100 Strangers : Stranger No. 3

Stranger No. 3


Here comes my stranger no. 3. His name is Lito (hopefully I heard it correctly). He is food server at the hidden garden in Vigan City, Ilocos Sur. He lives at Vigan and he loves his job.

When I saw him first, he came to take the order with the usual menu card (which was pretty heavy .. may be heavier than the actual food) with lots of Ilocano food varieties. He is a guy with good physic and in Tagalog they call it “Pogi” (handsome) and friendly too. After asking about his name I asked him immediately (You know .. you should not let go the chance) if I can take a photo of him; without saying a word he posed for me right away.

I choose Longganisa and Halo Halo for breakfast as I was not too hungry and 7 am is too early for me for breakfast (I end up eating a lot actually). Now here is the funny part – I was staying in Philippines close to an year and strangely that is the first time I tried Halo Halo. It’s a very popular dessert in Philippines with the mixture of shaved ice and evaporated milk to which are added various boiled sweet beans, jelly, corn and fruits, and served in a tall glass or bowl.

Another interesting fact about “Halo Halo” is in Tagalog (Filipino local language) and if you translate in English it is “Mix Mix” – Isn’t this funny ? I just loved the name (both version) and the taste of the dessert. Don’t miss it if you are in Philippines.
