This Little Piggy Went to Tiangge

Posted on October 21, 2009 by under Travel.    

I went to the tiangge with mom at least a couple of times. When I say tiangge, I mean the Tanjay public market. That’s where most people buy their meats, fruits, and vegetables. Mom said that Mama Iyay used to take her to the tiangge also when she was younger. Now instead of her and Mama Iyay, her and I are going to the market.

The first time we went, we bought stuff at Tip-Tip Store. We went at like 5 AM (because we were still somewhat messed up as a result of the time difference) and none of the other stores were open. It was rather fortuitous, though, because the owner of Tip-Tip Store Manong Lito is a childhood friend of Tito Rocky, mom’s older brother.

The freshly slaughtered meat was a little unnerving, but it didn’t keep me from eating pork. That’s true pork love for you. LOL.



I think the funniest part about going to the market was running into the creepy crazy woman who told mom, “Wala kay kalaki!” LOL. She also commented on mom’s “sininang putol” because she thought mom looked partially clothed, I guess. Mom and I busted up laughing. We laughed all the way back to the house.
