My favorite section in the grocery store

My favorite section in the grocery store

Image

There is something about walking into a clean grocery store and walking through the produce section smelling the fresh fruits and vegetables.  I love the smell of fresh lettuce, bell peppers, onions, cabbage and tomatoes

Image

Quite honestly, I am not a fan of the fresh FISH section, though they say we should eat fish on a daily basis in order to maintain good health.

I could spend an hour or two  walking through the produce section taking in the smells and looking at the fresh fruits and vegetables.

Savemore markets in the Philippines

Savemore market in the Philippines

The Savemore Market in the Philippines is, perhaps, the most American Styled supermarket that I have seen during my seven month journey in the Philippines. I went to the Savemore market in Tuguegarao City, in the cagayan valley and also to Savemore in Santa Cruz, Manila. 

Image

The prices are very competitive and there is a wide selection of items to choose from.

Pictured above is the Savemore building in Tuguegarao City. The actual market is on the other side of the building.   Savemore is always very  well air conditioned, so it is a welcome relief to get out of the hot Philippine tropical sun and do some shopping!

My boarding house in Manila

ImageI want to thank my landlords Rose and Sonny for letting me stay at their boarding house on Natividad Ave in Santa Cruz, Manila.  I learned a lot about Manila during my stay there and I learned how to take MASS TRANSIT.  I took Jeepneys (Jeeps built into a small bus), Tricycles (motorcycles with side car), elevated trains (MRT/LRT) as well as the occasional Calesa in Intramuros! I got to see first hand the markets in Santa Cruz and the vendors selling all types of electronics!  I wish I would have had more time to stay and perhaps, mor importantly, more money!
