Hazy song


The song is inspired by the haze pollution cause by neighboring country lately.

hazy song 04PSI is climbing

Ionisers are overwhelming

Everyone grabbing masks and start fanning

PSI three twenty

CSI still on going

Headlines shouting over the sky scraping

No more outdoor fine dinning

No more star glazing

No more picnics and camping

Return me the green

Return me the trees

Return me the sunbeam

Return me the ice cream under the summer breeze

hazy song 02Haze, haze, go away

I’m not used to seeing your face

Haze, haze, go away

I can’t see my lover’s face

hazy song 03

Everyone is choking

Asking doctors to give medical leave

Bosses asking,

What had happened to our sales margin?

Boss, boss, can’t you see we are drowning?  We are drowning!

No more bargaining

No more daydreaming

No more moonlighting

No more lying and blaming

Get back to the street

Get back the sparkling margin

Get back to your own seat

Get back to the client’s face until they can see

hazy song 01Haze, haze, go away

I’m not used to seeing your face

Haze, haze, go away

We got something had to say

PSI – Pollutant Standards Index

CSI – A popular criminal drama in America.

Ikan bilis translated from Maly literally means “fish anchovy”.  It belongs to Anchovies family, tiny shape in size but full of iron and calcium in nutrients.  It is also an essential ingredient in a local delicious dish Nasi Lemak (coconut rice).  I would have thought that Ikan bilis is the smallest fish that I have known of, but surprisingly it is not true.

11) Who named the “King of Fruits”!


Alfred Russel Wallace (1912)

Regarded by many as the “King of Fruits”; durian, is native to Brunei, Indonesia and Malaysia.  British naturalist, Alfred Russel Wallace famously described its flesh as “a rich custard highly flavoured with almonds”.
During his stays in Malay Archipelago (1869) Wallace described “to eat durians is a new sensation, worth a voyage to the east to experience’.

Durian

The flesh is best when it’s ripe, though it can also be consumed at various stages of ripeness.  The unripe fruit makes good vegetables.  It is also used to flavour wide variety of Southease Asian cuisines.  The seeds can be eaten when cooked.

Durians

Durian is a spiky round or oblong husk containing pods in yellow custard-like fruit.  The trees are tall and straight.  Durians orchards are danger zones often covered with nets.  As the fruit strikes a man in its fall is strong enough to kill.
The fruit emits a pungent distinctive odour, you either like it or hate it.  It has a very unique character.  Some regard it as pleasantly fragrant; others find the aroma disagreeable.  The odour has led to the fruit’s banishment from hotels, airline cabin and public transportation. 
It is no wonder Wallace the “father of biogeography” in the letter to Sir William Jackson Hooker stated – “If I had to fix on two only as representing the perfection of two classes, I should certainly choose the Durian and the Orange as the king and queen of fruits.”

Durian flowers are usually closed during the daytime, I believe it is because the King needs more rest than others!
