IT'S THE GREAT PUMPKIN ASIA!
Do you know how hard it is to find a pumpkin in Asia? It ain't easy! I searched three different traditional markets. Braved aunties chopping the heads off live chickens... waded through puddles of muck and crates of rotting cabbage... sidestepped countless hissing cockroaches... and rubbed elbows with hanging carcasses of goat meat covered in flies...you know, a typical Wednesday. All for the pleasure of cutting a Jack-O-Lantern up and dumping its guts on my living room floor.
Just so you know...we're holding down the fort on this end. Humbly, for sure. Flaming pumpkins beware! Ichabod Crane... I'm talking to you.
