Living in Phnom Penh: Mango Surprise..
Most mornings I am alone in the house. Chinkee goes to school, comes back around 11:30 and Hi-ace has office and some classes and comes home about 12 noon. I love mornings since this is like my ‘alone time’, best sched for me to update my blogs and work online.
Since I’m always alone, Hi-ace always tells me to be alert and keep the gate locked and lookout for some undesirables. So far, nothing bad has ever happened yet and hopefully nothing does in the future. I also have two phones around me in case I need to contact Hi-ace or his family well in cases of emergency.
This morning, I was doing my usual routine, after checking and replying to emails, when all of a sudden there was this loud ‘plok!!’ sound coming from outside. Since all was quiet, I was a bit freaked out, but I checked outside to see if there was anybody there. No one was there so I ventured to the yard..
Well, it was just a big and ripe mango! Hehe I picked it up and peeled it and voila!
And I guess there’s more to come..
and this one I’m watching out for.. It should be falling down anytime soon =)
Cambodian mango varieties are really plenty, this one’s really fleshy, have nice color and really sweet.. We have 3 kinds planted on the frontyard, the other one has huge fruits, crunchy and best eaten while its unripe with salt, sugar and chili dip or shredded and used as salad with onions, fish sauce and some chili. The other one has small fruits, the flesh almost orange and super sweet..
