Like the life of Nenita, a 12 year old girl who quit school to sustain the needs of her family. She ventured to the one way street of there town looking for job and met people whom she enjoyed and loved until their last breath. She enjoyed cooking like the other girls, she enjoyed every movement, every gesture and every meaning of every sound she heard.

From the bubbling hot oil that she experienced and heard the sound of joy. She must be parallel to atchara, from the day she was born and prepared for the development of her life, the vegetables and the fruits that nurture her and the vinegar who gives sourness.

Slicing every ingredients to be prepared, slicing native onion is like sadness, sadness that will never be forgotten from the first touch to the last little piece of large sliced onions. Squeezing the sap of ginger and the papaya, makes you suffer of body pain from working day and night.

The smell of the boiling solution of salt, vinegar and ginger sap makes you dizzy and fall from every trap that appears at your side and lastly, the mixing of fresh ingredients like fresh memories and the sourness of the vinegar solution creating a balance taste of a perfect side dish, atchara.

A Filipino delicacy that will be never forget by the person who first sinned by the apple.

This book was like a straight line, no humps, no curves not even a small dirt of pen can bent. While reading this book, I must confess that the book was lack of what we call climax and rising action.

I can't feel my body get excited reading every prose she wrote but my salivary gland nonstop from producing sticky mucus. Mentioning hundreds of local delicacies makes my tongue jump and lick every pages of the book, I may be crying remembering my mother, how sweet and bitter a life can be.

Before you start reading her novel I must invite you guys to enter her Fruit Stall, a short story she wrote for Filipino especially the beautiful body of the papayas, who work abroad and lost counts of there dignity and wishing a better future. A story of an OFW who sold by her father to a foreigner and become a prostitute to send small little grapes to her family.
