After our impromptu shopping at Converse Outlet, my brother, sister and niece proceeded to Marikina Market to buy the street foods that we’ll be having for dinner.
I told my brother I was getting hungry and made it clear that I don’t want Jollibee nor McDonald’s burger, to my niece’s dismay. I’d prefer ‘turo-turo’ food rather than hamburgers. Turo-turo literally means “point point” in Tagalog, where you point what dish you want.
Lunch was done and we’re ready to go shop for food. Then it started raining, ugh. I had no choice but to stay with my niece outside a convenience store and let my brother and sister do the shopping. I wanted to go with them to take photos of the various street foods for sale. Oh well, next time.
Below are the photos of the street foods that my brother fixed for dinner.
“When people wore hats and gloves, nobody would dream of eating on the street. Then white gloves went out of style and, suddenly, eating just about anything in the street became OK.”
