Millennials are hooked by the words "Apple Cider" with 4.5% alcohol content



Millennials in Malaysia understand the adverse effect consuming alcoholic drinks from their parent. Besides, prolonged campaign of "too much alcoholic drinks are bad for health" are really effective way stopping us from binge drink.



Furthermore, alcoholic drinks are for adults (normally bartender ask your age prior serving). Even though we can pretend we are adult but the heavy tax imposed by the authorities really put us off as one simple and normal alcoholic drinks are priced at more or less RM8.50 in an amount 300ml to 350ml.



Last but not least, the religion strongly against consuming alcoholic drinks. Some of us think alcoholic drinks must be really bad to the extent it goes opposed by religious teaching.



It might be true Millennials are not drinking that much now. In fact, they do not find it is good to drink what the elders have been drinking all this time.  In order to attract younger generation, the company behind alcoholic drinks are introducing the health-concerned alcoholic drinks to the market with as low as just 4.5% alcoholic content.

We can all assume our parent taught us eating more vegetables for our health. Ironically, they never really taught us the whole picture. This is not an article that cover everything more of nagging you to recognize all these fruits and vegetables are a blessing.








Okra lady finger

1. Okra / Lady Finger


In a way that it has more similarity to a fruit than vegetable. A pod that containing seed. Eating okra is equivalent eating fruit. Asian love stir fried lady finger with garlic and little bit of chili than eating it raw or boil.

Bird eye Chili



2. Bird's Eye Chili



Do you know that Bird's Eye Chili is actually a fruit ?. This is because it contains the seed more or less like a pod. Of course, some of us do not like to eat it. That is the reason why god give us tomato a rival of Chili that what I love to believe.


Can you put bird eye chili and tomato in a same dish ? It is truly sad to agree not all god's creation are meant to blend well together !

Basically it is a tuber. harvest it underneath soil. Frankly speaking, carrot is a giant stem storing all the natural nutrients under the soil. It cant be classified as fruit due to lack of seed and does not grow out of a tree.

I think some of us confuse potato and french fries in some point of our life. It actually a same thing. I do not know why it widely called as french fries instead of potato fries. It is so confusing ! Due to potato does not contain any seed so it safe to say it is a vegetable stem. We should eat more potato and treat it as a kind of vegetable.

9. Chili Pepper


This is some fantastic discovery ever in human food history. This delicious-looking fruit has three distinctive color. Green, yellow and red. Do not fool by it colors, It is the same fruit. I am laughing so hard because once believe that three of them are different fruits.

The last time Malaysian run out of fruit supply is almost impossible. The lifestyle disease pretty much outweigh Malaysia fruit consumption rate. It is believe that Malaysia has continuously import good fruits into the country in order to tackle problematic disease such as obesity, heart illnesses.

Apple and grape




1. APPLE


Most of the apple put on sale at Malaysian local store are product of import from USA. we never realize how lucky we are able to taste apple ! It receives underwhelmed response perhaps due to lack of health awareness ?


I firmly believe that the fruits are heavily subsidized by the authorities. we may not the know the actual price of one apple. In 2017, the price of an apple should be RM1 as well as the price of an orange which also a product of import either from Australia or Egypt !


There is not much price inflation in fruit market in Malaysia due to abundant supply and least demand !
