Macaroni Soup (Sup Makaroni)


Assalamualaikum and hello to my Readers,
I am sharing with you a light and delicious soup called Macaroni Soup (Sup Makaroni).I have used beef but you can use other type of meat too or omit the meat altogether.Up to you ya.I have added my favourite vegetables and you can replace the vegetables with your favourite. I have not used beef stock coz I want the soup to be light. If you so desire you can use stock to make the soup. Have fun trying this soup.

Here's the video.

The respect for knowledge consequently respect for teachers used to be inherent in Malayan and later Malaysian society in the pre and early post independence era before the 60's. Teachers were highly respected not only because they disseminate knowledge but they were also the catalyst of change, politically and culturally. Teachers were given a free hand to shape and nurture the pupils. Their status was at par with parents as far as the pupils were concerned. No one would ever dream of suing a teacher for disciplining students. That was the era of mental revolution; to break free from the slave mentality due to colonisation.

As the countdown began towards our independence day 31st August, spare a thought and prayers for those teachers that had played a significant role in our politics,education systems and culture. Their books, plays/bangsawan, poems and writings had mobilised and revolutionised the society from illiteracy into a more informed and knowledgeable society.

Respect knowledge and thus respect the person who give us knowledge. That is the true virtue of a student for we are students till the day we die.We are intermitently a student and a teacher as we journey through life. No matter who we are today, bankers,writers even astronauts travelling into space, it all began with someone teaching us the the 3Rs.

Take care of yourself.
Jazakum Allahu Khairan

This is a song that urged children to go to school to seek knowledge and be successful.In those days not many parents send their children to school.
