Bulad

Bulad (dried salted fish) of superior quality is plentiful in Zamboanga City public market. Fried bulad with warm rice as accompaniment is best eaten mano mano (hand as utensil). Moreover, think of bulad as fish bacon.

Señor Pagi Vendor

This señor is selling dried pagi (stingray) at Zamboanga City public market

Upon seeing me taking snapshots of his rays, he funnily posed. This señor and the rest of them palengke folks love to have their photographs taken. This is what I’ve observed with palengke vendors anyplace, and so I oblige each time, and they were giggly happy afterwards. I never tried to ask a vendor to pose for me, they just do it, and they’ve consistently amused me.

More often than not, this sort of welcoming atmosphere gives me a chance for some cordial exchange in bisaya dialect. That’s how I usually acquire firsthand local knowledge of their trade.
