Assalamualaikum and hello all.It is a pleasure to share with you one of my favourite traditional dish.It is called Glutinous Rice with Spicy Fish Floss(Pulut Sambal). This dish is famous in the Northern States of Malaysia especially around the coastal region like Kuala Perlis of Perlis, Kuala Kedah and Langkawi in Kedah.

The traditional way of serving is by wrapping the glutinous rice together with the sambal in banana leaf. The aroma of the spices in the sambal together with the banana leaf is mouth watering. Hope you will try this dish.

MY THOUGHTS

IS THE CONTAMINATION OFF FUKUSHIMA WATERS SPREADING


Photobucket


As I was cooking the Spicy Fish Floss my thoughts flew to Fukushima. Greenpeace had taken samples of marine life including fish, shellfish and seaweed outside Japan’s 12-mile territorial waters and along the Fukushima coast. The samples were found to contain levels of radioactivity above legal limits for food contamination.This results were accredited by laboratories in France and Belgium.

According to the Japanese authorities radioactivity is being dispersed or diluted in the ocean.Let us hope this is true. Else just imagine the damage and the time taken for nature to restore the damage.

Take care of yourself ya.
Jazakum Allahu Khairan

I wanna share with you a Japanese song by EXILE.Enjoy.

    Re: the spread of Fuskushima radioactive
    Beside urging our government and the international community to take more serious actions to prevent it, let us pray to Allah so that everything and everyone would be safe.

    Thank you for reminding us about this, Umi.

    Amin to the doa. The people of Japan continue to suffer probably for many many years to come.The situation is bad and I can't imagine how we will be able to handle this should this happen to us given the technical know how that we possessed at the moment

    Thank you Harry for sharing your opinion.
