My great fun memorized when my mother used to take me along to the market once a week on my holiday school it was such a great chance being her company and helping her to carry her shopping stuffs. 

The other thrilling part which was making me could not awaiting Sunday holiday coming very soon is the moment I entered the market, oh...unbelivably amazing scenery--seeing the peddlers are selling variety of primary foods, traditional cake (jajan pasar) kitchen tools and many other stuffs, i wish i could rolled back the time--siiighh...!!

Another flashed, i did not forget when she taking me along to market during mango season **oh…I can't help the way I jumped behind her, hahaha… what an excitement moment it was. 
She always craved for ripe mangoes and enjoying them as i do so and for suremy mother will picked them up about half or even one dozen of mangoes as she is a huge fans either.

I am not mad now, laughing alone while typing and telling this story-- I just remember at time when my mother had done choosing ripe mangoes and she paid to the peddler, afterwards we have to move to get home **again those raw green mangoes always being temptations to me and I would keeping my eyes at them and freeze my step as hint to my mother to pleased her buying for me raw green mango just one or two pieces, pretty amusing--how smart my trick was to get what I demand.
To make a simply magic green mango salad is quite easy and simple, oh I used to call as “Manisan mangga” (manisan is sweet salads-mangga is mango)
Having it chill is nicer and definitely heavenly snack.
Touched up with red bird eye chilli just to get spicy sting--it would be a great combinations as my naughty suggestion.
