The story of coriander and celery

I went to Abang Long's house this weekend. On Saturday, my sister in law, Kak Reeny was making soto. She asked me to buy celery. When I was at the grocery store, I see the celery has 2 colours - yellowish and fresh green. So I separated the yellowish one at different partition in the chiller. As I placed the yellow one on the top, I see another type of celery. I was wondering why would they put the same leaf at different place. I ignored it, and purchased what already in my hand.

At home:

Kak Reeny : Wawa!!! Apa awak beli ni! Ini bukan daun sup la!!! Daun ketumbar!!! 
I : Eh? Betul la... daun sup kan macam tu. 
Kak Reeny : Cuba awak cium ni. Mana sama dengan daun sup. Lawak betul!
I : Err... (agaknya yang sebelah daun kuning aku letak tadi tu daun sup yang betul). 

By the chance, Kakak was on the way to Kak Reeny's house. I messaged her to buy the celery. When she arrived:

Kak Reeny : Girl! Ni pun daun ketumbar! Bukannya daun sup!!!
Kakak : Tak sama ke? Kat kedai tadi tengok ada yang satu kat bahagian atas macam dah layu warna kekuningan, Girl amik la yang hijau kat bahagian bawah. Ingatkan daun sup.  
I : Kedai mana ko pergi Kak? 
Kakak : Pasar Mini ****. 
I : Hahahahah~ yang asingkan tu aku la. Tadi aku pun beli kat sana lepas tu salah.

*Kak Reeny went to the refrigerator and take out something*

Kak Reeny : Tengok ni lagi satu daun ketumbar. Abang awak pun hari tu Akak suruh beli daun sup dia beli daun ketumbar. Sama je korang 3 beradik. Ha3. Wawa beli paling banyak! Buat lawak je la korang ni.
I : Haa~ maknanya memang la susah nak bezakan~ ha3 
Kakak : Jangan salahkan daun, salahkan genetik.

I guess it was a funny weekend. By the way sharing my experience, I'd like tell you where can you find the difference between coriander and celery (instead of the smell). Watch the root.

This is coriander's root. And I don't have celery's root photo. Ha3
Actually, celery has more hairs at the root.

I followed Kakak to Kajang, and while passing the Sate Kajang Haji Samuri's restaurant, I asked Kakak if rabbit sate was available. I badly wondered how did rabbit's taste was like. She said it's kinda pity to eat something cute. But for me, there is no sorry for food. Ha3. And finally we went there for dinner. I only ordered 2 sticks of rabbit sate.

This is sate rabbit. For me, the taste is same as chicken. But it's sweeter. 
And no more! Enough. Cuz I expected more. Ha3
