A little bundle of edible love from Gannie.
Ignore the M&Ms in that pic, please. Cos we really
need to focus on the more important things in life:
LIKE CHERRIESSSS!!! =D =D =D
*cartwheels all around*
OMG, would you look at that???
Self-picked red and "white" cherries. <3
Now, to give you some history to dilute
the randomness of all this cherry talk:
You see, I blogged about indulging in red cherries one day last year. Gannie immediately comment-replied and What'sApp!-ed me to say that I should actually try eating white cherries instead cos she kinda likes them better. To that I said, "White what!?" Or something like that cos, like, I've never even heard of white cherries before, much less have a preference for them over the more common red ones we usually get here. Haha. So, she very kindly offered to get me some to try for myself since she recently went cherry picking over the Summer in Australia.
So... here were are, back with
the gift bag from Adelaide.
Those two items actually flew all the way from Adelaide to Singapore with Gannie, stayed in Singapore for awhile, then flew from Singapore to Penang with Gannie's mom. So it's really come a long way to get to me. So touched at the effort put in by an old friend to make sure her friend isn't a cherry sua ku and knows what white cherries look and taste like. And they look like this:
White cherries up front.
Though let's not be kacang-lupakan-kulit
and forget the red cherries that have
made my life so sweet thus far. =p
Familiar red cherries!
They're different on the outside
...and to my surprise, on the inside, too!
The insides of a white cherry on the left, and a red cherry on the right.
Every cherry counts.
Gosh, I can't believe I'm 27+ and I've never even seen a Cherry Tree before. Sigh. But that will change. Because I WILL go cherry picking someday. You mark my words. It's already on my travel to-do list! Right behind "Seeing Snow". T_T
Thanks for the cherries (and the M&Ms).
It means the world to me that you'd go through
the trouble of flying those 20 precious cherries
all the way from Australia to me. Let's go
cherry picking together one day. Someday. =)
