Low lying Bananas tree

On Saturday Jun 26, after my gal attended her friend birthday party. While walking along Yuk Hong Ave, on the road side we saw this low lying bananas tree. It was so low lying that one can easily reach for the bananas.

Even my gal could reach and touch the bananas. Opps ! A grouchy look after a long afternoon playing, good things is she still pose for me ;p hahhaha

My New Toaster Oven & Pizza

My toaster oven end its journey last Sunday morning (20 Jun), when i tried to heat up the Swedish meat ball. My kids were so upset, as they can no longer use the toaster oven on their own. Immediately on Sunday night, I booked my new Philips toaster oven (out of stock). Finally the stock arrived today. Hubby and I quickly rush down Carrefour to pickup.

My Pre n New Love

After cleaning up the toaster oven. My kids reminder me of the pizza, I took out the 9" cheese & tomato pizza from the freezer and started cooking it.

When the pizza is ready, I could see my kids smiles beaming away.

Pomelo Fruit

Spotted this pomelo tree nearby home probably a month ago. Though I've been staying there for many many years, I've never notice it. In fact, this is also the 1st time I could identified a tree from its leaves. (I'm really proud of that, ahem...)

Today, I passed by this tree and saw it's bearing some lovely fruit ~ Pomelo
