What Did I Find Today?????
Posted March 30, 2007on:
As I write this there are two, yes TWO durians sitting on my balcony. We went on another fruit run this afternoon and came across a fruit and veg market and found many wonderous delights. Of course mangos, rambutans, jackfruits, papayas. The list goes on. Unfortunately, my digital battery ran out, but I did take pics on my big funky camera for when I set up my website.
Back to the durians. Again cheap, can you guess how much. Bet you can’t – 120 baht for the two!!!! That’s like 4 dollars, 2 pounds and 440 yen. I pay 3000yen for one in Japan.
Another reason to move here.
My Food Today
papaya, banana and pineapple chunks
Salad;tommies, cucumber, lettuce and carrots
Dragonfruit or Pitaya
There are three types of dragonfruit.
*Pink skin, white flesh
*Pink skin, pink flesh
*Yellow skin, white flesh.
As you can see from the pics below, mine was the first type.
It is high in vitamins and fibre, and apparently helps fight colon cancer and diabetes. It helps aid digestion and if consumed frequently helps asthma.
Had a bad headache this morning, lack of sleep, so no yoga today.
After a swim, I put on my sneakers and went for my first jog since getting here. Ran for about 15 minutes on the beach. Running on sand is far from ideal, so I took a gentle pace.
Just don’t ask what I was listening to on my iPod!!
