cebu goodies - front page

During the past few months, I received some of my favorite food items from Cebu City: drieddanggit (rabbit fish), siomai (pork dumplings) sa Tisa, a pack of Kwong Bee Pork Sausage,Zubuchon lechon flakes, and Choco-Oatmeal bars and a Dulce de Leche cupcake from Leona Cakes and Pastries. All these have brought back good memories of Cebu and have made my day in one way or the other.

Except for the Kwong Bee sausage, everything was familiar to my tastebuds. I honestly did not know what to do with the sausages until last week. I discovered that each tasted like a deliciously cured ham slice. The chopped sausages were then added to my otherwise humble sauteed vegetables which elevated the dishes to whole new levels.

I remember that there was a time where I only ate just one choco-oatmeal bar for dinner. I was then trying to lose weight back then.

The danggit came as a delightful surprise from JP. He also included in the LBC package a copy of the wonderful videos that he made for Breakthrough 2011, an annual event of the Cebu City Alliance Church. I sorely missed this program due to a delayed flight. I promised him this rather belated thank you post for his thoughtfulness and generosity.

The same also goes to Mhy, Cyel, Lorie and Khonie for the other items above. I could only imagine how some of them creatively squeezed an oily package in their perfectly organized backpacks or balanced a cupcake on both laps so as not to damage its delicate frosting during the flight. I now have a deep appreciation for the thought and the effort that goes with everypasalubong be it from Cebu or elsewhere.

To all of you, daghang salamat sa makausab!
