We went to MacRithie for macro photo session. Hop on bus 166 we passed agriculture shops not far from the parking lot. We amazed for the ocean of tangerine trees and fruits that so abundant. Mark thought that was an artificial thingys. I did’t believe him, so here’s the pictures (pic 1)

We just realised that Chinese New Year will coming soon (end of January). Chinese ethnic celebrate Lunar New Year with foods that contains many symbol. Such as :

Tangerines and oranges are passed out freely during Chinese New Year as the words for tangerine and orange sound like luck and wealth, respectively. From : About.com

We also found funny fruit (not sure this is edible or not). The shop sell a bunch of stem with fruit only without leaves (pict2). After searching we found the common name is Nipple Fruit (Solanum Mammosum) symbolize abundance.
