MELAKA (Jan 3, 2013): The Melaka Government wants to collect tens of thousands of Bahasa Melayu manuscripts in Europe as sources of reference for research and development of the language through the International Malay Letters Centre of Excellence which was set up, here, today.

Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam said, a visit would be made to the Leiden University, the premier Bahasa Melayu centre in the world and the oldest university in Holland, to seek its cooperation, on the matter.

“The maiden effort to gather copies of the manuscripts and other collections is to boost Bahasa Melayu to an era of excellence as found during the Melaka Sultanate,” he said after the launching of the centre in Air Keroh, here, today.

Also present were Melaka State Secretary Datuk Wira Omar Kaseh, Dewan Bahasa dan Pustaka (DBP) Board of Governor chairman Prof Datuk Dr Md Salleh Yaapar and DBP director-general DBP Dr Awang Sariyan.

According to Mohd Ali, the centre which was operating on the 10th floor of the Melaka Foundation Building, and headed by a director, was also proposed as the organiser of seminars and workshops for Bahasa Melayu.

Other than Leiden, Mohd Ali said, the Melaka Government would also work with other European nations such as England and Portugal to copy the Bahasa Melayu transcripts and documents in their collections.

Meanwhile, Md Salleh, who was visiting professor at Leiden University from 2003 to 2006, said the university had almost 100,000 Bahasa Melayu manuscripts since the Dutch invaded the Malay Archipelago in the 17th century.

He said, the effort of the state government in setting up the centre of excellence, would give a positive impact in the expansion of Bahasa Melayu, and economic returns in the long run. – Bernama

There are many times in my life where we wished we was a braver person. we wish we was dauntless adequate to lay by a fear film though carrying to use my hands as a defense during certain tools of a movie. we also wish that we am not simply daunted by a entrance of a restaurant. You know how a conditions goes – we travel past an engaging looking restaurant, we take a look inside and unexpected a hundred and one thoughts inundate your mind. Is a food nice? Is it another overcharged grill where portions are approach too tiny and bland? Will we bewail this decision? These are though some of a many thoughts that comes to my mind.

If left to my possess devices, there would be a high possibility that we might not have visited Yashiki Yakitori Bar. But we am blissful that we stepped into a outlet, for we would have really missed out a many good dishes that it has to offer if we had not left in. It was partial of a dining knowledge by Moola, a initial ever homegrown Cash-Back Lifestyle programme by ICT Utopia. During my visit, we attempted a Yee Sang promotion. With a Chinese New Year usually around a corner, Yashiki Yakitori Bar is now charity 5 opposite forms of Yee Sang for a customers. From vegetarians to sashimi lovers, there is really a leader for everyone. My friends and we opted for a Salmon Sashimi Yee Sang with inexhaustible slices of uninformed salmon. we contingency say, this yee sang is really most some-more opposite than a ones that we have tasted before. The orange oil together with a orange leaves and plum salsa used to toss with a proposal vegetables gives it a sour and lovely ambience that complements a salmon really well. Absolutely a contingency try for those who are dining during a restaurant.

The aloft we toss, a some-more moneyed it is for you! So go on and toss it as high as we can!

Yashiki Yakitori Bar also serves a preference of Japanese consequence and internal drink to a customers. And what goes good with a mop of drink than a portion of baby pig ribs? Although a opening incorporated baby pig ribs as partial of a menu earlier, it is now a promotional object for singular time only. we strongly suggest a Baby Ribs Teriyaki to anyone who loves their pig ribs.

A ambience of Szechuan with Moola

January 29, 2013 during 5:00 pm

How many times have we walked past a emporium or a grill though realising what is offering in there? we know we do. In a promptness to strech a end on time, these shops have been reduced to becloud images that incline into a background. One such grill was Zhi Wei Yuan, located along Jalan Imbi, Kuala Lumpur.

Zhi Wei Yuan specialises in Szechuan cuisine, and as Chinese cuisines are a vast poser to me, we did not have any preconceived expectations before to dining during this outlet. we was there with a integrate of friends, including Emily Tang of Sunrise Emily blog and Evelyn Ang of Missyblurkit.com, pleasantness of Moola, a initial ever homegrown Cash-Back Lifestyle programme by ICT Utopia. The girls had a lot to contend about their knowledge here, so greatfully remember to see how it went for both of them!

Read: Emily’s initial confront of a Szechuan kind
Read: Evelyn loves it SPICY… for food of course

It turns out that Szechuan food is famous for a sharp dishes and a inexhaustible use of a Szechuan peppercorns in cooking. These peppercorns are famous to possess a singular aroma and essence that is unequivocally most distinct a some-more obvious counterparts, a black and white pepper. Regulars congregation who know accurately what they wish can have their dishes customised according to their requests. Freshness is their categorical importance when it comes to selecting their mixture to safeguard peculiarity dishes. Most of their elementary mixture used in credentials of their dishes are brought in from China.

Our dishes for a dusk looked flattering common, though let me tell you, this lot packs a punch ambience wise! The manager offering us a unequivocally useful tip to quarrel off a feverishness from a peppercorns – that is to splash Wong Lo Kat (a form of Chinese honeyed herbal drink) instead of a common cold H2O to element a meal. Our cooking started off with prawns boiled in sharp sauce. The prawns were fresh, and it a initial of many good tasting dishes that done a cooking great.

Surprisingly, Wong Lo Kat unequivocally does assistance cold down a spiciness of a Szechuan pepper!

To me, food is like songs and movies; we might confront a good many of them via your life, though usually a few will indeed leave a durability impression. For me, a Sichuan Style Braised Fish Fillet with Beancurd was one such dish. we never knew that a multiple of elementary mixture like fish fillet, soothing beancurd and pickled recorded unfeeling could turn something so delicious. The ambience of a soup is clever adequate that it gives a whole plate a flavour, though not so clever that it overpowers a beancurd and fish fillet.

Sichuan Style Fried Prawn with Spicy Sauce – juicy down to a unequivocally final bite!

Sichuan Style Braised Fish Fillet with Beancurd – Though it might demeanour simple, one ambience of this plate and we will tumble in adore with it

We were also treated to a portion of Fried Spareribs in Sweet Sour Sauce and Chongqing Stir Fried Chicken with Dried Chilli. Unlike some restaurants where a colour of a salsa LOOKS juicy though in fact lacks in taste, this plate is only ideal – not too sweet, only adequate spirit of sourness to make it proposal and tantalizing with each bite! Definitely a contingency try for lovers of pig gangling ribs. For frog lovers, demeanour out for a Dry Braised Spicy Edible Frog. Though it was somewhat tainted to a taste, a frog beef was uninformed and tender, creation this plate a good accompaniment with rice.

The cook also done us a few other non-spicy dishes like a Sauteed Hand Ripped Cabbage, Xinjiang Boiled Lamb Cutlets, Sauteed Shredded Potato with Salted Egg Yolk. Again, do not be fooled by these elementary looking dishes. The cabbage tastes positively scrumptious! The unfeeling is frail and juicy with a slight benevolence and a spirit of vinegar combined to it, nonetheless there isn’t any of a tender unfeeling ambience that is benefaction as a outcome of undercooking. If we were to ask a manager as to how a lamb is prepared, you’d be astounded with a answer. There isn’t any gamey ambience and it doesn’t feel like we are nipping rubber with each bite.

Sauteed Hand Ripped Cabbage – a cabbage tastes frail with a slight benevolence to it. One of a many favourites for a night

Xinjiang Boiled Lamb Cutlets – who knew that lamb could ambience this smashing baked this way

Sauteed Shredded Potato with Salted Egg Yolk – looks like noodles right? It’s indeed shredded potato coated with pickled egg yolk. Another favourite for a night

By now, anyone would already be so full that it would seem unfit to take another bite. Maybe it was a stormy weather, or it could be a association that we had, we were really adult for one some-more plate – a famous Sichuan Hot Pot. We chose a Spicy Fish Hot Pot. This object comes with 3 side dishes of your choice, 6 condiments and lots of fish beef underneath that effervescent soup. The condiments, that are tender garlic, open onions, sesame seed oil, peppercorn oil, chopped red and cilantro, play a partial in enhancing your eating experience.

The side dishes and condiments that comes together with a sequence of prohibited pot

Glutinous Rice Balls in Sweet Rice Wine Soup – a good dessert to turn adult a night

Unlike a required prohibited pot where we splash vast quantities of a soup, a soup for this prohibited pot can be a tad too sharp and greasy for anyone. That is because one of a condiments given with each plate is sesame seed oil. When churned with a other condiments of your choice, it will forestall a chairman from pang from heartburn. A unequivocally useful tip indeed!

It was tighten to 11pm by a time a cooking ended. Everyone went behind with a vast grin on their faces and a somewhat bigger waistline! Though eating during Zhi Wei Yuan can be somewhat expensive, it was value each dollar. It might seem that we have managed to ambience utterly a series of dishes today, though that is only a tip of a iceberg. we will really make Zhi Wei Yuan a stop in my stability tour of exploring Szechuan cuisine.
