Dragonfruit...refreshing, YUMMYAfter a few days of fatty chicken and rice platters I knew I had to find an alternative. Problem solved – Dragonfruit. White, fleshy interior with tiny black seeds, much like a kiwi – refreshing, YUMMY.

Cannonball Tree, East Coast Beach, SingaporeThe very unusual Cannonball Tree Couroupita guianensis – a wonderfully unique flowering fruit tree growing on East Coast Beach, Singapore. The flowers are about 5″ wide and develop in massive 12 foot-long bunches. The fruit is about 8 – 10 inches across, and apparently has a very unpleasant odor. The tree has been regarded as sacred in India for thousands of years, and the bark, leaves and fruit have been used medicinally as a disinfectant; even believed to cure diseases like malaria.
