Built on a piece of 1.5 hectare's land, my mum & dad's place in Kuching is spacious enough for anything. My dad made full use of the land with varieties of local fruit trees planted. Hence, fruits plucking is one of our favourite activities when we're back home.
By God's grace, my dad is still very healthy at the age of 78 years old. He does not look like one, and I'm pretty sure that I got this particular gene. Grass mowing, ladder climbing, carpentry and others are his normal activities.
My niece from Singapore was excited seeing the mata kucing (longan), and was more then happy to help.
My 2nd eldest sis, helped my dad to pick up the rambutans.
While some (3rd sis and other nieces) plucked other fruits.
Another niece from Singapore, love citruses.
Papaya tree with lots of fruits, a rare sight for my Singaporean nieces.
Hehehe... I love this fruit, the kedondong. Enak makan begitu sahaja, or serve with sambal kicap... Oooooooo.......
More mata kucing. The fruits were wrapped with newspaper to prevent them from being eaten by bats.
And the result? A table full of vast variety of fruits. There were also starfruit, cocoa, pumello and cempedak.
What's next? Makan lerrr!!!
