Meanwhile…

The partaking of some Cebuano fare which can only be captioned well in the local dialect, particularly:

Lami gyud ang tinowa na isda

Mao sad ang sinugba na isda

Unya apilan kining guso, kanang utan gikan sa dagat ba

image

Usahay mangita man ko ug mais kay bagay man sa tinowa

Gimingaw man ko sa ngohiong ug puso

Tangkong

Tangkong is the Visayan term (Ilonggo or Cebuano) for water spinach and known as kangkong countrywide.

Here’s a stanza from the Provincial Jail song (radio drama song) that I hear all the time in Bacolod in the past that the lyrics still in my head.

Ang amon na utan ginulot na langka, tinuktok nga tangkong bisan asin wala
Samtang naga kaon ga tulo ang luha, daw ano kasubo kung imo makita
