The Swimming Oranges and the Floating Bananas

February 10th, 2009

The last day of Chinese New Year (its called Chap Goh Meh in Hokkien – a Chinese dialect) is also known as the Chinese Valentine’s Day. For most Malaysian Chinese, they knew well of this certain ritual that happens every year on this day. Originated from Penang, Malaysia, this interesting ritual involves tossing tangerine/mandarin oranges or bananas by the singles into the pond or sea or river or any place with water in hope that their future partner will pick up their fruits.

And this year in Malaysia, it was the most happening event for the single men and women in more than 3 places in the state of Selangor itself.

The Worst Escape

February 8th, 2009

Have you watched Escape From Alcatraz before? You know, Clint Eastwood and his cell-made floats that he used to swim across to the mainland. That is smart. Then do you remember watching “Shawshank Redemption” where Tim Robbins dug a hole behind a big poster in his cell for 18 years and crawled 500 yards of stinky sewer to his freedom? That’s dirty but very smart too.

Potato Love

November 17th, 2008

In Boist, Idaho, February 2006, a woman discovered a very unique potato; a heart-shaped potato. Yeap, you heard me, heart-shaped. It’s amazing how it got through the state’s inspection system, as any unique or weird shaped potatoes will be turned into french fries and those which are perfect oval or round-shaped potatoes will be sold in the market. But during Potato Lover’s Month, which is February, this unique potato made it through the “chop chop” and into Linda Greene’s home:

This is Linda Greene with Love Potato, very near her own heart.
So happen that Linda here, loves heart-shaped items, from jewelries to postcards to pendants and anything that is heart-shaped. Well, it seems that this potato has found its new home, loved by this lady.

Its said that Linda placed her precious potato in the basement cupboard and she did mentioned that she was wondering if she plant this potato, will it sprout heart-shaped potatoes too? We are wondering the same thing. Well, she can definitely try and we would love to know the result. But it has been 2 years plus now, and we have yet to hear of the Heart Potato in Idaho.

Here’s a close up of a heart-shaped potato found at the Potato Festival at Sentry Hill Historic House, UK:
