Harry Potter latest Broom Model Super Lidi 2000 Series!

I remember when I was a kid, the lidi (stick) from coconut fronds are used to hold the satay(skewered bbq meat) meat. Nowadays, everyone uses bamboo stick imported from China as a replacement for the lidi..

These nice satay that I ate at Matahari Kopitiam recently used bamboo sticks!

The lidi broom is very useful for sweeping on uneven surfaces and it was a cheap alternative to plastic types of broom. I was looking for a lidi broom for my garden and came across this modern type of lidi broom in a hypermarket. It came with a colourful plastic handle which hold all the coconut frond sticks together. In the olden days, they were held together by a rotan (cane) ring. We have to tap the top part of the lidi broom on the ground a few times to put all of them in place again to continue using it. Ahhhh, Harry Potter would be glad to have this Super Lidi 2000 series to fly around for a game of Quidditch. A great Malaysian made broom for catching the Golden Snitch Ball!......ha ha ha!

Pete, we do have that kind of broom here in the Philippines made from coconut leaves. The leaves are left to dry for weeks then pull the leaves off the stem. The stems are the ones which are made into broomsticks! Yep looks witchy. Haha.

Those were the days! We did not to buy any lidi brooms all were home made. Always faced the challenge of tying the lidi neatly in a tight bundle somehow or rather one of two would escaped.

I remember when I was a little girl, there was a coconut tree, and every time the leaves falls down... my mum will make me use those 10cent pocket knife to take away the leaves so that can harvest the lidi for broomstick. Ahahaha... now so modern liao ah? Last time my mum just tie em up wif tali rafia! =.=

The lidi broom shown in your blog has a nice packaging. It probably costs more. I haven't seen a lidi broom for years. I do miss it. It's very handy.
