So, Medy (my Filipina friend) picked me up around 9 AM and off we droved down to the “crazy town”… [that’s what Medy’s little girl, Maya calls Portland].
Oh well, when you are in a foreign land and miss the company of another person of the same race, culture, taste, language and orientation… where do you think you will go? Of course, Asian Store! Yup, we went Asian Store hopping yesterday and went crazy over those Pinoy products that we miss so much. We were like little kids in a candy store going “gaga” over the bagoong… toyo… Mama Sita mixes… Mang Tomas Sarsa ng Litson… Lucky Me Pancit Canton… Nagaraya Craker Nuts… and the list go on and on.
We went home by noontime and I was happy with my loot. I have a stock-full of pinoy goods and I am happy, indeed.
