About this blog right here. Uh huh...

Some people call my luv of mangoes 'a fetish'. Meh. I say it's gone way beyond that! This blog's my homage to the succulent fruit - memoirs, poetry, random thoughts, pics & anything mango-related I can get my tongue on.

Oooh, what beauties :-)

I bought these mangoes on Saturday down Whitechapel Market. I was on a tight budget, but I had reason to celebrate, so I thought 'to hell with it' and treated myself.

These yellow reasons to smile came in a box of 24. Altogether, it came to £6 - but I am my mother's daughter, I haggled it down to £5.50; works out at about 23p per mango!

I gave six away: one to a friend I hadn't seen in a while, two to his mum and three to a really close friend of mine (a fellow mango freak!)

...and the rest were mine, mine, MIIIIIIIIIINE :-)

As of the writing of this post, there are only three mangoes left!



...that in Hinduism, the mango tree is considered to be sacred because Prajapati, the Lord of Creatures, was changed into a mango tree.
