Sept. 17, 2007 update:

my free podcast host Rizzn.net has ceased to exist since 2005, and I lost the

original files, so the audio podcast file in this post is forever gone, i guess.

I'm so glad you're back!
One comment about the fruit 柚子, I think we call it Pamelo in Malaysia. It'a huge citrus fruit. And yes, I used to put it on my head like a helmet when I was a kid.
Nice podcast. Yep.. I agree with the last comment. I think the shaddock is an old translation. Everyone I know in Taiwan calls it a pomelo
It just goes to show you...
If your a cute little kid, you can wear anything.

I love that picture of those little girls. Reminds me of my niece.

Gem, Do you have any pictures of yourself with fruit on your head??

HaHaHa... Just kidding :)
