My brother, who just came from a youth camp in Baguio, and also had a chance to visit Vigan, came home today with pasalubongs. Good thing he really bought some because he’s been there for almost a month that he even missed my birthday, but thankful that he didn’t forget to greet me. :)
The one on the photo caught my eye because it’s a bamboo, or something like that and because I am curious, I asked what that thing is. Mama told me that there’s something in it, and it’s kakanin. It’s from Vigan. I don’t really like kakanins, but as I say, I’m curious, so I tried it, and it really tastes good.
I have few questions and I hope any of you could answer me…
- Have you tried this? What do you call this?
- What is kakanin and pasalubong in English? I keep om thinking, but I guess there’s no direct translation of those words.
