Little Ironweed or Siew San Hu消山虎

消山虎Thanks to my Hakka friends of Miri, my knee joint pains disappeared in 1992.
I am also going to take a photo of my new Hakka sister,whom I met on Tuesday, who reaffirmed the goodness of this WEED. The Hakkas call this weed Siew San Hoo  Rid Mountain of Tiger which also sounds like Little Coral.

This looks like a life savior for me. I have a leg version of a tennis elbow.

Heard Bro Albinus had a surgery previously to remove part of his lungs. latest news, doc at KL hospital was able to find the cause. He was admitted as he cant eat well and vomitted. Doc found blockage to his intestine and was operated on wed. He is very happy to know that old students set up a fund for him.

This shows how united his students are and how much they all love him. Wishing him the best!! May God be with him and his students throughout this difficult time of recovery. God bless. I really admire him for his love for his students. I was chief examiner in his school several times ...and I would always try to be earlier than him in the hall...being able to be in the school hall before him coming with the keys was such a grand act...in the morning. I just wanted to let him know that marriage and kids did not make a difference in my life as a professional teacher. "wink".

Ensurai said...

thanks for the tip, I will check again. My reference is a Chinese herbal book published in Sibu.

Ensurai said...

The Chinese referencing is correct, may be my first photo is a bit of a mistake. I will take another better photo of the vernonia when I can find fresh flowers ...I know an emilia when I see one. thanks. I hope to correct any mistake on my part. Thanks.

Do you know hwere I can get a copy of the chinese herbal book published in Sibu???

Ensurai said...

Please go to See Hua Daily News and ask for copies of the books. Vol l and Vol Two. The author is Miss Yong Gien Fang. Or you can approach Methodist Message Office and ask for more information. Failing that look for the Chinese writers of the See Hua Daily News. I am in Miri, so I cannot help you much. I am also not sure if these books are sold in bookshops in Sarawak. Thank you on my friend's behalf for your interest.

Thanks for the info. The information alone is good enough. I can find the book now.

Ensurai said...

Thank you. You are most welcome. I have asked Miss Yong again and she said that all those who have annual subscription of See Hua Daily News received complimentary copies. Check that out too. Lots left in See Hua Office in Sibu.
