New Year’s Shopping

Koreans shopping for seafood at Jalgachi Market today

Noryangjin Fish Market

This one is an exclusively seafood market. A big one. No such sort exist in the Philippines where seafood here are sold in a specific section of the palengke, or at some corner of the talipapa. So at Noryangjin Fish Market with all its assortment of marine edibles where two-thirds of those I cannot identify, it was a wonderment to be inside, ogling unhurriedly at each edible curiosity, and hearing the din from the collective voices of the fishmongers. Obviously, they can tell that I was just an observer and not a potential customer, but I felt at ease because the ajummas and ajeossis don’t seem to mind, and they seem to understand that it was just a field trip of sort to me.

Saturday Snapshots: Bicycle Seafood Vendor

Bicycle seafood vendor with umbrella doing his daily rounds

Mr. Fish Vendor would make rounds in the village daily. He will always have three choices of fresh seafood on his cargo bicycle. There’s always shrimp, while the two other tubs would contain fish and other kinds of seafood. His favorite color must be red as he always don red shirt and his three tubs are all in red color.

Three choices of seafood and what's available today are shrimps as usual, squid, and Hasa Hasa fish
