Ayu, I'll give the good old assam jawa potion a try. Thanks again.

I'm glad. :o) Really. It's assam jawa if I'm not mistaken, but yeah...the kind we use for cooking. You can add water to the paste, but just make sure it's warm. Soothes the throat. :o) Hope it works.

Ayu, I appreciate your explanation. The sting was gone right after I uttered out my feelings. I am taking all your points in constructively. I'd do the best that I can, research wise. It was honestly meant to be a discussion. It wasn't much of a review. I'd mention the correction online next time I podcast. My next show is already ready to post, I'll mention that next time I do a show. Ayu, it is all behind me now. I wasn't sure if you're going to find the post, I'm glad you did. I know you are not a bad person, I know I am not one either. It was really my reaction to how I feel, not really what you said. I admitted to the errors. I really was a small matter. I've not tried tamarind juice. I think I might have some tamarind in the fridge. Are you talking about asam? Does it have to be in a juice form or can I add water and soak the dried tamarind paste that's used in cooking? I'm glad we get to cross our paths. Regardless of the circumstance. Your input and feedback is appreciated.

Hi, John. I'm glad you've decided to not take it personally. I also honestly apologise (for the second time. The first was right after I said it. I don't really make it a habit of calling people stupid) if you're still stinging from the prick. Let me just say this. I stand by my comment, that it was silly. It wasn't just the 'tua' comment, it was the fact that a lot of the things said were misleading. Such as saying that Gunung Ledang, or Mount Ophir, is in Malacca when it is in fact in Johor. Like you said, we're in America. Wouldn't American work ethics dictate that you do a little bit of research before actually discussing something you've no knowledge of? A little google search would have turned up many websites explaining the different versions of Puteri Gunung Ledang (PGL), such as this one: You googled Tiara Jacqueline, and provided an article from the NST on Monday Morning Glory, doesn't PGL deserve the same sort of effort? John, I mean it when I say that what I said was not aimed at you as a person, I did not mean it to be personal. You admitted yourself that you were broadcasting that podcast to a lot of ppl, Americans included, who have some, to no knowledge whatsoever of our culture. I would think then, that you have a responsibility to get it right. Or at least as accurate as you can make it out to be. Granted, it is just a podcast (and yes I know, not newsweek), but then you see, mine is just a blog. Now John, I'm not a bad person. And I'm sure you aren't one, either. Let's put this all behind us hurt feelings and all, and I'd like to make friends. If that's ok with you. ps I hope your voice gets better soon. Tried tamarind juice yet? It really does work.
