Adventures with Jonah
What a wonderful week I’ve had! Jonah and I went on the start of a rainy cloudy day adventuring which turned in to a fluffy cloudy day with lots of color.
|Jonah knows the best places to go|
We rode a jeepney to Cubao and I got a simple cell phone. It was cheap and only calls and sends texts. I’m hoping this will let me be connected to ward members (and maybe - if he turns on his phone, Jeffrey). Then we went off to try a traditional Filipino fmeal that you eat with your hands – basically it is bar-be-que chicken and a pile of rice with a sauce you make from soy sauce and teeny limes and in Jonah’s case she added a chili pepper – tiny and red very hot! The rice is balled up with a little “chicken oil” that you sprinkle on and then pull chicken off and add to the rice ball then dip quickly in the sauce and eat it all with your fingers. Traditionally they serve it on a big banana leaf. In this restaurant they give you different plate colors so that those with the white plates can raise their hand and be served unlimited rice. They also gave everybody complimentary bowls of sinigang soup (I am really liking this slightly sour soup). There is a place to wash your hands before and after you eat.
|Good place to go!|
|Note the jars at the top of vinegar, oil, and soy sauce - I don't know what the vinegar was for - maybe a different sauce mix.|
|Squeeze the little limes, add soy sauce and in Jonah's case she snapped open these chili's - hot!|
|I basically figured out how to hold rice and chicken|
|Jonah of course was the expert and could use her thumb to slide it altogether into her mouth!|
Then we rode off for our next adventure.......
