Highland Nuts

A few weekends ago, my sister bought some nuts at the market from the native people. According to the seller, these nuts only grow in the wild on the highlands. The name is repi.

It was the first time I have seen and tasted such kind of nuts. The shells are very thin and brittle, so they are very easy to break just but hand. The thin membrane draping the nut is a bit hairy but can be eaten together with the nut.

The colour of the nuts is greenish white. They taste like green peas mixed with walnuts, quite an interesting taste. The texture is chewy rather than crunchy and they come with a bitter after taste. They are something that you should try if you happen to see them in the markets around Kuching.

Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Fitri

Today is the first day for the Muslims to celebrate their most important festive season after a month of fasting. Malaysia has a very large population of Muslims and Singapore has a considerably large Muslim community too.

I would like to share some of my photos taken in Singapore last month where there were already decorations on the streets to mark the arrival of the festive season.





To all the Muslims in Malaysia and Singapore, "Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Fitri", and to the rest of the Muslims in the world, "Eid Mubarak".
