Hernie's been coughing since we arrived in Davao, but after last evenings pool dip it turned to high fever over night and as we woke up this morning he was really not good at all. So we ended up spending Sunday by being confined to our hotel room. Lucky for us his parrents stoped by with food and fresh fruits for us, which I appreciated very very much!
This was also the introduction for me to the Marang fruit. We had been talking about the Durian while we were in the Davao Airport so to see the Marang fruit was really an interesting treat for me. Like the Durian it's round and filled with spikes, however the Marang is soft shelled wich the Durian is not.
When you open the shell it's full of small cubes wich is eatable - you take one of the cubes in your mouth and suck the stone inside each cube out and then you eat the rest.
Acctually it's funny to see because when I'm in asia my fruit intake really goes up with maybe 100% or more as here I eat several fruits everyday, at home I onley eat like 3-4 times a week. Why? Because fruit in Asia acctually taste fruit! At home where allmost all our fruits are imported they are dull, tasteless and feels old even before you bring them home from the supermarket. Here - it's like being in heaven it's fresh, the taste is much stronger and the textures are really good! This region really brings on my love of fruits!
