To each her own




Some people are anal about having their steak bloody, some are particular about having soup before anything else while some, for some incomprehensible reason, love their broccoli raw. I guess we all have our little quirks and preferences, and I have my own fair share of them.



For example, I don't like skinny fries. I love my chips fat and potato-ey, chock full of potatoes like MOS burger's fries or KFC's wedges (do they still have these?). On the topic of fries, I also love dipping fries in ice-cream.


I like Weetabix. But get this, I love them dry. I know it sounds gross, and some people even think its is like cardboard - hard, dry and tasteless. But I can finish an entire box on my own sometimes. No milk, no yogurt, nothing at all to soften it.



Finally, I love my fruits soft and absolutely mushy. To the point where the slightest touch can leave an indentation in the fruit. This means I love to age my pears, waiting for the pears to turn from a healthy green to almost pale yellow. I love to watch my bananas turn from a firm, bright yellow fruit to something tender and entirely black. My persimmons also have to be incredibly soft and slushy inside before I'm willing to eat it.



At that point, I can simply slice open the top and scoop the fleshy innards out with a spoon. It becomes gooey and almost like a thick persimmon shake. It's heaven, and a great perk for me is that those expensive persimmons from Japan, which cost about SGD$15 per fruit, will get pushed down to a third of the price when it becomes overripe - that is just about right for me.
