因為我小時候啃甘蔗!

15 04 2010

Was having lunch with a friend a couple of weeks back. Haven’t seen her in quite a while and was catching up. Our conversation slowly turned to how I am slowly cutting back on smoking. And suddenly she asked “你有抽煙,為什麼牙齒還那麼白?”

Eh….I really don’t know. So just stupidly said “我有刷牙啊!”

“有抽煙的, 每個人也都刷牙呀 !不見得他們的牙齒還可以那麼白!”

Well, my teeth are not that white, but still passable! haha.

Didn’t think about this much until was having lunch at Bedok Hawker Center on the way to Victoria School to teach a documentary workshop. It was one of those days that the sky is really BLUE, clouds are thin and high up in the stratosphere. You know it’s going to be a HOT day. The drinks store Auntie came over and ask “要不要喝水?”

I look at her store and saw the Sugercane stack beside the crunching machine; what is better on a hot day than a Sugercane juice drink? So I ordered one.

At the same time, I can’t help but remember the days when I was kid, on a hot day like this, what is better than to crunch some Sugercane to quench the thirst and have a brief respite from the heat? You know, with the skin chipped away and chilled, the white hard sap of the Sugercane is so good for crunching! I can still recall holding a few sticks, crunching to get the sweet juice, and running around with my neighbourhood friends. That must have strengthen my teeth and kept it white until now! I don’t see that nowadays, maybe some parents think that it is not hygienic to do that. But look at what strong and white teeth I have!

Now I know the answer “因為我小時候啃甘蔗!”

Do you know that some species of Sugercane blooms and flowers as well? The flowers look like La Lang……
