Old Chinese peoples believe if you see mango (I think they mean unripe mango), if you are not salivating, then you will change to ugly look !! I heard this when I was young, did you hear this kind of old believe before?
-Are you salivating after see this photo? If not, better pretend you are, otherwise you will change to ugly, Hahaha!!
