FSO: Local Crops and produce.

July 19: Local Crops and Produce

In Singapore, I was given this habanero chilli,
I ate the chilli and germinated the seeds.
I got hundreds of chillis from my two plants.
The plant is gone but I have the photos.
The original chilli came from Mexico,
courtesy from my friend W. on his tours.
I also learnt that to beat this fireball,
sip slowly milk, giving yourself a milky moustache
 or take some yoghurt. It works like magic.
This chilli is one of the best experience
that bonded us together.
We could now be in NZ, USA, Canada, Russia, India,
We laugh when we remembered being burnt
and we all had fun amongst tears.

I gave an couple in their 80s a ride .
They didn't know exactly their address.
We got lost. I stopped by a diary to ask for directions.
To make matters worse,
the dairy owner said there was no such road nearby. 
The woman told me the man feels depressed
 and feels confined at home, and wants to go out.
I was the second person who had taken them home.
The first time, he fell, and someone got ambulance.
They were very grateful, and invited me in, but I couldn't stay.
The driveway is sloppy  and had puddles.
It is not easy to walk.
I held his hand as he walked with a cane.
I saw her chillis, she plucked a whole lot.
 They are about two inches big.
They looked like capsicums to me,
She said they were very hot.
She gave me a whole bag.
They will keep my heart warm on such cold days.
