LP 4.5: Puto Bungbong
I am so happy visiting Jeff's site for he's posting photos of things he sees while on vacation in Manila. One of those is this photo of the puto bungbong.
As you all know, puto bungbong is a Filipino delicacy associated with Christmas. During early dawn of the Christmas season in the Philippines, foods are abound in the streets. For after the morning mass called "Simbang Gabi", (note: during my childhood days, the simbang gabi were celebrated in the evenings) people who attend mass are welcome outside the church with an array of food to eat that are all affordable.
My favourite then was the puto bungbong. Not only that I liked its colour of purple for it was made from purple yam, the shredded coconut with white sugar or at times white sugary sauce tasted heaven on my mouth. A real yummy!
With Jeff's photo of the puto bungbong, I feel I am in the Philippines eating it with a happy and contented heart. And with a vision of a purple mouth, who can beat the feeling I am having right now?
NO TO PLAGIARISM. I believe on that. We should give credit where credit is due. And so I would like to thank Jeff for giving me the go signal to use his photo of the puto bungbong.
