Monday Mellow Yellows 054: Seasonal fruits

I’m posting early this week coz I know I will be very busy in the coming weeks. We are on our toes as a new management (and owners) have taken over the company where I’m currently working. Each employee are being evaluated whether they remain in the company, or be let go. I hope I don’t get get into the latter category 🙁

Anyways, my entry this week is a snap I took while strolling at the city centro (center).

I always make sure I get to see the city while on vacation before going back to Pampanga again. Very nice to see old, familiar places and faces and keeping up with them. In one of those strolls, I passed by Arturo Store along Taft Street and reminisced the old times. My, it has changed a lot.

Next door to Arturo is Sunny Store, another old timer, and surprising enduring up to these days. Across the store is a strip of fruit stalls, including my cousin’s. And these are some of the yummy fruits that are sold at my cousin’s stall. They sell mostly imported fruits, those considered as “expensive fruits”, depending on the season. Apples, grapes, pears, tangerines and some local ones like pomelos, mangoes, etc. They also sell foodstuff like banana chips, peanut brittle, watermelon seeds, and many others. They are best as pasalubong, or a homecoming gift, which is a Filipino tradition.
