    The asawa reports that round fruits on New Year’s Eve represent coins for each month. Wearing polka dots seems to achieve the same effect. Natch, if you are a polka dot 12 round fruit eating peep then I assume double coins for each month.

    What beats me is the lengths she will go scouring every Bleddy prutas stall between Lazi n Larena in the search for such stuff. Added tradition; everyone is supposed to eat all of the 12 fruits or at least take a bite of them all. Last time I came back with a Watermelon I gave them all the squits: the d*mn thing was imported from somewhere and gave kids, adults n near hospitalisation. Avoid.

    I can recommend the Indian street food idea that is Mango Cream. The kids love it beyond their usual mango float. But that’s not round, as a fruit. Only in presentation. Dollop on a round Plato, sprinkle with pistachios, toasted almonds and a well aimed dollop of ice cream, ensure a cardamom is popped as you prepare the pulp and crush the ice. Ought to be selling them on the Boulevard in normal times in Duma.

    Depression: goals n values. Who you were before this thing came along. Try to reconnect with those. Depression is an inward type of problem, plenty of good information when you look outwards. Give it a go. P14k per hourly consult if you get stuck.

    cheers,

    C

    • Relax.
    Because it's tradition! So bl...y what? I am married to a Pinay for 30+ years and she has not failed one year! And...?? When still living abroad, our greengrocer was aware and made a large basket with as many different round fruits for us as he could find (some years over 20!). He was happy, and (more importantly) she was happy. Strange? Maybe, but no more strange than slaughtering a whole bunch of turkeys for a particular day because that's allegedly tradition...

    Woke up nursing a bottle of Emperador (empty I might add). The secret is coming down slowly so as not to get a hangover. Happy 2021 to all.

    The economy is so bad that......

    My neighbour got a pre-declined credit card in the post.

    CEO's are now playing miniature golf.

    Exxon-Mobil laid off 25 Congressmen.

    I saw a Mormon with only one wife.

    McDonald's is selling the 1/4 ouncer.

    Angelina Jolie adopted a child from America.

    Parents in Beverly Hills fired their nannies and learned their kids names.

    A truck load of Americans was caught sneaking into Mexico.

    A picture is now only worth 200 words.

    The Treasure Island casino in Las Vegas is now managed by Somali pirates.

    And finally.......

    I was so depressed last night thinking about the economy, wars, jobs, my savings, Social Security, retirement funds etc, I called the Suicide Hotline. I got a call centre in Afghanistan, and when I told them I was suicidal, they got all excited and asked if I could drive a truck!
