12 ROUND FRUITS

Shoppers crowd in front a fruit stand in Sta. Cruz, Manila on Sunday (Dec. 29, 2019) as they rush to prepare for the New Year’s tradition of serving 12 round fruits.  Longan fruit is a perfect addition to 12 round fruits to welcome the year 2020 or the Year of the Rat in Chinese tradition.  (PNA photo by Avito C.
