we are stranded at home, and compared to others who are far worse right now, as in wet and homeless, we are still thankful. we’re also a little bit wet since the ceiling has been dripping due to the incessant rains, but as long as we’ve got mind and body together, we’re okay.
the ambulant vendors are still working though. they need to work to eat for the day 😦 one of them just passed by, selling kulting mais. i know this is a corny blog right — apart from corn used as cooking ingredient, we’ve posted about cornick, sweet corn, and roasted corn. this kulting mais is one of my favorites and always brings back memories of childhood meriendas. (why is it always white? i guess it’s because it’s starchier and its flavor goes well with the grated coconut.) i guess it derived its name because the grains have already been shucked from the cob (“mekulti” in capampangan).
i never eat it with sugar. i like it with salt. (is that also how you like it?).
