We stopped by in Pacific Place, an Asian mall, for lunch as well as to buy a vinegar (“sukang Iloko) from Northern Luzon, Philippines. I ordered sashimi and sushi, my favorite Japanese food, for the main course and halo-halo, a Filipino dessert, for my sweet treat.
While I was waiting for my halo-halo order, I was able to sales talk a Chinese guy in buying a kare-kare, a Filipino dish, in that food stall. At first, he was hesitant because it’s beef, but he can’t seem to resist it because he kept asking me if it’s really good. Eventually, he gave in.
When he saw the halo halo that I bought, he also ordered three cups. Ha! I should have asked for a commission from the owner eh?
Anyhow, my nephew, Rhajz sat four tables away from us because the table that we were currently occupying was too small. I was eyeing the chicken feet he bought and when I was about to join him,when we saw a pretty lady shared the table with him. To give them privacy, I stay put on my sit.
His mom and I kept laughing because Rhajz was blushing tremendously and he can’t seem to eat properly because of the pretty lady. True enough, when he joined our table, the one serving of chicken feet was left untouched. He said he was too shy to eat it in front of the pretty lady.
And the clincher? The pretty lady is pregnant. Ha! Too bad.. so sad.. for Rhajz.
