I visited an Asian store last week and found the Asian persimmons on sale for $2 per pound. It was kind of pricey for me and I bought 10 for $6. I went back again today, and it was for less this time at $1.75 per pound. It’s not a bad price since we don’t have anymore in NC that I’m aware of since it is so late into the season. These came from sunny Florida.
This is what it looks like if you cut it in half. It is considered lucky if it looks like a star, this one looks like rays of sunshine.
I also bought some green papayas, these are also from Florida. I made Tum Mak Houng (Spicy Papaya salad) for dinner and ate it with pork rind and rice.
I’ve decided to take up a challenge from lady0fdarkness, she posted a photo of her desk and has asked to see mine. Here is my desk on a good day. On my left hand side and on the shelves are stacks of Thai magazines, and in the green box are my camera gears and booklets. I’m a desktop person and only surf the web when I’m on my computer at home or at work. As you can see that iPod, iPad or iPhone is not for me, I still read books, magazines, and surf the web on a normal computer. I wonder now if a desk tells a lot about a person.
Updated photos 11-16-2011, I couldn’t get a clear shot of the statues last night.
