In Gensan we were lucky to chance upon the Kalilangan Festival. The venue is just across our hotel. There were several stalls showcasing their local agricultural products. They have a shows, ethnic music and traditional games. It's colorful and different tribes were present.
I grew up in a family who are into agriculture and we've always been nature lovers. My parents really appreciated the SOCCSKSARGEN experience. We visited a stall exhibiting all types of Bananas grown in Mindanao. They vary in color & size, it's my first time to see such varieties.They even have the Thousand Fingers Banana.
On our way back to the hotel, we stopped by the fruit stand to sample on Durian. You can not leave Mindanao without tasting one. It's the queen of fruits. In a makeshift table we ate enjoyed the meaty Durian. It's known to be an Aphrodisiac and may cause high blood pressure.
