National Service

Just a follow-up informative post. That's my national service part. =P

I raved about my newly discovered local fruit here but was stumped when it came to telling all and sundry exactly where I bought them. A few weekends ago I made a trip up North of the Peninsula again and hunted down this elusive (to me that is as obviously it never went anywhere else) stall.

Avocado fans, thank me in fruits please for I have scored the ultimate interface instrument since discovery of the earth is round and now flat again . . . . . . . the NAME CARD.

Stall no. 7 at Tapah Rest Area on the North South Expressway .

Please note that it's on the side one travels from South to North. NOT when you travel back down to Kuala Lumpur from say, Penang.

Do use it wisely. Call in advance. I left empty handed in September. According to Mr Ooi the harvesting is done in certain months only. “Come back in October or November”, he suggested. Else just get a pomelo which I did. RM12.00 it was! It was easily smaller than my head minus all the bangs and wild wild hair. Things are getting superficially pricey Itelu and don't you get me started on our freshly minted Finance Minister proclaiming about no recession-lah, solid resources-lah, strong reserves-lah when the rest of the world is bracing for the worst and dishing out rescue packa ... blah..blah..blah.

So anyone travelling this coming Deepavalli weekend?

The butter fruit! When ripen it's great with ice-cream. Or slice it and stir fry with chicken pieces. Great taste but fill up tummy quickly.

kok, I'm a recent convert.

precious pea, taste the same to me but I don't get to eat it often. Yes, will save seed for u.

life for beginners, err personally I think trips to neighbouring countries can sometimes b more worthwhile. Very competitive in safety, courtesy, food and shopping.

cumi&ciki and nic(khkl), aiya was hoping maybe got answers like 'yes, will buy you some' or 'how many you want'.

worldwindows, so far have only eaten it raw with honey or wrapped in Jap makis. Your way sounds quite intriguing.
