last december, miss iggy checked out the backyard at fortuitous faery's grandfather's house in polomolok, south cotabato (philippines) to admire the plants and trees that grow abundantly in it.
she stumbled upon a tree bearing carambola or star fruit. in tagalog, this fruit is known as "balimbing." when you slice this fruit cross-wise, it's shaped like a star.
the word "balimbing" has evolved in the philippines to refer to a person with suspect loyalty, an infidel, multi-faceted, like the way its namesake fruit is shaped. don't be one!
