Pom.

It is red... sometimes reddish orangey... but beautiful. It looks kinda like red apples but the skin is tough. It wears a lil crown and sometimes i think it looks like a christmas tree ornament :D

It taste differently from apples because apples makes crunchy sounds when you bite into them :) But Pom.. poms are just beautiful and full of vitamins.

We saw a couple of Poms (and not pom-pom girls) while we stopped by the fruits marketplace beside the highway. As usual, i needed to pee but before i ran off to pee... the red Poms caught my eye. My eyes must have lighted up instantly. I touched it.. and went off to pee.

When i got back into the car with yummy cups of corn... Stormy gave me my first ever Pom. A red red Pom all for myself... hehehehe.. I must have grinned wide and wider. I was like a little kid who was given her first dolly... or a girl who just got the biggest diamond.. hahahhahaa.. but diamonds never interests me. I won't know where to keep them *LOL*

Pomegranate. Pom for short.

Pomegranates are pretty expensive in Malaysia. I don't know why. One fruit costs about 6 bucks... or more or less... there. Pretty steep for just one fruit.

I do not know what are the miracles of pomegranates but a lot of people are going hoowaah hoowaah about it. You can try and google it. There's loads of stories about the red fruit that wears the crown.

The Pom speaks...

The skin of the pomegranate is very tough. Its quite hard to open the Pom without getting the juices everywhere. Here's how... we found a video on Youtube :p But we haven't tried it on our Pom yet. It is too precious to be eaten. So we hide it in the fridge. *LOL* Have fun watching the video below.



The pomegranate is native to Southwest Asia. It is widely cultivated throughout Afghanistan, Algeria, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Iran, Iraq, India, Pakistan, Syria, Turkey, the drier parts of southeast Asia, Peninsular Malaysia, the East Indies, and tropical Africa. (read more on wikipedia)
