Earthquake Borneo

5th June 2015, Friday-  School holidays still on that time (first weeks), and I didn't need to woke up that earlier as school days. So that earlier morning as usual I doing my things. I do warm-up and physical exercises for 30 mint. before I manage the exercise i had to clean up a couple of chick and give they food... Yeah, like others mum do, dyer my laundry at back yard etc. so on.

Then after that I finished my exercise at 7.10 am like that, I heard the noise chick and birds at the back of my back yard. I have a look but nothing actually scared of the chick. Only the birds fly off from my neighbor roof , so really not care. So i needed to shower before going to work.

As I was in a bath/shower room, I felt a bit dizzy for a few second (first wave). I think it probably causing from the exercise. Then the second wave, I saw the door and hanger door swing. I shocked and run to my bed room and wake up my hubby and kids. I was panic. It was fast and shocked. :(

My hubby shocked and asking why I am panic as he stand up from the bed as I told him wake up let's go out- earthquake faster! fast wake.. then he felt the third wave more vibrate than the second vibrate. He also surprise with the vibration he feel. I just grab my boy and run down to outside. My daughters also follow my back running. I'm hearing loud noise from the roof. Gosh that was scary. I saw the clock 7.14 am as I running through to the living room. When we reach out side house, I can see everyone in neighborhood was also outside they house and the vibrating wave stop.

Thank GOD, everyone is safe and there is no damage at neighbor nor ours house.

We go to work as usual and the trauma was still there, my heart beat was running wild. My head at home and I was at work.
I saw the news from friends Via Watsapp and Facebook, it was 6.1 s.r. from Mt. Kinabalu. Some new mention was 5.9 or 6.0.

This wasn't my first earthquake but this one more stronger than my previous one only light wave like dizzy only. (which i cant recalled when the last i had before)

But I also heard about the news about stranded people that hiking at Mt. Kinabalu. Will be on my next stories.

Murut Nabai -Intro

Hello again, before I forgotten all about the stories from my granny (decease) so I blog in here the stories for my younger generation to read or anyone love to know.

Let me introduce to you my great great grandfather on my father side was came from the Murut Nabai Tribe from Kg. Keningau, Keningau. Murut Nabai also known as tribal Murut Nabai from flat ground hinterland at North Borneo as well (head hunter). They good hunter at big forest too and practice witch craft (those old days, now mostly already having they own religious and not longer practice the witch craft anymore).

She said they wedding was decided by they parents as young age (cant recalled) and by these day they falling in love and married with they choose bride/groom. That was another stories to be tell.

Murut Nabai these day famous with the traditional dance with bamboo called "Mangunatip" and "Manggalang".  From my granny stories story (before she pass away) the dancer was perform during certain ceremony like the wedding she said. The origin Manggalang dance was perform by old folks on the tribe, not the younger generations. As the Mangunatip dance was dance by the younger generation as were be headed by patriot of the tribe with his real sharp long knives. 

Oh well, that for today that I can recall.. I can't tell your more than that. To be continues next time..

XOXOXO

My Homemade Green Bean Sprout or Taugeh

Hi again..

To day i'm sharing from my kitchen food. Basically i knowing this a long time already, done it. Only lazy make me stop. But here again i think i started again to feel being like have my own plant of food. So on last Saturday, I had soaked the green bean and close it with no light directed in the bowl. I use big steel bowl and a basket with small hole that can drain the water.
The reason that i used it with the whole because it easier for me to replace the water everyday.






This fresh taugeh can be harvest on the 3rd day.. and to your cooking dish. So yummy and fresh when cook with garlic or ikan masin (salted fish) or ketiau goreng (fied noodle). This method was a good idea for mum that's not often go out to fresh market for veggie also saving more money..

That's for now,.. happy Wednesday.

Green Pickles Ham Choy Vegetable Homemade

Ham Choy

My weekend on 8th March 2015, doing my homemade Green Pickles Ham Choy vegetable. That the only name I knew so far, I not sure in other name..
I bought a big bag of this bitter veggie as cheaper this hot season at Cybrecity pasar sayur, along Jalan Lintas. I guess it probably in around 2-3kg for RM3 each bag. So I manage to do as in the picture. This can be cooked after 7-14 days...
These veggie very popular in Chinese but these day everyone know and love to eat & cooking this dish at Sabah. Me and my family also love it when cook with pork (non-halal) or chicken or fish soup. I get the recipe from my step mum, which very helpful and DIY. If bought out side at pasar only RM1.50 or RM2.00 for 100~200gm  for a few stalk of veggie.
When doing this can be last for months and more saver.. That for my weekends, that always full. I forgotten to take a pic before and during i made this. Perhaps next blog I will updated.
