yum cha

No photo description available.



Went to Yum Cha with my NZ Chinese Women. The boss Danny Liang came personally to ask if the food is alright. The food is alright,
I was surprised by the walnut bun.It was a sweet bun with patterned brown skin. My Hongkong friends have not eaten. They reckon that they use a mold to make the pattern.

I used to write about save the world. Some people go round telling not to eat meat. Now a group have gone too far. Their idiotic actions only tarnish their reputation. They go round supermarkets sticking labels with their extremest ideals.

ABC Letter Y for Yucca

https://abcwednesday.com


When Auckland-based GP Diane Edwards decided to spend a morning  pottering around in her garden, she never expected to end the day having lost half of her hearing. 
The damage was done by the popular sword-leafed yucca plant, which recent medical research highlighted as a surprisingly common cause of nasty ear injuries. 
"I was just clearing the dead fronds off the yucca we had in our pool area," Edwards said. "One of the leaves wouldn't come off easily and as I gave it a final tug it catapulted me backwards and as I fell one of the green fronds snaked into my ear and went right through to penetrate my inner ear."
