About Me

I have done a lot of things in my life and have also worked in many different jobs to make a living and to experience life. This blog is just some of my musings, sometimes funny, sometimes inspirational, sometimes sad, sometimes angry, sometimes simple but all the time, it's just me.

Tired of round fruits

Buddha shaped pears are seen in an orchard in Weixian county, Hebei province September 10, 2009.

Hao Xianzhang, a local farmer, spent six years to perfect the process by growing the pears inside moulds, local media reported.

The pears cost around 50 yuan or USD7.32 each.

In Japan, farmers of the Zentsuji region found a way to grow cubic watermelons, by growing the fruits in glass boxes and letting them naturally assume the shape of the receptacle.

The square shape is designed to make the melons easier to stack and store, but the square watermelons are often very expensive.

Each square watermelon costs 10000 yen, the equivalent of about USD82.

Personally, I am not tired of round fruits. Plus a 28 ringgit pear or a 240 ringgit watermelon ain't gonna taste any sweeter than a 1 ringgit pear or a 3 ringgit watermelon.

Take care and be well.
