SoMin visit: Day 1 - Dole Philippines plantation and Trappistine Monastery

Sunday morning. Masakit pa rin ang paa dahil sa nangyari kagabi. Nilagyan muna ng Hot compress at liniment. Breakfast mode muna. Hiyang hiya si Marvin sa nangyari pero sabi ko kasalanan ko at hindi ako nag-ingat. Formally introduced to his parents si Mang Gerardo and Aling Delia, both were service awardee (20 years+) sa Dole Philippines. Niyaya ako ng father ni Marvin na pumunta sa Dole Plantation malapit sa kanila. Isang researcher/agriculturist kaya may access siya sa area na ito.

in a few months, plantation will produce a sweet, sun ripened pineapples ready for harvest

saglit na pa-picture sa Dole employees area dahil bawal

1st time na kumain ng Durian, in fairness hindi naman talaga siya mabaho pero yung nabiling variety ni Marvin eh mapait talaga siya sa panlasa ko though ang sarap sarap niyang tingnan at ma krema ang itsura
