Sweet-Sour-Spicy Heaven


Mom knows me well.

Hundreds of miles away in Australia, she thoughtfully sends me three packs of Thai Sampaloc balls.

She must have known how, like when I was her little girl, I'd gleefully pop each ball into my mouth, loving the tug-o-war between the tang, sweetness, saltiness and spice.

Thai deli carts sells Thai sampaloc in malls, but it's the thoughtfulness and the attendant memories of a happy childhood that makes the three packs of Thai sampaloc from Mom a little piece of heaven. :)

Why AnneThology?

Anthology means a collection of poems, short stories, plays, songs, or excerpts. My name is Anne, and this blog contains a collection of my thoughts, musings and writings (poems, short stories), some songs I like, plus a sprinkling of excerpts I find worth sharing --hence, AnneThology.

Did you know?

Anthology derives from the Greek word ἀνθολογία (anthologia; literally “flower-gathering”) for garland — or bouquet of flowers — which was the title of the earliest surviving anthology, assembled by Meleager of Gadara.

Look, what I have -- these are all for you.
