Young Coconut

What the heck a bunch of friends went to Windsor, Canada just to buy groceries and fruits that we couldn't find here in Michigan. Number one is Lanzones which we found out there is no more left. So we choose to buy Longan or Lychees which is very small like a size of Lanzones but sweet. Then the second one is Young coconut and the cost $2.49 each! My mind calculate right away how much it cost if this is converted to peso and how many buko can I get with just $3.00. Mag handa ka Pilipinas pag uwi ko ubos ang buko dyan hehehe.  I bought five of these buko or young coconut for hubby. It's his favorite second to fresh scampi. ^_^

You can buy 8 or more young coconut here in the Philippines with your $3.00. Lol! That's expensive, but of course, yummy! Thanks for the FF visit!

If I am not mistaken, fresh buko here is about 3NZD. That's approx. 2.5USD and... 107 pesoses! Ay! But we still buy from time to time :-)

Grabe naman, super expensive! I think it's just 25pesos/piece here in Manila (mahal na yun!), sa province libre pa, ask lang kay father-dear at meron na 'kong buco, fresh from the tree. ;) Iba talaga kapag imported! :D

wow, that's really expensive! well, as long as the quality of the product is good, then indulge! am sure every bite/drop is worth it! :)
