who knew…

Who knew that rice could take on so many forms.

One thing I have learned here in Manila is if you are going to have a meal, you are going to have rice. Everything else is a snack. Also, I am getting used to the eating schedule here in the Philippines:

  • breakfast
  • merienda (morning snack)
  • lunch
  • merienda (afternoon snack)
  • dinner

Last week, we had some visitors in our office, and I was able to try another unique dish using rice. The most interesting rice dish I tried was some sort of purple rice paste wrapped in a banana leaf. The shape resembled something like a tamale, but it tasted like a stale raisin. So far, I have had some really good food, but this particular rice concoction was not my favorite.
