Hi to all my blog visitors. February last month was a very busy month for me so much so I have forgotten to post any entry.
My gardens needed my attention as the weeds in all the plants and flower pots are as matured and fertiled as the domain growth in the pots.

Who Am I Not To Be

Posted on Updated on

Welcome 2012. I have not posted any entries this year as I was busy with my family errands. My son entered a foundation course in Universiti Teknologi Petronas (Malaysia) in the middle of January just lately.

I am in the process of intergrating (hope I apply this word correctly!) my hobbies of bakery and gardening aspects into a webpage. I have created a page in my Facebook recently under the name of Norri Bake and NRK Garden . Feel free to visit these 2 pages not forgetting to “like” them and I’ll be writing further  about my online cookies….

Both my husband and I are slowly converting our outdoor backyard into a presentably nice and not too overcrowded landscape. We’ve started transferring some potted plants especially the bougainvilleas alongside the wire fence.

Other Benefits Of Pineapple Fruits

Posted on Updated on

Last weekend I went to the market to buy groceries for cooking over the  weekend lunch and dinner. I stumbled upon a stall selling “honey” pineapple. I bought one which is about  2 kg.  Wow!! aren’t they delicious???

This is the pineapple I bought….so delicious!!!

Pineapple is a  remarkable fruit. The fruit is not only enjoyable to eat because of its lush, sweet and exotic flavour, but it may also be one of the most healthful foods available today. If we take a more detailed look at it, we will find that pineapple is valuable for easing indigestion, arthritis or sinusitis. The juice  helps to get rid of intestinal worms.

I’m always interested to look at how pineapple affects other conditions of our body system.

Pineapple is high in manganese, a mineral that is critical to development of strong bones and connective tissue.  A cup of fresh pineapple will give you nearly 75% of the recommended daily amount. It is particularly helpful to older adults, whose bones tend to become brittle with age.

Because of my passion in gardening I also break off the top portion of the fruit or some called it the “crown” and wrapped the bottom with some wet tissue and newsprint papers. I sprinkled the papers sparingly every alternate mornings to make sure they remain fresh. I plan to grow  them ( there are 2 stalks) on the ground of my home when I go back to Subang  Bestari. Don’t know yet whether  the soil in our area are suitable….
