I took these photos out of excitement as I was telling myself, “Finally, something that feels like home (and would hopefully taste like home). I must write a blog post about this with the title “Feels Like Home.”
However, after two or three bites, I started getting disappointed. It wasn’t savory at all – both the eggplant and the mango. They were in fact distasteful. Yes, they did look like home but they didn’t taste like home; not even close. So I ended up finishing the rice only.
To all expats out there, you probably know how that feels (feeling sorry for yourself and missing home all the more). 😦
