Its True Colours Thursday again! This week's colour is Orange.
Well, its still Chinese New Year now. So, the first Orange item I am going to show you is something related to Chinese New Year is Mandarin Oranges.
Mandarin Oranges is a must have item for every Chinese family who celebrate Chinese New Year.
Every time we visit someone on Chinese New Year, we have to bring along 2 Mandarin Oranges with us and before we leave the place we are visiting, the host will return us 2 Mandarin Oranges of their own .
Mandarin Oranges symbolise "大吉大利" (Da Ji Da Li) . With this 2 Mandarin Oranges , we will give them to our relatives/friends to wish them smooth success in everything they do and prosperity for the new year. By returning us 2 Mandarin Oranges of their own, means that they are giving us the same wishes.
With this 2 HUGE Oranges, I would also like to wish all my friends and anyone who happen to drop by my blog,
Smooth success in everything you do and may you have a very prosperous New Year.
All Hoomans to have lots of money and pups to have lots of treats and everyone to be healthy and happy all the time.
I hereby present to you the world famous Singapore dish,
Orange carrots is something I eat almost everyday. They are supposed to be good for us but if you ask me, I would happily opt out of it.
The next orange item is also something I eat often.
Its a very good form of Anti Oxidant so it will help to preserve you youthfulness. (so now you know my beauty secret. hee...) If you want to know more about Wolf berries, please click HERE.
Finally, I would like to introduce to you a herbs with orange flowers. Its called 七针草(Qi Zhen Cao). This plant has sharp needles like thorns on its branches so I am never allow to sniff at it.
The plants is said to have property that can help to kill cancer cells.
We do not know about how effective it is for killing cancer cells, but one of jie jie's cousins had tried and testified that it can cure Piles or Haemorrhoid very well by chewing 2 leaves, raw, daily for a few days. Do anyone care to try? :P
Next week's colour will be Silver. So, stay tuned to see what I can come up with.
