Two weeks ago, my younger brother went to the Philippines for a short holiday. It was the Cambodian King Norodom Sihamoni’s birthday and it was celebrated for three days plus he took some days off to enjoy a 10day holiday. When he came back, I was surprised to receive a boxful of Goldilock’s special ensaymada and mamon, thanks to his girlfriend, Jasmin.
The sight of the familiar yellow and blue colors of Goldilocks made me salivate, an instant response that reminded me of the experiment conducted by a psychologist named Pavlov a long, long time ago. And who wouldn’t be, just look at that oh-so-sweet goodness? The ensaymada – topped with cheese and sugar with bits of ham – is a total indulgence while the mamon had cheese on top, which my husband found weird (*lol*) but the sponge cake itself was nice. Having mamon and ensaymada after such a long time (more than 2 years is a long time!) definitely satisfied my craving for something that reminds me of home.
Again, madamo guid nga salamat, Min-min 🙂
