have left us and started their journey up.

Alliya was having a slow start, therefore her ayah helped her climbing the first 200 steps. At that height her ibu has stopped climbing completely.. her feet are killing her and she decided to sat down on the steps and started taking pictures using her Oly.. Alliya continued her journey with her ayah and managed to reach Base Camp 1. She wanted to continue to the top but since her ibu and the Oly was left behind, her ayah decided to come down. She was not happy with her ayah's decision but has to agree with him

Image 18
This is the 2nd time that I managed to guess the image correctly. This time the image was posted by Aunty Zain, quite a popular character amongst Fotopages-Malaysia and a very keen learner in photography. Check out her works here
And this is the image Alliya and me had chosen for the Teka Image 18.

These are the clues given
Clue1 : Kadang2 panas, kadang2 sejuk
Clue no 2 (Alliya yang bagi ni) : siapa pegang dia panas
We didn't have to give another clue.. straight away the image was guessed and since Kasuke was the fastest.. she is the WINNER!! Bravo Kasuke at

Image 21

How did I manage to guess Lily's image so quickly? Luck, hardwork, perseverance and good eyes.. I would say this time. There's nothing magical.. I just go to her FP at and went through all the images that she has uploaded, and lucky for me... the image was there.

When I showed Alliya this 21st Image.. straight away she can guess (maybe she was peeking at the original picture while I was editing it). So I thought the subjects are quite easy to be recognized and yet it took almost 5 clues before it was guessed correctly by ND

Within two hours helmyemran of has managed to guess the image correctly. Congratulations helmy!!

Idul Fitri 2005 Series I - Ketupat

Looking for the BEST Palm Leaf
The Palm Leaf
Separating the Leaves
View all 18 photos...
Ketupat is a type of dumpling from Brunei, Malaysia and Indonesia made from rice that has been wrapped in a woven palm leaf pouch which is then boiled. As the rice cooks, the grains begin to expand to fill the pouch and the rice becomes compressed. This method of cooking gives the ketupat its characteristic form and texture of a rice dumpling. Ketupat is usually eaten with rendang (a type of dry beef curry) or served as an accompaniment to satay. Ketupat is also traditionally served by Indonesians and Malays at open houses on festive occasions such as Idul Fitri and Hari Raya Aidilfitri. During Idul Fitri in Indonesia, ketupat is often served with chicken curry, accompanied with spicy soy powder.

There are many varieties of ketupat, with two of the more common ones being ketupat nasi and ketupat pulut. Ketupat nasi is made from white rice and is wrapped in a square shape with coconut palm leaves while ketupat pulut is made from sticky rice is usually wrapped in a triangular shape using the leaves of the fan palm (Licuala). Ketupat pulut is also called "ketupat palas" in Malaysia.

In Indonesia, ketupat sometimes boiled in thin coconut milk and spices to enhance the taste.

1 November 2005

This year Alliya was looking forward to celebrating Idul Fitri maybe because now she understands better what Idul Fitri is all about. She wanted to be included in the preparation and insisted her ayah to prepare the 'Ketupat'... she did try to learn weaving the ketupat but her hands are still too small... therefore she chose the next critical task in 'ketupat preparation' which is the art of putting in the rice. The amount of rice put inside the weaved ketupat (pouch) must be just right if NOT.. the ketupat will end up soggy or just too hard.. but with her Embah (grandmother on her ayah's side) as her Quality Controller.. things turned up JUST RIGHT!!
