Kembayau Oh Kembayau Part 2

In my previous post I already talked about 'Kembayau'. Today's post still pertaining to Kembayau, but this time I talk briefly on the seed of Kembayau. The first image above is the seed of Kembayau.

The second image is the seed containing the whitish compressed cotyledon that can be eaten. It has a fine flavour crunchy with 'lemak' (fatty taste). I cracked it open using 'parang' (knife). Since the seed has a hard shell, a nutcracker doesn't work on this seed. After cracking it you will find a crunchy greenish nut. Use toothpick to take the nut out of the shell :)

Kembayau oh Kembayau

To what extent are you familiar with the above fruit? I bet that local people will easily recognize the above fruit. The fruit, locally known as 'Kembayau" (Pronunciation Cam-Ba-Yaw). Kembayau is a fruit only found in Borneo especially Brunei Darussalam which is widely diversify and Kembayau has special affinity to Bruneian. Good quality fruit have oily yellowish look when the outer skin is removed. Like durian that can reap profit, Kembayau has made it way to every 'pasar tamu' or open air stall in Brunei.

The way to consume the fruit is first rinse and then soak it in slightly warm water until it soften. Season with salt or sugar. What does this dark purple fruit taste like? The yellowish flesh taste creamy and according to one blogger he said that after tasting Kembayau for a couple of times it has a fine flavour with a sort of potatoish flavour. If you have the opportunity to visit Brunei, try just one and you will know why the demand for this fruit is so great..:)

KeIkhlasan hanya untuk mu

"Sesungguhnya sembahyangku, ibadatku, hidupku dan matiku hanyalah kerana Allah Tuhan seru sekellian Alam". Antara maksud yang terkandung dalam doa pembukaan (iftitah). Khat Thuluth di atas aku siapkan mengisi kekosongan pagi Jumaat selepas sarapan pagi :)

"Surely, my prayer, my devotion, my life and my death, belong (solely) to Allah, master of the whole universe" This is the translation of opening word (doa iftitah) which is recited softly after uttering an intention (niat) and pronouncing takbir. The above calligraphy was done this morning.

Antara Vista, MAC dan Linux

Window Vista yang sudah sedia dipasang disetiap PC yang baru dibeli tu,.. membuatkan kita berfikir yang Vista itu dibekalkan secara PERCUMA, pasal.. it comes pre-installed with your new PC. Biasanya, kita sebagai pembeli tak nampak langsung harga yang DITAMBAH untuk harga OS pada PC yang baru tu..Ahaaaa kena ingat tuuu. Itulah yang menyebabkan Linux yang memang FREE 100% itu semacam tak boleh lawan 'KEFREEIAN' Window sebabnya Window dah dipasang pada setiap komputer seakan-akan nampak percuma. Aku di samping pakai Window OS, aku pakai jugak MAC G5,..yang MAC ni plak, masalahnya bukan apa..diorang punya OS tu terlalu 'terikat' sangat dengan hardware ..itu pasal harga MAC ni agak mahal sikit berbanding harga PC.

Setakat tu lah ceramah singkat aku hari ini.

Doa memohon bahagia di dunia dan di akhirat

"Wahai Tuhan kami! Berikanlah kepada kami kebaikan di dunia, dan kebaikan di akhirat dan peliharalah kami dari azab api neraka" (Al-Baqarah ayat 201)

Our Lord! grant us good in this world and good in the hereafter, and save us from the chastisement of the fire (2:201)

Apa Istimewanya Internet?

Apa istimewanya Internet? Jawapan yang paling mudah ialah 'komunikasi', Internet memudahkan manusia di planet bumi untuk berhubung dengan manusia lain asalkan mereka sama-sama menggunakan khidmat Internet. Mereka boleh berkomunikasi tentang apa sahaja yang terlintas di fikiran, pada bila-bila masa dan dimana pun jua mereka berada. Memang fitrah manusia suka berceloteh tentang sesuatu, sama ada dalam bentuk penulisan, percakapan, lukisan, imej, isyarat tangan atau pun menggunakan cara paling terkini iaitu diterjemah dalam bentuk gelombang eletronik. Justeru tabii kita sebagai manusia kita perlu untuk menceceh, membebel, berborak, bercakap, omong-omong dan bersembang sesama manusia lainnya. Dan apabila kita tidak berceloteh, lazimnya kita akan berperanan pula menjadi pendengar setia. Tidak pernah sebelum ini kita berpeluang untuk dapat berkomunikasi sebegitu 'powerful' seperti di zaman digital ini.

Banyak peluang-peluang yang boleh dimanfaatkan melalui teknologi Internet, lebih hebat dari apa yang kita sangkakan. Internet boleh menjana kekayaan, melaluinya kita boleh memperolehi rakan-rakan baru, barangan untuk dibeli dan laman-laman web yang boleh diterokai. A'laa kulli haaal..macam-macam ada!

Nahasnya pun ada, anda harus berhati-hati! walau bagaimanapun jika kita mengamalkan sikap waspada dan berhati-hati Insya Allah, selamat. Install perisian pencegah virus, pasang firewall, berhati-hati dengan scams, awasi kegiatan berinternet anak-anak kita, Insya Allah selamat lah tuu.

Virus komputer yang ada pada hari ini adalah virus maut yang boleh disamakan seperti virus H1NI1, virus-virus ini boleh merebak tanpa sebarang tanda dan cukup merisaukan dan boleh mengakibatkan fatal kepada komputer dan mengakibatkan untung malang kepada pemilik komputer itu sendiri. Untunglah di sana ada jenis manusia baik lagi waras yang bekerja keras sama seperti pengodam komputer untuk menemukan obat penyembuh virus.

Okey, cukup disini pertemuan kita, bertemu lagi dilain waktu.


What is so significant about the Internet? Simply put, Internet is communication and it gives everyone on the planet earth the power to communicate with anyone else provided that they are on the internet too. So that they can stay in touch with anyone else about anything they want, at any time and any place. The most fundamental human attribute is communication. We are always conversing about something, counting written, spoken, drawn, painted, hand-signaled or brand new, coded in electronic waves. Quite the reverse, when we're not talking, we want to be listening. Never before have we had the chance for open communications that we undergo in this new era of digital communication.

Lot of advantages of the Internet that we can put to good use than we can imagine. There is profit to be made, comradeship to be created, product to acquire and places to surf through. quite literally, there is something for everyone.

But be forewarned of those bad guys on the Internet or in another words there is a risk as well, unless you do something to keep your computer from catching viruses in the first place.

Load up your weapons. Install anti virus software, a firewall, watch out for scams, and protect your children and you should be out of danger.

Today's spyware, adware, trojans and all the other kind of malware are all deadly enemies that can be likened to H1N1 influenza virus. They often diffuse without any apparent contact and can be a annoyance or even fatal to your computer. Mercifully, there are good guys toiling just as hard as the bad guys to invent remedy for viruses.

That all there is to it.

Calligraphic Door Labels

Calligraphic name of my friends (Door labels sized at15 x 5 inch). The door label's design print to high quality glossy paper and sticked into blue-colored styrofoam

Developing digital pictures and designs at home is costly. Even if you have all the right tools such as a photo quality printer, professional printing paper and ink and the proper software (Adobe photoshop), there is no guarantee that developing digital designs will get you the result you are after. That's why I would prefer to send my digital graphic creation to photo service. First, I created the necessary Jawi calligraphic artworks using a variety of digital tools and techniques, when the artworks were all done I sent them to photo service for developing and printing.
