Passiflora foetida is a creeping vine that propagates wildly through seed dispersal.
The vine grows well in the jungle and plains and lives four to five years.
The flowers, leaves, and stems can be used as herbs and it has a sweet and sour fruit.
my father planted these flowers and Two weeks later then these beautiful flower are bloomed. ^_^
In my village we use locally grown turmeric in cooking as well as a natural cotton dye. my nieces and nephew are helping out today by cleaning the freshly harvested turmeric.
The tradition of tying the wrists is a long-standing ritual and is held every year for the Karen tribe's belief from the past that everything has its own spirit. Tying the wrists represents bringing the spirit of the family back to the owner, so parents have tied their childrens' wrists to bring blessings and encouragement to the children and reinforce the tradition of tying the wrists as a custom into the future. To love family, know gratitude and respect parents.
The elders preserve cultural traditions by a ceremony like this…
It starts with the parents bringing in baskets of things such as clothes, bags, turbans, liquor, boiled rice and two chickens, which were a male hen and a female hen. They go to the doorway of the house, then the father knocks on the head of the stairs and prays for the holy things.
When the cooking is done, the food is placed on the khantoke (small eating table). The food on the khantoke consists of rice, chicken curry, Khao Bae, rice porridge, boiled glutinous rice and 1 cup of liquor, and cotton thread that is approximately 13-15 inches long (length equal to the number of members of the family).
The parents perform the ceremony by bringing wooden sticks to knock on the khantoke. They call the spirit of children to come back together with the family, then the parents begin to tie the wrists to the children.
Everyone summons the spirit of that offspring to reunite with the owner, then the parents raise a glass of wine in prayer. May the holy things protect and keep your children safe from evil, and bless good things to the family including easy livelihood, growing good crops.
After which, the whole family will share the glass of wine and have the meal on the khantoke together, to complete the ceremony.
Khao pook is made by pounding sticky rice to a homogeneous consistency. Sprinkling sesame in the khao pook makes it smell good and prevents it from sticking to the mortar and pestle.
The khao pook is used in ceremonial cooking. This includes Rink Kwan (soul calling) ritual and the arm tying tradition of the Karen tribe.
