aratiles hunt on Mothers' Day

we've spent mothers' day in my inlaws' farm... and while checking around i immediately spotted the 2 aratiles trees! we ransacked it for whatever little ripe aratiles it can give us... this picking of aratiles is definitely one of the fun memories i have from my childhood... i love the picking part more than eating the harvest! i enjoy spotting ripes and trying to get it, either we climb or jump for the fruit or even put our sungkit skills to test! :-) what made it more fun this time is because i have my little pao with us! he's loving the outdoors already... but i think he's not used to some fun riot yet because he cried when we were laughing and shouting over a datiles that's hard to reach...he had fun overall though, and so did all of us!


he got acquainted with cats and pigs and cows, just a few animals that doesn't exists in our place. :-) i love that he's not afraid to be brought near them, and even wants his feet touch and feel cats and cows and pigs hehehe


here's a little photodiary of that day!

  2. OMGOSH! wala ng ganyan dito sa Bataan. definitely the fruit from my childhood too. we used to have 4 trees of aratilis in our backyard, akin ang isa. so many fun, unforgettable memories from it too. Sometimes naiisip ko, kelan kaya aakyat ng puno si Yllac. Kasi wala ng puno sa amin. hindi na kami napunta sa bukid namin. it would be cruel kung hindi sya makaakyat ng puno. unfair!
