Mango

I felt like kissing the rain yesterday. After several days of fasting, I just couldn't take the heat anymore. It has been days since I tasted rain on my lips.

Suddenly I realised that I couldn't kiss the rain. I was fasting. When the rain started to fall yesterday, I started to make outrageous plans in my head. I wanted to go outside and let the rain pour on on my head. I wanted to utilise my newly purchase shampoo and shower gel with the rain water. But...no. I couldn't do it yesterday. I was fasting. (I'm repeating myself, right?)

So today I'm going to be determine to find something sweet,nice, juicy and suitable for the weather. I want to buy mangoes and strawberries. I heard Nigella Lawson said that fruits are good during summer. It's not summer over here but it's too heaty and the sun is making me exhausted:(

The aunty in the market was promoting cherries to me the other day. I'm stil thinking about my budget. Though cherries are where the name cheryna came from, it's costly (same goes to cheryna!) Mangoes will be nice, because it's not too costly and it is definitely sweet.

I saw huge mangoes which cost RM14.99 per kg in Giant on Tuesday. But the mangoes have no scent. I'm now imagining sweet scented ripe mangoes, with coconut milk and sliced onions and chillies. Yummy!

Wikipedia:

" Mango is rich in a variety of phytochemicals and nutrients that qualify it as a model "superfruit", a term used to highlight potential health value of certain edible fruits. The fruit is high in prebiotic dietary fiber, vitamin C, polyphenols and provitamin A carotenoids.[12]

Mango contains essential vitamins and dietary minerals. The antioxidant vitamins A, C and E comprise 25%, 76% and 9% of the Dietary Reference Intake (DRI) in a 165 g serving. Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine, 11% DRI), vitamin K (9% DRI), other B vitamins and essential nutrients such as potassium, copper and 17 amino acids are at good levels. Mango peel and pulp contain other phytonutrients, such as the pigment antioxidants - carotenoids and polyphenols - and omega-3 and -6 polyunsaturated fatty acids."

Let's go for mango hunting!
