‘Ngaon ta! Kain tayo!

How many have you been greeted by your neighbor every time you pass by their house? If you’re a poor Pinoy (like I used to be… just joking I’m still poor haha), chances are you’d love to eat whatever your neighbor offers… like these foods:

1. Sardinas


You can add soy sauce if it isn’t salty enough for you!


2. Going to the beach? Here, bring some of these!

Rice with ginamos? I used to dig that when I was a kid! (It’s not that I don’t like it grandma, it’s just that it has no nutrition value at all!)


4. No baon? No problem!
