Pineapples! Pineapples! and more Pineapples!

So this post isn't supposed to be here yet since I've got a long line of posts I'm supposed to make, but I'm just really excited to share about seeing so many pineapples (mountains and mountains!).

Anyway, my good friend Honey brought me to the Del Monte plantation in Bukidnon one sunny Sunday morning. I've always wanted to go there, but I've always been in a rush. Good thing I had to give up white water rafting and had to find another thing to do in Cagayan de Oro.

So, Honey picks me up at the hotel at around 10 in the morning and we proceeded to McDonald's for breakfast (one gets tired of eating hotel silogs... don't laugh but I had the longganisa meal). And then since her associate, John, couldn't make it we took a drive up the mountains of Bukidnon (which is just a few hours away from Davao!) and lo and behold, this is what I saw -

Mountains! Literally mountains of pineapples! It was a refreshing site indeed. I dunno, but I got really excited about it and had a photo taken with the largest pineapple of all.

After walking around and failing to see a ready-for-picking pineapple (Honey wanted me to steal one! I was so relieved when we didn't find any! Hehe.). So I just posed like I was trying to uproot one lol. And, of course, despite all the eating we've been doing prior to the trip, I was still up to the challenge of trying out the famous Del Monte steak at the Del Monte Golf Club. What differentiates it from all other steaks is the fact that the cows were fed with pineapples and that makes them more juicy. Yumyumyum!

Funny though... I'm allergic to pineapples! Haha.
