Yeah It's Summer

Our Giant Banana: Tindok

We finally cut our Tindok banana *tree (though it’s technically considered as herbaceous plant). It’s our first time to grow this type of banana and it’s definitely the biggest variety I have seen so far (Is there any type bigger than that?) This type of banana is not eaten directly. You have to cook it first just like the saba banana but what we did is, we sliced the ripe one and we ate a little portion of it (we're just curious about its taste - but hey... we didn't ate the whole ripe banana). 
Yesterday, we cooked the unripe tindok and it taste good just like saba.

 Janine can't resist not to taste it

 big banana meets the thin pencil

 it's kinda heavy too

 see how big it is compared to the latundan banana

 eating eat like an ice-cream in a cup

I'm still strong

Life has been so hard to me lately, I am emotionally broken. Discouragement is starting to tear me into pieces. Problems, confusion, misunderstandings are also coming along together. I find it hard to talk about it with anybody even to my husband, because I always think that they will never understand it and they might only think that I am the bad one.

When certain things happen in an instant, it's good to embrace acceptance and move on.
When you believe that mishaps will eventually come to you, always ask God for guidance and strong heart to take it.
If you want want to grow and become a better individual, explore the world and move your feet to a better space. There are so many interesting and challenging things out there.
If someone is judging you wrongly, speak out (cry if you want) and let them know that you're not that type. There is nothing wrong with crying or sobbing because it's one way of giving your heart a lift.
Lastly, don't forget to love yourself more.
