After a little more than an hour of assembly, it’s finally ready for the two-hour commute to the city of Sta. Rosa –at around noon, the hottest time of the day 😐

Found myself as the first customer at the local flower shop along Lopez Avenue. Thankfully, Fresh Blossoms was already open minutes before the 10 am official start of operation hours. the PhP 65 discount was a good enough distraction to my questionable decision of buying flowers and transporting it during the hottest time of the day.

Who knew we’d be purchasing an “orange” per kilo?  It was sold by piece during my childhood. I could not help breaking a grin when I saw this at the market this morning. Five pieces of orange cost me PhP 25.

It’s Wednesday, a market day in Bacacay, Albay. Wednesdays and Sundays are the market days in the municipality.
