Rascal #2's art teacher in school told the class that there will be a session on drawing and painting of fruits. Every pupil was to bring their own fruits to school. So I drove her to the nearby mini market and asked her to choose the fruits that she'd like to draw. As expected, this rascal who likes to do extraordinary things chose only exotic fruits, not to mention expensive ones! She wanted to choose a bunch of grapes which cost over RM10 and mangoes which are expensive too. I said NO! I knew that when the fruits returned home after the painting session, they would surely be inedible anymore with dents and splashes of paints on them.
So I bought her a pineapple (RM5.90) and a red dragon fruit (RM4) as these are not the run-of-the-mill apples and oranges and I think it would be fun to draw them. She had a great time drawing and painting the exotic fruits in school and thankfully the fruits were still in good shape when she brought them home. The red dragon fruit had dents every where though, of which I immediately cut it up for her to eat. And the pineapple had splashes of pink paint on it but thankfully no dents or holes and can still be cut up to be eaten :D
