Craving for mango

Have been craving for Mango in the past week and thus I bought 3 nos on Monday, thinking to eat one on every other day. I'm only craving for the sweet ones & dislike the sour ones. Therefore I have to keep 2 that are not so ripe yet in the rice bucket for a few days & wait for it to ripe, the other 1 I kept in the fridge.

On Tuesday morning when I want to take the mango from the fridge to my office, it is already gone and when I ask my maid, she said my MIL ate it last night after I went to bed. Ok fine, at least I still have the other 2 in the rice bucket, but since it's not ripe yet, I will wait patiently.

On Thursday night, the mangoes finally turned into nice yellowish colour and became soft, I kept them back in the fridge so that I can eat it over the weekend. Guess what then? This morning when I open the fridge, nothing is left there (who else could have eaten it?) I know it's just a small matter but you can tell how furious I am if you also have cravings before; as I'm writing this, I'm still furious but I know I cannot complain my MIL, because it's rude to do so.....So I can only vent my anger here.....:<

If it's me, I would've b*tched in front of my hubby and make him buy more ripe ones and "inform" his mom NOT to eat it.

Poor poor u... I understand your sentiments exactly. I can never "biatched" about my in-laws also...don't have it in me! Do you have a second fridge in the house? I know it's an expensive indulgence but I'm getting a small, 2nd fridge soon to "hide" things that I want to myself *sheepishhhh grin* seriously la, or else my family always hentam all my food :( They even say my baby drools a lot because when I was pregnant I didn't get to eat the food I was craving for, because my sister or her kids would gobble everything down. Hehe

Comment it loud in front of yr MIL and yr husband, like just accidentally slip out fr your mouth, saying that you are craving for mango. Yr MIL should be seng mok one.

Actually our relationship has always been fine, it's just these tiny matters that will happen occasionally, no big fight (yet) though, haha ;P

Next time when I'm craving for something, I'd make an announcement to the family, hahaha.
