Searching For King Size Pomeloes.

3 days before the Chinese New Year 2016, I was on a mission to search for king size pomeloes. Hubby received a phone call the night before and received this mission. But he was busy so the mission was passed to me.
 The next day after having finished all my chores, I was ready to set out on this mission.
 I am always looking at the sky whenever I have clothes out in the sun for drying. From the look of the clouds, I pushed my clothes hanger on wheels to under my porch, just in case.
 Before the mission, I had breakfast with a friend. We had pumpkin boiled with barley drink and my friend ordered a pau or a steamed bun. I think the filling is red bean paste.
 My friend ordered the wanton mee, topped with some minced meat together with a bowl of wanton in soup.
 And I ordered this tasty Hokkien mee (prawn mee).
After breakfast, we set out on our mission.
This is one of the stalls we went to. They do not have king size pomeloes.
Took a snapshot of these pomeloes, sent and wait for reply.
My phone rang. "Not big enough!" said the caller.
The king size ones have all been sold and left only the average size.
Our mission was then cancelled.
We didn't leave empty handed after going all the way to Tambun town. We ended up each buying 2 small pomeloes at RM6.00 each. We love pomeloes so we don't mind paying a little more for the festive price. Normal times the price will be cheaper.
This is the sweet pomelo. I love the sweet sour ones too.
This one has smaller sacs. Not as juicy as we expected.
After eating all the deep fried Chinese New Year goodies, it will be good to eat more fruits to cool down the body. Many have complained of sore throat and cough.

If you obey all of my commandments,

I will give you regular rains,

and the land will yield bumper crops,

and the trees will be loaded with fruit long after the normal time!

(Leviticus 26:3-5, TLB)

    1. Usually we don't buy the king size ones because the skin will be very thick. We also go for the average size.

  8. I prefer sweet and sour pomeloes to sweet ones. Good that you bought some pomeloes to make it worth while for your trip there as king sized pomeloes were all sold out.

  23. I bought a small pamelo this year. For display only. And it cost more than RM10! Pamelo is not cheap nowadays.

    Happy Chap Goh Mei!

  24. I would have thought the king sized one might have had less flavour.

    1. It is true. Normally we will never go for the king sized ones unless it is for a special purpose e.g. for prayer.

  26. Not surprising that the mission was given to you! You're in the best place to look for pomelos. I do like the reddish sour ones too.

    1. Stacy, it so happened the mission was given a bit late, too near CNY because most of them have been sold.
