Munggo with Gata and Kalabasa (mung beans with coconut milk and squash)


The windows of our bedrooms face due east so we get the sunrise every day. As much a sunrise as you can get in the middle of the city. Which, actually, has its own special magic…at least to me. Rays of light suddenly bursting into being like so many bright yellow arms reaching around towers of concrete, all at once being reflected and fractured and reflected again, like a beam going through a thousand prisms, against the steel and glass of the stalwart urban sentinels I call my neighbors.

I love the dawn. Even if, despite all my best efforts and intentions, I am still not naturally a morning person. I struggle to wake up, greedily and groggily clinging to the last vestiges of my slumber. I try vainly to develop and internal body clock. To date, much to my frustration, it hasn’t kicked in. Perhaps that’s why I love having the morning’s new light creep through my bedroom shades, its fingers coaxing me out from under the covers.

Dawn, unlike any other time of the day, is filled with such golden promise. Old melancholies fade away and new potential beckons. It is that short, sweet, moment that light has resolutely claimed from darkness, but in which the whisper and allure of dreams still somehow hold subtle sway. In the calm before the clamor of the rest of the world crashes in, you can hear the voices that tell you to believe in what lies in the deepest places of your heart, and in that magic hush anything is possible.

This dish is not something I would typically associate with the dawn, but it is a great comfort food. A hot bowl of this, scooped over a generous serving of rice, can put me in the same calm place.

Munggo with Gata and Kalabasa
(mung beans with coconut milk and squash)

200 grams munggo (mung beans)
1 bay leaf
2 red onions, peeled, one chopped and one quartered
1 inch piece of ginger, peeled and sliced
Canola oil (or any other mildly flavored vegetable oil)
5 cloves garlic, peeled and finely chopped
1/4 cup hibe (small dried shrimp)
400 ml coconut milk
450 gram wedge of squash, peeled and chopped into about 1-inch cubes (350 grams, cut weight)
1 bunch malunggay (moringa), leaves picked (yields about 2 cups leaves)
1/2 – 1 tablespoon patis (fish sauce)

- Rinse munggo and pick through for little stones. After I check for stones I like to rinse the beans through a sieve to get rid of any dirt.
- Place munggo, bay leaf, the quartered onion, and the ginger in a saucepan or pot that will hold double its volume. Cover with cool water until about 2 inches above the beans. Set pot on medium heat, cover, and cook until beans are soft. This can take anywhere from 30 minutes – 1 hour (depending on how old your beans are). Check occasionally and stir to make sure it is not drying out and sticking. If it seems to be drying out just add more water. Once the beans are soft, set aside. At this point the level of liquid should be just at the same level as the beans.
- Heat a kawali (wok) or saucepan over medium-high heat. Add a few swirls of canola oil and, when hot, add the chopped onion and garlic. Sautee, stirring, until the onion is soft and transluscent. Add the hibe and keep sautéing until the shrimp is coated in the oil and takes on a little moisture. Add the cooked munggo and its liquid, the coconut milk, and the squash. Turn the heat down to low. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the squash is softened. Add the malunggay leaves and cook for about 15 minutes more.
- Season to taste with the patis (fish sauce). You may need less or more depending on how salty you hibe is. Give it a final stir and take off the heat.
- Serve hot with lots of steamed rice.

I love munggo. I also love coconut milk. The two together work brilliantly. The coconut milk’s silky creaminess is perfect with the munggo’s earthiness. The hibe and the fish sauce give it a rounded savory depth that salt would not be able to replicate. If you can’t find hibe where you are, just adjust the seasoning with a bit more fish sauce. If you can't find malunggay you can use sweet potato leaves or, failing that, spinach. Between the munggo, malunggay, and the squash, this is not only deliciously comforting, but highly nutritious as well. If I weren’t feeding a little one, I also would throw in a couple of green finger chilis (sili pangsigang) to the pot.

I’ve been working on training my body clock to rise “with the sun”. I love those days that I am able to. I sit at my desk, an espresso with steamed milk at my side, its aroma waking my senses up. I raise the shades to let in the new morning. My family is sleeping and the streets below my window have yet to fill with their usual bustle. I hear my dreams whisper to me and, because it is so quiet, I listen in ways I cannot during the rest of the day. And I whisper back.

Grow up

Look over the winter linger in the skies over the city, hate not to give it a butter bread + two raw egg, then into 2 blocks of 5 bottles of Beijing Erguotou warm.

The one three year is coming to an end, in my feet, then wash the socks, then pour the water that wash a foot, then someone says countdown! For is not to understand, to say goodbye before one three years. One four years to be lost to all sense of shame. The window was the sound of fireworks told me: small fart child! You just said goodbye, not goodbye, only to do is to make myself happy in one four years, you know! Yeah, I'm happy. But they found in front of the mirror, forced smile how could not hide a hint of sadness and Men clothing styles.

I really grow up you.

Before New Year's Day was always happy, because this day the town there are always people who get married, people get married means the beautiful bride, a beautiful bride would mean at least 6 beautiful maid of honor. There are beautiful Bridesmaid can flirt, of course, very happy. Cousin married last year, to a little late, just into the new premises will see a base put an arm around with a girl, was furious, pointing to a base shouted: beast, let go of the two girls, let me! Girls immediately smile. But shame, met a talking girl, brother was almost Ya trafficking to her good sisters, thanks to the timely grandma, grandma said: "two ah, your cousin drunk, to accompany him to the bar! Also, your father gave you find a good wife, don't cheat others girl here. Is to be defeated and flee quickly. After drinking to remember the 2 class, heart a ruthless, wearing a beige windbreaker, open my 2 round of BMW Shopping in Hong Kong, plunge into the absolute black winter night, went to 20 kilometers outside I think an atomic bomb to destroy the second.

Because of drinking, second day of natural sleep wake up, just down the hall, was soil emperor seized: "boy, this is one three years, how do you complete with zero three years!" Depend, I and you know less than a year good, my zero three years of what you know, heart think so, head on a cool, he hands a top hat of little girl, then remembered that last night cold, the eldest sister home girl's hat. Grabbed a hat and ran towards the classroom, the emperor to soil behind the voice: "after six months on the college entrance examination!"

54 meters high altitude falling, good physical said in just 3 seconds, I feel from the soil of the emperor said another 6 months of college entrance examination that sentence to now, also is only 3 seconds. In this 3 seconds, I seem to grow up a lot. Gratitude is a poison to kill, at that moment, he had a dream, and is a nightmare. The nine nine said, Dutch act were lost angel, they could not resist this destruction, will proceed without hesitation to heaven. But I think, for an instant the near death, they must not proceed without hesitation, because everybody knows, the real paradise always in the world.

When I was small, the witch told me, the evening walk to remember to take a lit sandalwood, so will not see not clean things, I said that people do not take, she said the child eye clean, adults are not the same. I'm not fully understand, but I know that the witch would not lie to me, she is so kind man, and all within the book, TV there is nothing like the witch. I still don't get the sandalwood, because television is said incense is a ghost. Just in the past one three years, I often go to a person in the midnight insomnia playing in the street, from the second gate is squeezed out is a street, but I what do not clean is not seen Veda Salon, but once met a pair of lovers in late at night under the lights kiss a murky sky over a dark earth.

Perhaps, I really grew up.

University is a bad place, all kinds of happiness. I have no sun, and occasionally in the heaven accidentally released winter sun under the sun I unique Markov alone. But my sun is entirely in order to not moldy, so I am afraid of sun dehydration. Wong Kar Wai said that there is a bird without legs the world, it only can always fly fly, fly in the wind on the tired. Sleep, once this bird life only, and that time is when it dies. I think who would be so silly, willing to do such a bird! But X said the world, only a fool would not do such a bird. And I, always do not understand what I Is it right? A fool.

花开有时


【一】

电影院门口的花坛里有几株栀子花,我注意它们很多天了。那天上班的路上,无意间在那丛郁郁葱葱的绿植中,发现角落有几株长出青绿色的花苞,我惊喜地发现是栀子花。后来每天上班经过的时候,我都会走近了去看它们几眼,心下盼着,快些看到它们开花的样子。因为有了这份念想,走了无数遍的上班路途,变得明媚而温暖起来。对于栀子花的喜欢,要追溯到童年的时候。老家是农村,风景说不上有多好,但跟城市的钢筋水泥比起来,也算得上是山明水秀。一年四季的田间地头,长满了不知名的野花野草,装点了童年的记忆。关于那些花的记忆,若是全都写上的话,只怕是三天三夜,也是写不完。有时候梦到回乡的场景,回眸的时刻,目光总会停留在一朵带着露珠的野花上,久久凝望。我叫不出它具体的名字,我只知道它的姓氏,是故乡。且不说那漫山遍野的映山红,有多么的招姑娘们的喜欢;也不说那香气四溢的雏菊,芬芳过多少萧瑟清秋里的农家小院;就说这栀子花,单是那抹无暇的洁白,开在芳菲渐尽的四月里,已足以吸引所有的目光为她驻足,何况,还有它独有的沁人心脾的香气。

【二】

童年的四月和五月,是属于栀子花的月份。房前屋后,阳台书桌上,都被栀子花的香味包围,整个村子像是一棵巨大的栀子花树,住在村子里,像住在繁茂的栀子花海里。栀子花不能算是野花,因为在我的印象里,大都是开在农家小院的角落里,或是房前屋后的空地上。若隐若现的洁白,点缀在满树翠绿的叶子中间,香气弥漫方圆几十米。我家老屋门前的空地很小,除去晾晒衣服的地方,母亲在角落里用砖头搭起了一个简陋的鸡棚,没有一点多余的地方,用来种植没有实际用途的花花草草,哪怕是母亲和奶奶都很喜欢的栀子花。对她们来说,养一窝能下蛋的鸡,远比种一棵栀子花要重要的多。隔壁家的院子里种了好几株栀子花树,每年一到四月的时候,每次路过隔壁家院子门口时,总忍不住把头探进院子里,朝着栀子花树的方向望几眼。有时,趁着院子里没人的时候,就快速地溜进去,从那枝头上揪下几个青绿色的花苞,在那只被拴住的大黑狗的狂吠声中,掉头就跑。回到家找个白瓷碗装上清水,把花苞放进去,漂浮在水面上,用不了几天,那青绿色渐渐褪去,慢慢变得洁白,一点点在碗里盛开。

全部开起来时,整个房间里,都是淡淡清雅的香气。母亲若是看到了,问我这花是从哪里来的,我是不能说实话的。隔壁与我家虽是亲戚,是爷爷哥哥的几个儿子,还有大奶奶,但是在我很小的时候,他家建房子的时候,把院子的围墙圈到了我家门口的地面上,为了争这方寸之地,父母跟他们发生了很激烈的争吵,后来各自退让一步,门前的空地没有被他们占去很多,但是从那以后,两家人之间便不曾有过来往。血缘上的亲戚关系,抵不过现实中一块小小的土地。但是大人们之间的矛盾,丝毫不影响我对隔壁家院子里栀子花的喜欢。在小小的我眼里面,他们家的栀子花,与街上卖的栀子花没有任何的区别,即便母亲曾一次次告诉我,要是敢去折他们家栀子花的话,小心一顿好打。我还是一次次冒着被母亲挥着手中的树枝追打的危险,将隔壁院子里的栀子花偷到家里的窗台上。而隔壁家的堂姐们,有时见我眼巴巴望着院子里的栀子花,也会摘一把长出了白色的花苞,走过来塞到我手里,说,别跟你妈说是我给的,不然她又骂你。我把花苞攥得紧紧的,飞快地跑回家牛欄牌奶粉

【三】

其实不光是我,村里的女人们,也都是极为喜欢栀子花的。童年的记忆里,每到栀子花开的季节,上到头发花白的老婆婆,下至蹒跚学步的小女孩,发间或是衣服领子上,都会别着一朵绽放的栀子花,有时候手里面,还会再攥上一朵,走到哪里,就将香味带到哪里。栀子花一开,村里所有的女人,都变成了走动的栀子花。不,她们比栀子花还美。因为平日里的劳作,她们的皮肤被晒得黝黑,胳膊和腿也结实而粗壮,没有书上写的女子婉约之美,但是这是健康之美,劳动之美。男人们大都为了养家糊口出门在外打工,家里的农活,就都落到了女人们的身上。这些能干的女人们,将田间地头打理得生机盎然,水稻油菜麦子棉花,一样也不落下。菜地里的蔬菜更是多得吃不完,有的挑到街上去卖,卖不掉的,就洗洗晒干,丢到坛子里洒上一把盐,过个十天半月,就成了一坛子香脆可口的咸菜。一家人的日子,在女人们勤劳的双手下,过得风生水起。男人们赚回家的钱,一般都用在孩子们的学费上,或是给庄稼买肥料上,一点也不会乱花,日子过得紧紧巴巴。可是到了栀子花开的时候,那年迈的老婆婆跨上一篮子水灵灵的花朵,往那一排郁郁葱葱的蔬菜间一摆,扬起声音叫卖,价格不贵,一毛钱一把。

不一会的功夫,便销售一空。奶奶和母亲便时常买栀子花,一碗花开了,渐渐泛黄,就换一碗新的花苞,几乎不会断。早上起床之后,母亲给我梳头前,从碗里取出一朵开了的栀子花放在一旁,马尾绑好之后,将花朵别进皮筋里,被乌黑的头发一衬托,显得更加的洁白。那时只有到过年的时候,母亲才会舍得拿出几块钱,从小摊上给我和妹妹各买一两朵头花,而她自己,连发夹都不舍得买一个。便宜的栀子花,是我们共同的饰品。母亲的头发有些自来卷,乌黑浓密,即便是用一根红绳子缠绕的皮筋随意绑在脑后,也很好看。有了栀子花的装饰之后,就更加的美康泰導遊。奶奶那时总是齐耳的短发,梳得一丝不乱,用一根黑色的发箍箍住,齐齐地压在耳后,用一枚黑夹子将栀子花根部别在耳边的发箍上,看起来干净而清爽。奶奶守了大半辈子的寡,过了一辈子清苦的日子,栀子花是她唯一的装饰品。

【四】

我种过一棵栀子花树,或者更确切的地说,是很多棵,可是只有这一棵成活了。我的栀子花树种在叔叔家的后门口,上小学时,我跟着奶奶住在叔叔家。那时,父亲和母亲带着弟弟外出打工,我因为要上学,就跟着奶奶住。叔叔家的房子是奶奶赚的钱建的,父亲成家的时候,叔叔还小,奶奶就跟着村里的人们,去江浙一带富庶的地方要饭。说是要饭,其实大多时候,要到的都是米,也有钱。奶奶把要来的米换成钱,加上要来的零钱,几年下来,居然存了不小的一笔。再从亲戚家东拼西凑一点,叔叔那两间平房,就这么建了起来。若是没有这几间房子,叔叔估计连亲也是娶不到的。房子建好那天,奶奶总算松了一口气。房子坐落在穿村而过的那条大河边,大门朝着河水,打开后门,是一片广袤的田地。屋后有不大的一块空地,我是极为欢喜的。央着奶奶从别人家讨来一株栀子花苗,兴奋地找来铁锹挖出一个土坑,小心翼翼地将花苗种植起来。之后每天给它浇水,用鸡粪施肥,盼着它早日长大。

可是没想到欲速则不达,种了好几株,都活了没多久就发黄枯死了,后来才知道,是浇水施肥太勤了,栀子花是不需要太多肥料的。后来种了一棵就不大去管了,只是看见它的叶子上有虫眼的时候,抓一抓趴在枝干上肥大的青虫,偶尔施一点点的肥,竟真的成活了。这棵栀子花树到现在还活着。去年过年回家的时候,我看见了它,长得比我还要高,叶子是墨绿的,看起来很有生命力,我站在树下,想象着它开花的样子,一树的洁白,极其的美。可惜的是奶奶已经去世了,叔叔一家常年在外,而我,也只有在过年的时候才会回一趟家。到了栀子花开的时候,家里已是空无一人。这满树的花朵,守着空荡荡的屋子,寂寞地开败。

【五】

离家以后就很少见到栀子花了,每次回家的时候都是过年,别说栀子花,就连田间地头的野花,也是见不到的。到过的几个城市,虽然都有不同程度的城市绿化,一年四季,路边的绿植里,少不了的姹紫嫣红,三色堇,杜鹃,格桑花,太阳花,菊花……还有很多叫不出名字的,竞相开得鲜艳热烈,但栀子花却是极少的。那些关于栀子花的记忆,随着年纪的增长,渐渐被岁月的尘埃掩盖在遥远的记忆里。电影院门口的那几株栀子花,唤醒了沉睡已久的记忆牛欄牌回收。终于在前几日看到那花苞隐隐露出白色的时候,我忍不住走过去,不顾路人异样的目光,摘下了几朵。

我摘得小心翼翼,没有折下一片叶子,应该没有弄疼栀子花树,我在心里想着,栀子花树,你应该不会怪我的吧,要怪,也只怪我太喜欢你开出的花了。没有白瓷碗,我找来一个有着黄白相间花纹的塑料碗,把栀子花养在里面,放在房间的柜子上。晚上临睡前,闻着房间里淡淡的栀子花香气,思绪涉着这香气,漂到遥远的故乡,久远的童年里。闭上眼睛,开满了栀子花的家乡,那个山明水秀的村子,就这么出现在了眼前。我裹着乡愁,枕着栀子花的香味,酣然入睡。

Drysdale beaten at Henley


Olympic champion single sculler Mahe Drysdale's hopes of a fourth Henley title have been scuttled by Azerbaijan rower Aleksander Aleksandrov in the first round of the Diamond Challenge Sculls.

Aleksandrov, who finished fifth at the London Olympics, clocked 7min 41sec in beating Drysdale by 4-1/2 lengths at the Royal Henley Regattaip networking HK.

Henley is raced over a 2112m course and uses a knock-out formula rather than the traditional six-lane racephone cover cases.

Drysdale is working his way back to rowing fitness after an extended post-Olympic break, which included contesting the gruelling multi-discipline Coast-to-Coast in February and the Port Macquarie Ironman in Maybeauty wigs.

He was also conquered Africa's highest mountain, the 5895m Mt Kilimanjaro, as part of a New Zealand charity fundraising expedition late last month.

Drysdale was disappointed but not surprised with his result.

"I hate losing but I am actually quite pleased with the standard I am at now. This sport is so hard it would be crazy to come back with only a month's training and beat the top guys," he said.

Drysdale's first race back was last week at the Holland Beker regatta in Amsterdam, where he finished third.

Kiwi rower Joseph Sullivan, who combined with Nathan Cohen to win Olympic gold last year in the double sculls, was also knocked out of the Henley singles, falling by five lengths to Slovenia's Luka Spik.

There was better news in the men's pair for New Zealand, as Hamish Bond and Eric Murray continued their world domination with an easy 7min 28sec win over Britons Matthew Bedford and Wilf Kimberley.

Emma Twigg had to work hard for her three-quarter length win over South African Ursula Grobler, clocking 8min 35sec to progress through to the next round.
