Old Town White Coffee which does not have the JAKIM’s halal certification was said by some people as partly owned by a DAP leader.
Ardmand Azha PJU tweeted to YB Ngeh Koo Ham asking him, “why ur white coffee without halal certification”.
Ardmand Azha PJ was referring to the restaurants or kopitiams named Old Town White Coffee.
YB Ngeh replied in Bahasa Malaysia which in English means,“First time I have heard that drinking coffee must have the halal label. Human should not add burdening (troubling) requirements. God gives freedom.”
Next he went on to say that, “God does not say that”, when Ardmand Azha PJ explained that for the Muslims, the Halal certification is a must especially because the Old Town White Coffee restaurants also serve all kinds of food.
What YB Ngeh tweeted is wrong and he should not interfere with other people’s religion.
Muslims must only eat and drink food that is not only halal but ‘toyibbah’ or clean and does not contained anything that is bad for our health like germs or dangerous chemicals.
In Malaysia, JAKIM is the department that awards the halal certification after making sure that the food or food outlet is halal and follow the proper criteria of halal and toyibbah, please click here.
Why does YB Ngeh like to humiliate, insult and sort of making fun of Islam when he does not know the Islamic rules?
And why must he twisted facts about Islam and made it looked like he knows better about Islam than a Muslim?
And this is not the first time he insulted the Muslims and Islam, please click here.
My next question is, what is PAS’s comment about this issue?
Will PAS dare to tell its ally, DAP to tell YB Ngeh to stop insulting Islam and the Muslims?
PAS said that non- Muslim DAP leaders really understand and respect Islam more than the UMNO leaders who are Muslims.
What will PKR leaders say about this?
Pakatan Rakyat leaders claim that they are fighting for human rights, so how about the Rights of the Muslims when PR’s leader insulted us?
To Malaysian Muslims, please look for the JAKIM’s Halal Logo before buying packed food and please do not eat at kopitiams or coffee house without the logo.
Last week my mother bought lots of sweet and juicy ripe strawberries.
She made our favourite strawberry yoghurt drink.
The drink was so tasty.
It is a very healthy drink because the strawberries are rich in vitamin C, fiber, antioxidant and lots of minerals.
Yoghurt has lots of good bacteria called probiotic, minerals and vitamins.
Honey is also a very healthy food.
So when we mix all of them together, they’ll become a very healthy and tasty drink 🙂
Below is the strawberry yoghurt drink recipe.
How to make the tasty drink:
Cut the strawberries and put the strawberries and yoghurt in a blender.
Add the sweet, golden honey.
Add some water or some milk or both.
Blend them until you’ll get a beautiful pink juice.
Serve the drink and enjoy it 🙂
By the way, mom says that you may add some sugar or a pinch of salt to the drink but too much sugar is bad for us.
I think that strawberry yoghurt drink looks as good as its taste.
It will be a nice drink during a hot day as it is in Kuala Lumpur now
Last week Uncle Dollah gave us a long stick and my sister Kafah and I thought that it was a bamboo stick.
Then I found out that it was not a bamboo stick but it was a sugar cane!
I have never seen a sugar cane before.
The sugar cane was about three and a half feet long.
It was divided into nine sections and there were hard nodes in between the sections.
We use sugar cane to make sugar.
We can also make sugar cane juice or eat it raw.
This is how to eat raw sugar cane:
You can use your teeth to peel out the hard skin and bite into the inner part and chew it.
First use a big knife to cut the sugar cane stalk into sections. Your mother has to do all these for you 🙂
Then peel out the hard skin and wash them.
Then cut the sugar cane into small pieces.
Put the sugar cane pieces into a plate.
Then we eat it 🙂 We chew the sugar cane pieces for the juice and throw away the husk in a rubbish bin.
It was really fun to eat raw sugar cane and the juice tasted so sweet.
Thank you Uncle Dollah; and I hope that maybe Uncle Dollah can give me more sugar cane ….
This is how we make our yummy roselle juice from my own roselle plants:
First we need to plant the roselle from roselle seeds.
Then we need to wait for a few months until it grow bigger and bigger.
After a few month, the roselle starts to have flowers.
Later they become fruits.
Wash them until clean.
Let them dry.
Cut them into small pieces.
Put them in a pot.
Add water and sugar.
Blend the roselle pieces.
I love roselle juice very much.
It is better to make our own roselle juice because some people add artificial colouring, artificial flavouring and preservatives to the juice that they sell in supermarkets.
Homemade roselle juice from my own plants is very tasty and rich in vitamin C.
So I have to plant more roselle 🙂
Now I have three roselle plants.
They are very big and healthy.
I planted them from Rosie’s seeds.
My roselle plants have a lot of fruits.
Today I picked 8 fruits from my roselle plant.
The ripe fruits are maroon in colour.
Roselle tastes very, very, very, very, very, very, very sour.
Before they become fruits they were flowers.
The flowers are big, pink and beautiful.
The roselle flower looks like hibiscus.
But hibiscus has a long style in the middle of the flower.
After the flowers fall, the fruits grow.
We can make roselle juice using the fruits.
Roselle juice is very tasty.
It is also a healthy drink.
It is rich in vitamin C and has a natural red colour.
Roselle picking is fun 🙂
And I love apple picking too.
Strawberry is a fruit.
It has a lot of tiny seeds.
Ripe strawberries are red.
Strawberry is very nutritious.

Anyway some strawberries are sour.
We can eat fresh strawberry and also made it into yummy juice.
We can also make strawberry jam, ice-cream and lots of other tasty things to eat.
Strawberry grows in cool places.
In Malaysia , strawberry grows in Cameron Highland , Pahang.
Cameron Highland a is cool place in the mountains of the Titiwangsa Range.
Last time I had a strawberry plant named Strawy but it died.
There is a place named Strawberry in Arizona, U.S.A.
Anyway strawberry cannot grows there because it is too hot.
I have a Roselle plant.
Roselle is a type of Hibiscus.
My Roselle plant’s name is Rosie.
Now Rosie is 0 year old but Rosie is already tall.
Rosie already has two flowers and two fruits.
Roselle’s petals can be eaten.
Rosie’s petals taste very, very, very sour.
We can make Roselle juice.
Hibiscus, specifically Roselle, has been used in folk medicine as a diuretic, mild laxative, and treatment for cardiac and nerve diseases and cancer.
Roselle are rich in Vitamin C.

It has no artificial colouring or flavouring.

Yesterday I went to Uncle Najib’s house to take my father’s auntie for lunch.
My mother showed me some Roselle plants at the house.
There are lots of Roselle flowers too.
The flowers are red like the colour of Roselle drink.
I ate some Roselle catyces.
They are sour and tasty like Roselle drink.
My mother said to make Roselle drink, we cook the flowers with some water and sugar.
I better tell my father to plant Roselle.
By the way I have some celery plants in our garden.
