Barangay Laoac, Pangasinan, Philippines, March 2020
With reduced movements for foreigners during COVID-19, impossible to take photos. Fortunately, there is a very nice little place near the house in the Barangay Laoac (subdivision within the cities) that I will make you discover.
Corn is grown to eat grilled. In this province, the Filipinos love corn cooked on the fire. Others dry it to add to the meal or eat it grilled. The corn kernels are removed from the cobs and dried in the sun. On some roads or on flat concrete surfaces, you will see huge carpets of corn. You have to turn them over and over to dry them completely. The ears are collected and put into the fire to prepare meals. Nothing is lost.
The pig is king in the Philippines with the hens. A family celebration is organized around a good fire on which spit cooked with a pig stuffed with vegetables. Obélix would have greatly appreciated.
I thank the whole family of Marlyn who received me royally during these troubled times.
