Lost In The Supermarket

Hi guys!! It has been a stormy week here in MANILA lately. Well, due to my busy schedule I realized that I haven't had a chance to do some cooking for a long time which is one of my favorite things to do on spare time. YUP!! I love cooking aside from eating. He He He!! So for this blogpost I just wanted to be different a little bit. Of course PINOY WAVERS and PUNKS are very familiar with my BLOGPOST TITLE. YUP!! It's an XB Classic song from THE CLASH entitled "Lost In The Supermarket". Definitely, I didn't get lost in the supermarket and this blogpost is not really about supermarket but It's more about the "PALENGKE" in English "MARKET" specifically the "WET MARKET". I guess that recent typhoon really made the market very wet. He He He!! I went to market to buy some foodstuffs for me to cook and I decided to take some photos of these stuffs using my handy dandy cellphone as always. Well, I'm not an expert photographer but most of my photo shots here in my blog were taken by me using my cellphone. Of course you need this raw stuffs for you to cook a good FILIPINO DISH.


So here we go guys!!

ISDA (Fish)

Well, I got some HASA-HASA and GALUNGONG (G.G.) for me to fried. HASA-HASA is also good for sinigang.

MANOK (Chicken)

One of my favorite dish is TINOLANG MANOK. Whether I use Ginger or TANGLAD(Lemon Grass) or PAPAYA or SAYOTE definitely this dish is a winner especially on a rainy day.


BABOY (Pork)
BAKA (Beef)

This is for my SINIGANG NA BABOY and NILAGANG BAKA. Wheeew!! SARAP!!


HIPON (Shrimps)

Another great dish is SINIGANG NA HIPON and of course I have to include also GAMBAS.


SQUID (Pusit)

Well, PUSIT NA TUYO is another favorite of mine especially during cold and rainy seaon here in MANILA. YUP!! It's a bit expensive if you look at the budget but It's worth the meal. He He He!! As you can see that's not TUYONG PUSIT okay, I love SQUID with OYSTER SAUCE so that's why I included it. He He He!! Maybe TIYA PUSIT loves this dish too. What do you think KABAYANS?



PANG GISA ( Saute)

Of course Gisa is to saute, to cook in oil, garlic, onions, or tomatoes. This three spices adds flavor to the dishes.




TOKWA

"Anak Ng Tokwa"......Of course sarap ng TOKWA'T BABOY. Btw, the material use in making TOKWA is believe to be the same as in Plaster Of Paris use for Casting Fractured Bones. Hmmmp!! Just like the TAHO? Well, It still taste good. Ha Ha Ha!!



TALONG (Eggplant)

How to start your day with a breakfast of "TORTANG TALONG". I wonder why this is called Eggplant. A plant that lays eggs? He he he!! Well , at least the EGG and TALONG is together on TORTANG TALONG with GINILING NA BABOY.



SOTANGHON

Nothing beats a HOT SOTANGHON SOUP on a rainy day.



KANGKONG

Oooops!! That's not the big ape which is a great rival of GODZILLA. "Ang KANGKONG.... Bow!!" Great for SINIGANG NA BABOY too.





PRUTAS (Fruits)
Nothing makes it better than an after meal fruit dessert.

Well, I was not able to take pictures of all the foodstuffs that I bought in the WET MARKET which will be my meal schedule for the whole week. Hmmmp!! I guess I stimulated your appetite. Pictures of the FINISHED MEAL? Maybe next time but I'm not a CHEF that would make the dishes look good as an ART FORM. He He He!!

So before I end this blogpost of mine I uploaded the song from THE CLASH entitled "LOST IN THE SUPERMARKET" for you to listen to as a finale. This is 102 MUSIC!!

LISTEN HERE:
LOST IN THE SUPERMARKET - THE CLASH





Are you also
LOST IN THE SUPERMARKET?
or the WET MARKET?
