.: Fruit season :.

Bountiful blessings.

If a Muslim plants a tree, that part of its produce consumed by men will be as alms-giving for him. Any fruit stolen from the tree will also be as alms-giving for him. That which the birds eat will also be as alms-giving for him. Any of its produce which people may eat thus diminishing it, will be as alms-giving for the Muslims who planted it.
Bukhari & Muslim

There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.
Mahatma Gandhi
:: Local fruits ::

Rose apples sound really good! How are they different than say Granny Smith or Washington Red Apples? And I have never had lychee, it looks really interesting. Love you and thanks for these great posts. I love coming over here and feeling like I'm part of your amazing country! Love you.

It's durian season in here. I am totally fat and stuffed with durians. :)

I guess it's fruit season everywhere. There are rambutans and mangosteens in here too but I only got to eat a small quantity of them.

Ms.Unique :: LoL~

Lisa :: Ermm ... they're definitely more juicier. Here's a wikipedia article on it;

Say what??? Sis, you're missing the good stuff!!! You MUST try it! Try sourcing from the Asian stores, preferably go for the fresh ones not the canned lychees. You know you're always invited to this end. :)

Ummi's Blog :: Since I'm not a fan of pomelos ... I'll just shush up. Haha~ Really sis, I don't like playing favourites. If I can eat it, I WILL. :P

Ash Mazelan :: Yeah. I practically have to control myself from eating.

Luckily for me, my uncle has an orchard so that's where we'll get our seasonal supply. :)
