Linopot


see, i told u i feel to blog [ every minute! ]
found this picture in my collection, and hehe i'd love to share it with u all ;)

that's my youngest bro and my dad last Christmas while we're on our way to balik kg kota marudu. This surely was my mum's idea! She needs these leaves to made a "Linopot".
As far as i know, "Linopot" is one of traditional food for Dusun People [ including me ], Linopot is name after Dusun's language which means " packing " [ dibungkus ] and known as compressed rice packed in leaves.
The nenek moyang generation believes the name came from a story ;
long2 time ago, when they buka tanah , they found this tree with all of its leaves macam kena bungkus. [ Linopot ] and they name the village after it. maka, terjadila itu nasi linopot. hehe I only knew very few of this story. [ shame on me -_- ] and if anyone of you would like to tell me more, u r welcome-welcome!! hehe
my mum always made Nasi Ayam Linopot, sometimes with Ikan Masin. Other Time, she mixed the rice with Ubi Manis, [ even taste better! ] and she made this Ubi Linopot. No other mixing, just Ubi. semua sedap!! hehe

*tudubangat*

cheers guys!!
