Ca ttial cu ka huam nain zeiruang sat ah dah blog ka tuah ti ka rak hngalh lo caah a si. Zei ni dah ca ttial a ka thawk ter tthan timi hi post ah hin ttial ka duh.

Hi blog ka thawk tthannak hi Lana Del Ray a chimmi bia ruang ah a si, Will Smith nih a chimmi bia ruang ah a si, Rick Warren nih a chimmi bia ruang ah a si, Salm i David nih a ttialmi bible cacang ruang ah a si, Jesus nih a chimmi ruangah a si.

Hlasakthiam Lana Del Ray nih a chimmi cu, ka nunnak a dongh tik i Pathian hmai ka dir tikah ka talent hi zeihmanh tang ti hlah sehlaw, na ka pekmi vial te ka hman dih ti khawh ka duh, ti a si. Jesus nih an kan cawnpiak mi reng a si, Matthew 25:14-30 ah mirum pa nih a sal le talents a pek tak hna nak kong kha kan theih pah dih ko. Bawipa Jesus nih talent hman lo hi uar lo ngai dawh a si. Karh ter an kan fial.

Hi pawl nih hin ka talent zeidah a si ti hngalh a ka duh ter ngai. Mah le mah i hngalh hi thil fawi lo a si. Keimah hi zeipaoh tuah a huam i thiam setmi a ngei lo phun khi ka si ve rua: rawl chuan ka ti, guitar ka ti, make-up ka ti, interior ka ti, photography ka ti, video eidit ka ti, ca ttial ka ti, thiam lak in ka tuahmi an um set lo, ka huammi a tam tak hoi. Mah caah cun Pathian ka hal, nain Pathian aw ngeih hi ka thiam lo tak hoi. Rick Warren ttialmi, the Purpose Driven Life, timi ka rel in khan Pathian nih hin ka lu chung i biahalnak ka ngeihmi hi Pastor Rick hmang in tampi a ka chimh cuahmah ti ka lung a van fiang.

Pastor Rick phung chimmi tampi chung ah voikhat cu, Pathian nih a kan serhhnawh chan le hi vawlei ah hin zei mission dah a ka chiah piak, timi kong phun khi ka ngai. Mah ah a chimmi cu Pathian nih zei bantuk thiamnak lei ahdah thluachuah a ka pek khun ti hngalh na duh ahcun zeidah na huam phun a si, zein na tuah ahdah naa lawmh, ti na kawl hmasa lai a ti. A bia ning bak in kaa hmahthah ti lo i ka ngaithiam uh. Tahchunnak ah a chimmi cu, minung nih hin lahkhah le rian sang rian niam hi kan thleidan caah kan huam phun te nakin lahkhah a sang deuhmi maw, minung upat deuhmi rian maw kan ti thim tawn, zei bantuk rian poah khi lahkhah aa khat dihmi siseh law zei rian dah naa thim lai timi in ruah i thawk, a ti.

I love and enjoy writing and I blog because I have a theory that writing might be one of my God-given talents/tasks that He wants me to develop. 🙂

Pathian pekmi talent le mission kawl ruah ahcun ka rak tuah balmi rian pawl kong cu ka tuak tthan, online ah test phunphun le quiz phunphun kaa test hen ta hehe. Ka ngakchiat lio in atu tiang ka tuahmi a tam bik cu cattial hi a si, taang 7 in hin sianginn i ca ttial zuamnak vialte ka vai i tel, cazual, megazine, timi pawl he lawng te rian ka ttuan, eidit phunphai, caholh leh ti phunphai, report ttial ti phunphai hi a tam bik ka tuahmi a si i, kaa hne e, ti a um bal lo. Ka tuah taktak ahcun kaa nuamh ngaimi rian a si. Mah tikah, cattial cawnter le cattial lei ah tthanchoter hi Pathian nih a ka timh piakmi pakhat ah aa tel ve men lai tiah khua ka ruat.

Cattial lei ah talent ka ngei ka ti BAK LO mu, a si maw si lo ti ka test lio lawng a si rih. Ka huam phun a si pin ah ca pakhat ka ttial i ka lim tikah daihnak ka hmu i ka lung di a riam i mah hi Pathian nih a ka pekmi homework a si ko lai ti ka ruah bia a si. Ka caah Pathian tinhpiakmi ka kawlnak pakhat a si i mah cu hi blog ka ttialnak a ruang, a biapi bik a si. Minung pa zeizat nih an rel ti hi kaa buaipi lai lo ka ti nain nan rak rel i thazaang nan ka pek tikah kaa lung aa nuam tuk. Kaa lawm tuk. Keimah ca lawng ah si loin, minung tam deuh caah a si ahcun mah cu thluachuah nganpi a si ka ti.

A chim tawnmi ka pom ngai ve mi cu, zuamnak le teimaknak he aa fonh lomi talent nih cun teinak a chuahpi lo, timi hi a si. Pathian pekmi le tinhpiakmi tuan teah a hngalmi cu lawmh nan um tuk. Phaisa tampi a chuahpi lo zong ah zul chih ko, paw cawmnak le midang tlawmpal cheuh ding le khualthawnnak a tan ahcun a za ko ;).

Mah hi cu nan huam bal lai lo Part 6: Research proposal zeitin kan ttial lai?

 

 

Proposal ti cu nawl hal tiah hei let u sih law, research proposal ttial ti cu mah hi kong hi hlathlai ka duh ko tiah na sianginn nawl halnak khi a si kan ti ko lai. Research proposal ttial hi a fawi lo tuk ka ti, zeidah na hlathlai lai i zeitin dah na hlathlai lai i zeitin dah na hmuhmi cu na kherhhlei lai ti bantuk hi hngalh cia dih a hauh leng ah na kawlmi hi zei bantuk theory pawl he dah aa pehtlaih i zeiruang ahdah a biapit timi pawl vialte zong theih dih cang a hau.

Na proposal a tthat setsai lo ah le kherh a si fawn i ralrin tein tuah a haumi a si. Felfai tein ttha tein tuah cia ahcun research caah cun a bawm tuk cang fawn. Research proposal pakhat ah zeibantuk pawl dah ttial a hau timi hi sianginn pakhat le pakhat an I lo lo, faculty pakhat le pakhat zong an I lo lo. Nain, a tlangpi in Bryman (2012, p. 92) chimning ah hi pawl hi a tel ding cu an si.

  1. Na research zei kong dah (topic) a si i na research nih zeidah aa tinhmi pawl (objectives) a si?
  2. Na topic le objectives cu ziah an biapit?
  3. Na research questions (RQ) zeidah an si?
  4. Na topic, objectives le RQs pawl kong ah hin a um ciami ca pawl (literature) nih zeidah a chim? (Na kawlmi kong ah zeizat dah hmuh cia a si cang?)
  5. Na hlathlaimi caah na herhmi cu zeitin dah na kawl lai/ zeitin dah data na collect lai?

Social science he aa pehtlaimi research tuah ah hin cun RQ hi fek tuk in khiah cia a hau lem lo ti hi chim tawn a si. A hmanmi a si ko, nain siangngakchia cu kan bachelor thesis, master thesis ttialnak ah thla 6 hi a tam bik kan ngeihmi a si ko cu mu, buaktlak in. Research tuah timi cu va kawl, va hlathlai in a dih lo, hmuhmi data le information pawl hi process rih an hau, kherhhlai (analyse) an hau, mah dih in cun ttial a hau rih.

Burmese style beef curry – cawsa si (ma) pyan

This one is a very typical Burmese curry. I always thought only grown-ups can cook this one (well, real ones), however, when you really break the process down, it really isn´t that difficult. Or may be I´ve unintentionally became one of those real grown-ups, I don´t know. Anyhow, this curry is delicious, so I totally think you should try.

The ingredients

Beef                            1 kg or less (for about 5 servings)

Lime                           1

Beef powder             1 tablespoon

Chilli powder          1 tablespoon

Oil                              1 tablespoon

Salt

Onion                                    1

Garlic                         4 cloves

Ginger                        About 3x1inch piece

How we do:

First, cut the meat into smaller cubes or any shape you want, squeeze the lime over it, season with salt, beef and chilli powder and marinate it, I marinated it for a night because I like preparing stuffs beforehand. If you have 3 hours, it´s okay, an hour, fine. If you don´t have time at all, it´s still all good. You can go straight into the next step. If chilli powder is too much for you, you can ditch it and add turmeric powder; your curry will be yellow then.

 

12583942_10156405592565263_1887895519_n

Cut the onion, garlic and ginger and then grind them using mortar and pestle, or like I did, use a blender. You don´t have to blend it till you get a perfect paste out of it. If your blender has a hard time working, add a little bit of water. When the stuffs are blended, mix these with the meat; add oil and half a glass of water.

You can add more water if you opt for more sauce. Cook them in medium heat, it will take about 1.5 hour, you can do your homework meanwhile, or even better, Netflix and chill!

Spicy pork chops with bamboo shoots- Voksa le Tuai Kio

I never liked bamboo shoots, but my parents love them, so they are always in the fridge or in the soup or in the curry. So, I finally decided to give them another chance (yeah, the bamboo shoots) by eating them in a different way. And I found out that I really like them when they are stir-fried a little longer until they are around 87% dry. If you´ve always hated bamboo shoots and have never tried this way, you definitely should. Why not, right?

So, here are the ingredients of the dish:

Boneless pork chops           2 pieces

Bamboo shoots                     Some (hehe, please look at the picture)

Fresh chilli                             3 or 4 (or 0 or 1)

Chili powder                          1 tablespoon

Chicken powder                    1 tablespoon

Lime                                          0.5

Shallots                                    2

Oil (for frying)                           1.5 tablespoon

This much bamboo shoots 😀 

How we do:

Cut the pork chops into smaller pieces and mix with chicken power, chili power and lime juice, and let them marinade for a while. In the mean time, cut the bamboo shoots into thin stripes if you wish and do the same with shallots and fresh chili. Any size you cut is okay.

Then, heat the frying pan/pot in high heat, add the oil and start frying the pork chops pieces for about 8 minutes. Then add the shallots and chili, stir, and then finally the bamboo shoots .The pork was already cooked from the first 8 minutes and the bamboo shoots are made ready to eat, so it´s totally up to you how long you want to fry. For me, I like my bamboo dry, so I fry about another 15 more minutes. Oh and, please don´t forget to stir often. The chicken powder is both salty and sweet, so taste before you add another pinch of salt or the chicken powder itself.

Serve with rice. I think this will be delicious with spaghetti and pasta as well.

How I eat my lahpet thoke aka Burmese tea leaf salad

Lahpet thoke aka tea leaf salad, pickled tea leaf salad to be precise, is one of the most typical Burmese food. Lahpet means tea leaf, and thoke means salad. So, a ready-made, ready to eat lahpet package usually looks like this.

12562696_10156390034450263_1939934674_o
3 cloves of garlic is enough. Yellow ones are ginger.

Here we have a pack of pickled tea leaves and another one with crisp fried peanuts and peas and toasted sesame seeds. Some packages separate the peanuts, peas, and add other stuffs like fried garlic or other type of peas into the mix. You can eat as it is or upgrade it. Now, there are loads of different ways to eat lahpet thoke and I am happy with all of them :D. But, this is how I typically prepare the salad, easy and fuss-free.

First, I crush/grind toasted dried chilli and garlic with a little bit of salt using a mortar and pestle (don´t have ones? Its all good, you can mince them), then add the picked tea leaf. Then slice shallots or onion (I personally prefer shallot) and ginger into thin stripes. Pour everything in a large bowl and season with any type of oil and mix well together and transfer them into a clean and shallow plate.

Serve with tea. Eat with rice and it´s awesome, too.

Well, that´s how I like to eat. Some also add tomatoes and shredded cabbage, and green chilli instead of dried ones. There´s quite a lot of oil in the salad, so drink plenty of tea. If you are going out later the day or even the next day, you may want to NOT add shallots and garlic.
