I’ve been quiet, I know. Been having a spot of bother called “work”, saps the life out of ya!
But my gastronomic curiosity (and indulgence) shall prevail… marking exams or no marking!! So I’m back with this post on another fruit certainly worthy of a mention.
On one of my travels abroad, Manila this time, a couple of us got talking about this fruit called Buah Kundang. Colleagues from Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia and Cambodia vividly described the sour young Kundang fruit, and the amazingly sweet and delicious ripe one. Not one to be outdone usually, I felt rather left out this time because I really didn’t know what they were talking about. But I was intrigued. I have never come across it here in Brunei, but I’m almost certain it’s lurking somewhere in someone’s kabun buah. (Incredible too coz nothing edible has ever escaped me!)
So I present to you the very purple Buah Kundang…
It’s a beauty ahh! Well, my uncle is en route to KL as I blog, and in no uncertain terms I asked him to get me Buah Kundang. So I’m really looking forward to that first meeting of the beauty and the parut buncit… it’s a predictable ending.
Until that momentous occasion, it’s back to marking my exam scripts… or maybe football on TV.
(and Man U just won the derby ~ Woohoo!)
