Out From Kaffir Lime Tree



      

        Way back before, we planted lots of citrus "Hystrix" or known as kaffir lime in our vacant lot. For several years, we already tasted its fruit thru mixing its juice with our soy sauce especially when we eat chicken, fish or beef. Indeed, this kaffir lime serve as a good appetizer to us. As of now, only few kaffir lime trees left in our backyard since we cut it down and use the vacant lot. This container is just one of the result of the kaffir lime trees that been cut down. We turn those trees into something useable that we keep even for a lifetime....Whola! We just choose the right design in making out this container along with the others....
