My boss always buys a pineapple to be placed on the altar every first and fifteen day of the Chinese calendar. After a few days, it will ripen. After which I will throw away. Not anymore since I knew how to cut it easily. Read my post here on how to cut it.

I will keep it in the fridge first. When I'm free, I will cut it and keep it in the tupperware. I can finish it in two days.

But this time I finished it in a day.

Firstly, I had some left-over chilly prawns. Heated them up and poured them over the pineapple. That's my lunch.

The boss bought fried rice for me so I had early dinner at the shop. When I came back in the evening for a short break, I poured the left-over rojak sauce over the pineapple. That's my dessert for the day.

The pineapple was sweet and it tasted heavenly with the sauce. 

Do you like pineapples?

Japan sightseeing (4)

9 June 15: Asakusa Kannon Temple
Asakusa Kannon Temple (also called Sensoji) is the oldest temple in Tokyo. Its history goes back to 7th century. The legend says that in 628 two local fishermen caught a tiny statue in their net while fishing in the nearby Sumida river. The head of their village recognized it as the image of Kannon, Goddess of mercy. So they built a temple to enshrine and worship the Kannon statue.

Love its bonsai tree
