Cut the top off but retained the cap.
Use a spoon to scoop out the seeds and the fibers.
Place the melon on a deep bowl.
It is very soothing and not overly sweet.

It has been ages since I last went up Fraser's Hill. This is one of the hill resorts in Malaysia.
I remember when I went there once with my classmates. We rented a bungalow and had a good time with the BBQ at night. Another time, went up with the family and kids- but my youngest daugther (who is 2o years now) cannot recall the place- so that shows how long it has been. That's all.
So, when my sister and her husband came back for the wedding, I planned a short trip to Fraser's Hill for them. This is the first trip for my brother-in law up Fraser's Hill. As their trip back this time is just a week and in the midst of the frenzy of the wedding going-on, this would be a perfect getaway to relax. I had booked us at the Silverpark Resort with their current offer on Groupon inclusive of daily buffet and a dinner and studio apartment for 2 for RM135.00.
So before we depart for the resort, we had our breakfast at the Yut Kee Coffee Shop in Jalan Dang Wangi. This shop is now in the 4th generation. White coffee and toast, eggs are the normal fare besides they also offer chicken chop and pork roll. I tried their French Toast - more like bread dipped in eggs batter and pan-fry. The centre was not creamy as I would like it to be but rather dry. But their coffee was good. This place seems very popular with the weekends crowd for breakfast/lunch.
My eldest daughter Esther is a profession dog groomer. After getting her Hotel and Catering degree and working for a short stint with the hotel industry, she quit to do what she loves- handling dogs and cats.
I remember when she was a kid she begged me to get her a pet. So we finally got a cat from SPCA. We were given a dog later by a friend who went overseas and then her collection had grown as 2 more stray dogs joined the family.
She studied for her professional dog grooming certificate and was awarded the Golden Scissor by her Japanese examiner. That's the highest award given by the school. I am glad and happy that she had taken her interest and love for dogs to a new height.
She was headhunted by her Uncle to help him start a pet shop. He is a breeder of those expensive pedigree -pug, papillon, shetland, husky etc. He wanted to venture into dog grooming as well and enlisted Esther's help. She had been very busy helping to set up the shop - taking no off days and working till late doing all the necessary work and I had taken over to "cat/dog-sit".
Well finally, last weekend was the official opening of FOREVER SHINE PETS SOLUTION.
Toto: "I misses my owner Esther but at least I can smell her blanket".
Finally the Day has come for both the young persons. Today they will be united as one.
After the late night, I missed the contingent that went over to fetch the new bride home. However, I am glad to stay behind and helped my sister to get ready the buffet for the friends and relatives that came to witness the wedding.
