These are mine!!
All of them four packets!
Fresh from the farm...
One of my office mates owns a farm and she brings a lot of mangosteens to the office. But of course, they are not free of charge... hahahaa... They are for sale! Initially one packet cost RM10... "HUH? So expensive? No, too expensive la" I told her... hahahaha.. Then later in the afternoon she reduced to RM5 per packet.... but I was hesitating, still expensive for that price per packet. I sound like very stingy... hahaha...
Then the next few days she brought some more packets and told me... "Nice ones.. RM4 per packet... " Ok, ok... I bought a packet and tried them.... ooooh... sweet! Very small but very juicy... !
This afternoon she brought another 4 packets for me... I looked at her smiling and asked... "How much today?" And I bought all of them because they cost only RM3 per packet! hahahaha... Prices change every now and then like stock market! hahahaa..
They are quite small in sizes... but do not judge them by their looks...
As long as they are fresh and sweet, these are worth buying at RM3 per packet!
I took more than 10 fruits already!
My very light lunch....
Avocado, mangosteens and some agar-agar...
What a weird combination!
By the way, I wonder how much the mangosteens will cost tomorrow....
After my promotion here, it might go up to RM5....
But mangosteen contains a lot of sugar :xReplyDelete
But I heard they are good in cancer prevention too...Delete
I love mangosteen!!!!ReplyDelete
Who cares about sugar content! LOL
hahahaa... Natural sugar should be alright...Delete
oh, i love mangosteen!!! oh, i love avocado!!! oh, i love agar-agar!!! errr, weird meh?? okay wat, very light and refreshing.. but then tarak cukup for me lah, gotta have something savory for lunch baru ada shyiok leh~~ :DReplyDelete
Yeah.. I have savory this morning.. so lunch time just something light will do...Delete
I like mangoesteens but cannot eat so much.. Later 'sap yeet'.. Wah the price everyday change.. Haha.. From rm10 to rm5 to rm4 to rm3.. I laughing la.. I dont really like avocado coz they are tasteless and 'buttery'.. I prefer to mix avocado into my egg potato salad.. hehe..ReplyDelete
I agree with you.. I don't know why.. my avocado seems to be very hard even though the skin already turned dark green.. and very wrinkled.. hmmm.. something wrong somewhere..Delete
I love mangosteen but people say cannot eat durian & mangosteen together. How true is it, I don't know. Just eat moderate, not too much, scare sugar rush.ReplyDelete
Oh I thought they must be eaten together ? One is heaty and one is cooling... anyway, I didnt take durians today...Delete
I love mangosteens! The small ones are better, juicy and no seeds. Wah you terror in bargaining huh? Until jatuh harga hah...hah...best lah 4 packets of mangosteens to be enjoyed. I also like avocado but I don't eat plain like that. Mash with eggs or bake with eggs. Or better still make avocado smoothie with chocolate sauce. Syurga!ReplyDelete
In the end, I took 2 packets only.. gave two away to my friends.. hahahaa... so many how to finish... Avocado bake with eggs? Oh... I didn't know that.. but then ah, this avocado is so hard!!Delete
Not yet ripe hah..hah...Delete
All of the above, i loves...ReplyDelete
hahaaa.. you are a very simple eater... er.. just like me. hahahaa..Delete
LOL...at how u cut ur avocado. supposed to be cut n twist..:PReplyDelete
oh cannot twist la.. cos so hard! I dont know whether it can ripen or not...Delete
Gosh avocados still with seed intact; you must have used a super sharp knife!ReplyDelete
Coincidently, I just bought some mangosteens too @ rm5 for 2kgs; can't wait to have them tonight! :)
Wahhhh..cheap wor... I didnt weight mine.. so not sure how many kg...Delete
wah...mangosteen!!! I miss it sooo much!! I tink the price here in KL is not yet 'jatuh'...lucky u to have a colleague who owns a farm.ReplyDelete
Owns a farm but still not very cheap leh.. but fresh la...Delete
I love to eat mangosteens too but did not eat then recently because I think they are expensive too. Small bunch RM10.ReplyDelete
IC... if sold in shops sure expensive...Delete
Wwah you must be super strong, can cut the avocado seed in half. I must eat avocado with bread.ReplyDelete
Oh cos it was so hard, I have to cut it with a knife... I don't like it.. not yammy enough..Delete
Did you make the jelly?ReplyDelete
No, I bought them.. 6 for RM2! :)Delete
Hubby bought back a few KGs of mangosteen last few days, a bit sourish la! >.<ReplyDelete
Oh next time buy smaller ones perhaps?Delete
Oh I love mangosteens. It is v expensive here (SFO). Avocado - you have to eat it when it it ripen (a bit soft). and can make california rolls. Check out recipes online. Avocado is packed with nutrients. http://www.californiaavocado.com/nutrition/ ..more than durians :)ReplyDelete
Thanks for information!Delete
o when you cut avocado. dont have to slice thru the seed. check out this websiteReplyDelete
Well I have to say that the purple bags are very pretty, too. Maybe that was why the price was so high!! We do not have any fruits that look like this, wish I could taste!ReplyDelete
Purple bags? hahahaa..Ginny, they are plastic bags.. not environmental friendly though...Delete
Wahhhhh!!! Fruits only for lunch. Mangosteens are good for health, but unfortunately, I do not like them. I love avocado!!!ReplyDelete
But the avocado seems to be very hard .. i wonder why...Delete
Wow, I like mangosteens...but long time didn't have it already...ReplyDelete
This is the time of the year to get some!Delete
Thank you for coming by.. .ReplyDelete
No durians to go with mangosteen ?ReplyDelete
Maybe today.. hahahaa..Delete
One positive thing about mangosteen almost 99% of them are sweet and chances of it getting bad ones are pretty low. Unlike durians there are so many 'brands' & types can get 'sung fun shu', rotten ones, not sweet etc.ReplyDelete
One is leong and one is yit... so got to combine them...Delete
avacado is leong punya ka?ReplyDelete
NO la.. but the avocado tak boleh dimakan one.. so hard!Delete
Claire, the mangosteen looks nice and I didn't know you cannot eat lots at one time. I didn't eat this fruit for quite some time. I hate the liquid that will stain the clothes.ReplyDelete
Oh I love mangosteens too... juicy...Delete
