Chinese new year is drawing near. When buy Chinese oranges please beware of the worms inside. These worms are very similar to the texture of the orange and therefore can only be observe if you look carefully (long sighted person may not notice).
The Chinese government had in fact made effort to destroy hundreds of tons of these oranges and compensate the farmers for these. But however some culprit may still sell it illegally. That's why we need to be careful.
Whether the worms is harmful to the human body or not is still questionable. But generally if few numbers are consumed it should not make any harm according to doctors. It is advisable to be careful about it."
There will be an exhibition done by Sabah State Library for the opening ceremony of Bandar Sri Indah in Tawau on the 8th of March, 2011. There would be several prints of Tawau old photos on display and the Kee Family book by Kee Faridah as well. Please stop by and visit if you have the time :)

Be careful when buying oranges for Chinese New Year
I received this in my mailbox a few weeks ago, no idea if it's the truth or just another false rumor spread by irresponsible people. I have no knowledge as to the origin of this mail or how old it is. However just pick your oranges carefully, and happy CNY ;)
