Leave Days aka. fruit mania.

I was able to return to my homeland this weekend. Honestly, everytime I go somewhere other than Toronto I come back with a renewed sense of pride for my little cultural melting pot of a city.

I'm excited to mention that this was the weekend of mangos. dragonfruit, and pineapple slices! Obviously cafs don't provide those fruits. You usually see orange slices, grapefruits, bananas, watermelon slices, and honey dew or cantaloupe. That's still a good variety but doesn't include my all time faves. Persimmons, Mangos, Papaya, and lychee.

I took a walk to chinatown with a friend, and we stocked up on their sweet deals, 5 mangoes for $5 anyone? Tell me what's so great about your city, and where can you find those great hidden deals. Also, Props to anyone who can tell me where the mango quote is from (underneath the picture)!
"we are going to make your mosquito bites look like, JUICY JUICY MANGOS"

  1. Chinatown is def the best place for cheap fruit! also at closing time at farmers markets they usually mark down fruits/veggies!

    I love that quote! from Bend it like Beckham, right? sooo funny
