Since moving to England two months ago, I’ve not really had a ‘food problem.’ Rice, a staple in the Philippines, is readily available here – I was, in fact, pleasantly surprised to see an aisle label for it in Tesco. There are Asian stores for condiments, and for the rest, well, I’m not particularly endeared to most of them. As blasphemous as it might sound to other Filipinos, I’m not really a fan of binignit, sinigang or lechon.
Now that we’re rolling into summer, however, I’ve realized the one thing that’s missing: actual warm weather!
Okay, I kid. We’re talking about food.
And I’m talking about mangoes.

That Mango float looks delicious!! Ah yes, we really don’t have great weather in the UK. The south of England seems to get the priviledge of nice weather more than the rest of the UK but mostly everyone just has to deal with drizzle and wind a lot. 🙂
When I was pregnant with my daughter, mangoes were the only thing I could eat without being sick afterward. (I had “morning” sickness 24 hours a day throughout both my pregnancies.) You’d think I’d have grown sick of them after that, but I still love them.
