Freshly picked and sliced pineapples on banana leaves
I haven't been able to cook or bake anything for some time now, simply because I am out on our Community Immersion in Silang, Cavite. We are supposed to conduct programs for the far-flung communities during this time, and we are of course required to live the life as a community member for three weeks.
Somehow between being homesick and sleeping in those hard bamboo beds the call papag, I saw how beautiful Silang really is. Our group was situated in the Sitios of Ilang-Ilang and Kasuyan, where we were adopted by our foster parents who live as farmers in the area. Here are some photos that I was able to take from our small trips to the bukid.
