Earlier this month, I took a break and went to Manila for a change. I came down specifically to attend my high school reunion in Colegio San Agustin, Makati. The same time spend some time with my batchmates who I have not seen for 24 years. Yes, 24 years. It was a great feeling. It took me back in time.
I would also like to thank Candy for personally inviting me over and opening her home for me for a couple of days. Truly grateful and will never forget her kindness. This was taken the morning of August 10th 2013, she took me to Alabang Saturday Farmers Market for a brunch.
I love weekend markets. They have been a homemaker alternative palenke (market). You will find the freshest harvest, newly-caught fish, crustaceans and innovative food stuff that ranges from alternative Filipino dishes with a twist to a variety of breads, cakes and pastries. Yes, even suman and puto. Oh, one more thing – Lebanese food. I got myself a Shawarma and the guy even knows my family.
Considering the area, they all come at a considerably lower price. It’s a quite farmers market, not crowded as the one in Makati. If you are based in Manila or planning to visit one day, come and check them out.
