French Mum, humanitarian, restless explorer and doer on sabbatical in Cebu (Philippines): one Attila in each arm, I am exploring the “toddlers safe” corners of the region, while trying to keep some room for Me.
Dry fishes are a typical Filipino delicacy. The best ones are said to come to Bantayan, the bulad/buwad (dried fish) island. They are the iconic products of the market, spilling over huge bags and stalls in all colors and shapes..
It does not take long before they all disappear, Pinoy eat them dropped in vinegar or in soups, with rice of course.
Trying those fishes is a must do when you are in the Philippines, as mandatory as singing in a karaoke or having a San Miguel. I must admit I haven’t yet. We always go to the market by 7AM, far too early for me to even think about getting one close to my mouth!
First timers, make sure you cover your nose so you can really appreciate the visit. And if you don’t feel like tasting them, at least make sure you buy some as Pasalubung (souvenir) to bring back to a Filipino friend. Success guaranteed!
Those fishes used to remind me of the golden little ones that Colonel Aureliano Buendia was making in “100 Years of Solitude”. He would forge them and melt them, and repeat the process all over again, like a mantra..
Those fliers are everywhere: elevators, lobbies.. We just received a letter forbidding us to water plants and informing us on the water restrictions for the month. The letter concluded :”water, please treat it like liquid gold“.
When I think that I used to take baths in liters of potable water back in Europe…
