Not the biggest pieces that I would want to purchase if I am the one buying these red babies at Baguio City. But, I am delighted that eldest daughter went home (finally!) with a “pasalubong” in tow. It was the end of her semestral classes and we picked her up at the city last Wednesday at near midnight. Only to pack her bags again and left to hike a mountain trail off Nueva Viscaya. Poor girl, she had zigzagged her way down for four hours at Kennon Road and off zigzagging again way up another set of mountain ranges.
She said she was feeling exhausted, with her final exams starting on the second week of March, then coming off with preparation on her final thesis. She confided she was sleep drought lately. Their supposed trip to Nueva Viscaya is in conjunction with the thesis study. And, they were to collect new species of rats Rats! Ew!
Let me change the topic. I don’t wanna delve here talking about rodents. Haha!
So, I was kinda glad she went home with these fresh babies instead of the usual peanut brittle and strawberry preserve. She said she caught up a vendor near the van terminal and she bought two kilos for only seventy pesos per kilo (70).
Sweet! Since yesterday, we were munching these little reds. Hope I could find time today to make it into, perhaps, Strawberry Shortcake. Crossing fingers
For those planning to hike off to Baguio City this summer, I suggest visiting Strawberry Farm in La Trinidad. Only a jeepney away (or taxi when you would want to pay 300 pesos from the town area) from the town. There, you could experience “real” strawberry picking. But, instead of paying 70 or 90 pesos per kilo (strawberry prices in the public market), a small basket of strawberries you’d pick will cost you 300 pesos. Haha. It’s the experience that you will be paying
There were actually other fresh produce other than strawberries to look forward in La Trinidad. Check out the lettuces, the broccoli. Yay! I had the grandest time…picking strawberries for photo ops’ sake
Too evident. Isn’t it?
