Green tea doesn’t just sing to the soul, either— its health benefits are noteworthy as well. Due in part to minimal processing during production, greenteas offer the most antioxidant polyphenols of all teas. Catechin epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), abundantly found in the green tea leaf, is considered to be the catalyst for the tea’s antioxidant and anticancer effects. As we know, antioxidants naturally stabilize the pro-oxidative free radicals in our systems before they attack our bodies’ cells.  When we are excessively exposed to pollutants, alcohol, and medications, for example,  antioxidants found in nutrients like Vitamin E and C can help to balance our oxidative metabolism.

Thus, with a cup full of antioxidants, green tea drinkers reduce their risk for a wide range of diseases and reap the benefits of a balanced system. Aside from from helping to prevent cancers, cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, hypertension, and depression (to name a few), green tea is also linked to clearer, smoother skin and weight loss. Not too shabby for hot water and some tea leaves!

A few tips for consumption:

- When possible, use loose leaf tea instead of tea bags for higher quality.
- Let your tea leaves steep for three to five minutes before straining them out.
- If you’re pouring tea for guests too, try “cycle pouring”– the first cup poured is weaker than the last, so rotating pours to each cup will equally distribute the tea strength.
- Drink your green tea without sugar or milk. The raw robust taste may take some getting used to, but it is acquired (and delicious)!
- Citrus juices complement green tea’s antioxidants and make them easier for your body to absorb. A slice of lemon is a great additive.
As with anything, moderation is key. Green tea is naturally and deceptively caffeinated; for those who are sensitive to caffeine, one cup should be enough.

Happy sipping.

Food For Thought

My favorite Lian Thong Hainan Restaurant at Taiping,
my wife prepared herself Yunnan Greentea Drinks

"You have become a Malay." My mom is always telling me the same thing.
"What.. Why? Tell me what make you say like that."

"After you embraced that religion, what you eat is just KFC, Mamak stalls, Malay and Siam Restaurant. Why don't you go to Chinese restaurant anymore?"

So I brought my parent to New Hollywood restaurant at Canning Garden, Ipoh one day. There's a lot of Chinese stalls are selling Chinese Foods like Char Kuey Teow, 油炸鬼, wantan mee, chee cheong fun... Most importantly that's no forbidden meat inside. My mom just tells me that this food is not "Chinese" enough.

::Ramadan Reflections::Day 17: 马来西亚华裔穆斯林系列 - Malaysia Chinese Muslim In A Nutshell


Mimbar, Chinese Muslim Mosque, Ipoh.
敏拜尔,敏拜楼(指清真寺殿内的宣教台,形如楼梯)

This is articles about Malaysia Chinese Muslim published by Nan Yang Newspaper (南洋商报) at 2010 year. A bittersweet and complicated of our Reverted Muslim story. Although there is slightly incorrect statement about Islam and Muslim, the rest about social and prejudice against Reverted Muslim is defined precisely.

Still, it's very interesting for Chinese readers to have a glance about who is Chinese Muslim in Malaysia.

以下的文章是由南洋商报于 2010 年所刊登相关马来西亚华裔穆斯林系列。 基于华裔穆斯林一直处于灰色地带,鲜少人真正了解华裔归信穆斯林的真正状况与外界的压力。然而这并不代表身为穆斯林的华裔就得一直低着头过活,我们仍然拥有自身的使命去让外界理解何以我们选择了伊斯兰,甚至可以向外界讲解有关“回教”一词并不恰当于形容 Islam 这一个阿拉伯文字。

“回教”顾名思义就是回回族的宗教,而 Islam 的真正涵义有两个:顺从和平安。伊斯兰本身提倡‘顺从真主’。所以 Muslim 这一个阿拉伯字的涵义就是“顺从真主的仆人”,也反驳了“回教徒”这局限了其定义为:回回种族的宗教教徒。况且马来西亚何来的中国少数民族?大部分的穆斯林都是马来同胞和印度同胞。皆因伊斯兰本身就是世界性的宗教,从没有区分肤色与富贫之别。

由于有关华裔穆斯林的中文文献相当有限,谨此分享源自南洋商报的一些文章。若要深一步探讨和了解华裔穆斯林敬请留言或者电邮: lifemualaf@gmail.com

祈愿真主赐予您平安

::Ramadan Reflections::Day 5: Hibernation



Well... I promised myself to write 30 articles for 30 days before this.
Seems like I have failed to do it. I feel sorry for the weak outcome.

There's too much commitment to deal with in reality. At least I'll be back to my blogging life after everything settled down. May everyone have a faith fulfilled Ramadan Month.
