Palagutom Kid ate BETAMAX today. A popular Filipino street food made wholly from clotted blood of chicken that surely vampires and aswang would love. LOL! Eating blood is sometimes a religious issue. I just have been from the church this day (Sunday) and after absorbing the Words of God as spiritual food, I ate this clotted chicken blood as a physical food.
Enough for that, Palagutom Kid ate betamax once again after several years! I don't know but the idea of eating betamax never came to my mind lately. What is always programmed is eating rice and sweet desserts. Uhmmm.
The existence of this cheap street food can be linked to the obsolete huge black VHS tapes (that takes all the space of your bag) which is also called betamax during time immemorial, haha! (about 1990's, something like that). Just a warning to minors, VHS tapes could be an abbreviation that little kids may not know so never mention VHS tapes to them. That is a hard lesson in history, a subject most kids hate. LOL!
Anyway, VHS tapes (a.k.a. betamax) became popular before the existence of CD players. It's cubic structure and black color can be similar to this another betamax (the food now). So the pieces of cubes punched by a pointed stick made from bamboo can be virtually look like the VHS Tape (betamax).
I was asking the vendor if aside from blood , what other ingredients have they added here, she replied while exxageratedly opening her mouth so wide with "vetsin." By the way, do you know "vetsin?" Not because it is called vetsin, it is already bad so you don't need to remove the "sin" from vet-sin, chos!
Vetsin is another casual term for Monosodium Glutamate, a cheap seasoning made popular by Ajinomoto. Ask your mother about it.
Now, betamax is more popularly known now as a food and not a piece of technology that has been long forgotten with the advent of digital age. By the way, the food I ate only costs 4 pesos! So cheap, makes me palagutom more!
