Eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, 2NE1. Hallow hallow! Halo-halo! HelloHelloHello!!! I'm back with the sound of K-Pop! If you are a fan of K-Pop lollipop, I know you know what I was singing at the first line. Once again one more time repeat it again twice once more repeatedly! Come on sing! Eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, 2NE1! Eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, you gonna leave me alone, tama ba? lols! I love Sandara Park by the way highway superhighway far away!
Palagutom Boy reached the mountain town of Nagbukel in the province of Ilocos Sur in search for food. He wandered in the forest until he saw an ermitanyo. The ermitanyo asked Palagutom Boy (P.B.) if he likes his Fita. I said yes sure! The ermitanyo was the one who gave me the fita, whew! The ermitanyo also gave me a drink, and irkkk! Starbucks! lols.
Anyway. Yes! I found a rice cooker. But take note, it was not run by electricity. It is a rice cooker bamboo! hihi. Using fire from 3 large stones with burning materials at the center, these bamboos were filled with uncooked rice. It was set to fire and viola! After 20 minutes, the rice is cooked inside the bamboo!
So after the rice was cooked inside these bamboos, what do you expect? Of course remove the rice from the bamboo and you know what, it was the most aromatic rice I have ever smelled. The water used came from a fresh spring and the bamboo can emit an aroma that blend with the rice.
The species of bamboo used in cooking the rice is locally called as "bolo." Bolo grows near the waterfalls where we are cooking that time. It grows in the forest where I wandered, lols.
So this is my mountain experience. This is what P.B. ate and discovered in the mountains of Nagbukel town. Have you witnessed this kind? Have you tried eating a rice from the Bamboo Rice cooker? Well well, baboosh! Palagutom Boy will be back again some time after matutunan ko nang mangaso ng mga hayop dito sa kabundukan! Whew!
