Look at my loot! I can't believe my luck. Two days ago, a friend and I went to the Filipino Store in Silom. I should have blogged about this right away but I was busy eating!
For someone who misses the food of home very much, this is palatal rapture.
And guess what was my appetizer for lunch today -- the blessed bagoong! (absent in the photos; fridge-tucked away) With tomatoes aplenty, my alimentary canal was probably the most indulged in the Sukhumvit 101 area today.
The sopas is for my kiddo. And I'm getting myself a big, pink fish and some veggies for the sinigang sa sampalok.
Last night I noshed on pancit canton chilli mansi.
A familiar yum that went with routine clicking on the keyboard made a very delightful evening!
That was one time I wished I had Filipino neighbors in the apartment.
The sunflower crackers and about two packets of noodles are free. But the best part really is the price. These goodies are affordable. I just love their business common sense.
They posted their address on friendster, or you can google "filipino store in Bangkok" for more info.
This sari-sari store has been existing since 2007, but because I flew home twice that year, I didn't look for it. Now that I'm not planning to be in Pinas for several months more, I am gratified to have the store within reach.
