Case in point....I was at the supermarket on Wednesday helping out a friend who needed a ride to buy groceries. I had already purchased my lunch from my favourite take-away restaurant (Wing Kwong), and I had settled myself comfortably down to eat while waiting for my friend to shop.
Breadfruit with a lovely steamed trout sauce....it was sooooo GOOD.
Okay so I'm sitting and eating my lunch, when my senses are invaded by a guy shouting in the car park.
He is selling bags of mangoes.
"Get wunnuh mangoes hey now!
Just $2.00 a bag!
Sugar Pun Seed!
Round hey I working wid pure sugar man!
Dah wuh guine on!"
I understood everything at first, except the Sugar Pun Seed....it was only after a few times listening carefully that I detected that that was what was being said.
Get Your mangoes here now
Just $2.00 a bag
Sugar on Seed
Around here I am working with pure sugar man
That is what's going on.
The Sugar on Seed refers to the sweet sugary mango pulp which surrounds the seed.
They were all sold out in a hurry. I didn't get to buy any, I was too busy enjoying my lunch.
