Passing Afternoon

A girl with a curly hair pays a bunch for a hair rebond while a girl with a straight her gets a perm. When it's pouring rain, one wishes for sunshine but when the sun is shining so bright, one misses the cold rainy day. Life is complicated as it has already been. When I was in the Philippines, I crave for Italian dishes, Japanese bento or a greasy Chinese food in a take out box. And now that I am miles from my homeland, I am missing Filipino foods.

A nearby store sells sweet potato for a $2.99 a kilo. Sweet potato or " kamote " in Filipino. For a second, I was battling with the thought whether to fry it with melted sugar on top or just boil it. It was actually a no brainer, of course I opted for the healthier option and the easiest one.    P1014820 P1014821 P1014822 P1014827

I cleaned it, drowned in water and brought it to boil. Easy peasy!

P.S. This is the first time I have actually made this in my entire life. Don't judge me.

    1. Suprisingly sweet, sweeter than the ones I used to have in the Philippines.

    2. It would be lovely too if you bake kamote bread out of it.

    3. it would be if you'll share the recipe.

  2. I'm judging you... kamote lang... hehehe! sarap yan sa nilagang baka... yum yum yum... enwies, it cud make fart big time... hehehe

    1. really? i have tried banana in nilagang baka but not kamote.
