The power of advertising! Yesterday I read Sonia's post on the Zespri kiwifruit special session for bloggers and media. I quite enjoyed reading about the activities and had a good laugh at a photo of Quay Po attempting the pole (apologies Quay Po, I just couldn't help it :D).
Now, I am not much of a fruit person. I have to be coerced to eat some fruit. I admit that the only fruits that I actually buy and eat are pineapples and unripe mangoes which I use in kerabu or rojak. I don't eat them as you normally eat fruits.
Somehow that kiwifruit post implanted something in my mind especially when I saw a photo of The Sweet Spot preparing the kiwifruit, glass noodle and chicken salad. It looked really delicious and I started craving for a salad with kiwifruit.
So when I went grocery shopping today, I saw the Zespri kiwifruits and promptly picked up a packet. I also bought my salad ingredients.
