Test of Courage


“No man in the world has more courage than the man who can stop after eating one peanut.”

Purple Eggs, Anyone?


(Purple eggs sold side by side with normal eggs in a market in the Philippines.)

They weren’t laid by some exotic bird. These are actually salted duck eggs. A popular preparation method involves dipping and curing the eggs in a mixture of clay, salt and water for two weeks.

The salted eggs are then cleaned and boiled, and sold in the market pre-cooked. They are colored purple to distinguish them from  normal raw eggs.

Traditionally consumed for breakfast, they have apparently found their way into Southeast Asian recipes and even desserts!

Not that they were wanting attention to begin with!

A Different Take on the Lowly Rambutan

The rains have come, and so have the fruits. This year, the rambutans are already bearing fruit!

Fresh from the tree, to the plate, to the… lens?


Rambutan, like most tropical fruits, is eaten by opening/peeling the skin, hence it can be eaten fresh.


These look like eggs in a nest… or aliens waiting to hatch…


Who thought rambutan could be so… wet? No wonder ants like them!


As kids we were told not to play with our food — but who listened anyway? 🙂

I better get to them before the ants do!
