DAY #5: OUR LOVE AFFAIR WITH FOOD

Hi Friends,

Do not let my petite frame fool you.

Buffet tables are my kind of happy place. (Spell “rice”)

Oh no! :p

Okay, so let’s talk about food for a second.

Food can be our sweetest friend or our bitter enemy. Our biggest pleasure or our greatest struggle. Or both. For many of us, we have different views on food, our next meal, the dessert teasing in front of us. Each gastronomic experience can either end in a satisfied burp or to the toilet for the girl plagued with bulimia. No matter our foodie circumstance is, it is undeniable that there are certain dishes that will always elicit a resounding YES, a stamp of approval, sometimes, no matter how full we already are.

So today, I will be sharing with you the food that I couldn’t resist; I never for a single moment thought of denying myself from esp when offered.

Here they are…

1.. Lanzones (“langsat” in Thai) – Irresistible. I’m drooling already. I can eat a pail-full til I’m ‘impacho’ levels. I’m not kidding, okay? I can never overeat lanzones. There used to be displays in Carrefour a few weeks back but they have detected my cravings and decided to be out-of-stock each time we visit (which is like 2-3x a week). Please Carrefour, restock now okay!

2. Sinabawang clams – Best when fresh and cooked by Kuya Roger, my brother-in-law. When their housemate Parikoy set out early to the beach and came back later with a net bag full of fresh clams (~1-2 kg), Kuya Roger fed a full-house, feeling satiated thereafter in every sense of the word. Needless to say, it was a homemade culinary blockbuster. I’d be willing to travel to Abu Dhabi often if only to stuff my face with rice and a steaming-hot clams stew.

Haayyy…lami jud!

3. Sinigan na salmon – I enjoy sour food, this including sour soup. And salmon. Oh salmon. Can’t begin to describe the joy you bring to my life. Huhuhu…

N.B. Although I have unwanted belly bulge now (“buy-on” in Bisaya), I have managed to fend off the fat (mostly) because somehow I have trained my taste towards the green, leafy, fresh and unpackaged while having an indifferent, unfriendly attitude towards soda, canned goods, the sugary and the fatty. It took some time but I discovered that the rewards are worth the self-discipline. BUT, BUT, BUT I flunk big time on the “exercise” part, hence the belly bulge. Any fitness ideas for a lazy beginner?
