The Fruit Season is here!

I have a reason to celebrate. It’s the fruit season!

Rambutan season is here

Just open the old door on the left side of my parents’ house and you will see two Rambutan trees. One is so low to the ground and one is at the back there where the monkeys party like an open Zoo.

So low to the ground that my 4-year-old nephew can easily pick a fruit off of its branch.

Our 'harvest" for the day

Rambutan is a tropical fruit which got its name from the Malay word "rambut".

Rambut = hair (due the hairy look)

Therefore, “rambutan’ means “the Hairy fruit”.

A candid shot of my nephew when I called his name.

Look at that cheeky smile!

I'm grateful to the Almighty that my nephews still have the chance to live where trees are like friendly arms that hug us and keep us safe.
