This blog is about black and white photography. Black and white photography has always been my passion. I believe that a black and white image has more impact than a colour image.

Onions

Onions from my little garden. July 2008
Onions (Allium cepa) are my permanent little garden plant. The reason is simple; they are easy to grow and make my cooking tastier. As my daughter Maisarah said, “I couldn’t imagine that some people actually hate onions. They taste good!”My superstitious neighbor (they are from Penang) used to hang onions and dried chilies on his front gate to ward off bad spirits. Well, I don’t know about evil spirits, but regular use of onions (and stay away from cigarette smoke) will definitely keep you healthy. Onions are used for diuretic, healing wounds, and clearing throat infections. No, I didn’t eat onions for those purposes, they taste good especially in jemput-jemput (Malaysian balls).
