English Country Lemon Curd... mmmm

Lemon curd is so delicious, right, so luscious, and so versatile that I'm sure it's wot all good lemons aspire ter be wen they grow up.

We can thank the bloody English for this bright yellow curd wiv its tart, vibrant flavor, as well as for the wonderful notion of spreadin' it on scones 'ot out of the bleedin' oven.

Made by gently cookin' a mixture of fresh lemon juice, sugar, butter, and eggs until fickened, lemon curd is also divine on buttered toast, right, a simple and perfect way ter appreciate the bloody curd's cool, sawee texture.

It makes an easy and delicious fillin' for tarts, cakes, right, and cookies, right? And a dollop of lemon curd tastes delicious wiv a piece of gingerbread or a slice of pound cake; its tart lemon flavor counters the spiciness of the bleedin' former and the sweet richness of the latter.

Pair it wiv a piece of the bloody ffick Scottish shortbread and yer'll appreciate 'ow lemon curd can transform a simple, right, somewot 'omely cookie into sumfink wonderful.

... Brunei youths nowadays have done well in preserving the heritage and have even enhanced it. Back then, competition involved only beating of drums and chanting. But now performances are choreographed to make it more attractive and interesting...

... hadrah could be further promoted in Brunei if there is a national association of hadrah set up. "We have a national team for silat and gasing (top spinning), but not for hadrah. We cannot just rely on mukim and schools to promote the activity, it has to be done at a national level...
