It is only March but I am now looking at things my husband would like for our anniversary. It’s a bit of a challenge to find a gift for my husband on special occasions as he is pretty much the person who can afford what he wants or more to say, what he needs. But one thing is for sure, my husband is into music and musical gadget so I am not eyeing on this vocal looper at musicians friend that I think he doesn’t have yet. I may have to make sure and check if he doesn’t have this yet because some gadgets he already has are like aliens to me and I don’t have any idea what it is for.
I hope my online earning would come to a full blast so I can afford to buy this one for our anniversary. The husband always gives me nicer gifts and I wanna give back the thoughtful gestures. I still have couple of months to save and look for some more options but this one is definitely on the list.
This banana is amazingly THE LONGEST banana plant I have ever seen. I have seen some of my friends taking photos of this variety and I thought it wasn’t real before I saw this one proudly growing in my parent’s own backyard. The Usual banana would only grow a quarter of that size. If you can see in the picture , they have already put braces to support the weight of the growing banana. They even dig up the ground because it is almost kissing the dirt. Too bad it didn’t stand long enough for me to take a picture of it myself because it already started to ripen and they had to harvest it.
This is the variety where you have to boil or make banana fritters but because there little and way plenty, best bet of cooking for this is boiling. I have seen banana hearts starting to shoot up and grown so I hope I can see the again this long when I come back for vacation.
