Could I have Some Fresh Coconut Juice Please?
These pictures were taken at Suva's Market, the largest in the retail produce market in the South Pacific. Suva is the capital of Fiji. The coconuts were so cheap, they were almost giving them away.

Daily weight loss, weightwatchers and diet notes:
My Second day on Weightwatchers was a little more tricky. On Thursday Nights I attend Tante Marie Cooking School where we cook a mass of delicious mediterranean food and then consume it. The dishes we make are irresistable, like the classic Zuni Chicken Salad that I created last night. I only consumed 7 out of 22 of my points during the day, leaving me 15 for the evening. When it came to dinner time, I used the WW method for coping with buffets: Take a little of everything, but make sure nothing on your plate is touching. This is a good way to refrain from taking too much. I had eight spoonfuls of food on my plate and I guestimated their value at an average 3 points each, total 24 points. Then I had a small dessert which I guessed at 6 points. Instead of drinking wine as usual, I stuck to water. Total damage 30 points. Obviously 30 is double my 15 available points. What is she doing, you are wondering? Well, WW gives you 35 extra points a week to use on treats. So, now I have used 15 of them and still have 20 left.
