Green isn’t always envy…

It was that same Friday afternoon that I’d risen rather grumpily  from my slumber thinking I was late for my Rojak appointment with Kucang, when after all the fuss he texted saying he’d be 45 min late!  I was already well on my way to my car in the drive way, when I could’ve been still in some strange land being chased by large and green amoeba-like beings wearing Scottish tartan!! Not that I enjoy that kind of subconscious plays during my sleep, but I wouldn’t have mind the extra time shut-eye.

So, there I was grumbling to my sleep-deprived self when as I looked up, I screamed “What the Dodol..?!!” ~  nearly fell on my back like a turtle attempting a breakdance… well I exaggerate, but you get the idea. Here’s what I saw…dsc00463

Thankfully, these weren’t those green jelly monsters whose acquaintance I’d made in my dream just 20 minutes previously, but large unripe Buah Sukun  or Breadfruit!  I swear I walk through this patch everyday, but had never realized these green balls of goodness were just above my head.

Breadfruit is great lightly fried in butter.  I reckon it may even be awesome mashed. Hmm. That’s a thought!

So green isn’t always the colour of envy, it could quite simply be a buah sukun waiting to plop onto your unsuspecting little head, and turn it black and blue.
