Chap Goh Mei

I suppose to go to Kei Lok Si to snap some good pictures, then to Esplanade to snap some pictures of people throwing oranges. Too bad, I haven’t eaten a real meal and way too exhausted to go out again even though I’m not the one who drives.

So, instead of staying home and feel regret that I’d miss a lot of pictures and great moment, I plan to make something refreshing.

On my way back from paying RM4k to my foreman (major repair on my 10 year-old car), surveyed price for washing machine and oven and bought groceries at Sunshine, I remembered that I still have some lokam (mandarin orange) in the fridge. It’s getting very ripe now. Then, I remember that I’ve read about Lokam Juice here.

I dropped by at the grocery shop at the roadside and bought some lime and soda.

As soon as I reached home, I started peeling some lokam and cut the lime. 6 lokams with 3 limes. Then, I added some soda.


The result: It’s so bitter! (maybe because people squash it, but I use the juice maker – together with the seed)

Any good advise?

Hope you have a wonderful Chap Goh Mei :)

    Haha..I echo Tekkaus' comment. Just eat the mandarin orange! :)

  8. mei teng - hehe i got a lot of them in the fridge. i thought by making juice i can make variety lokam in solid form and liquid. but...

    er, maybe i should try squashing then?

  9. I'm gonna echo both Tekkaus and Mei Teng's comments. Juz eat the mandarin oranges!! Haha!

    But if you must make juice, take out all the seeds first, then juice it - then won't be bitter : )

  11. foong - what about the white texture on the orange itself? i still think i must squash it rather than blend.
