How much is 100kg of clothes worth?

The bundle below weighs 100 kilograms.

When opened up, we get this amount of clothes...

This 100kg bundle of clothes are second hand clothes taken in from Japan. It has a mix of skirts, blouse, blazers / jackets and pants for both genders (though mostly female clothings) at various conditions ranging from worn-out to barely worn. So in your humble opinion, how much would this bundle of joy worth? I'll let you know the answer in my next post (^^,)

Restaurant City Addiction

Most (if not all) Facebook games runs on the same modus operandi - a never-ending game with the more friends you have playing this game the faster you'll level up. And if you don't have enough friends you add strangers who are also playing the same game. The first never-ending game I've played was Transport Tycoon Deluxe which I later continued playing the Open Sourced version. I do get bored with this game after playing for some time, but once I've stayed away from the game long enough, it feels fun to start playing all over again.
Anyway, currently I'm addicted to Restaurant City and Mob Wars seemed to be "yesterday's" game. It'll be sometime before I get over this addiction and get hooked on to another game.

Fruiting Season - Mangosteen

When you see trucks or vans parked at the road shoulder laden with fruits, you'll know it's that time of year again - fruit season. The first batch of fruits being harvest for sale are usually the mangoesteen followed by durian and then other tropical fruits like star fruits and mangoes. During this season doctors too will have brisk sales due to increasing people falling sick. As much as most western doctors advice people to eat fruits there are some fruits that people should not over eat for one example I know is too much rambutan can cause constipation.
Looking at the heap of mangoesteen for sale, I couldn't help but take some pictures (with permission from the seller) and turn it into wallpaper. Don't ask me how many mangoesteen are there in the picture. But if you have nothing to do, perhaps you can start counting them - and do let me know the numbers! (^^,)
