Meron kami neto dito sa lugar namin. Hindi sa amin ang mismong tanim kundi sa kabitbahay namin at naka-encroach sa bakod namin.

Since lablab namin ang isa’t isa, okey lang daw ang mamitas ako neto anytime sabi ng nebor namin.

Nakita ko minsan sa site ng Lazada, binebenta ang dried Blue Butterfly Pea flowers ng P828.00 per 60 grams.  Ang mahal ha! Mahal para sa akin.

Swerte ko kasi dito sa amin sa probinsya, pinipitas ko lang ‘to sa bakuran namin courtesy ng nebor namin.
