Dumaguete Chapter 1: Till next time 158
On my bucket list, I have about 8 things under “Nature Category”. Yes, I’m that kind of girl who labels/categorizes things. And on this Dumaguete trip, I’m happy to say goodbye to #158!
Item #158 of 325

Katie and I are all set and ready to cross out 158 on my bucketlist. I’m so lucky to have friends who supports my antics.
Looking back, I couldnt remember really climbing a tall tree. I said really, because even though there are lots of fruit trees in my Grandma’s house (also known as official summer house of the babies in the family), we really don’t have to bother climbing one. Like fore example, if we want to munch on Spanish Plum (Spondias purpurea) or locally known as Sineguelas / Sarguelas, all we need to do is just go to the terrace and pick one. My cousins and I would usually hang-out on the terrce and sometimes when we feel hungry but to lazy to go down to the kitchen, we’d just reach the nearest fruitful branch and problem solved. If we want to eat Cottonfruit (Santol) or Katchamita mangoes (Indian Mango), we use long, dried bamboo stalks with hook on the end to get one. And if we are craving for fresh buko, just one call from Nanay Pat and Tiyoy Fred is on its way.
So you see, I didnt really have a chance to really climb a tree or explore what’s on top. That is why when I went to Katie’s hometown, I grabbed the chance to do it. And look at that!
That my friends, is the face of a happy kid. Hahahah
Yes, I know. Katie wasnt able to take snaps of me climbing, but she sure is ready to snaps my struggles of climbing down.
The struggle is real.
…She even managed to take a video and uploaded it on her Facebook page. Yes, she’s laughing at me. What a supportive, loving friend. hahahha

Katie’s family own a vast piece of land in Dumaguete. Looking around their land is heaven for fruitlovers. My mom would be so happy to stay here. Though a portion of it was not yet developed, Katie mentioned her family wanted to use the land to grow more crops.
More snaps of me with some of the fruits in their hacienda.
That’s me trying to get Tambis or Watery Rose Apple [Syzygium aqueum]
Now on the Apple Mango Tree
Me under the uber girly tree. Heheehe.
This is a Malay Rose Apple tree. The pink stuff that you see on the ground are actually its flowers that the tree shed.
Or locally known as Makopa
Fruits I successfully “harvested” on Hacienda Tale: Apple Mango, Tambis, and Mango.

Just me chillin on a hammock, munchin on my delicious Makopa
