Weather has mind of it's own which work on a system we have no real control. Temperature, humidity, atmospheric pressure, wind, and rainfall are the parameters that weather would play around. So yesterday, weather decided to pour rain over Pasir Gudang. It wasn't the heaviest of rainfall, but it helped filling up spaces between soil particles which had been empty and dry for almost three weeks. Earthworms would find their tunnel a lot smoother to slide through. Roots would absorb the much needed source of life into their system, and leaves would paint themselves greener to trigger off heavier photosynthesis. Frogs would croak, serenading the cooler days ahead. Birds in the morning would flutter for long awaited feather-do cum shampoo.
It was Monday 6th of August 2012, that we plucked a ripe markisa / passionfruit. Yesterday which was a week later, the fruit didn't change much, probably a shade darker.

The scooped content of markisa was added with water, stirred and strained. A little bit of sugar and ice cubes were added to bring about another tropical juice. The fragrance is paradise.
