Compared to other fruits, avocadoes are expensive here. One fruit would normally cost RM4.99. They used to cost a lot cheaper. Over the weekend, I was surprised to see them at RM1.59. I couldn't pass this up, so I bought more than usual. I like avocadoes ripe, so I'm waiting anxiously for them to ripen before they go into the fridge and ready for digging in.
One other local fruit I enjoy is mangoes. About a month or so ago, there were many different types of mangoes in the supermarkets and all at just RM0.39 per 100gm. Even though we grow mangoes here in Malaysia, we also import them from Thailand and India just like we import durians from Thailand even though we have all the delicious durian strains here.
Mangoes are sweet and delicious but it's best to eat them in moderation as like most tropical fruits, any excess will cause heatiness (not to be confused with being in heat though. LOL!) Your throat would act up as a result. You get a sore throat, that is.
This week's personality quiz is about tropical fruits and it says I am an Avocado. What a strange coincidence. What tropical fruit are you?
