Buah Cinta

Those who frequent Cameron Highlands will be familiar with this fruit, Tamarillo, but known as Buah Cinta or Love Fruit (or Lover's Fruit?) in Malaysia.

I'm still wondering why is it called Buah Cinta? The fruit is kinda sourish with tinge of sweetness. Does that means.. Love is supposed to be Sour? *Ocipala*. LOL

fibrate said...

I've never seen this fruit before!

Doreen said...

It's called buah cinta because when you fall in love right, you easily get jealous mah, and when you are jealous, you feel sort of sour mah.

Love must have sweet, sour, bitter, spicy, then only it can be considered as love mah, not meh? :D

Chev said...

fibrate,
*Piak fibrate again*

Since u never eat Buah Cinta before, I wonder if u ever tasted the followings when u visited Cameron Highlands in the past :

~ Cameron Apples (which taste like honey dew rather than apple)

~ gigantic Cameron sweet corn (which can be eaten raw and it's sweet. RM 10 for 2 to 3 gigantic sweet corn)

~ Cherry tomatoes (if u didn't taste this, then really have to piak u kaw kaw liao) :P

Chev said...

berberboo,
Hahha, I wonder who is the fella who came up with this name :)

Do look out for it if u visit Cameron Highlands in the future. It's available in other countries too such as Indonesia etc. I happened to come across this fruit two weeks ago in Penang, hence I bought it :)

day dreamer,
Wah wah wah...
Since when Love become so Tasty?
Err... u made me hungry again by describing all the taste, which reminds me of FOOD !!

LOL

fibrate said...

*all dressed up in chain mail*
What apples? What corn? Tomatoes I know - eat them like junk food.

Jason Chan said...

ah! i remember the very sweet punya corn.. eat raw, eat chill... very nice, very sweet... oops, my keyboard is wet!

Chev said...

Must piak Fibrate for not knowing the Cameron sweet corns. LOL

I never know we can eat the raw corn till i tasted the cameron sweet corn. Wah... So sweet and so yummy :D
