The wonder leaf..


This wonder leaf that we call Daun Lima Purut is one herb that the Malay cannot do without. For in the making of the Rendang without this leaf the Rendang would not be Rendang. Have a nice day.

Hello Pak Idrus,

Greeting to you.

Try crushing lime leaves and place them next to your pillows. It's very relaxing for a good night sleep. ;-)And your room smells fresh the next day.

Salam, Pak Idrus! Wonder why the photos you take make the most commonplace items look more interesting. It's like seeing things for the first time, from a fresh perspective.

I love daun limau purut. I cut them into strips and put them in a jam jar lid in the fridge or car as a natural air freshener.

Best regards,
