The smooth jawi script, intricately carved with the words ‘Tengku Khazijah binti Seri Maharaja Sultan Abdul Jalil, Riau 1127 (Hijrah)’, shone brightly in the glass case. The words were inscribed onto a silver tray, replete with small motifs. It must have once been an important household item, used by the Riau royal family. Present in the early days of the Riau Sultanate, it would have been used to carry delicious cooked food, and warm drinks for family members, guests and friends.

Juicy, red, succulent strawberries…ever had a craving for some? Malaysians are very fortunate as we do not have to book the next plane ticket overseas as strawberries are grown right at our very doorsteps.

Its low temperatures of 10 to 25 degrees Celsius, with a height of more than 1500 meters make the place suitable for the cultivation of strawberries.

Excitement coursed through my veins, as my small feet lumbered nimbly up the steely white stairs. The ascending air was getting chilly, and the bright sunshine glared menacingly as I treaded gingerly. I was making my way, alone, up the eighty-odd steps of the famed Fort Cornwallis Lighthouse, situated on the northeast side of George Town, Penang. Trying my best to not look downwards I held tightly onto the railings. A camera balanced menacingly around my neck, I whispered a silent prayer.

“Do you know how to choose a good jambu air?” “Here, look at its fleshy back. It must be firm and make sure it is clean.” A bubbly, Henry Goh, our guide at the Desaru Fruit Farm, with his cowboy hat grinned widely.
