Hi there! I am back from a super quick trip home! I’m enjoying the ginormous green mango my friend, Benj, gave us after our road trip to Batangas for a beach wedding. It’s grown in his own home, its organic and it’s as big as my face literally haha! (Click here to see proof!) Glad I bought some Bagoong (A Filipino shrimp paste condiment) in Manila to go with it. It’s how we traditionally eat green mangoes – the salty shrimps is the perfect contrast to the sour tangy taste of the mango! YUUUUUM!
Trips home are always tiring and harassing (but worth it) because we maximize every waking minute for check ups, spending time with family & friends. So now I am kicking back & relaxing as I am feeling under the weather.
That’s a tinee-tiny part of the mango and I was satisfied already! I had it with Dizon Bagoong which is sweeter that what I’m used to. I wish I also bought Barrio Fiesta Bagoong – I think I prefer it’s level of saltiness!
With a small portion of that massive mango + Bagoong while reading my Smile Magazines (you can keep them when you ride on Cebu Pacific Planes). It’s a great way for me to remember all those beach vacations that I had a plenty when I was based in Manila. (I swear I feel beach envy towards all my friends who seem to be going to the beach every few weeks! ARGH.) Today I’m gonna chillax. Tomorrow I start unpacking properly & organizing my loot.
Thanks again Benj & G for the super yummy gigantic green mango! I miss you guys already and this taste of home is soothing me. =)
