Pasalubong Pinoy


A couple of days ago, I was pleased to receive our “Pinoy na Pinoy pasalubong pack” 😀 from Keith’s colleague and friend, Tito O, who just came back from his home leave in the “motherland”. 😛

Sorting through our stash of halayang ube (purple yam pudding), tempura chips (something akin to kropek or kerupuk), mango-tamarind candies (or sampaloc), among others, this is what particularly caught my eye (and tastebuds too!)…

Yes, it was sheer dessert heaven for me the minute I opened those multi-colored plastic candy wraps and dug in these delectable, oh-so-Pinoy delights!  The creamy flavor of (what tasted like) condensed milk and sugar mixed with the tender strips of macapuno (uhm…”freaky coconut”?) 😉 surely brought back all those fond and yummy memories of home (*sigh!*).

Bless you, Tito O, for bringing back Pinas to us – even for a while – with your thoughtful, delicious and sweet (in more ways than one!) pasalubongs.

  1. Uy, sarap niyan, kulay pa lang, ayos na.

    Yung tempura chips ba yung nasa orange na lalagyan? 😀

    Napaka-“alive” nga ng kulay niya and looks very appealing to eat… nakarami tuloy ako! Nag-excuse pa daw o – hehehe! 😆 Naku, yung nasa orange e “props” lang… candleholder actually ang mga yon… 😉
