Mixed Combination Mangosteen And Avocado

These are mine!!
All of them four packets! 
Fresh from the farm...
Mangosteens!!

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!  
LOL...
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....
hahahaa...

  6. 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!

  20. No durians to go with mangosteen ?

    ReplyDelete
  21. 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.

  23. 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.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again. Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists.... Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street.... Come... Let's Go! We started from the beginning of the str
