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.
