Arrowhead

For the past 2 years sometime around before Chinese New Year, Giant Hypermarket has been selling this ubi-like thing which is said to be imported from China. For a food item from China, it sure does have a strange name - Arrowhead!

Initially, I was kind of reserved when I had a first look. But when I saw more and more people - mostly Chinese - scooping the Arrowheads like it was some kind of treasure, I asked one of them about the strange looking thing. The young Chinese lady smiled and was kind enough to tell me what she knows about Arrowheads, and how to eat it; peel off the skin, slice it thinly, then just fry it as you would with a keropok. And so, emak and I tried it, and indeed it does make a nice snack as it is naturally sweet and crunchy. (correction: Crispy not crunchy!)

Yesterday afternoon, after meeting Doc TA and kerp near The Curve, I went to Giant Kelana Jaya and scooped up some 2 bags of these Arrowheads. One bag, off course, was meant for emak and me. The other bag? Well, early this morning I galloped off to Ulu Subang Jaya to a friend's house. Apart from thinking she would like it too, I think it is only fair for to give her those Arrowheads. Afterall, the cupid fella shot me a couple of times with arrowheads that has her name in it. Perhaps, if he's not willing to shoot the other way, I could always try it this way...sigh.

But honestly, you've got to try the Arrowheads. I don't have any pictures to show but you can read about it here.

Now, for an out-of-topic subject but related to the KLCC incident yesterday: do visit miqdad, Anak Bapa, Elizabeth Wong, Englishsection, and KeADILan, for more videos.

Shah,
All of you at tneCurve yesterday. I was in Taman Tun yesterday afternoon attending a kenduri - a stone throw away from OU. Kalau tau, will surely join sekaki.

Shah,
I don't care about the arrowhead. What is your assessment of the situation tight now, the affairs of the heart stuff, the one about the country can wait. Common out with it. First you give arrowheads then maybe murtabaks and who knows what that would lead to.

I know about the meet from doc. What can I do. I am so far up north tapi kalau ada rezeki kita jumpa.

Salam Pak Mior,

I actually wanted to have it in USJ11 initially but had to change venue.

Anyway, it was more like an impromptu thing. Further, I don't think we have your telephone number. You know my email address; kindly send your number to me. Cikgu might be in town next - don't know when though!

Salam Cikgu,

Hehe...somehow I know you would be commenting as such :) But sigh...susah le orang tengah syok sendiri ni. Er, I mean myself ya.

I thought of not writing about the meet with Doc TA and kerp yet until kerp produce the picture in his blog. But somehow, these fingers of mine have a thought of their own :)

Anyway, we are hoping you would be coming down soon for a meet. That sir, would be very lovely :)
