I have been eating the delicious Mangosteen fruits all my life. It is nutritious and power packed with rich nutrients like different vitamins. My Thai mother taught me how to use a small knife to cut them open nicely to serve guests. This is a common practice in Thailand where the folks are creative in fruit carving as they often have beautiful fruits and food presentation as offerings to the Gods, Temples and distinguished guests.
It is now the Tropical Fruits Season in Malaysia and I have been eating durians, rambutans and mangosteens to my heart's content. I saw the supermarket selling mangoesteen and bought some home.
I realized that all my friends and relatives here would just use both their palms to press or squash open the fruit to eat. Sometimes the whole pulp would be messed up with juice squirting out. I would take a small knife to cut lightly in a circle to open up.
Tada! It looks better and neat to serve our guests with a fork.
Meanwhile, I have been snacking since last year when the MCO started. I have eaten so much junk food and narrowed down to just sunflower seeds lately. It is more addictive, healthier and not fattening! I have been buying Char Cheer's brand with Cream Flavour which is the top selling brand that has always been snapped up. Finally I decided to track down online and found only Shoppee sells them! So my big package arrived!
Look at my 10 huge packets of Sunflower seeds! Yums! I have lost a total of 18 kgs since the MCO started in early 2020.
