Top Five Greatest Childhood Snack Past-times (by Louise ?)

5) Dipping 5 pieces of fishballs on a stick to either sweet, sour, or spicy

4) Chasing a man with a cup and 5 pesos whos carrying a pair of steel buckets hanging on his shoulder yelling “Taho”out in the streets

3) Craving for late night snack and waiting for a man out on the street calling out “Balut” or “Penoy”

2) Bringing over 10 pesos in the nearest “Tindahan” to buy 5 pesos worth of “pan de sal” and the rest for a liter of Coke.

1) Going accross the street when you crave for grilled “Chicken Innards”, or grilled “chicken liver”(not my choice really) for famous pulutan for my uncles and relatives.

    Three possible labels for fishball dips: “My Wasweet”, “Hot Mama”, and “May Asim Pa”.
    as for isaw, a good name to give the stand would be “Delicious Chicken spare Parts and Accessories”, courtesy of Pol Medina Junior of Pugad Baboy fame.

    4. “Scramble” or ice scrambled. Its flavored crushed ice, topped with “moo” chocolate syrup and powdered milk. P5.00. Cheap and refreshing.
    3. “Sweet corn”,”Hebi”,”Rin bee”, etc. These are really cheap (solo) chips sold in the tindahan.
    2. Banana and Kamote Cue. Caramelized rootcrop. Pinoy version of meatless barbeque.
    1. “Abortion” or “Kwekwek” (or so they call it as such). Its a quail egg dipped in orange-colored batter, deep fried. Served best with peppered/salted vinegar or special gravy and only sold in the kalye.
