Portraits of Summer

As a kid growing up in Manila, my mom will make the most of the summer months of March and April by feeding us with the fruits of the season: pakwan {watermelon}, mangga {maggoes}. milon {cantaloupe}, siniguelas {Spanish plum}, duhat (Java plum}, suha {sweet pomelo} and my favorite kaimito {star apple}.

 Unfortunately, most of these fruits are not available here in Canada but luckily, I can easily satisfy the cravings with what our Canadian farmers have to offer during the summer months of July and August. Hubby and I usually drive to the orchards in Niagara region to pick Ontario cherries and peaches ourselves. There's nothing more gratifying than eating these fruits right under the tree while looking up for the next one to pick. Ahhh, pure bliss!

I had the best fruits that south east Asia has to offer. I can't complain that I am now feasting on the north American fruits. They are totally different in tastes and textures but equally delectable!
