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!

  14. 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 :)

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

    ReplyDelete
  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.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
