    Hello,
    Why is it not
    Do que mayonnaise? I don’t quite understand this “a” before verbs but u see it a lot. For example “daqui a pouco”

      Whoops that a decent example but I meant before verbs like “tenho uma imagem a zelar”

      Super question Joe. In fact it could be both. Think of the English phrases: “I like ketchup more than mayonnaise” or “I prefer ketchup to mayonnaise.” Basically we have the same option in Portuguese. Myself, I probably would have said it the way you do Joe, “gosto de maionese mais do que ketchup.” but either is fine.
