During the ongoing hibernation period most closely associated with the northern hemisphere’s perpetual freeze-thaw-refreeze, certain items have been sighted throughout the abode.
These objects of curiosity might not generally considered to be of particularly high value; however, they comprise a set of rather unexpected discoveries, more tropical than winter-like in nature, and hence would qualify, in the midst of the Millenial Ice Age, as a collection of geographically and climatologically illogical (let alone incongruous) finds.
I speak, of course, of the unseasonal appearance of the species better known as fructus tropicalis:Indeed, the rarest of these finds have been known to appear (for example, on a fellow gastronome’s plate just the other evening), in all their tropical splendor, even while snowflakes fall gently outside…
An odd find indeed: The Mighty, Hairy, Prickly, Juicy Rambutan. With eyes closed, I can almost see a bunch hanging from the trees outside, ripe and ready for picking…
I’d never even heard of it. Now I’m going to be looking for it
Good luck.. and selamat makan (for when you find it)! It’s a mouth-watering treat.
