Ragbi kita perlu naturalisasi

Siapa tahu, satu hari nanti mungkin pasukan Bunga Raya juga mampu membuat kejutan sebagaimana dilakukan oleh pasukan naturalisasi UAE (ranking ke-73 dunia) yang mengalahkan Korea Selatan (ranking ke-33 dunia, ke-3 Asia) dengan mata 36 berbalas 32 di ARC 2024?

Exploring our own Renaissance

The Renaissance, a period of rebirth in arts, science, and culture from 1359 to 1600, was a time when society celebrated versatility. This era saw the emergence of polymaths—individuals who excelled in multiple fields. Leonardo da Vinci, one of the most iconic figures of the Renaissance, epitomised this ideal.

Dalgona candy 🍭 is a product of caramelization of sugar, according to Dr. Chai Lay Ching @chailayching from Institute of Biological Sciences @isb_um @unimalaya

Heating up white sugar, which is crystalized sucrose, to 160 degrees causes it to oxidize and break down. This process produces various compounds, such as caramelans, caramelens and caramelins that gives the brown color and caramel flavor to the candy.

The candy’s recipe also calls for bicarbonate soda, or sodium bicarbonate, which releases carbon dioxide gas upon reacting with other ingredients. This is the reason why dalgona candy is crunchy and easily brakes (but also enjoyable to eat!)

“We might not have dalgona candy here in Malaysia, but we have peanut candy 工花生糖 which is also made of caramelized sugar,” said Dr. Chai with delight. Contact her at lcchai@um.edu.my if you would like to talk more about food-related science.
