Last Thursday, my sis and I went to the old neighborhood where we grew up to check out the local market for supplies and fabrics. Our aunt promised really low prices (and we got them!)

It was literally like time travel as we found ourselves in a fully physically renovated but culturally intact place of our past. We had lunch in one of the market stalls and to cap the day off I had traditional iced dessert at a nearby fastfood.

rice porridge (lugaw) with bits of egg, pork, garlic, spring onion, tofu. paired with tofu and pork cubes swimming in a soy and vinegar dip. our aunt had the palabok noodles with egg and shrimp.
iced dessert (halo-halo) of mixed preserved fruits, jelly, leche flan (custard) and ice cream
