Haha. Igorot/iCordillera food made it to the pages of Canada’s National Post courtesy of Sarah Efron who introduced them as “intriguing, disgusting and morally-dubious foods”. I’ll take disgusting because that’s a personal thing and she’s got a right to be disgusted with any food under the sun– heck a good friend is disgusted with tomatoes — but “morally dubious”? Seriously, Sarah? Morally dubious?
If there’s such a thing as morally dubious food, I think the most morally dubious would be hamburger the main ingredient of which is taken from the carcass of slaughtered cows — an animal very sacred to our brother and sister Hindus — which were butchered (hacked, beheaded, then “chop-chopped”) by professional animal killers.
Maybe some of you noticed our blog’s new domain name, eh? It’s courtesy of Tina of My Good Finds. She actually reserved it a year ago and thankfully maintained it as I dilly-dallied whether to use the domain or not. Thanks Tina for the free registration :-). [You actually shamed me to blog here more often hehehe.]
If you have a link to the old domain name, it should be automatically redirected to this new domain. But I would appreciate it if you change the URL address so our new domain will have some incoming links. Thanks.
Let’s expand the kind of songs we usually upload here and listen to this song by Samingad, a Taiwanese aboriginal singer of the Puyuma tribe. According to youtube commenters, the English title of this song is “Wild Fire”.
Samingad is reportedly more famous in Japan than in her native Taiwan. You can read more about her here.
