Kapit Bloggers


When i first create Discomfort Zone about 18 months ago, i do notice that Kapit do have bloggers, but only a handful are really active. At that time, there were about 40 bloggers who are 'always there' when you clicked on "kapit".

Over the months the numbers keep on increasing, some come and go, but others stay and today the numbers stood at 200 plus.

I do notice that the first page of kapit profiles is filled with colourfull characters and personalities. They blogged about wide range of topics.

Why don't we Kapit Bloggers form a community...........1Kapit?

Malaysia braces for possible flu outbreak


Malaysia is bracing itself for a possible outbreak of influenza A (H1N1) following the discovery of its second confirmed case.

Health deputy director-general Datuk Dr Ramlee Rahmat assured the people that government hospitals and clinics, as well as private hospitals were prepared to handle out breaks of influenza A.

The latest case involves a female friend of the 21-year-old male student who was quarantined at Sungai Buloh Hospital on Friday after it was confirmed that he had the virus.

The two were on Malaysia Airlines flight MH091 from Newark, New Jersey, United States, which arrived at Kuala Lumpur International Airport on Wednesday.

Dr Ramlee said all passengers who were on the same flight were duty bound to report to the health authorities.

“The state health departments have been directed to track them down,” said Dr Ramlee yesterday.

In the worst-case scenario, Dr Ramlee said action could be taken against them under the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases Act 1988.

Of the 192 passengers and 15 crew members on board the flight, 119 (81 Malaysians and 38 foreigners) are still in the country.

How isolated Kapit will be?

Malaysia confirms first Influenza A(H1N1) case


Malaysia has reported its first influenza A(H1N1) case involving a student who returned from the United States two days ago.

This was confirmed by Health Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai today.

"The student is now quarantined at the Sungai Buloh Hospital," he told Bernama from London.

"The student returned to Malaysia on May 13 and the next day, he sought treatment when he felt unwell. The test confirmed that he has the H1N1 virus."

Liow, enroute to Geneva, Switzerland to attend the World Health Organisation (WHO) General Assembly, was on transit in London.
He said health personnel were in the midst of tracking down all passengers on the flight and those who had come into contact with the student since his return.

"This is urgent and all have to work together to prevent the spread of the disease in this country. We have initiated various preventive measures and the health department is working hard on the ground," he said.

Liow also advised the public to be on high alert and immediately seek treatment if they feel unwell.

No indiscriminate open burning, warns NREB


Natural Resources and Environment Board (NREB) yesterday identified a number of illegal open burning activities in Sibu.

NREB Controller of Environmental Quality Dr Penguang Manggil in stating this said the board viewed the matter seriously and was taking steps to curb the problem.

He warned industries as well as individuals not to re-sort to indiscriminate open burning, adding that during the dry spell bushes and forests caught fire easily.

Penguang made the remarks when contacted in Kuching yesterday.

According to him, the NREB is monitoring the hot spots through satellite and GPS to ensure the culprits could be identified and action taken against them.

He said the board had restricted the number of permits issued to the industrial sector in the state for open burning.

If the current dry spell kept on, he said, NREB would continue to reduce the number of permits issued as part of the efforts to see the haze situation is under control.

He warned that offenders could be slapped with a maximum compound of RM30,000 under the NREB Ordinance 1993.

He said if brought to court they were liable to a fine of RM30,000 or three years in jail or both.

Meanwhile, he said NREB enforcement officers in all divisions are monitoring the hot spot areas to ensure all parties adhered to the set conditions on open burning activities.

“I’ve instructed all my officers to be on the alert for open burning activities, especially those involving the plantation sector to avoid occurrence of haze,” he added.

Megophrys nasuta


The Long-nosed Horned Frog (Megophrys nasuta) or the Malayan Horned Frog is a species of frog restricted to the rainforest areas of southern Thailand and Peninsular Malaysia to Singapore, Sumatra and Borneo.

Physical description

This species is a large frog ranging from 100-120 mm in length. They are light to dark brown on the dorsal surface with varying patterns and camouflage very well with the forest floor. The throat is black-dark brown and diffuses into cream-yellow halfway along the ventral surface. The upper eyelids and snout are drawn out into long triangular projections, forming what looks like "horns", giving them their common name. There are two pairs of dorsolateral skin folds running down this species back. One pair starts behind the eye and ends near the groin, the other pair starts at corner of the eye and ends roughly halfway between the armpit and groin. The dorsum has randomly scattered, enlarged tubercles. Arms and legs are barred with skin folds and are mottled cream and different shades of brown. The toes are slightly webbed and the fingers are free from webbing. The tympanum is indistinct and the iris is golden brown.

Ecology and behaviour

This species lives in permanently damp and cool lowland and submontane rainforests among leaf litter. The call is a loud, resonating, metallic "honk" or "henk". Breeding takes place in streams, female frogs attach the eggs to the underside of partially or full submerged rocks or logs. The capsules are large and few in number. This species may lie still on the forest floor waiting for an unsuspecting prey item to pass by, they then lash out and engulf the prey. They typically feed on spiders, small rodents, lizards and other frogs.

Means Justify The End


Red Crescent Malaysia has started seeking donations from the Public. This is a yearly event and has been carried out for many years. For any donor that donates, a small sticker bearing the red crescent logo will be handed to them as a sign of appreciation......i guess.

Those involving in this drive are usually School Children representing the various schools around Sibu town. These school children are seen in groups, with their Red Crescent T Shirts.

These School Children are very motivated in collecting donations. Is there some sort of competition among them? As parents, how do you feel that when your children are seen in front of of gambling outlets asking for donation?

Is the end really important that whatever mean is justified?

Now and Then


This hospital museum is in memory of philanthropist Lau King Howe who donated a piece of land for the first Government hospital in Sibu. The hospital is no more there but Lau's name continues to be an inspiration to the people."

This is an early photo of the Lau King Howe Hospital of Sibu. Later it expanded to become a bigger hospital. But in the 80's the Sibu General Hospital was built in Oya Road and this hospital which saved many lives slowly disappeared into oblivion and disuse. Only a small part of the building is left to become a mini museum. A huge piece of the original land has been used up for urban development of Sibu.

Replacement


Kabong once upon a time was a prime supplier of ripe coconut for the Sibu and Sarikei market. The supply was steady and could meet the demand and no problem of shortage. But that was many years ago. Now the scenario has changed dramatically. Many time, ripe coconut was scarce and the price of Santan (coconut milk) rose up.

What caused the problem? On my trip to Kabong recently that i found out that, the coconut trees had grown old and less productive. Besides, the land for coconut has been planted with palm oil instead of replanted with coconuts.


Besides coconut, Kabong is also producing Mempelam (a type of Mango) which commands a good market price.....a kilo of young fruit could fetch a price of RM 6.00 t0 RM 8.00. Now Mempelam trees are still flowering (on the right side of the pic).

The coconut tree on the left is at the prime age and bearing a lot of fruit. This was the common sight many years ago. In the fore ground you could see green vegetation. This is not grass but paddy field. Harvesting has just been completed. Soon they will be having Pesta Beras Wangi (Fragrance Rice Festival). Is Kabong also producing Fragrance Rice?

Suman Pais from Kabong


Suman Pais is usually made by the Malays of the Coastal Regions of former Sri Aman Division. Kabong is one of such village; a traditional Malay Fishing Village in the Betong Division.

Suman Pais is cooked over a slow burning fire, usually by means of firewood. Bakau is the more preferred wood.


Suman Pais is basically seafood mixed with sago flour and wrapped in Nipah leaf and cooked over a slow burning fire. Sounds so easy but actually not so.......

Sago flour or Lemantak as it called locally has to be mixed in the right potions of water, salt and seafood. The choice of seafood will be something like fish,cuttle fish,prawn and even liver of sting ray..........its your choice.

Suman Pais is best eaten when hot. Maybe you should know that Lemantak is very starchy and thus gets harden or tough when cold.

Blast from The Past

Days when you were young and carefree are part and parcel of the yester years that are etched deep in your mind. An old black and white pic like this sure worth a nostalgic thought, as your memories stroll along the lane of past events.

As your eyes scan through the faces, you lost in thoughts ,between the past and present. How you wished that you could rewind time and be there once again to share those moments. But that is impossible and you wonders......where are they now?

Periophthalmodon schlosseri


Mudskippers dominate the mudflats and move about openly.
At high tide, they may remain at the water surface, near their burrows, resting on roots, rocks or other surfaces. At low tide, they forage actively on the mudflat or perch at the entrance of their burrows.

Giant Mudskippers are carnivorous, aggressively hunting mainly arthropods (e.g., insects) and crustacea. These are caught on the mud, or while the fish is swimming in the water. They may even eat smaller mudskippers.

Mudskippers are found along the intertidal zone, living happily on the margin of land and sea. They have special adaptations to help them dominate a habitat which few other animals can exploit: soft mud with fluctuating water quantities and qualities.
