Being at the Philippine Independence Festival this weekend so reminded me of my childhood. Pork barbecue, many kinds of pancit (noodles), longanisa (sausage), kare-kare (a meat stew containing green beans, eggplant, tripe in a peanutty sauce, eaten with bagoong, a salted and fermented fish or shrimp paste). I indulged in Halo-Halo, a particular favorite of mine from days of yore. Alas, there is a infamous home video of me. Wearing nothing but diapers, I was sitting on the coffee table with a cup of halo-halo, slurping it down like no tomorrow. It dribbled down my face, making quite a mess of myself.
