random snapshot 5/2016

We plough the fields, and scatter the good seed on the land;
But it is fed and watered by God’s almighty hand:
He sends the snow in winter, the warmth to swell the grain,
The breezes and the sunshine, and soft refreshing rain.

Taken from an old hymn “We plough the fields and scatter” by Jane Montgomery Campbell (1817–1878), translated from a German poem by poet Matthias Claudius.

spondias dulcis, common name ambarella (番橄榄) but locally they are called kedondong/山榄, a tropical tree with edible fruit containing a fibrous pit

the edible flesh is crunchy and sour and the locals pickle it and eat it as an appetiser or blend it and make it into a refreshing and thirst-quenching icy drink!
