According to the story, there lived a couple of long time ago. The man was a fisherman who went missing in a fishing trip and had left behind his own pregnant housewife named Supirak. She gave birth to Si Ragam, a boy who grew up as a responsible and also hardworking man who really cared about his mother. He had built a small hut for both on the seaside Torong Puteh. To the mother that is Supirak, Ragam means everything to her. She really loves her only son.

One fine day, a ship docked at Torong Puteh to be resupplied. Being ambitious, Si Ragam had asked for his mother’s permission to work on-board for better prospects. He also promised Supirak that he would return home one day. Before he left, his mother took a strand of his hair as a keepsake that he will come back home to his beloved mother.

Due to his diligence and intelligence, Si Ragam became the captain of the ship. A few years later, his ship landed on an island called Pulau Intan. He met the king in Istana Bahkiah with his merchant boss. During the visit, Si Ragam fell in love with the princess, Dayang Dundunai, and married her months later. One day Si Ragam was on a voyage with his wife and parked his ship at Torong Puteh. The villagers were so excited when they recognized Si Ragam. They held a big party to welcome him. Supirak was so happy when everyone told her that her beloved son was back.

She boarded the ship to meet her son. Unfortunately, seeing Supirak in ragged clothes, Si Ragam was too ashamed of acknowledging her as his mother in front of his royal wife, and he disowned Supirak and chased her out of the ship. Devastated and disheartened, Supirak rowed back to the shore. She was then mocked by the villagers. In deep resentment, Supirak took out Si Ragam’s hair and cursed her son. Suddenly, a heavy storm came to rock the ship. Si Ragam regretted his wrongdoing and cried aloud begging for forgiveness. It was too late too little. The ship and its occupants turned into stone.

(Video) Are All Oranges The Same? Here’s How To Differentiate Them!

Published

on

If all this while you thought all oranges are the same, then you’re probably wrong! They may look the same, have the same colour and texture or maybe taste the same but no way they are the same.

There are so many names for small, round orange citrus fruits: tangerines, clementines, mandarins, satsumas, not to mention “cuties” and “sweeties.” But how do you know which is which, what the differences are, and how can you tell them apart? We know them as oranges but there are different types of them. And here’s a breakdown to make you see clearer.

Mandarin is the collective name for all easy-peeler type citrus fruit, which are assumed to have originated in north-east India or south-west China, despite the name being used on retail packaging. These kinds have a lot in common, such as a small to medium-sized fruit, a rind that peels away easily, sweetness, a distinct flavour, and popularity!

The Satsuma is a distinct and easily identifiable type of mandarin that is particularly popular in the United Kingdom. It is thought to have originated in Japan in three or four variants, including Okitsu and Mihowase. The rind is easy to peel off, the fruit is delicate, and the flavour is light with a wonderful tang and a hint of sweetness in the background. They’re also quite juicy and have soft segments, which adds to their appeal. Satsumas are only available throughout the season because they do not store well, and there are just a few late-season types. As a result, between January/February and August/September, there are availability gaps.

Clementine is a sort of mandarin that includes several different Common Mandarin variations as well as a few Tangors and Tangelos, therefore it is a type of mandarin rather than a unique variety. Most common easy-peeler types have been referred to as clementines at some point, which is understandable given their likeness in the eyes of customers and the fact that their variations are usually minor until the late kinds hit the market. Except for a brief period in May/June when the Ortanique is the only available mandarin other than Satsumas, there are always certain types of clementines on sale. It would be inaccurate to compare an Ortanique to a clementine because it is far more difficult to peel.

Tangerine is a common term in North America for a variety of later kinds with deep colour and thin, rather tight rinds, such as Honey Tangerine. In the United Kingdom, the word is used more liberally, however it is mainly used to lesser-known clementines and hybrid kinds.

So now you know all about oranges! Despite the difference, they still give that citrusy flavour that is loved by many!
