The Muhibbah Tamu used to serve the Canada Hill squatters and all those who came from Lopeng and even as far as the lambir areas. That is the market I go to for my fresh vegetables and I am familiar with many of the hawkers there. Some of them even asked me for advice regarding their children's education. I am glad one of the girls will be furthering her studies in a Masters of Economics!! I am so proud of her and her very hardworking mother.
Another lady I love very much is the one I buy small combs and little things from. She came from Sungei Merah in Sibu and she has two daughters who graduated from Theological Colleges!!
But one very special reason for me to visit the tamu is to practise my Iban and my Bahasa Malaysia.
And here's one of the new ideas I get by speaking Iban......I often find that when you speak in a local dialect the hawkers become very very helpful and even sisterly..What a wonderful and kind lady she is...and I am thankful to her for teaching me about this particular aji no moto leaf.
|One leaf like this is enough to make your soup unbelieveable tasty.|
