I was waiting for my flight back to Manila in Puerto Princesa, Palawan when I decided to walk around the departure waiting area due to boredom. Then I saw this sign
I’ve seen a lot of noni fruits on my travels around the country, mostly in off-the-beaten path beaches but this is the first time I saw that they make it as juice.
I ordered one (1) Noni Juice for 140 Pesos. A bit hurtful for my budget since I’ve almost spent it on my trip to El Nido.
Since I was bored and there were no other customers lined up, I decided to talk to the baristas. They were fun to talk to and very kind. We were talking and laughing until I curiously asked if the Noni Juice was good. Suddenly, there was this awkward silence from all the baristas. That gave me the cue to brace myself for this drink.
When I arrived at home I told my parents about it and they said that Noni is actually a drank to help diabetes and other sickness just like the billboard above says.
How did it taste like? Yucky! Not my cup of tea. Just a sip from it would define it as medicinal drink because it tasted like medicine.
All along I thought I could finish my Palawan Noni Juice but I could not.
Was it worth it? Yes! It was worth the try. At least when I die I know how a Noni Juice tastes like. I just wish I don’t get sick so that doctors would not require me to drink it.
