-a sour soup. a distinct Filipino comfort food for the soul. as unique as its people. as diverse as its culture. a blend of ingredients prepared to its sour perfection, exciting the palate, soothing the nerves, rousing the senses, bringing back memories of scenic greens, warm sun, blue waters, and the solace of home.

snail mail.

i can't sail
and i can't bail
if there's only a rail
to follow thy trail.

my heart's in ail,
think i need a round of ale
without thee
oh my world's a pale.

can't you see,
my passion's not stale?
the depths,
it's over hill and dale.

if there's only a gale or
even a whale
to bring me to thee
in an exhale.

hail, if i can stop rhyming
words ending in ale and ail
lo, this is just to put into scale
how i think of thee
without fail.
