How To Make Roselle Juice

10 04 2010

This is how we make our yummy roselle juice from my own roselle plants:

  • First we need to plant the roselle from roselle seeds.

    Small roselle plant

  • 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.

  • Pluck the ripe fruits.

  • Wash them until clean.

  • Let them dry.

    Washed roselle fruits

  • Cut them into small pieces.

  • Put them in a pot.

  • Add water and sugar.

    Boil the roselle pieces

  • Boil them.

  • Blend the roselle pieces.

I love roselle juice very much.

Roselle juice-looks yummy and very healthy too

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.

It is a healthy drink.

So I have to plant more roselle 🙂

Planting our own fruits and vegetables is good.





Roselle Picking

9 04 2010

Now I have three roselle plants.

They are very big and healthy.

I planted them from Rosie’s seeds.

Rosie was my old roselle plant.

It died a long time ago.


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.






My Roselle Plant

I have a Roselle plant.

Roselle is a type of Hibiscus.

28092009(009)I planted it a few months ago.

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.

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.

28092009(007)I love to eat Roselle’s petals.





A(H1N1) :School In KL Closed

22 06 2009

When it first started Influenza A(H1N1) was known as swine flu.

Three students from SJK(C) Jalan Davidson at Jalan Hang Jebat were sicken by the flu.

The school has been closed for 1 week.

The first student got the flu after a holiday in Melbourne, Australia.

Then two classmates got the virus from their classmate who was sicken by the flu.

They were the 49th and 50th cases in Malaysia.

That was called local transmissions.

Local transmission of A(H1N1) virus means someone get the A(H1N1) virus from another person in Malaysia.

2100 students and staffs of the school had been home quarantined.

That means they must stay at home and they cannot visit public and crowded places.

We can try to avoid Influenza A(H1N1) by:

  1. Avoid being in crowded places for example zoos, shopping malls, hospitals, cinemas and parks.

  2. Wash your hands carefully using anti bacteria soap for example Dettol, Protex, Lifebouy and Antabax.

  3. Cover your mouth when sneezing or coughing .

  4. Wear a mask  to cover your nose and mouth.

  5. Take vitamin C and garlic to fight germs.

  6. Take lots of water, fruit juice, tea and herb tea.

The Malaysian government is working hard to avoid the spreading of Influenza A(H1N1) virus in Malaysia.

KUALA LUMPUR: SJK (C) Jalan Davidson at Jalan Hang Jebat here has been closed for a week after two local transmissions of the influenza A(H1N1) virus were detected in the school.

Two other schools with infected students – SRK Assunta 2 in Petaling Jaya and SM Section 9 Shah Alam – will also be closed if authorities discover local transmission of the virus there.

Health Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said eight cases of the virus were confirmed yesterday, including five schoolchildren – an 11-year-old from SRK Assunta 2, a 16-year-old from SM Shah Alam, and three at Class 5 I of SJK(C) Jalan Davidson.

He said all 2,100 students and staff members of SJK(C) Jalan Davidson had been home quarantined, after the National Security Council chaired by Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin agreed to close the school until Friday.





Swine Flu

27 04 2009

Swine flu outbreak started in Mexico.

In Mexico more than 81 people died and more than 100 people were sickened by the flu.

All schools are closed in Mexico City and some other places in Mexico.

In the US at least 11 people had swine flu so far.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) fear that more people will get the flu and cause a pandemic around the world.

Swine flu pandemic can kill millions of people.

A pandemic is a disaster.

The virus that causes the flu is a mix of human, pig and bird viruses.

Some signs of swine flu are high fever, body aches, coughing, sore throat, vomiting and diarrhoea.

We can try to avoid swine flu by :

  1. Avoid being in crowded places for example shopping malls and zoos.

  2. Wash your hands carefully using anti-bacteria soap.

  3. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth because this is how germs get into our body.

  4. Cover your mouth when sneezing or coughing.

  5. Wear a mask to cover your nose and mouth.

  6. Take vitamin C and garlic to fight germs.

  7. Take lots of water, fruit juice, tea and herb tea.

CNN) — Mexican officials are asking citizens to avoid large crowds, refrain from kissing as a greeting and maintain a distance of at least 1.8 meters (six feet) from each other amid growing concern in the country and elsewhere over new cases of suspected and confirmed swine flu infection.

Several countries issued travel notices and tightened restrictions to brace against the virus the World Health Organization is calling “a public health emergency of international concern.”

By Sunday, 81 deaths had been deemed “likely linked” to a deadly new strain of the virus by health authorities in Mexico. Viral testing has confirmed 20 cases, said Dr. Jose A. Cordova Villalobos, Mexico’s health secretary. In the United States, the number of confirmed swine flu cases stood at 11.

In New Zealand, officials said 22 students and three teachers, who returned from a three-week-long language trip to Mexico, may have been infected with the virus.

The 25 students and teachers at Auckland’s Rangitoto College returned to New Zealand via Los Angeles on Saturday.

Fourteen have shown flu-like symptoms, with four “more unwell than others,” said Dr. Julia Peters, clinical director of Auckland Regional Public Health Service.

Health Minister Tony Ryall said 10 students tested positive for influenza A. The specimens will be sent to WHO to determine whether it is H1N1 swine influenza. H1N1 influenza is a subset of influenza A.

The WHO results are expected back by midweek. The group remains quarantined at home.





Roselle

roselle-mama

I love Roselle drink.

The colour of the Roselle drink is red.

Roselle drink is a healthy drink because it is made from flower.

It has no artificial colouring or flavouring.

It is sweet and sour and very tasty.

It has lots of vitamin C.

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.

Ribena is a drink.

It is made from black currant.

Ribena has lots of vitamin C.

Ribena is a healthy drink.

It has no articial colouring.

The red colour comes only from the black currant.

I drink Ribena everyday.

I like to drink Ribena because it is very tasty.
