Hingpit


Mango and Sikwate

The precious cooked budbud pilit was evenly allocated among three families.  Precious since many Cebuanos, in my neck of the woods, have attempted and struggled to reproduce what I call the traditional budbud, the Cebuano version.

Mango and sikwate are the crucial partners of budbud.  Mango season in our area runs from October to November, a long way to wait yet.  The stash of tablea  from my visits in Manila looked dry and unattractive but I was not confident of the freshness of my hoard.  I could whip something up — a hot chocolate with milk, cream and eggyolk or tablea with milk.

The decision was unequivocal — I opted for the easy and lazy option.  Grabbing the sugar container was quicker and sprinkling my budbud with it was gratifying.  My ‘naturalized’ Cebuano husband wanted more.
