Grab Driver Cited For Delivering Sinigang During Curfew

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – A Grab driver was cited for ECQ curfew violation early this morning for delivering sinigang in Purok Sinampalukan, Barangay Kinabukasan.

An unidentified kagawad told the driver: “Essential ba si sinigang? Hindi. Ang tao, mabubuhay kahit walang sinigang.” (Is sinigang essential? No, people can survive without sinigang.)

The incident happened just days after an international cuisine website declared that sinigang is the best vegetable soup in the world.

Move over, lugaw!

New Essential Under Enhanced Community Quarantine

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – As the National Capital Region (NCR) prepares for the strictest community quarantine beginning August 6, many citizens are turning to a new essential in the light of restrictions.

When Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) gets underway, indoor as well as al fresco dining will be prohibited, leaving Authorized Persons Outside Residence (APOR) to have to fend for themselves for their meals and snacks.

In the week before the ECQ, citizens have been buying portable alcohol dispensers and filling them up with vinegar and sili (chili), an essential dip/dressing for lumpia (egg roll) and other Filipino delicacies like okoy (shrimp fritters) and boneless bangus (milkfish.)

So to all APORs, beginning August 6, don’t leave home without it.
