BAGUIO CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Baguio City Bureau) – The Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR) has had its share of instant celebrities from among its citizens who were just doing their jobs as vegetable farmers and workers.
Many Filipinos are familiar with Carrot Man and Cabbage Man who caught the nation’s attention because of their good looks.
Now, a new sensation is on the horizon. We’re calling him Chilly Man
Like Carrot Man and Cabbage Man, he was caught on candid camera carrying a load of his produce — chilli peppers. But truth be told, his produce were not really newly-harvested chillies. Rather, bottled chilli vinaigrette which he sells in his Baguio-based Café Tam Tam.
Will he be the next celebrity sensation on GMA 7, or the defunct ABS-CBN?
