Location: Somewhere along Sabak Bernam - Kuala Selangor route
Dad: Wow! Look at those stalls. What are they selling?
Mama: (screams) Mangoes!!!! STOP!!!
Dad: (brakes immediately) What? Why? Did we hit something?
Mama: I want to buy some mangoes....
Dad: Yeah...but you don't have to scare me like that. What if I had a heart attack?
Mama: Sorry, love. You know how I loooove mangoes....
Dad: OK OK, go buy a bonnetfull. My legs need a stretch anyway. Come Angelina. Let's look at the surrounding area while your Mama picks her mangoes. Make sure you get my favourite type too.
Mama: (flutters eyelashes) Your wish is my command, master!
I followed Dad and brought along the camera, just in case. Lo and behold, what have we here?
|Could this be cat grass haven?|
|So lush and inviting....I could have a munching orgy here...|
|Up close and personal...come here to Angie you juicy juicy grass...|
|Who is this wonderful person who's been planting so generously?|
Location: A few yards from mango stall
Dad: Angelina, stop rolling your body on that patch.
Angelina: But Dad this is juicy stuff. I loooove munching on cat grass...
Dad: But that's not cat grass. Don't you know what it is?
Angelina: Huh? Not cat grass?
Dad: Yeah...these are baby rice plants and this is a nursery where they raise the seedlings before transplanting to the rice field.
Angelina: Baby rice plants? But they look like grass.
Dad: The scientific name for rice is Oryza sativa and it is from the grass family, same as bamboo and wheat.
Angelina: Oh well, you learn something new everyday. But I could swear this is cat grass. You try some, Dad.
