2013 – Happy New Year

Bear with me folks, my blog is being resurrected, new year and all.

Mangoes Mangoes Mangoes!


Finally a decent internet connection, though still slow as @#$%, even though i have to “borrow” it from my neighbour.  So what have I been doing all these days? Eating MANGOES! I’m on a mango diet, I have a mango at every meal.  There is nothing like a Goan mango.  It has just the right amount of sweetness, very juicy, fleshy, it puts all the other mangoes to shame.  Everyone should try a Goan mango before they die.  This one is called Musrad/Monserrate (not sure about the spelling, but it’s pronounced “moose-raad” Smile with tongue out) These are my favourite because we make mango jam from these.  Last time we came, our tree was full, about 200 mangoes or more, we ended up giving a whole bunch to our family and we took 2 extra suitcases full of just mango jam Smile!


And this one is called Malcurad/Mankurad (pronounced “mul-coo-raad).  This one really sweet as well.  I’ll take a picture of my own once I go to the market, for now:

I’m making plans to grow an orchard full of mostly mango trees with a mix of jackfruit/cashew/custard apple/coconut trees!  For now, I’m off to eat another mango! bye.

A Post About Posts


I know I know, I’ve been MIA, but I’m back! at least for the time being.  I’ve decided to write more since I was harassed by Red about my lack of content, and that’s putting it mildly.  You should have seen the scene she made when we met!  So to pacify her, I’m creating a blog post about writing more blog posts.  Hey, they say if you want things to happen, write them down.  Don’t shoot the messenger.  OK, so my upcoming posts are going to be travel related, in light of my upcoming trip:

  • What’s on your travel bucket list?

List 10 destinations, with 1 photo to represent each place, that you want to visit in your lifetime.  RANDOMRED, I challenge you to do this as well, ok fine, even 5 places is “adequate”

  • A review of the thai restaurant I visited the other day, It has a very thai name!
  • A blurb about my upcoming trip, I don’t think I’ve ever profiled where I’m from.

Stay tuned.
