Food Trip For The Day: Tikoy & Lumpiyang Shanghai
Our neighbor gave us a little snacks for this afternoon. For those who aren't aware, Filipinos eat about three times a day (with rice) and two to three times a day snacks and we are talking about heavy snacks here (laughs). We usually eat breakfast at 6 or 7 am but at 10 am, we have a morning snack and after lunch at 12 noon we have an afternoon snack at 3 or 4pm. Finally, after dinner at 7 or 8pm, we also have a midnight snack just before we go to bed!
But because of severe poverty, not many Filipinos could be able to eat atleast three times a day. That's the ugly truth about that. And for those Filipinos who are figure conscious, they eat three to five times a day, but they only eat light meals.
It was strange though because I've been dealing people from other parts of the world and some of them eat like twice or once a day! I don't know how they could bear NOT TO EAT like people who does three times a day. Anyway, people aren't the same anywhere.
The featured snacks today are tikoy or the Chinese New Year's cake and lumpiyang shanghai or the spring rolls. They are both Chinese-Filipino dish.
