Buddha's Hand Lime

A new miniature citrus has come to town during the recent Chinese New Year.

Limes and oranges are auspicious plants to have in Chinese homes during the Chinese New Year. And this Buddha's hand lime is even more auspicious. Furthermore the fragrance from the fruit can perfume the living room.

Some recipes for the rind of the fruit can be found on line. Many supermarkets in the US andAustralia are now selling the fruits for the rind. The fruit does not have any juice.

To many Buddhists, this decorative plant is spiritual and auspicious at the same time. 2 in 1 !! But at a price of RM`150, it is indeed quite an expensive plant. But it is definitely cheaper than a bonzai. However if it brings peace and harmony to the family, why not?

Think of not having too rich a meal and you can instead bring this plant home.

What I didn't know was how I would get all of what I wanted in just six hours. Also, by having a radio internship in your resume, there is a better chance for you to become a DJ when you apply for a job in any radio station in the nation. Even today, I go big game hunting and all this, and the more dangerous something is, the happier I am.
