(15/9/2013)
 


 Do you know why satay is always accompanied by raw cucumber &
onions?  Barbecued meat promotes cancer.  Raw cucumber & onions
are antioxidants.  So when we eat satay, make sure we eat plenty of
the raw cucumber and onions to counteract the effect.  
 
Actually the kampong people are smart but it just that they do not know
how to explain.  They just say must eat and we rebel because we don't
like to eat.
