Before you read any further please try saying “Chipkoo Chikoo” continuously 15 times 😀
Ok, back to the topic. If you will ask PK what is his favorite fruit, he will reply in a micro second – “Chikoooooo” If you don’t know then google it, it’s also called ‘sapodilla’ which sounds very funny to me, as if it’s some loose snake’s name in hindi 😀 Oh and you know if you will ask him his favorite vegetable, he will say “Bitter-gourd” I know.. such weird taste ehh..
When we were in India last time, that is during my sister’s wedding, Chikoos were in full season. Whenever my Mum spotted any Chikoo-wala on road, she used to scream “Stop” “Stop” & my Dad used to be shocked like what happened?? Why are you screaming?? Mum used be like – Oh I saw nice Chikoos with that Chikoo-wala, we have to buy for PK. PK used to feel so shy.. I think we ate Chikoo almost every day either in the form of Chikoo shake or just a cut fruit. I had a pic as well of PK eating his plate of Chikoo but couldn’t find it on my phone, maybe I lost it 😦
Oh and you remember Mum and Dad sent us parcel from India for our birthdays, my Mum sent us a packet of Chikoo shake but in dry form. We haven’t tried it yet, I don’t think any powder mixed with milk can taste like Chikoo shake but Mum said she has tried it & she liked it that’s why she has sent it to us. Okie Mum, we will give it a try soon 🙂
The other day PK was craving for his Chikoo shake, he bought frozen Chikoo from Indian store & decided to make it. The drink looked so lovely with ice crushed in it, he served the shake in big beer mugs. As soon as I had one sip I felt something weird. I asked PK how is he liking his drink?? Because he had made it, he was like – ya ya its very nice, it’s refreshing & bla bla bla.. After 2-3 minutes I took the mug for another sip & I felt like my lips were stuck with each other, I could not open my mouth. I saw PK from the corner of my eye, he was also struggling with drinking it.. His lips had some white stuff on it & his lips were also sticking with each other. I went to the bathroom & saw in the mirror my lips also had glue like sticky white thing on my lips which was making my lips stick with each other. I washed my lips like 2-3 times with soap & then only the sticky stuff went away leaving very dry lips of mine 😦
Even though we were laughing a lot on what was happening, we were curious to know why did that happened?? I googled stuffs like – “Sticky glue on lips after drinking” “Mugs not washed properly & that’s why sticky glue on our lips??” and so many idiotic things. While PK, sitting next to me just googled – “Sticky lips after drinking Chickoo shake” & we found the answer. Duhh.. Actually in the pack of frozen Chikoos, there was a raw chikoo as well, that was frozen & raw Chikoos have latex in it which came to our lips when we drank that chikoo shake. What a fail of Chikoo Shake it was but we learnt something new and also had unexpected laughter session…
