Dragon Fruit Pudding


Courtesy is the best policy... or... was it honesty is the best policy? Mmmm.. well, both will do, right. Of course honesty is important in life and so does having courtesy is as important.

This morning, on the way back from sending Syahmi to school, I gave way to a car coming out from the housing area near Syahmi's school. It's nothing new actually. I always give way to others whenever necessary and whenever is right to do so, but I don't know why, this morning, I felt very happy doing so. Maybe, I thought to myself, I made the driver happy by giving him way so that he can drop his son to school in good time. If I were him, I too would be grateful to those who did the same.

If you gave way to others, what do you expect from those you've made their life slightly easier? Well to me, just a slight gesture of thanks would be nice.. like putting up your hand or a nod or maybe just a smile will do. What if that fella just went off without a slight hint of thanks, how would you feel? You must be thinking... i shouldn't have given way to that proud person, right? Moral of the story... just by displaying a bit of courtesy can change the way people thinks about you.. Agree?


Last weekend, Harith's (Syahmi's friend) mom, Huda gave me two Dragon Fruits. Since I don't quite like to eat it just like that, I decided to transform the lovely colored Dragon Fruit into something else. I told Huda, if I managed to 'makeover' this fruit into something else, then she'll get to taste it and so she had her share yesterday. Alhamdulillah she likes it. Thanks to Ummi the marvellous and popular food blogger in Kuantan, for sharing this recipe with us. There are a few changes in the recipe though. Allow me to share it here for the reading pleasure of other. Thank you...

  9. Hi MamaFami, where we are we have drivers always giving way to others, and will get a wave, or peace sign or a wink.
    And yes, sometimes there will be people who take it for granted, even return you a stare like we owe him money.
    I always smile back.

    Hey, I love your dragon fruit cake, love the beautiful vivid colours.
    Its really beautiful.
