Mangga Lemak err .. Fatty Mango?

Yes. I've been blog-quiet for quite sometime. Miss me?

Didn't go anywhere. On the contrary, stayed put at home so much so there're obvious dents with possible shades of fungal growth on couch and mattress. So what action (or more accurate, inaction) kept me away and will continue to do so for at least another 2 weeks? A long-winded intriguing Cantonese Drama Series, The Gem of Lifeand two arm muscle building novels. Heavy on the biceps but easy on mind.
Here, a quick sweet post to keep my dear almost abandoned blog afloat.

They don't turn yellow and even if not ripe they are just a tad sour.

Local produce in June July but now, from Thailand.

Get them from night (pasar malam ) and morning wet markets, RM5.00 for 2 kgs! Depending on size, it'll be about 10 smooth succulent juicy fruit. Hmm think over this 2 months I've easily consumed 7kgs!

worldwindows said...

I have a love hate relationship with Mango, Follet and TVB? I hate the super addictive TVB, Follet and mango. Yet love them to bits.

Tummythoz said...

thenomadGourmand, 0.6g of fat-lor in every medium size mango. Tried to put in a proper table but this IT-idiot (moi) just cannot be enlightened. Sheesh.

Make up your mind, Mr worldwindows. Fickleness is exclusively a females' trait.

Tummythoz said...

Tummythoz said...

teckiee, these are non-fiction drama set in a time where kids drank ale and bear baiting was entertainment.

bsg, how is this blush ever going to recede from not only my cheeks (ahem, face) but forehead too?

fatboybakes said...

i thought pillars of the earth was one of the best books ever written by Follet... who is one of my favourite authors. call me shallow. so so whats the verdict on world without end?
i still remember names like waleran bigod from the first book. terror hor. read it more than 15 yrs ago.

Tummythoz said...

terror fatboybakes, m still half way thru. Hmm if you like pillars, you'll enjoy world.

Yup 1st book was that long ago. No terror me have to re-read to recall.

rokh said...

Tummythoz said...

rokh, one word. Tedious.
