Your Key Words, Part III

In our first blog, we did some write-ups on the search keywords of visitors who found us via search engines. In case you missed them, here’s the links to said posts: Part I and Part II. Now, here’s the third installment of our attempt to elaborate on the keywords/questions of blog visitors.

1. “What is bubod”: Bubod is the yeast that you add to the sticky rice to produce rice wine. Kumbaga, it is the fermenting agent. I think it’s made from sugarcane but I’m not 100% sure. Do you also call this fermenting agent “bubod” in your language?

2. “Most richest man in Benguet”: I’ve no idea. Maybe Nashman, Lovelyn, Page 101, and FBI know the answer. Sino sa tingin ninyo ang pinakamayaman sa Benguet? If by “richest” we mean both rich in terms of material wealth and good reputation, maybe Congressman Dangwa?

3. “achievements of congressman elias c. bulut”: The Apayao Congressman has a congressional page where you can see what he is doing in Congress. I would think that his appointment as chair of the Committee of Agrarian Reform is quite an achievement. You might also want to check out an earlier post on the bills filed by Cordillera Representatives here.

4. “do igorots use underwear?”: Heh, but of course.

5. “baguio cozy place to stay”: I stay with friends and family whenever I’m in Baguio so I don’t have a clue. But I think Liza would be the authority on this subject.

6. “how to cook a sayote by its self”: Simple lang, peel it, dice it, then dunk it in a boiling water. Add salt and it’s ready to eat.

7. “free burnham park in baguio city video sex scandal”: If you have a copy, send it to us hehe.

Okidok. That’s it for now. We’ll do another update on what people are typing in the internets in the future.

  1. …we also call it the same way although some pronounce it as ‘bovod’.
    …most richest man in benguet?i have no idea din.hihi.
    …menu for sayote: we call that ‘dinambong’ahahaha.nabisinak ketdin ya.

  2. Hi Djin,
    Thanks for that. “Dinambong” for us would be “linambong” 🙂

  3. that’s why we call it “binubudan” then. 🙂 besides the sticky rice, cassava (kamoteng kahoy) is also used. and i love the one with red rice too. during our childhood, we use to “recycle” the rice (after the tapey taste is gone) by soaking it with hot water then adding sugar after few minutes, hihihi. i don’t know if only me and my siblings did that.
    sorry, i have no idea who the richest man in Benguet is 🙁
    hey, what made them ask if igorots wear underwear? wen met ah. 🙂
    dinambong ja sayote, naimas mangu iman. you can also saute it ah. we used to have sayote plants in our yard and it has become a daily viand. can make torta out from it as well.

  4. bubod — ‘fofod’; the same thing.

    The number four question is funny. I think we should clarify and say that our forebears did not wear underwear 🙂 G-string was worn without underwear, which is the rationale behind not wearing one when wearing the g-string today.

    Keep the search keywords coming, Sir BB! It’s enjoyable hehehehehe…

  5. Hi Jane,
    Thanks. I can’t remember now if we add bubod to cassava but we use cassava to make sabeng which you’ll drink during hot summer days. Like rice wine, you should store the sabeng in a jar and keep it in a dry and dark place 🙂

    Hi Layad,
    Thanks. Oo nga parang iyan actually ang gusto nilang tanungin hehe. Will try to do more of this in the future 🙂

  6. Dangwa????? Are ye joking…when was the last time we got dividends from our Dangwa shares? 😀

    In Benguet, including Baguio?? (Teka, bakit ako tinatanong mo eh I’m from the slums)

    Siguro the del Rosarios (Sunshine), The Tans (who own the businesses beginning in Benguet…as in Benguet Timber, plus Jollibee), anyone who owns a school…anyone who owns a string of gasoline stations, and of course The Catholic Church with their landholdings…
