Australian diplomat Dr. Geoffrey Shaw surprised Pakistanis as he ate Pakistani mangoes in a pure Pakistani style.
Mangoes are called the king of fruits in Pakistan. The delicious fruit is highly consumed not only in Pakistan but in foreign countries as well.
The Australian diplomat shared his photo in which he was seen eating mangoes with fork and knife. However, locals challenged him to enjoy the fruit in ‘pure Pakistani style’.
Surprisingly, he accepted the challenge and ate the fruit without using cutlery. He shared his news photos on Twitter and Pakistanis loved them.
He tweeted, “I’ve listened to the many comments after my previous tweet and tried eating mangoes in the traditional Pakistani style,”
I’ve listened to the many comments after my previous tweet & tried eating mangoes in the traditional Pakistani style. A good #mango, eaten ‘the right way’, can lift your spirits & give you as much pleasure as an ice cream! It’s rightly called ‘The King of Fruits’ in 🇵🇰 Pakistan. pic.twitter.com/N22VfSg1X8
