I was at my local korean supermarket today and found a fruit I’d never heard of! Growing up in South East Asia, we were lucky to have all sorts of fruit, both local to the tropics and imported from abroad. So today, I was rather stumped when I came across these tiny grape-like fruit called Kiwi Berries. I’d never heard of it! So i bought a small container, did a little research and discovered that they’re native to Japan, China, Korea and some parts of Russia. They resemble the kiwi fruit both on the inside and in taste too. Apart from the obvious size difference, the outer skin is edible on the kiwi berries, unlike the larger ones. I’m going to have to run out and get another pint! These were gone in a flash! (The bowl can be purchased here.)

I’ve had some Washi tape lying around from our trip to Japan several years ago and felt it was time to put it to some good use! Washi is made from either paper or a gum of a tree, and comes in every shade and pattern you can think of!
I’ve used them to decorate birthday cards or to spruce up some wrapping. But here are some great ideas I found on Pinterest. I think they’re a fabulous way to color code your cables, so your husband isn’t constantly plugging his iPhone into your charger! Ehem….
