you know i’m on perpetual hunger mode, but it’s worse now because i have nothing to do except to watch tv while stuck in my room. everybody knows what goes best with doing nothing but watching tv – binge eating! so yesterday, like a thief in the night, i “escaped” outside to check out our ref’s content and to get all the food that i can lay my hands on. i saw some leftover leche flan so i treated myself to some, and i also saw an unripe mango. prudence and past experience had taught me not to mix milk and sour food in my tummy so i left the mango for another day (which is today). it wasn’t as crunchy as i wanted it (maybe because it was almost going ripe) but it was still good nonetheless. sour-sweet-salty-spicy (with the dizon’s farm bagoong). i bet you’re now salivating 😀
still, there’s nothing like the indian mangoes in our backyard (too bad they’re off season). they don’t need any salt or bagoong. they’re tart and sweet at the same time. however, my personal favorite are those sold by the vendors in burnham park in baguio. until now those are the best indian mangoes i’ve tasted in my life. maybe because they’re seasoned with great childhood memories as well.
can you almost taste this? 😛
