Hi Leona - LOL. No, I didn't carve the watermelon rose - it was on display in Cabramatta during the Moon Cake Festival. Sorry, false advertising :)

If I tried, I wouldn't be able to stop myself from eating that melon halfway through :D

Love the watermelon carving, they are always so amazing. But nothing beats the real floral thing... :)

Stunning photography! Thank you for such a great visual start to the day...

Oh, oh, oh!! I saw the watermelons as well. I was in Bankstown for their Lunar New Year festival.

Beautiful carving! I have seen them in Thailand. Great to hear they have them in cabra!

I wish I had those mad fruit carving skills! I tried to carve a banana once. It was really embarrassingly bad so I ate it.

Thanks for dropping by everyone <3

Hi Belle - I agree :) I think it would be ideal to receive both!

Hi Celia - Thanks very much! I love taking pictures - perhaps slightly more than cooking, but slightly less than eating :)

Hi Sydney Shop Girl - I wish I was aware of the Lunar New Year festival in Bankstown :( Love festivals.

Hi Iron Chef Shellie - indeed!

Hi Ellie - Yeah, I've heard that the Thais are quite passionate about fruit carvings!

Hi Lorraine - Haha, at least the banana wasn't wasted!
