Simpoh Air Leaf aka CB Leaf

Newer Older

This leaf is also known locally as the CB Leaf. 'CB' is the acronym for the local (and rather vulgar) term for 'vagina'. I guess you can see where it gets its name from! For some strange reason, the new leaves appear from the axil of the old ones. In days before disposable ware, the leaves were also used to wrap rojak (a local salad). It is also used to wrap tempeh (Malay fermented soyabean cakes).

    Oh lord. Not only a great photo, but I'm in India on business and you just made me very hungry for tempeh :-P

    The leaves grow like a phoenix, discarding the older body. Metaphoritastic.
