This morning I got in a cab to go to Market Market! which is kind of like a mall + market + Singaporean-style hawker center in the Bonifacio Global City, which is Manila’s attempt at creating a clean, modern, orderly city. However, that lofty aspiration does not stop somebody from selling me a longsilog breakfast without any sinagnag. They should call it the long-hmph-log breakfast. Hmph.
There is a store in the mall called “Maldita.” Rough translation: the damn girl. Damn her!
I bought some liempo just so I could get a side order of lato, this seaweed with bulbs, that tastes like salmon roe.
Later: my niece’s big birthday party!
