Kucing galak is the unusual name given to this herb which is also considered a weed by.many people. You may say that it is the local version of catnip. Kucing in Malay meanss cat and galak is to encourage. It is said that cats love this herb. Well, I have yet to test it out. One fine day I will pluck some and bring them home for Junior and Precious and see their reaction to it.
