Sushi Ingredients
Crab Filament, Carrot, Japanese Cucumber & Fried Egg
The above photos are the ingredients of making the hand-rolled sushi. These ingredients are available at the food department of the Jaya Jusco Supermarket.
Remember to buy the rice and the vinegar which are imported from Japan or South Korea. Otherwise the taste of the sushi wouldn't be so nice. Don't use the seaweed which is other than green in colour for rolling the sushi.
In case you dislike the ingredients that I suggested, you can replace them with your favorite ingredients that suit your taste.

NUTP Is The Protector Of Teachers In Malaysia

NUTP Malaysia
Before I retired from teaching, I was always not on the same track with my boss. Perhaps, this was because our frequencies were different.
Serving as a teacher for decades, I had encountered countless problems that were created by the school heads. Fortunately I was a member of the National Union Of Teaching Profession (NUTP), otherwise I would had been in hot water long ago.
NUTP Malaysia
It can't be denied that the NUTP is the "guardian" and "protector" of the teaching profession and education in Malaysia. If I am not the NUTP's member, my teaching life would be very miserable.
"Unity is strength" is a truth. The consequence of lack of unity is pitiful. If you are a Malaysian teacher and have not yet joined the NUTP, feel free to apply immediately to be protected.

Delicious Sushi With Love

SushiTime really flies, I had been serving as a teacher for decades. Fortunately, I no longer need to worry about my routine duty because I had retired.

A few days ago, a student of mine paid me a visit. The student brought along a box of sushi to me. I was so delighted. After retirement, my student was still so grateful to me. It was out of my expectation.

As a teacher, I never dreamed of becoming rich. As long as I was devoted to my duty, my commitment as a teacher would not be neglected. In case my students show their token of appreciation to me that would be a pleasant surprise.

The Pearl Of The Orient : Hong Kong

Hong KongI went to Hong Kong with my family in December 2001. This was the first time that I went abroad by plane. This trip cost me around 10 thousands RM but I brought back a sweet memory after returning from Hong Kong. My family and I really enjoyed the trip to Hong Kong.

Hong Kong was reputed as The Pearl Of The Orient. It was a British colonial since 1842 after the signing of the Treaty Of Nanjing.

Hong Kong had been returned to China in 1997. Before the transfer of sovereignty, the residents of Hong Kong worried about their future. The government of China reassured them by promising to maintain the status quo.

Today, the charming Hong Kong still remain the same as before. You can sing and dance as usual. You even can bet on horse races as you like.

This article is the preface of my Hong Kong trip. I will write about all the places in Hong Kong that I had visited one by one.
