Fruit Art

I love every kind of fruit, except probably avocado and durians! One of my absolute favourite is stone fruit but it's such a luxury here in Malaysia! I was hoping our trip to Sydney would coincide with the stone fruit season but unfortunately that's only towards the end of the year.

Strawberries were in season though and we sure ate our fill while we were there!

We stopped in Goulburn enroute to Canberra and we were in luck! Right opposite the tourist information centre was a quaint little country market which was just starting to come to live. I bought these luscious-looking strawberry from a stall selling freshly picked farm strawberries. And what a treat they were! Each one was huge, brilliant red, deliciously sweet and juicy with juices that stained our fingers pink as we ate them. Strawberries don't rank too high on my list of favourites but this lot of lovelies pushed it up a notch on the list!

This was dessert on one of our nights there. Feeling bored, I decided to create a nice-looking dessert with oranges and strawberries. The cold navel oranges were so sweet and juicy. Luckily we have similar ones here in the pasar malam!

And finally, one more shot cos I so loved how they looked! :) Thanks to my photographer!
