Musk Melon =DDDDD


the piece de resistance of Chris' birthday dinner was the fruit =) since it was chris' birthday and the melons were cheaper than usual ($49 each as opposed to $60+ to $80+), i bought one for the dinner... when i cut it up, ah ma's domestic helper went WAH! it was so juicy there was a well of juice with the seeds... this fruit had to be served on an individual plate, one wedge per person (yes, so 7 plates) to do it justice...

my father-in-law slurped it up...

FIL: wa, v v sweet...
me: *ah bu then* hehe
MIL: 很甜 (v sweet) ^^

in the kitchen, my mum-in-law asked if it's the 很貴的日本(v expensive Japanese) melon and asked the price... haha... i told her the price and she was shocked... but she said it's ok since it's chris' birthday and he likes to eat, phew...

but anw, when we eat it in japan, one wedge costs about 350 JPY which is about $5 also... so $49 for one big melon is reasonable la... once a year, for chris birthday.

according to my ex-japanese teacher Kasagawa sensei, after you finish it, you can rinse the skin and rub it all over your face and your complexion will be v smooth... hm...
