I miss my little Nate. They’re supposed to visit me today but my daughter got sick so I have to wait for another week before I get to see my “apo”. I am looking forward to having him around again and see what he has learned and accomplished in a month. He is almost six months old now, time flies!
Last Wednesday, Josef and I went to Pasig City market just to buy fruits. It was his day-off so what better way to spend the early morning but to visit a place that I haven’t seen for so many years? I’ve been told by some friends that the price of fruits there are really cheap. The place is where fresh produce coming from the provinces are sold wholesale and by the kilo. I was simply awed by the variety of fruits they have, all housed in a large complex that used to be just a few stalls ten, fifteen years ago. Where can you find a kilo of sineguelas at only P20? They had sacks and sacks of it lining up several stores.The other day, I asked some vendors here in our place how much a kilo of it costs and I was surprised that they were selling it at P60/kilo. One large pineapple that sells around P75 to P80 a piece in our place costs only P50 in Pasig. Green and ripe mangoes are sold by the sacks and crates too. Would you believe Indian mangoes are at P10/kilo? As we just took a commute to the place, I didn’t buy much except these, all for the price of P400, a half kilo of fresh peanuts, a kilo of sweet potato, sweet corn and a large watermelon included.
I will definitely come back here if only to buy more sineguelas and fresh pineapples. I haven’t explored the place yet. There are other fruits on display like bananas (all kinds, I think), durian (which I don’t eat). Think summer, think fruits!
