One of the perks of living in an island province is the abundance of fresh produce from the sea.
For example, here is a bowl of steaming halaan soup, a kind of seashell, one among the many sold in the tiangge. Ultra fresh, the soup is so sweet. Not sickening sugary sweet but sweet sweet. In Tagalog, manamis-namis. The best part? Only 60 pesos a whooping kilo.
But where's the soup in that bowl? Well, uhh... looks like somebody couldn't resist sampling it before taking the picture. ::slurp:: Ahh. Heavenly. Or, oceanly, if you like.
