Foodwise, a success!

Since I got back, I got to eat my favorite food:

  • my mom’s Kare-Kare
  • a lot of Sungee ripe mangoes
  • Circles buffet
  • Corned beef and Pinoy chocolate (I call it tsokolate eh) at Antonio’s breakfast – Thanks to Grass!
  • Inihaw and pakbet
  • Ceasar salad with an ultimate mudslide at TGIF
  • Cafe Breton and more breton – it’s become comfort food for Jorey and me

Everyone should let their helpers watch the Dugo-dugo video.

I think a simple awareness campaign like this one can help a lot. Walang maloloko kung walang magpapaloko. :)

Proud to be Filipino

Yeah so you’ve probably watched the dancing Filipino prisoners on Youtube by now. I personally found it funny and entertaining – the dancing and the choice of songs. It’s soo 80′s – Thriller and Radio Gaga? I think a LOT of Filipinos could really relate to the 80′s.

I saw that video on an Indian News channel here in Singapore while buying Hello Panda from the store behind our building. It even made it’s way to Perezhilton.com.

But I find something off with how Filipinos react to the video. Continue reading
