|"I am speaking my mind!" Aaron exclaims, as he hits his fist on the |
conference table at the Governor's mansion.
|Spreadable Cheez Whiz,|
yummy on Pan De Sal
Aaron: I don't understand why people in the Philippines are obssesed with cheese products. Didn't you see that everywhere you went, there was cheese icecream and Cheez Whiz. Yeah, like the Felizardos also went to the Philippines, and when I went to sleepover at their house after Lowell (Folk Festival), I saw a bunch of Cheez Whiz and then I asked, why do you have so much Cheez Whiz? And then Tita K was like, "Oh we love the Cheese whiz" and I said, "O-kay."
Worms in My FoodAaron: Well I had the adobo and pancit, but I didn't really try anything else, because I didn't know what anything was.
Sierra: Why didn't you try it since you were in the Philippines?
|Dulong or Silver Fish. A popular dish from Batangas |
and Laguna. Aaron thought the freshwater fish
that makes up this delectable dish were worms!
Sierra: I think that was only her food though. That was just a certain dish.
Aaron: Well I didn't want to try anything because all I was thinking about was the worms in the food...
Sierra: Oh, Aaron...Did you think they were actually worms? Did you believe her?
Aaron: Well I, Well I thought they might actually be worms because sometimes, they're like fresh...umm...a chance that some of them have worms in them because they don't really like check every single piece, so I was like hmmm....should I eat this? It might have worms in it - I kept thinking like that. I KEPT THINKING ABOUT THOSE WORMS.
|Philippine McDonald's Menu. Meals come with either rice or spaghetti.|
Aaron: Yeah! The actual chicken thighs.
Aaron: Not like the patty but an actual piece of fried chicken. And also, they don't...and they don't have spaghetti. Yeah, the spaghetti in the Philippines is really sweet because they add lots of sugar in it. They put Italian seasoning in it but they put lots of sugar in it and banana ketchup.
Sierra: So it's not your traditional tomato sauce--
Aaron: YEAH. Banana Ketchup, which is yummy.
Aaron: Also a Ham De Sal, which is not a really good play on words...It makes kinda a weird pun.
Aaron: Because it would have been better if "HAM" was actually "HAN." Then it would have been better pun.
Sierra: But then you know it's actually made out of ham.
Aaron: YEAH, but it's still a weird pun....Like in America, they don't have puns there. They just add Mc in front of everything.
Aaron: YEAH, like McDouble, McChicken, McFlurry. They don't play on words. They just say like a chicken McDough..like um...um...like...fish McFries, Chicken McNuggets. It's WEIRD....Why do they add Mc in front of everything? In the Philippines, they play on words, but in America, they put Mc in front of EVERYTHING.
