Inflation is a worldwide phenomenon now. You may feel shitty about it, but the reality is that you have got to to live with it. As Pak Lah pointed out of late, Malaysian consumers have to learn to outsmart the worsening inflation.
Yian has been ardent believer of home-gardening. She agreed whole-heartedly with Pak Lah on being smart consumers to stand up to spiralling prices. "Home-gardening is not only environment-friendly, it beats inflation in the present circumstances," she shared with me on numerous occasions. As such, Yian has been making every little effort not to let the backyard lie idle.
Three years ago, we came across a buah nona-like fruit at the market. We bought to try out and found it luscious. Yian then wasted no seeds for planting - and, here they are - three fully grown fruit-bearing trees.
Yian is proud of her home-grown organic fruits. Yes, they are organic in the strictest sense, with no chemical fertilisers being used in the growing.
But what has been curious in our minds is the name of the fruit.
Please enlighten us if you are knowledgable about this buah nona-like fruit.
