Durian season is back .
I saw my friends indulging in it .
in the office !
kao lat lor
to those who loves durian
=) good for you.. eat all you want. but remember drink more water
to those who are like me
neither hate nor like durian
well what can I say?
we can indulge in mangoesteen a.k.a manggis
Manggis is a tropical fruit which is packed with antioxidant
which means... it is good for your skin !
i wanna call it Asian Berry haha
that is why when ever durian season is here
you can actually see me squatting hovering over a dustbin eating manggis
Don't ask me why,
I just felt this position makes me enjoy my manggis more
Anyway , just yesterday my friend came to visit me
the moment she enters the front gate she was like
" what are you doing?"
I turned over and said
"manggis, want or not?"
for some weird reason she looked rather reluctant but joint me squatting there still.
as the rate I was eating was similar like a hungry ghost I hardly took notice at what shes doing
so by the time I turned over I noticed there was precious manggis juices all round the area.
Only then I knew , the reason why she was reluctant was because she don't really know the correct technique in opening up a manggis hahaha
I was like her also few years back, till I saw a How To : Eat Mangoesteen tutorial online
so let me teach you step by step alright?
So we start off with a manggis, turn it around so you will see this flower
Place your thumb over the 'flower'
and press it so that it creates a dent like so
after that once you open it
you'll be presented with a nice perfect , mess free mangis
now lets practice again.
=) now that you learnt how to open a manggis
you can start nom nom nom away ler =)
