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!

  19. Wow, I like mangosteens...but long time didn't have it already...

  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.

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
