Photo of the day, #260

Hint: it grows on trees
Happy Friday! The weekend forecast here is looking great. It's supposed to be nice and sunny!


Today's thingamajig might be a difficult one, especially if you aren't Asian. But even if you aren't Asian, you might have seen them in the stores.  If you can find them , they can be sold fresh or dried. I prefer fresh, but the dried version is still pretty good. China is a major producer of this thingamajig. And maybe for this reason alone, I should move to China. I love these thingamajigs! They are also grown in Korea, Japan, and Brazil. What is it?

    Maybe if you started using Alex Gaskarth or Brendon Urie for your mystery men I'd be more tempted to stop by.

  8. Well I was going to say Acorn but I doubt that would be considered difficult..

    Other than an acorn, it looks like a "pee wah" which is the local name we use. I unfortunately don't know the scientific name for it.

    Peewah Peewah is a member of the palm (palmaceae) family. Two of its cousins are the gru gru and gri gri. (Google reference)
