The Mushroom called “Ombulung”

Long time ago when I start my blog, I was do my posting about the story of Ombulung on 31st January 2008. My grandma told me that this kind of mushroom will grow up when the weather became so cold and only one times in year. I am not so sure if the fact about this mushroom is true or not but, during the past week until this day it was always rain and some part of Sabah, Malaysia having a big problem because flood that affected their village. Maybe because of the changing and dropping of temperature, again this year this “Ombulung” mushroom appear and grow up next to my auntie house.

This time 4th of Febuary 2009, in the morning I join my grandma to search and pull out all mushrooms. I bring my old digital camera with me so I can take picture. Hehe.. Taking photo is fun, I love it. When I reach that place, there are so many ants and mosquito making me scary to pull out all mushrooms. When I busy pulling out the mushroom and taking photo, suddenly my grandma see what I am doing and scold me “Okon ko mogium ombulung, mapagambal ii” my grandma speak kadazan language which mean, I am not searching for ombulung but busy taking photo hehe…

In my hypothesis, looks like this mushroom is kind of rare food, I think I will post about it again in 2010 hehe.. It will grow again in first or second month.

Wow! It's so exciting to see plenty of mushrooms around you. That kind of mushroom is so tasty and quite expensive here in the Philippines. There are mushrooms available in supermarkets but the cultured kind only. Those you have are very rare.

See you again!
