Cherry blossoms

There seems to be more than one type of Cherry blossoms in Hamilton, pink , red and white flowers. The most common one is the weeping willow type as shown here.

Q rice

This is the cheapest rice for sale in Hamilton, at $8.99/10 kgm bag. It is tasteless and difficult to eat. It is called Q-rice and imported from Thailand.

I struggled with it for a while and gave up. Now I use this for feeding the Sparrows in my backyard. I do not recommend it for human consumption.

Plum blossoms

It looks like a bumper year this year for plums. Last year it was Feijoas.

The lemons are also plentiful, all year round.

A FaceBook group, OS

I was kicked out of a Face Book group, MOTP because I mentioned religion and Islam in my comments. Religion and politics were taboo subjects. The admin was Irene Yong. She felt bad because I knew her personally. She reinstated me a week later, after consultation with her IT expert; but the damage was done. I became determined to have freedom of expression on the web. So I started a new group of my own, named Overseas Malaysians. The name later changed to Overseas Sarawakians.
