Trying New Local Recipe

This is my experiment last weekend. Someone so nice gave me Bambangan (thank you), a perfect one, asam manis yang sedap.Basar lagi tu <--- dunno="" explained="" how="" lol="" span="" to="">. Then after eating the isi, tinggal kulit la kan? So, I remember one time an old lady selling bambangan at Tamu Mermbakut told me that… the kulit can bikin sayur and guring with ikan masin . Hmm… macam sedap kan?

So last weekend the experiment begin. First, I was looking for an ikan masin inside my fridge. Ada. but I found something else, dried sotong, which is long queue to be cook (balik-balik kana putung barisan) coz I dunno how to cook it btw. :P

So my recipe is “ Bambangan Skin with Dried Sotong”. Hahaha! Lets start!

The One and Only

This was taken on the Friday the 7th. February 09, 3 days before the full moon. I was hopping to snap the moon daily till the full moon, but it was raining and thick cloud during the next two night. But anyway, i'm glad i did catch this. :)



Tommorow is Friday, and its 13th. hmmm...What's wrong with it anyway? Well, maybe we can kurik the info here. from wikipedia. ;)

Phobia
The fear of Friday the 13th is called paraskavedekatriaphobia,[1][citation needed] a word derived from the concatenation of the Greek words Paraskeví (Παρασκευή) (meaning Friday), and dekatreís (δεκατρείς) (meaning thirteen), attached to phobía (φοβία) (meaning fear). This is a specialized form of triskaidekaphobia, a simple phobia (fear) of the number thirteen, and is also known as friggatriskaidekaphobia. The term triskaidekaphobia was derived in 1911 and first appeared in a mainstream source in 1953.[2]

History
According to folklorists, there is no written evidence for a "Friday the 13th" superstition before the 19th century.[3][4][5] The earliest known documented reference in English occurs in an 1869 biography of Gioachino Rossini:
[Rossini] was surrounded to the last by admiring and affectionate friends; and if it be true that, like so many other Italians, he regarded Friday as an unlucky day, and thirteen as an unlucky number, it is remarkable that on Friday, the 13th of November, he died.[6]
However, some folklore is passed on through oral traditions. In addition, "determining the origins of superstitions is an inexact science, at best. In fact, it's mostly guesswork."[7] Consequently, several theories have been proposed about the origin of the Friday the 13th superstition.
One theory states that it is a modern amalgamation of two older superstitions: that thirteen is an unlucky number and that Friday is an unlucky day.
In numerology, the number twelve is considered the number of completeness, as reflected in the twelve months of the year, twelve signs of the zodiac, twelve hours of the clock, twelve tribes of Israel, twelve Apostles of Jesus, twelve gods of Olympus, etc., whereas the number thirteen was considered irregular, transgressing this completeness. There is also a superstition, thought by some to derive from the Last Supper or a Norse myth, that having thirteen people seated at a table will result in the death of one of the diners.[4]
Friday has been considered an unlucky day at least since the 14th century's The Canterbury Tales,[2] and many other professions have regarded Friday as an unlucky day to undertake journeys or begin new projects. Black Friday has been associated with stock market crashes and other disasters since the 1800s.[5][8] It has also been suggested that Friday was the day that Jesus was crucified. [9]
On the other hand, another theory by author Charles Panati, one of the leading authorities on the subject of "Origins" maintains that the superstition can be traced back to ancient myth:
The actual origin of the superstition, though, appears also to be a tale in Norse mythology. Friday is named for Frigga, the free-spirited goddess of love and fertility. When Norse and Germanic tribes converted to Christianity, Frigga was banished in shame to a mountaintop and labeled a witch. It was believed that every Friday, the spiteful goddess convened a meeting with eleven other witches, plus the devil - a gathering of thirteen - and plotted ill turns of fate for the coming week. For many centuries in Scandinavia, Friday was known as "Witches' Sabbath."[10]
Another theory about the origin of the superstition traces the event to the arrest of the legendary Knights Templar. According to one expert:
The Knights Templar were a monastic military order founded in Jerusalem in 1118 C.E., whose mission was to protect Christian pilgrims during the Crusades. Over the next two centuries, the Knights Templar became extraordinarily powerful and wealthy. Threatened by that power and eager to acquire their wealth, King Philip secretly ordered the mass arrest of all the Knights Templar in France on Friday, October 13, 1307 - Friday the 13th.[3]
The connection between the superstition and the Knights Templar was popularized in the 2003 novel The Da Vinci Code, however, some experts think that it is relatively recent and is a modern-day invention.[8][2][7] For example, the superstition is rarely found before the 20th century, when it became extremely common. One author, noting that references are all but nonexistent before 1907 but frequently seen thereafter, has argued that its popularity derives from the publication that year of Thomas W. Lawson's popular novel Friday, the Thirteenth,[11] in which an unscrupulous broker takes advantage of the superstition to create a Wall Street panic on a Friday the 13th.[3]

Anyway, have a safe friday tomorrow. (palis-palis on something bad) :)

Visit to Beaufort


Beaufort meaning "The Beautiful Fort"[1] in old French, it is a town and a district located in Interior Division of Sabah in east Malaysia on the island of Borneo. Its population was estimated to be around 61,698 in 2000. It is a quiet provincial town about 90 kilometres south of Kota Kinabalu, with shophouses built high above the roads to avoid the periodic floods of the Padas River (Sungai Padas). Originally set up to help economic development of the interior of Sabah, its early prosperity was closely linked to rubber cultivation. During World War II, it was the site of one of the most important skirmishes of the war between the Japanese and Australians. Its current prosperity depends on the booming palm oil industry.
Beaufort is a stop on the North Borneo Railway operated by Sutera Harbour Resort. The railway station in Beaufort dates from 1905. The normal daily service is operated by the Sabah State Railway Department (Jabatan Keretapi Negeri Sabah).
Medical services are provided by the 140 bedded government hospital which has primary care and basic secondary care services. There are three private practitioners within the town area.
Beaufort is usually visited by tourists for white-water rafting through the nearby Padas Gorge on the Padas River which is rated as a Grade 2 to 3 river.
The open-air market, locally known as tamu is held weekly on every Friday evening until Saturday afternoon. Local produce such as fresh fruits, vegetable, fresh meat and live poultry are sold. The days of this weekly community occasion differ from district to district. Beaufort is also known in Sabah for its Chinese dish called Beaufort Mee, a noodle dish served either dry or with soup. It is also famous for its Beaufort oranges, which are featured as 3 large sculptures in the centre of the town.



Beaufort is a sister city of Beaufort, North Carolina.[2] <---(now i know :D)
