I am not so fond of eating unconventional, exotic and out-of-this world food. I don't consider myself an adventurer when it comes to eating (I just love to eat). In fact, when I like something from a certain food chain or restaurant, that's the only thing I would order for the rest of my life. Hihi. Even when traveling, I always order the "safe" foods like pork barbecue, chicken inasal and grilled fish. It's because I don't like spending on something I probably wouldn't like in the end, something that would leave me saying, "I should have ordered this or that."
Toto, on the other hand, loves to try new things. He always likes to have a taste of the house specialty. Ate Pong, his sister, loves exotic food. So on our way to Pulilan, Bulacan to attend my cousin's birthday, they couldn't stop talking about itik. Almost one year ago they had a taste of a local eatery's fried itik and they were so delighted by its taste that they considered it one of the highlights of their stay in Pulilan (lol). Itik, pato, bibi, duck, or whatever your call it, isn't exactly an exotic food in Bulacan. It's actually a common pulutan or finger food shared over bottles of beer. But for someone like me who'd rather eat chickenjoy on any day of the month, itik is exotic ;p
