LJ’s Ice Cold Tuba

I’ve drank about 500 ml of cold tuba that’s sold per liter in 7-Up reused bottle at 50 pesos in this carinderia somewhere in Nueva Ecija. I don’t have a snapshot of it but this sweet liquid looks like sugarcane juice and sort of a cross between sugarcane and coconut water in taste.

Peddling Palm Sap


Smells like tuba says my fellow Filipino companion. So from the smell of it, those cylindrical receptacles contained palm sap sold as beverage by this cycling vendor. I tried to ask what they call it, but the Khmer guy not understanding what I said in English just smiled at me, so I smiled back and took picture of his bemused evening countenance.
