It's a Big Lemon! No, it's just a yellow pomelo

Back to Chinatown today, and it's the eve of Chinese New Year's eve. (confused? haha)

Pomelos are on sale, lots and lots of it.
The writing says it has 'red meat pomelo', meaning the fruit has red flesh inside.

Now, what is this? Big oversized lemons? No, they are Yellow Pomelos!

I am out of Singapore until next week. Visiting my family for the Chinese New Year.

I shall be back, but meanwhile, I hope that I have access to the Internet to provide you daily updates.

I am fan of your market scenes , fruits are like babies, I prefer living inside this market than among furniture and books.

Happy New Year!!! Great series on Chinatown scenes; got to try those pomelos. Btw, I like to munch on keropoks too.

Pomelo is like a giant grapefruit except the pulps come off the pith and skin very easily. It is mildly sweet and tart.

Tangelo is a cross between tangerine and pomelo.

The yellow shade is so powerful in a wonderfully positive way. Nice shot!
