Life of a Wallflower Part 5 – #100HappyDays Challenge

It has been awhile since I gave you a little peek into my life so here it is. =)

My sister, cousin, and I decided that we would participate in the 100 days of happiness challenge. As of yesterday. You can find more about it at http://100happydays.com/. Basically, they’re challenging us to find one happy moment in life every single day for 100 days. You document those moments with a photo and #100happydays. In the end, you’ll have at least a hundred photos of the little things that make you happy. Are you up for the challenge?

The little things in life?

I’m excited for summer. I seriously cannot wait, as you probably noticed in my Iced Lychee Mint Green Tea with Strawberries post. Every time I go to the supermarket, I look to see what fruits are being sold. I see the first peaches. That’s why I’m waiting for.

But, in the meantime, here are a few exotic fruits that are in season, and I’m obsessed over.

Mini Mangoes. I snapped this photo while at the supermarket. The lighting is awful, I know. lol. But aren’t the mini mangoes so cute? They’re almost double the price of the larger mangoes. Isn’t that crazy?

Jack fruit. I love these, but it is such a pain to remove the fruit. It is extremely sticky. We had to wear disposable gloves and grease the gloves with vegetable oil to remove the fruit. Was it worth it? Yes! If you havent’t tried this fruit, and would like to, I’d recommend buying the frozen one first. It’s slightly cheaper and in smaller quantity.

Durian. It’s a love it or hate it kind of fruit. If you’ve been around this fruit, you know what I’m talking about. It’s infamous. Can you believe that these grow on trees?

I just wanted to share some little “happy” moments with you. Every single day is filled with its up and downs. But it’s up to us to see the bright side of things. My happy moments will probably revolve around food. I can already see it…

What did we learn about me today? I love exotic fruits. lol.

Until next post.

    One tip for eating jackfruit is just to use your hands and dip them in a bucket of raw rice for 10 minutes afterwards. The rice will strip away all of the tree sap that make your hands sticky.
