GenSan Market

I was able to visit General Santos City, the Tuna capital of the
Philippines and home of the famous Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao.
The trip was sponsored by my sister. Since she can't leave her dog,
Pasta, to visit us I was the one who visited them.

Food lovers that we are, the trip won't be complete without
visiting the market. General Santos City or GenSan has 3 major
market. Malakas market, Lagao market and the main one along
Acharon St. I was only able to visit Malakas and the main market.

Here are some pictures during my visit:
