Do you know what Pomelo is? Well, it is similar to a grapefruit, although much sweeter. Pomelo, in my opinion is simply far superior to grapefruit. It is sweet, juicy, and generally just all-around-GOOD. I love the stuff. Pomelo is the English name of the fruit, in Tagalog it is called “Suha,” and in Bisaya it is called “Buongon.” Whatever you call it, the stuff just tastes good, and it’s good for you too.
Yesterday, Feyma and I, along with our oldest son Chris took a trip to Digos, Davao del Sur. We went there to visit our friends Kevin and Jaycee. Kevin is a former writer on this website. Kevin and Jaycee live in Pennsylvania, USA, but are currently spending two months in the Philippines. Kevin is a Science teacher in a US Middle School, and they will be returning home soon, as school will be starting before much longer.
On our way to Digos, we stopped in Santa Cruz, Davao del Sur and bought some Pomelo at a roadside fruit stand. Have a look at the Video below to watch as my new friend Tita, the vendor, cuts up the Pomelo so that we can eat it during our drive!
As much as we enjoyed the Pomelo, I must admit that Feyma and I enjoyed even more the opportunity to meet Kevin and Jaycee. Their current trip was our first chance to meet them in person, and I must say that I consider them good friends now! We enjoyed a great lunch at their house in Digos on tuesday, consisting of Lechon Manok, Pancit, Rice, Pomelo Salad and other treats! After the meal, we sent out for some delicious Durian and Marang fruits! We really pigged out in Digos, and enjoyed every bite! Good food, good company – how could you possibly go wrong?
Thank you Kevin and Jaycee for your gift of friendship over the past couple of months! We are looking forward to your return to the Davao region, whenever that may be!
