Causes or Motivation for Rape

***OMG, I am a damn copycat. Meow~~~~.... Wait a minute. No, I am not. I did give proper credit to where it is due. So, NOT a copycat but a uncopydog. A very handsome uncopydog. Woof...(Forgive my lame attempt at cracking a joke. I had to. It's that spontaneous moment kind of thing.)***



Instead of blaming the females, let us analyze what are the causes or the motivation for rape.

Lets see the types of rape before we continue any further shall we? Rapists are said to be motivated by anger, power, and sadism. First up is the anger rape.

Anger rape

Anger rape is characterized by physical brutality with the rapist using far more force than is necessary to subdue the victim. The experience for the offender is one that is of conscious anger and rage. He/she expresses his/her rage both physically and verbally upon the victim during the attack.

His/her aim is to hurt and debase his or her victim. He/she often shows his/her contempt through abusive and profane language. The anger rapist considers rape the ultimate offense he/she can commit against the victim. Such a rapist strikes sporadically and infrequently, because the attack will discharge his/her anger and relieves his/her frustrations for a time.

But eventually he/she will reach his/her boiling point once more and offend again. His/her need is to hurt and degrade his/her victim, his/her weapon being sex and his/her motive is revenge. The research on convicted rapists has found several important motivational factors in the sexual aggression of males. Those motivational factors repeatedly implicated are having anger at women and having the need to control or dominate them.

In one study, it was found that rapists had less empathy toward women that had been sexually assaulted by an unknown assailant and more hostility toward women than non sex offenders and non offender males/females.

Source: Wikipedia


That makes much more sense than saying that it is women' fault for wearing sexy clothes. A lot more sense. You see, angry people tend to be irrational. There is just no reasoning with angry people. However, although the motivation for rape might be anger, that does not also mean that all angry men will be horny lowlife bastard rapists.

This is because if all angry men are motivated by anger to rape, then there would be more rape cases happening because there are a lot of angry men in our society nowadays. There are also a lot angry women but lets focus on angry men shall we?

Thus, we cannot just say that anger alone is the motivation for rape. However, the anger rape type IS done by very angry men who wants to release their frustrations and feel the need to inflict pain and degrade their victim by raping them.

Therefore there is also one important element coupled with the anger factor that contributes to this anger rape type. That is the criminal element. People with criminal tendency would have violence affinity and that coupled with anger would cause a huge problem. One of it would be the anger rape.

Now, lets see the second type of rape. The power rape.

Power rape

The objective of the power rapist is to control the victim, not to harm them. Sexuality becomes a way to compensate for their underlying feelings of inadequacy and feeds their issues of mastery, control, strength, authority and capability.

The power rapist relies upon verbal threats, intimidation with a weapon, and only uses the amount of force necessary to subdue his victim. The power rapists tends to have fantasies about sexual conquests and rape. They may even believe that even though the victim initially resists them, that once they overpowers their victim, the victim will eventually enjoy the rape.

The rapist needs to believe that the victim enjoyed "it", and they may even ask the victim for a date later. Because this is only a fantasy, the rapist does not feel reassured by either their own performance or the victim's response. The rapist feels that they must find another victim, convinced that this victim will be "the right one". Hence, their offenses may become repetitive and compulsive. They may commit a series of rapes over a short period of time.

The feminist theory of rape theory is summarized by Susan Brownmiller's statement: "rape is nothing more or less than a conscious process of intimidation by which all men keep all women in a state of fear".It asserts that what feminists see as the male domination of female in socio-political and economic domains is the ultimate cause of most rapes, and considers male-female rape to be a crime of power that has little or nothing to do with sex itself.

Social learning theory of rape is similar to the feminist theory and links cultural traditions such as imitation, sex-violence linkages, rape myths (e.g. "women secretly desire to be raped"), and desensitization to the core causes of rape. The focus is on male-female rape with no explanations offered for male-male or female-perpetrated forms of rape.

Warren Farrell took issue with the feminist idea that rape has nothing to do with sex by noting that (male-female) rape statistics show young and sexually attractive females are raped far more often than older, less sexually attractive females.

Source: Wikipedia

That also makes much more sense than saying that lipsticks would encourage rape. The power rape types are really fucked up in the mind department. They relish the intimidation and the control they have over their victims. More than often, they would have already brainwashed themselves into thinking that the victims would enjoy the rape hence they actually believe that they are doing a favor for the victims.

This type of rape is actually considered the least mild compared to the other types because the rapists do not want to cause harm to the victim but just want to show that they are in control and that the victims would gradually enjoy the rape. Like I said, mentally fucked up this type of rapists are.

I would think that this is mainly influenced by the tonnes of adult/porn videos that shows that the actors enjoyed being forcefully violated. This leaves a huge impact on the minds of the rapists and thus they are brainwashed into thinking that what they are doing are actually not wrong. And that motivates them to rape.

However, again we cannot really say that watching adult/porn videos alone would cause people to go on a rape rampage because there are A LOT of people out there watching adult/porn videos right now. I am pretty darn sure of it.

So, again the criminal and violence elements contribute to the motivation of rape. Beginning to see a trend here now? Lets move on to the third and last type of rape, the sadistic rape.

Sadistic rape

In the sadistic rape, the rapist transforms anger and power so that aggression becomes sexual and thus eroticized for them. The rapist finds intentional maltreatment of their victim sexually gratifying. The rapist takes pleasure in the victims torment, distress and anguish.

Sadistic rape usually involves torture and restraint. Sometimes it can take on ritualistic or other bizarre qualities. The victim's injuries will be primarily focused on the sexual areas of her body; there may be mutilation of these areas. The rapist may use some type of instrument or foreign object to penetrate his victim.

The sadistic rapists' assaults are deliberate, calculated and preplanned. They will often wear a disguise or will blindfold his victim. Prostitutes or other women whom they perceives to be "promiscuous" are often the sadistic rapists targets. The victims of a sadistic rapist may not survive the attack. For some offenders, the ultimate satisfaction is gained from murdering the victim.


Source: Wikipedia

That also makes much more sense than saying that high-heeled shoes, the type that makes tapping sound would be the motivation for rape. What? don't tell me that there are people who are aroused by just hearing the tapping sound of the shoes? Sick. Real sick.

The sadistic rape is more to the sex maniac (SM) type. The type that takes pleasure in the victims' pain and torment. This type is even more twisted than the mentally fucked up power rape type. This is even more mentally fucked up and twisted added into in.

The motivation for rape for the sadistic rapists is that they can only be satisfied and be pleasured by inflicting pain on their victim or even themselves in the process. This is the type of rapists that would even continue raping the victims after killing them or even do the hideous act while stabbing the victim and only stopping the rape after the victims are limp lifelessly.

The sadistic rapists are normally serial rapists and even serial killers and are really the worst type in the 3 type of rape categories. The victims often would not be alive after the rape as ultimately the victims would be tortured sexually until death.

There are definitely elements of criminal, violence and mentally disorder that motivates this type of rape. The obsession to see the life slowing fading from their victims as they enjoy raping until the victims died motivates them.

There, done with the analysis and what yours truly think. What do you think? What are your opinions regarding the matter?

Blame the Females

It's quite disturbing that the females are the ones to be blamed for rape cases as according to some people, rape only happen because the females are the one that encourage rape.

Shocking? Apparently this some people also added that it is due to the way the females dress and present themselves that makes rapists aroused and hence leads to the rape. Even more unbelievable is that, the some people even gives analogy of the fish and cat. So, blame the females is equivalent to blame the fish in the analogy sense.

It goes like this, if you dangle a fish in front of a cat, for sure the cat is going to eat the fish. As simple as that. The same goes for some buffoon that says, if you put a piece of meat on the street, definitely the cats or dogs are going to eat it. Oh yeah, blame the fish and meat then.

Oh my GOD. How can people be so ignorant? Now, let's looks at the fish and meat case. First of all, lets say you dress the fish or piece of meat up the cat would still eat it. Correct? So, it does not make any sense doing an analogy like that.

fish burqaThe cat would just tear it open

meat burqaAgain, to tear open is very very easy



The most important point here is that, we are human beings. We are civilized. How can we be compared to animals? To make that analogy is an insult to us. Make a better analogy next time and don't make a fool of yourself. Go on, blame the females. That's right, go on.

Blaming on how women dress and present themselves as the main reason rape happens is an all time low. Very very low indeed. It's like shifting the blame on the rapists to the women and make it as if the rapists are forced to rape.

There are only one reason why rape happens and that is because those rapists are horny bastards with criminal intention. It does not matter how females are dressed or present themselves. How many rape cases that happens because of attire induced influence?No matter what, the rapists are to be blamed NOT the females.

This might be old news but it is relevant to this post, school uniform worn by girls at government school are condemned because it encourage rape and pre-marital sex, so here it goes:

KUALA LUMPUR: A Malaysian group condemned the uniform worn by girls at government schools, saying it encouraged rape and pre-marital sex.

“The white blouse is too transparent for girls and it becomes a source of attraction,” National Islamic Students Association of Malaysia vice-president Munirah Bahari said in a statement.

“It becomes a distraction to men, who are drawn to it, whether or not they like looking at it,” she said, calling for a review of uniform policy so that it did not violate Islamic ideals.

In multicultural Malaysia, home to majority-Muslim Malays as well as ethnic Chinese and Indians, female students at government schools have a choice of wearing a white blouse with a knee-length skirt or pinafore.

They may also wear a “baju kurung” and a headscarf is optional for Malay students.

Munirah said that “covering up” according to Islamic precepts was important to fend off social ills, including “rape, sexual harassment and even premarital sex.”

“This leads to babies born out of wedlock and, to an extent, even prostitution,” she said.

“Decent clothes which are not revealing can prevent and protect women from any untoward situations,” she said, suggesting that girls wear a blouse of a different colour or with an undergarment.

However, the girls themselves also came in for criticism, with the association saying that some used the white blouse to lure men.

“This is the source of the problem, where we can see that schoolgirls themselves are capable of using this to attract men to them,” Munirah said.

“This could see them getting molested, having premarital sex and all sorts of things.” – AFP

Now, before I go any further. Some of you might never seen Malaysian school uniform thus unable to make any judgments. Here, picture of Malaysian Government School Uniform taken from tacsin website.

Malaysian School UniformSexy? Where?


Now, tell me that the uniforms are sexy. Very very sex appealing. Please. And that, uniform like that will encourage rape and pre-marital sex. Tell me it will please.

What a load of crap and nonsense. The school uniform is nowhere sexy. Not even near. How is that possible to say it encourage rape and pre-marital sex? Maybe they are referring to what's underneath. If that is the case, then it is the same if they wear like an Eskimo 24/7.

Even if women wear sexy clothes, who says that it is ok for rapists to rape? The way they mention it, is as if the women are the cause of the rape. Oh, yeah blame the females. It would be a lot easier that way. I would not be surprised if rape cases are on the rise because of all this blame the females theory.

Hell, if that is the case then all you rich people out there. I demand that you give me all your money and properties NOW in order for you NOT to be robbed in the future. Why risk it right? Yes, just send it to me. This is relevant as it is the same as saying that rape happens because females wear sexy clothes.

Still sticking and believing with the blame the females for the rape thing? Again, how women dress and present themselves does not make it right as an excuse for the rape to happen. Those sick horny lowlife bastard rapists would rape even the electric pole if they could.

And then, this morning yours truly came across the following article about putting on lipstick and wearing high-heeled shoes restrictions.

KOTA BARU: Muslim women employees working here are forbidden to wear lipstick and high-heeled shoes to work.

This directive is contained in a municipal council circular dated May 25 and signed by its president Shafie Ismail, which has been distributed to business premises here.

A check, however, found that only a few tenants had received the circular this week.

The circular stated that the directive, targeted at Muslim women employees working in food outlets and other business premises, was issued to prevent incidents like rape and illicit sex as well as to safeguard the morals and dignity of Muslim women in Kelantan.

It stated that Muslim women were forbidden to wear thick make-up, bright coloured lipstick and high-heeled shoes which made a tapping sound.

Those who insisted on wearing high-heeled shoes should choose those with rubber soles.

Attempts to contact Shafie for clarification were futile.

The directive on the wearing of lipstick and high-heeled shoes are in addition to the wearing of scarves, which should cover the chest and not be of transparent material, blouses with long sleeves, which were long and loose, as well as socks.

Those who do not adhere to the regulation can be fined up to RM500. – Bernama

Source: The STAR


Yes, you read it correctly. Now, NOT only blame the females for their attires that causes rape but also because of lipstick and high-heeled shoes. Not just any high-heeled shoes ok? The type that makes a tapping sound is the culprit. -_-"

So, the restrictions of the lipsticks and high-heeled shoes are to prevent incidents like rape and illicit sex. Oh yeah, those are the cause of rape. The main factors.

I think I am beginning to get it now. I am starting to see how they actually think about the matter. The equation should be something like the following:

Rape equationWomen + so called sexy clothes + high-heeled shoes + lipstick = Causes of Rape


Now you understand why rape happen huh? Based on the equation of course it is easy to understand. NOT.

So, serial killers can just defend themselves by saying that it's not their fault for killing people. It is the victims that encourage the serial killer to murder/kill them. I see a very very disturbing trend if the "blame the women for rape" becomes what people believe in. Of which I still believe that majority of the population are still sane by being able to think otherwise. What a relief.

Again I would like to EMPHASIZE that women are not to blame for rape. How can anyone even capable of thinking that the causes of rape are women wearing so called sexy clothes, high-heeled shoes and lipstick?

Anyway, the information are all above. Judge for yourself whether it is even remotely possible to blame the women and not the bastard lowlife rapists for rape.

Video of The Puppies

Anyway, here's the video of the puppies. Enjoy.

Puppies Alert

The story begins with my sis getting a mixed chi hua hua named Princeton.

Now, this Princeton is one horny dog that always tried to hump anything that crosses its path to satisfy his insane lust. As can be seen in the video in the post Mating Season.

Anyway, the last straw came when this Princeton even tries to hump Lucky. Scared that Princeton might turn gay, my sis desperately looks for a female dog for Princeton to hump rape make love to.

And for your information, Lucky is a healthy male terrier. So, Princeton and Lucky are always together with Princeton ever ready to wait till Lucky let his guard down to start the humping plan as can be seen in the Men's Best Friend post.

So, my sis got a female miniature pinscher or popularly known as a MinPin with the name Tinkerbell. Tinkerbell is to be the sacrifice humping-mate wife of Princeton. At first, Princeton is quite skeptical and still tries to hump Lucky but as time passes, he begins to give attention to Tinkerbell.

Then on one stormy fateful night, Tinkerbell is raped humped by Princeton not once but twice forcefully. I shall omit the details now as it contains obscenity and will do away with the pictures as well.

To cut the long story short. This is what happened after the fateful incident.

Miniature Pincsher PregnantPregnant
(Tinkerbell:Oww, Princeton. You must take responsibility...You MUST)
(Princeton: Baby, of course I will. Don't be silly. What makes you think I wont be responsible?)



Tinkerbell's tummy grow with each day passes. OMG, she is pregnant and Princeton is going to be a dad soon. Small little Tinkerbells and Princetons running about.
(What do you expect? This is the result of not using a condom. Even with condom there are possibility of leakage. So, always be certain if you are just the one night stand type or even if you are in a relationship but not prepared to have children.- This public awareness service is brought to you by BenardCometh Revelations. Always Play Safe and No Regrets Later. =p)

Back to the focus of this post. During the pregnancy period, Princeton started to aim for Lucky again. Geez, a bisexual dog he is.

After around 64 days, this morning Tinkerbell finally give birth to 3 cute puppies. At first only two puppies "dropped" out and the mommy was up about and even went to pee and after a while the third of which is the largest among the puppy finally "drop" out making the total of 3 puppies.

PuppiesMommy TinkerBell


Tinkerbell became quite aggressive when the other dogs try to approach the puppies. The maternal instinct kicks into action trying to protect her babies. However, she allows us to approach and have a good look at the puppies. Guess she understand the saying ," Don't bite the hand that feeds you".

Spellings

***Yours Truly am back after wrestling control from those resident weirdos who claim that they are from BenardCometh Revelations.***


This is quite interesting.


There are times where people would be very particular about spellings as if it meant everything. Not to mention grammar and stuff, of which Yours Truly am not really that good at the mastery of the English language as proven in the learning English in Kuching post.

Anyway, back to the focus of the post. I got this in email and found that it is quite interesting to read. It shows that spellings doesn't really matter in a way. Of course professionally spellings are very very important okay? So, master your spellings.

Read the followings and see if you can read the paragraphs.

Cna yuo raed tihs? Olny 55 plepoe tuo fo 100 anc.

So, can you read the above paragraphs because only 55 out of 100 people are able to read it. Or so it says.

And it is stated that if you can read it then your brain is 50% faster than those who can't read it. How's that for an ego boost?
(However, I really doubt if there are anyone who really can't read em. I am beginning to think that I am taken for a fool. Anyone who can't read please stand up? Please?????)

p/s: No animals are injured during the process of the ego boost. If there are, then it is purely coincidental and does not have anything to do with this author.

Last but not least, leave the kitten alone will ya? Kittens are innocent. Very.

Multi Level Marketing aka MLM Chronicles

Greetings,

This is the cheerful and friendly resident MLM analyzer at BenardCometh Revelations. I will be handling posts regarding all that are MLM.

I am sure almost all of you are familiar with Multi Level Marketing aka MLM or at least exposed to it at one point in your life. If you never heard of it then good, stay away. Especially ones that requires you to recruit members or so called down lines in order to profit more.

Speaking from experience, undergraduates seems to be the most easily manipulated. It's quite ironic in the sense that undergraduates are suppose to be more educated and able to have that critical thinking mindset. Guess that education does at times makes one dumber. Greed is after all the main cause of downfall.

Have you ever been asked to attend an outing where you ended up in some MLM seminar where there seems to be some kind of cult going on? People being over friendly all of a suddenly until it is quite freaky? Or even people in suits all over listening to some so called "famous" and "established" speakers? All promising success and wealth that can be gained easily. Yeah right, famous and established my ass.

Those seminars are usually done to "brainwash" the young, naive and gullible you into joining. The so called "famous" and "established" speakers are masters of deceptions and almost always try to influence by examples, joke, testimonies, and etc. There is a saying. "If it is too good to be true, it is". There is always no free lunch in this world.

The biggest problem with MLM would be the market saturation. They would tell you that it is NOT a problem because there are so many people in this world and that not everyone will join so the market saturation thing is alright. No problem there.

Yeah right, no problem my ass. MLM focus on recruiting members as the main means of earning money. The more you recruit the better and all are promised with easy money as long as they can recruit more members. That is where the market saturation comes to play, do the math. One do not need to become Einstein to realize that the model is not sustainable.

But then again, you will think that there is no problem as long as you can recruit the initial 10 members to gain back your investments and any additional extras would be easy profit, the others have to find their own victims or suckers members/down lines. That is where you are wrong you stinking selfish bastard, that is equivalent to cheating/scam and last I checked scam is illegal.

It is still ok if the population growth can outgrow the recruitments then you will not have the market saturation problem, but that is NOT the case in real world. The other 10 members of yours will have to find 10 members each and them another 10 members each who believe or shall I say brainwashed into believing that they can make money by recruiting more members.

Use some common sense and do the math, it will even be more than the Earth's population. What? Don't tell me you plan to recruit monkeys next and use banana currency do you? That my dear Watson is market saturation. Don't lie to yourself and deny the market saturation problem. It exists and will be relevant for times to come.

Then, some smart ass MLM people come up with new models. Lets us recruit 5 people, 3 people, 2 people. That way we can say that market saturation is not a problem or even that way, the people can be fooled into thinking that the market will have more potential members. Market saturation would just magically disappear. Yeah right, keep on dreaming. Again, use some common sense and do the math.

"But but but but, we are focused on the product rather than recruiting members. Of course recruiting members would be better but really the products matter. Really." Really my ass.

Most MLMs uses the products as a diversion from the real money making scheme which is recruiting members. It is a way to "dress up" so that it looks legal instead of looking like a scam. Well, the products might be good but lets be realistic. In most of the cases, the products are not the incentive or motivation to join MLM but the promise of success and wealth by recruiting more people. The products act as a cover or front to legalize things.

Now, if the product is so great and so good, then why is it not being sold through the normal way/method where they could potentially earn more than what they are earning. Not focused on recruiting people mah you say. Focus more on product mah you say. Then why does the products need to use so called "special marketing" aka MLM? Think about it will ya?

So, don't give me the bullshit that the MLM are focus on products or even the tactic of being a member so that the products can be cheaper. Well, if that is the case then there is no need for you to look for members right? You just want to buy cheaper products. Heck, don't even join as member, every time you want to buy, then buy from the MLM guy/gal. They can get member price mah. Same also right?

Almost always, those expert MLM people would give example of the top few dogs with their success story and their fat income not to mention the cars they drive such as BMW, Merc, Sport cars and the like. From there, they hope to influence by selling the "dream".

How many people needed as cannon fodder or victims for them to reach where they are? To have the so called "success" they have? Stop and think for a moment will ya?

No, where got victims? They are where they are by purely selling products. It's the product emphasize approach that they use. They have their own mojo in selling products you know? Yeah right, selling products my ass.

Snap out of the dream already. The reality is that more than often it is always hundreds of people as victim or sacrificial lambs to be one of the successful ones in MLM. This is always done by manipulation and deceptions of which gives false hope and dreams.

And that will be all for this edition. There might be more in the future depending on whether I feel like posting or not. Most probably I will as I have a lot to say about this matter. A whole lot.

Thank you for reading until this point. My apology for the bad usage of English. It must be a pain to read through all of the above.

Pardon for the excessive usage of "my ass". Lately I have this fascination with my ass that borders on obsession. So beware, I bite. Grrrrr.

Sumimasen.

Pork Rib Dish aka Pai Gu Wang

Greetings,

This is the friendly resident chef of BenardCometh Revelations taking over for this post in order to reveal to all of you the heavenly secret of making a heavenly dish.

This time around, you all will learn how to make delicious irresistible Chinese Pork Rib dish or known as "Pai Gu Wang".
(Pardon me, my Muslim friends. This is a traditional Chinese dish that uses pork as the main ingredient. However, you can always replace the choice of meat to beef or even chicken. The texture won't be the same but the flavor is.)

Just to show you what you will be making, here's a picture for you to get motivated.

Don't drool all over now. In just a few simple steps, you will learn how to make the pork rib dish yourself. It is very easy to make and I will try to make it easier by making a graphical how-to.

The ingredients needed are:

Pork
Soy sauce
Onion
Garlic
Sesame seed
Pepper
Corn powder/Corn flour
Frying powder
Pineapple
Tomato sauce
Chili Sauce



Alright, done with the ingredients. Lets start shall we?


First of all, slice the pork into considerable size

The first part of making the dish is done. Now lets move on to making the sauce. The sauce is a very important element in the dish as it gives the flavor while the meat gives the texture feel. Mix together and you will get one heck of a dish.

So, the preparation of the sauce.

Slice the onions

Slice the garlic into small pieces

When the mixture smells nice, throw in the pineapples and add some tomato sauce and chili sauce. Stir for a while and proceed to add some juice from the pineapple can. After that throw in the fried pork and proceed to mix them together.

Before we continues, a little bit of info here. I am using the canned pineapple as it is easier. Fresh pineapple is always the best choice, but canned pineapple will do just fine.

Canned pineapple
Any brand of canned pineapple will do.


I am using this brand just because I am very patriotic. Very. Madness? Madness? This is MALAYSIA!!!!!!!!!...
(Go watch 300 if you don't know the phrase.. Not the figure 300 that you draw yourrself.. its the Movie "300" , my dear Watson....=p)

Anyway, lets get back to the focus of the post alright? It's the end already anyway. After stir-fry it for a while, just a while after you add in the fried pork, pour the content into a bowl and one pork rib dish is completed.

BenardCometh Revelations 1st Anniversary

Time really flies.
(if that is the case and if the saying,"Time flies when you are having fun" rings true then it shows that I am having fun? or am I not?)

Almost forget that this month is the 1st year anniversary for BenardCometh Revelations.

Yes, Yours Truly will not just stick to a mere day for the anniversary but will take the whole month, the month of June as the anniversary because the specific day celebration for anniversary is popularized by all of you mere mortals hence the need for a whole month as indication for BenardCometh Revelations to show uniqueness.
(Yeah right, in another words this yours truly forget when exactly is the date he starts his first post.)

I first started to churn out posts on a wordpress platform at the Alpha and Omega Revelations.

Then I moved on to blogspot/blogger since it is way easier to remember my log in and password as it is connected to my gmail account. It tends to get quite confusing if like me, you have hundreds of online accounts with different login and passwords.

When I made the move to blogspot, I figures that Alpha and Omega Revelations doesn't really sounds right so BenardCometh Revelations comes to existence.

Why BenardCometh Revelations? It's quite simple and straightforward actually. The arrival of Benard to reveal hence BenardCometh Revelations is to have all the revelations by Benard for the public eye. To be scrutinized by the public.

With BenardCometh Revelations comes the tag line "Revealing What's Not" which is not shown in this first incarnation of BenardCometh Revelation but will be shown in the rebirth of BenardCometh Revelations.

Yes, the changes of the layout will mark this rebirth which will be soon before the month ended but do not expect much extravagant or fanciness from the rebirth as that is for the materialistic mere mortals that dwell on earthly possessions whereas the rebirth borders on the ugly or the fugly if that is even considered a word.

The reasons being that without ugly-there will be no beautiful, without bad-there will be no good, and without evil-there will be no holy. The beautiful is only beautiful because of comparison with ugly, the good is only good because the comparison with bad, and the holy is only holy because of the comparison with evil. With the existence of Hell there is a Heaven and vice versa.

Like the saying goes, "I don't go to Hell, who go to Hell" or in Cantonese, "Ngor Pat yap Dei Yuk, Shui Yap Dei Yuk".

With that, the rebirth is aimed for humanity and mankind and womankind. Have to add the womankind part cuz if not will risk being seen as gender discrimination.

"Itu dia, Tuan Tuan dan Puan Puan sekalian. Ulangtahun pertama BenardCometh Revelations. Kenduri 40 hari 40 malam untuk meraikannya."

Roughly the above sentences are translated as:
That is it ladies and gentlemen. BenardCometh Revelations first anniversary. Let there be a feast for 40 days and 40 nights to celebrate.

"Sekian, terima kasih kerana sudi membaca dari mula hingga sekarang. Trimas."
(That's all, thank you for willing to reading from the start until now. Thanks.)

Happy Duan Wu Jie aka Rice Dumpling Festival

Well, tomorrow is the fifth day of the fifth month in the Chinese Lunar calendar which indicates that it is "Duan Wu Jie" aka Rice Dumpling Festival.

From the name, it is obvious that Rice Dumplings or "Zong Zi" are eaten during this festival. That is why it is called the Rice Dumpling Festival. Well, there is quite an interesting story behind the festival of which I have already posted last year in the post titled "HAPPY RICE DUMPLING FESTIVAL aka DRAGON BOAT FESTIVAL". Go read and be enlightened.

So, now you know the story. Intriguing huh?

Anyway, BenardCometh Revelations are going to show all of you how to make the Rice Dumpling aka "Zong Zi" yourself. D.I.Y yo.

Before that, I need to clarify that I am not the one who makes the rice dumplings. Todays How-To is a courtesy of my grandmother. She makes the best food I ever tasted, not to mention the best rice dumplings.
(Well, I would know how to D.I.Y rice dumplings after this. Same goes for all of you.)

Alright, lets get started. First of all lets have a look at the ingredients. The ingredients needed to make rice dumplings are:

Bamboo LeavesBamboo Leaves
(the bigger the better)


Dried ShrimpDried Shrimp

MushroomMushroom

NutsNuts

OnionsOnions

Glutinous RiceGlutinous Rice

PorkPork


The ingredients depend on preferences. You can always add whatever ingredients that you want. For example, chicken, prawn, fish, and etc. However, traditionally it is made using the ingredients mentioned above. Sort of.

Cleaned Bamboo LeavesWash and Clean
(you will need to have some nylon strings to tie the wrapped dumplings)



The first step is to prepare the ingredients. Wash the bamboo leaves and the glutinous rice. Then stir-fry the glutinous rice in a pan with some soy sauce and pepper.

Stir fry glutinous ricestir-fry the glutinous rice


Then, cut the pork and mushroom into smaller pieces. After that, slice the onion and stir-fry it in a pan with a little bit of oil. Mix the dried shrimp, pork, mushroom, and nut together with the onion in the pan. Stir-fry a bit then add in some soy sauce and pepper. Basically, just season to your liking.

Ingredient MixIngredient mixture


Up to this stage, you are almost done. The only thing left is to wrap the rice dumplings and the ingredients with the bamboo leaves.

There are some techniques required in order to get a properly wrapped rice dumplings.

First of all, get two bamboo leaves and align them in a way that the half portion of the leave is on top of the half portion of the other bamboo leave. This is so that there will be enough space to contain the ingredients.

Aligning Bamboo LeavesAligning the bamboo leaves


After that fold the leaves in cone-like manner where you will get a pocket-like hole with the pointy edge pointing away from you. Use fingers to make sure the hole is closed off or formed properly.

Making a pocketTesting the hole pocket


When you are satisfied with the pocket, start to fill a portion of the pocket with glutinous rice.

Fill in ingredientsStarting to fill the pocket


Fill it with enough glutinous rice as a base for the main ingredients. The base should look something like the following.

When that is done, put some of the mixed ingredients on top of the glutinous rice as the fillings. Make sure it can contain the fillings.

After that, put some more glutinous rice on top of the fillings to cover it.

Almost there, you see the long jutting side of the leave? Push the leave to cover the ingredients in order to wrap it. It might be difficult at first but with practice, nothing is impossible. The wrapping steps are like the followings:

After giving the final light squeeze, tie it up with the nylon strings prepared earlier and you will get the uncooked wrapped rice dumplings.
