2021.10.1 Coffee is cheap in Cebu!

2021.10.1

I’ve been seeing a coffee vending machines lately in Cebu area, mainly 3-in-1. Most of the time, there seems to be three choices: milk coffee (sweet), cocoa (very sweet), and coffee (sweet), but sometimes there is black coffee (but for some reason, it’s slightly sweet) near the residential areas. 5 pesos per cup! But I’m not sure if it’s a good idea to give caffeine to children…

2021.10.1 They’re counting on the water truck

2021.10.1

Due to the influence of the large resort hotels around the area, the water from the tap is preferentially taken by the resort, so the residents have no choice but to buy water from water trucks like this one. But it’s not drinking water, so it’s pretty cheap.

One large container like in the picture has a capacity of about 110-150 liters, and it costs only 50 pesos to fill it up. This is mainly used for bathing, toilets, and washing dishes. It can be used for cooking, but it is not suitable for drinking water, so they buy water for drinking separately.

2021.10.2 Renting a bicycle is a great way to get around Olango Island.

On Olango Island, the neighboring island of Cebu Mactan, bike rentals are very popular. The price is also very cheap at 20 pesos per hour. It is a bit dangerous to ride a bicycle in Cebu City or Lapu-Lapu City, where there is a lot of traffic, bad driving manners, and poorly maintained roads, and there are few places where you can relax like in this picture.

2021.10.3 Carpenters in Cebu are working hard

This is a family that makes furniture. It’s a family business. It’s a good example of how even a Corona disaster like this doesn’t stop you from live without any problems if you have a job. They make various kinds of furniture, for example, 1 sofa, 2 side chairs and a table cost 30,000 pesos. I think it’s probably a little cheaper to sell to Filipinos.

Lunch on the beach behind the house with rice and green onions…nice! The children are also very happy. This is the best kind of food, isn’t it? Beautiful weather, delicious fish and sea urchin. It’s a great way to live. They took a pot full of rice to the nearby ocean. Very nice. I’m so jealous 🙂

Do you know how much this 19-liter container costs in Cebu? this is drinking water. The price varies slightly depending on the store, but before Corona, a 19-liter bottle was costed like 5 to 15 pesos (10 to 30 cents), but now a bottle costs 20 pesos (about 40 cents).

It has become an popular event for this filipino famiy. They took their food to the beach, catch some seafood, and have a family lunch on the beach. I think they do this quite often. Maybe it’s also a good time to let the kids play.

Information about Wahoo Cafe can be found on their official Facebook page.
Basically, during the period when the Kon-Tiki Beach Resort is closed due to the Corona disaster, this cafe is also closed, so I recommend that you check if it is open before you visit.

2021.10.8 This is a unique Filipino home cooking.

Seafood is the most popular type of kinilau, but this time she introduced us “Kinilau Na Talong”, an eggplant kinilau. I’m sure it’s delicious. She said she ate it with rice, but I think it would be also good as an accompaniment to alcohol lol.

2021.10.10 Bamboo is an important part of making a boat

This looks like the bamboo used for the outrigger part of the boat. In the Cebu region, when making a boat, materials are gathered from various places. For example, the basic of the boat is made in Masbate island where the good quality of the tree can be found and brought across the sea to Cebu. Using these materials, we build the pump boat. There is a good place for drydocking at Olango Island, so the boats are often assembled there.

 This dish is popular among the local women as they enjoy chatting with each other while sharing the pot.
 In recent years, the dish has become more famous since it was featured on Netflix’s Street Foods, and some famous local restaurants have adopted the dish, causing trouble with local residents who claim to be the originators.

2021.10.13 A typical dinner in the Philippines.

In many years back, we also used to have similar dinner scenes like this, it was very normal to have dinner with the whole family like this….

 The smaller fish is called “kihok kihok”. The larger one is called bangus (milkfish) and is a popular fish in the Philippines. The milkfish is said to be the most cultivated fish in the world because it is resistant to high water temperatures and grows quickly. The shellfish is called “aninikad” and is also very popular in cebu.

 the cost for her entire family members of 14 persons was 450 pesos (about 9 usd).
In the countryside of Cebu Island, seafood can be obtained almost for free from relatives or fishermen in the neighborhood, and vegetables are grown in the fields, so the only cost per meal is rice (a few pesos per person). But not in cities like Mactan Island or Cebu City. 
 The daily wage for a security guard job is about 300 pesos, so it is necessary for families to help each other out by doing side jobs. The Filipino woman who sent me the photos this time also seems to be working hard as a restaurant clerk or selling tempura at a stall to help her family make ends meet. That’s great.
