It feels like ages since I last posted. The truth is that life got a little busy in my world.
Anyway, here are a few more photos from Malaysia.
Do you know the fruits shown on the right? They are langsat, (on the left) and maggis (on the right; mangoesteen in English).
Both fruits are widely available in Malaysia. My sister-in-law came home with a bag full of these exotic fruits which I haven’t tasted in over 10 years. It sure was a treat. The skin of both fruits are discarded. The small langsat (make a circle with your index finger and thumb – that’s about the size of the fruit) is easily eaten as the skin is soft and can be peeled away like banana skin. The skin of the manggis is harder. Place it between both hands and gently press your palms together. The pressure will pop the fruit. The skin has a reddish stain so I am careful to keep it away from my clothes.
Pop a piece into the mouth, and the flesh of both fruits seems to melt. Be sure to spit out any seeds, and enjoy the sweet juicy taste :D.
My friend just arrived home from Hokkaido, Japan and she gave me this beautiful box of chocolates. Don’t you just love the packaging and colours?
There were many flavours such as passionfruit, berries, chocolate (of course!), green tea, etc. You’d notice that two pieces have gotten a little bit misshapened – the hot weather in Malaysia made the pieces soft, and when I tried to pick them up…
Hope you are having a great new year so far.
