Taboan in Cebu City - Dried Fish, Dried Mangoes, Dried Squid

One of the most memorable places you could ever visit in Cebu is Taboan. And it is not because of the beauty of the scene but because of the smell that lingers on your nose and sticks to your clothes down to your underwear. Why? Well let me give you a brief description of Taboan.

Taboan Market - Dried Fish, Squid etc

Taboan

Taboan is located around Pasil in Cebu City, a known fish port where fishermen sold bulk of freshly caught fishes. In Taboan, you can find a lot of different kinds of indigenous food stuffs, from Otap to piyaya, to banana chips, chicharon, tablea, masareal, even the chorizo, which Cebu is famous for. But Taboan is not famous for those. Taboan is famous for its dried fishes and squids, particularly, the 'danggit'. And you won't find it like how you see it in the big groceries and  supermarkets. No, they can be seen in mounds, bare for all to smell and see, thus, giving Taboan it's famous smell.


There are lots of stalls selling danggit and pusit in different sizes and flavors. There are the unsalted, marinated, saltwater washed and dried and a few other kinds I do not know of. Personally I prefer the smaller marinated version of danggit as it is crunchier and easier to cook. And since there are lots of stalls selling them, you can get to choose the cheapest if you are patient enough top roam around and look for it.

My Cousin's Visit to Taboan

When my cousin from Manila first came to Cebu, I took her to Taboan. I thought she was going to buy a lot, but it turned out that she only bought a few. We just stayed for around 20 minutes but we already acquired the smell. Yes, we really smelled like dried fishes down to our underwear.

I told her we can buy those from the grocery in the malls  at slightly higher price. However,  you couldn't exchange the money for the experience. And an unforgettable experience it certainly is.

  4. Always read the supplement labels to see if there are warnings that would make them inappropriate for you. And, of course if you have any medical conditions or take medications or other supplements it's always a good idea to speak with your doctor before starting anything new.

  5. Then Moses and Aaron fell on their faces before all the assembly of the congregation of the children of Israel. And Joshua the son of Nun, and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, which were of them that searched the land, rent their clothes: And they spake unto all the company of the children of Israel, saying, The land, which we passed through to search it, is an exceeding good land.

FREE Calls to Your Favorite Fast-food Chain on Globe Phones

In the age of mobile apps and ordering via internet, people are increasingly going from "calling" to "tapping and clicking" their fast food orders. The arrival of Honestbee, Foodpanda and just recently, Grab Food is a testament to how much this trend is growing. The visual effect these apps provide has a huge advantage over voice only "call".



In an apparent attempt to pull back some users in using the hotlines, Jollibee Group teams up with Globe Telecoms to allow free calls on their Globe handset to order from their favorite fastfood. Yes, even without a load, you can make a call to the Hotlines. Here's the promotional poster.

Just dial these numbers to order:
Jollibee - #87000 Mang Inasal - #71111 Chowking - #98888 Greenwich - #55555 Burger King - #22222

How Much Does a MRI Scan Costs in the Philippines?

My dad recently needs to have a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan for his prostate problem. So I made a little research on how much does it cost to have one. Well, turns out, it depends on many factors such as which part of the body is to be scanned. There's also this technique called "MRI with contrast" wherein the patient will be injected with a chemical to make the scan clearer. For your information this technique of adding contrast is know as Gadolinium Contrast Medium. It adds cost to the procedure but with more clarity, the more you can trust the diagnosis.

So, in my father's case, we had a Prostate MRI and I assume it's without contrast since he was never injected with the "contrast" chemicals. We got it in i-Scan Healthcare Inc here in Quezon City. The cost is 13000 Pesos. Please take not that the amount was just for the scan and the result will be read by a separate professional. Some laboratories offer this service (i.e. the reading) and t…

SCAM: My First Scam Text This Year; 850000 Pesos from GMA Kapuso Foundation

It's a brand new year for everyone, including local scammers. And despite all the efforts by PLDT and Globe Telecom to curb text message scammers, from time to time, they still creep out and show up in our inboxes. And as hard to believe as the messages of winning some great amounts of money is the fact that there are still people who believe them. I personally know someone and that scam text message triggered events that turn her life upside down. So my point is, we still need to be careful regarding these scam messages. The danger is real!


So without further ado, here's the scam message I received a few days ago. On Sunday, January 7, 2018 at exactly 3:33PM (PH time), I received this message from a certain Atty. Jhon Acosta with phone number 09552962911
