They never saw a chicken waiting to be eaten like this. The honey make all the spices stick to the chicken.

@Mike.... yeah, just like in the families..... Always made my famous fish dish, the locals call it Kano-Wahoo. I the cut the fillets into small pieces, boil a bit (2 minutes), beforehand fried onion and spices, slightly boiled potatoes are mashed a bit with butter (not much), lays the Wahoo at the bottom of a oven tray, cover it with the mash, fry for 30 minutes. I reckon each serving cost about 80-100 peso to make, a tray makes 12 portions. The idea of NOT having rice for dinner scares the locals. My housekeeper always stays away while I cook, but this one she loves to eat. Funny potatoes are so expensive here.@Mike.... yeah, just like in the families.....

I once ordered 100 kilos of Potatoes from the northern part of Luzon - price 45 peso per kilo. Transport done by relatives to the neighbor family (o route), still I gave 400 peso and 5 kilo. Heavy price, but compared to the local market, still cheaper. Local potatoes are rare here and are of low quality. From time to time American Potatoes can be bought in Manila, usually at 70-100 peso per kilo. This 95 kilos where used in 1 week for the Kano-Wahoo (and some fries made the American way. In Luzon farmers potatoes cost about 30-40 on the market. Mine where "selected items" meaning I went for a specific size and weight. Makes it way easier to process. Sadly have no photos of finished dish.I once ordered 100 kilos of Potatoes from the northern part of Luzon - price 45 peso per kilo.

It's the Beercan Chicken for sure. Got the recipe in good old Tennessee in 1980. Refined it with the Jack Daniels Whiskey when it came to the market (due to the honey used in the original recipe). I New York they call it "The Drunken Chicken". I also once made it in France (at my sons place). Had to repeat few days later.It's the Beercan Chicken for sure.

"They'll invite strangers in for a meal..." This reminds me of when I was in my mid-twenties and me and a school friend were travelling through Asia and we were in the Philippines in Cataclan (or Calibo can't remember) and we ended up walking in some village and these guys who were of a similar age invited us over, they were drinking whiskey and invited us to share some. So we had a coupe of glasses each then one of them (who had started to claim he was paralyzed) said something to my firend who gave hima funny look, then turned to me and said "they went us to pay for it"all of a sudden they were all fuckin looking, so we gave them a little bit of money and immediatly stood up and left, they had turned what would have been a nice gesture into a fuckin cash grab. So now when ever a group of flips invite me for a beer I always say no as I Know the cash grab will come out again."They'll invite strangers in for a meal..."

How many of you have been persuaded to become wedding sponsors or Ninang/Ninong for weddings and christening? Beware of this Filipino custom. It's another way to get into your wallets because you are expected to give (generously!) and every year, as in Christmas, birthdays. Flips usually prefer politicians, or high ranking Police or Military officers. Kanos are the obvious next preference :) No such thing as free lunch in da Failipines. Of course it's also likely that you are being asked just because you are so guapo! :)How many of you have been persuaded to become wedding sponsors or Ninang/Ninong for weddings and christening?

Tuco. "you never get any veggies just the meat and rice" When you eat white rice and meat together without any other food with fiber such as a good portion of vegetable your insulin level will shoot up. Here is a video about this phenomenon. https://youtu.be/4aFxzAZdv7YTuco.

Anyone ever notice that if you tell them you don't want rice with your meal they act offended?

Is that what that "look" is? They would always give me some kind of "look" when I declined rice.
