It's a gorgeous day in the Philippines,
cool breezes from the Siberian winter wafting in,
but unseasonably bright and sunny,
a true harbinger of an early summer,

and for us Pinoys,
with summer comes the fiesta, and
with the fiesta comes the lechon!!!

It just so happened that my main task today
was to treat my favorite clients at the
De Los Santos-STI College of Nursing,

and my nursing education group at the
Universal Worker Review Center,

to Lechon and Pansit respectively.

1st up,
a visit to La Loma to find the lechon
with the crispiest skin:

After taste tests at PingPing's and Mang Tomas,
this expert decided on another old reliable:

I chanced upon the "Liempo Cut",
always the tastiest part of the pig,
and the skin was crisperfection!

Needless to say,
the Mila's Lechon was greeted with orgasmic squeals
when I arrived at DLS-STI!

Up next,
this nondescript hole-in-the-wall
right across St. Luke's Hospital on E.Rod:

Banang's serves
in our metropolis,

but they are even more famous for this,
a noodle classic called the LECHON BIHON,
oodles of pansit showered with, what else?
