A nephew and his wife, from the freezing East Coast, spent a night with us before they started their journey to Down Under. They brought some "pasalubongs" (gifts) for us one of which was a steamed sticky rice wrapped in banana leaf. We call it "suman". The moment hubby unwrapped one and the familiar scent wafted in the air, I was automatically brought back to my childhood!
Isn't it amazing how a simple sight like, color, or scent, or sound can transport you to another "era" in your life?
That "suman" sure did!
