Dry Goods

image

Usually, I’m drawn to the dry goods section in a palengke particularly the native stuff. Though some of the old school containers and implements can still be found in someĀ  supermarkets, yet I’d rather buy from these palengke folks.

Closer look at the kernels. When boiled, the white core will just easily slide out when removing the skin by hand

Boiled pili kernels taste like edamame

Vetsin Condiment

image

Walking aimlessly in Naga streets one can see several kinalas eateries around the city and in one of those I took cover from rain, had a bowl of kinalas and noted that they have Ajinomoto vetsin condiment in the tables. It’s not usual to have vetsin as table condiment here in Philippines but it was a common sight in the humble eating tables in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah.

Store in the Wall

In Naga centro particularly around the wet and dry market building, one can notice these rectagular shelves attached to a wall column that serve as modular stores for bangketa sellers. Looks like it was provided by the city government to minimize the spaces occupied in the bangketa.

Shelves are not enough for all the goods
