Momo Chan

This season making fish fish wanna "mo" Momo. Heeee... it actually refers to peach. But in Japanese, it has a very cute name - Momo. Ever heard of Momotaro? Did you know the original story line was not Momotaro came out from a Momo? Instead, it was about how a very old couple that found and ate a "magic momo", and became young 20++ yo handsome guy and pretty lady. That night, the 2 of them was having heavy wind strong rain non-stop. And 10 months later, Momotaro was born. However, as Momotaro is a famous story to teach to kids in primary school, it will be too complicated to explain if the kids ask further and further, so to avoid that, they decided to simplified the story. ;) Now...

I ate a Momo this morning. (Cheh~ it didn't make me turn prettier and younger. -_-") Too bad, it was too soft. I miss the nice momo I had in Yamagata prefecture 2 years ago, when I was travelling with Wai Wai in Tohoku area.

So, let fish fish brings you to the pink pink momo world of 2 years ago. ^_^

Time machine back!!


Ever seen a Momo tree? This... is a Momo tree. The momo on these trees very red, that was actually the first time I see such a red Momo.

Wai Wai and me were too excited. We were really sakai and screamed out loud the first moment we saw large orchard of them. Too excited.

So, we took 30 min just to take the picture of this momo, and try to sniff those nice smell as much as we can. It was one of the nicest smell I have ever had. Cannot eat, smell also good enough liao lar~

See my hand and the Momo? Yes, these Momo in Yamagata super big. It is one of the prefecture with best Momo in Japan. In fact, I love Yamagata. The best Sakuranbo also produced here.

Girls in this area have very fair and smooth skin. Must be the water and these fruits. In fact, Wai Wai and me were the 2 naked ladies with darkest skin when we took bath in Ofuro that time. So embarassing. :P

Ok, something weird here. Have you ever heard of graveyard for Momo?


That day, we were very lucky. We saw the farmers were selling their fresh momo. Without hesitation, we bought one box of it.

Know how much it is?

Super cheap!! It was for 800 yen... not one, but the whole box.

That night, word couldn't explain how we felt after we ate the Momo. *in heaven~*

Woooo~~~ this making me wanna go to Yamagata again liao~ *myak*

Firm and sweet soft and mellow...er ok i can't write but I love peaches...Especially white peaches. Fish Fish thoses peaches look so Awesome. So envy you right now!
I remember My husband and I went to Marysville up in Northern California, and in the backroads we travelled through Several HUGE orchards of peaches in mid July..The Smell was incredible, the peaches HUGE, the air was super sweet and I was so tempted to stop and car and sit in a tree and eat til I was sick! But I box Boxes and Boxes of Peaches two layers for seven dollars, and sat in an air conditioned room and ate til I was sick. LOL it was great...*sigh*
