The Philippines

I have chosen two market cards for today's update, it's Food and Drinks month, after all :D First one is a colourful postcards from the Philippines, showing all the different fruits that you can find on the stands along the roadside in Tagaytay. The round, hairy red fruit is called rambutan. Interesting, the name rambutan is derived from the Malay/Indonesian word rambutan, meaning "hairy". Lannie writes that it's one of her favourite fruits. 

The stamps attached, issued in 2009, show some traditional games from the Philippines. Thank you very very much, Lannie!
