So happened, a Chinese TV programme features a male TCS actor in Thailand and I watched a segment about how to choose a ripe pomelo :smile:

Press the bottom, it should be soft, depressable. Look out for yellowish outer skin.

The Sunny brand pomelo not cheap right?

I once bou a Vietnam pink pomelo, I feel it is more tasty than the Malaysian one.

is it pornsak? 食在好源头?

I like this Programme. Very informative and gives me ideas about cooking and a bit on life.

oh.... Ok mah. Just use those water in the basin to water plant or wash toilet bowl!

No water is wasted, unless u let it run away without giving it a second life.

Water used for washing rice is good for the plants.

Water is one of the most valuable resources on earth. All the more so for small countries like Singapore which don't have water as a natural resouce. From today onwards, think about what you can do to give water a second life. :) no spanking required. If anyone has ideas of how we can give water a third life, do share!

Yes, water from washing rice is not just good for plants, also good for our skin! On days when I don't need to top my my watering cans, I use the water from washing rice to rinse my face. :)

Jennifer, just sharing, there was a time in primary school that DS was very skinny. He bought very little food during recess because he wanted to save his pocket money to buy some cards. I think at that time his pocket money was $1 per day. So, I told him that if he spends at least 80 cents in food, then I will remunerate him with an extra $1 to spend in anything he likes. This may sound strange because he will get more money by eating more. He was happy because he didn't have to stay hungry in school and at the same time he got more money to buy whatever he likes. If he spends less than 80 cents, then he won't get the extra $1.

It is kinda kick off his appetite. The scheme stopped when he asked for $2 pocket money per day because he said $1 is no longer enough.

Just sharing. Ah boy is in secondary school now so I don't know whether this scheme will work or not as teenagers' brain is more complex than when they were in primary school.

Anyway, :snuggles: to you.
