No to Chinese vegetables and fruits – Malaysiakini

We have to stop buying Chinese imports because according to Malaysiakini,

Liow said vegetables could have been contaminated by melamine through fertilizers and pesticides.

and that makes me wonder…..does our country has stringent tests on those imports? So often, I have heard of other countries banning certain foods before our country pick up the news. The tainted vegetables information was sourced from Korea. And long ago, Singapore already banned Ma Ling pork luncheon meat. Anyway…I don’t often buy Chinese vegetables if I can help it eventhough it is much cheaper than Australian. You see, I don’t eat that much vegetables, so if I buy Australian or even Cameron Highlands vege, the differences in price is minimal. I have always been suspicious why their freaking vegetable remains fresh in the fridge for weeks after weeks and after weeks.


Anyway….I found a funny site which used vegetables to make funny faces. So, I copycat one of them using leek. Leek from Cameron Highlands.


All using natural ingredients. Using three beans as the eyes and nose and the red lips using food colouring.

Cute leh…


The leek has been made into Jamie Oliver lamb shanks. Burps..

Another reminder, stay away from Chinese imports. Including China dolls, ok? Bad for your health, says Malaysiakini.

Malaysia has placed a ban on all Chinese dairy products, including candies, chocolates and all food containing milk.

  1. Melamine is an ingredient to make fertilizer. You would be surprised that not only melamine but other dangerous chemicals are used to make fertilizers.

  2. Well, I think that’s just the way the world is right now. Everybody’s out to make a fast buck. It doesn’t matter if it hurts someone else down the line so long as it’s not them.

    It’s prevalent, from the gambling in Wall Street over the sub-prime mortgage loans and credit default swaps in the US to tainted foodstuff and milk in China.

    Welcome to the 21st century!

  3. My main worry is that this is just the tip of the iceberg, who knows what other harmful chemicals are ‘hiding’ in the food we eat everyday!

  4. Hmmmm…. I remember my pre-University Chemistry teacher said that everything we eat is poisonous… to a certain degree.

    Damn it! I knew she was right! 😆
