Day 19: El Nido (boat trip 2)

On our last day at El Nido we went for a second boat trip, to some further-flung islands in the bay.

Intestines from a pig (i think), not sure, but I ate them anyhow. Yum.

Bakery treats - don't be fooled by colourings and different shapes - they all taste identical. Although the small 'breasty-like' ones with a single red spot have nice coconut stuff in them.

    those are not pork intestines but chicken intestines (locally called tina-eh) or sometimes called betamax.

    In Manila, those chicken intestines are called isaw. 🙂

    Hanna is correct. It is pork intestine. A chiken intestine is smaller and has continous loops (hence the monicker “IUD”). Pork isaw is usaully cut in smaller pieces like the one on the photo (size proportion compared to the stick also shows its size, as that of a pig’s). I eat this a lot…nevetheless, in Manila, wether its pork or chicken, it is called “isaw” as in isaw-baboy (pig), or isaw manok (chicken).

    On a different note- thanks for the Blog- it’s a useful info for those planning the same thing. We did Luzon this year and panning to do the visayas next year (in sections) before finally hitting an entire Philippine trip (most probably by retirement).

Welcome to VeloTour

This blog's about a three week cycle touring trip in the Philippines in July 2008. Check out the introduction.

I've created the blog to be a day-by-day account, but it's all based around the photos - so don't worry - we won't bore you with loads of text ... just pages of photos instead. Blogs show the most recent post first - so if it's easier, use the menu below to navigate.
