The peat swamps of Sibu yield a good , healthy, crop called Kang Soon, or Cane Bamboo. The roots of this small bamboo are boiled to make a drink which can cure nose bleeding.
When we were kids, my maternal grandmother and aunts in Nang Chong used to boil this whenever we kids had nose bleeding.
And I have been wondering for many years why we suffered more from nose bleeding in those days. These days we hardly hear of people suffering from nose bleeding.
Only one of my children suffered from nose bleeding, but the problem stopped after a while.
Each of these bundles cost RM 2.00 in Sibu. This photo is taken in the Sibu Central Market.
