Ya, we spent the looong weekend at my parent’s house in Cavite and the happenings during that 4 days off from work is yet to be blog soon. I have to pause from blogging once again because work back at the office is overflowing following the holiday. Sigh! 😐
Anyhow, the work week is about the end again in a few more hours and another long weekend awaits us all. Leoncio and I still have second thoughts of spending it again in Cavite after the significant fuel hike this week. But wait, just thinking that we will be missing Nanay’s home-cooked meals and Tatay’s local harvest from his small fruit farm we might bend our plan overnight. Looks like B will have Momi and Dadi again. 😀
And I’m proudly talking about the local harvest we brought to Manila and enjoyed during the rest of the week.
Red Lady Papaya. It’s not the usual papaya I grow up with; this variety is orange, sweet and elongated.
Suha or Pomelo. It’s not the Davao quality pink flesh citrus fruit nonetheless it’s citrusy without the bitter aftertaste.
Dragon Fruit. This one not from my Tatay’s fruit farm but for P50 a kilo, its sounds a very good deal besides the producer gave us a bagful of this very delicious and nutritious fruit for free. 🙂
We also had bananas in two varieties, saba (cardaba) and latundan, santol and rambutan. And even if I’m not a big fan of santol I can guarantee its sweetness and juicy tissue. A couple more years, we’re looking at harvesting bunches of lanzones fruit. Hurray for my Tatay for his green thumb and his hard work!
P.S. Of course B’s being there makes us want to come home regularly. 😛
