buko kayo dyan!

bought some buko juice from the mall recently and i was suprised that a medium bottle of pure juice costs 40 bucks! that would be equivalent to 8 whole buko that the vendors with their karitons sold when we were much younger.

i was always amazaed at how they used that knife-looking tool (said to be made from carabao horns) to scoop the whole ball of coconut meat out of the shell, with the juice not spilling at all!

    i'm having a moment of deja vu here … didn't we talk about the carabao horns just recently? LOL! anyway, you're making me long for fresh buko juice. i think i already told you the bottled or canned ones we got here are sugared and the meat is “old,” not quite “ngungot” (ready for pressing) but definitely not think and supple.

    BB, next time try to do a video of the vendor with the carabao horns! 😀

    i think we talked about carabao meat recently (the one in soup). i can't remember the horns… though i'm sure we've talked about it before 🙂
