  1. Rod, 5 years in the Philippines and you still speak very little Visayan, why doesn’t your girlfriend help teach you? Make an effort to learn the language, the natives would be thankful. πŸ™‚

  2. Happy Holidays Rod . Dried fish is a sustainable livelihood options for many. Hard pass on the dried fish but every now and then I come across wood smoked mackerels on a skewer. Those aren’t too bad..

  3. an advice, if you really wanna learn bits and pieces, have it written down, a sentence in bisaya OR tagalog … writing it down will let you remember … when they write it down have it translated too …

  4. Fried fish my Favorite..We’re always following all your videos Sir. Hope you can make video going to Katipunan and along SHOPWISE…Stay safe & Godbless

  5. I remember when I was there they would cook it in another apartment close by and it would burn your eyes from the smell…….that’s why most houses have the outside dirty kitchen……you never will get rid of the smell in the house. My ex-filipina wife loved that stuff….we would have been thrown out of military housing if she cooked it in our house…..lol I was lucky she always visited friends. cheers πŸ™‚

  6. Thats the secret to communicating there Rod, i found that also, if you speak more slowly and not run your words or sentences together, most locals have a rough idea what we mean. Typically Aussies and Kiwis tend to talk faster, unlike Americans or Canadians who talk a bit slower and do not use a lot of slang. My ex was from Chile and did not have a good command of the English language
    which encouraged me to speak slower and pronounce my words better. Regards, Amigo. Bob.

  7. Loved that related to all of it first dry fish omg it stinks my wife cooks when I’m out lol the house smells for three days lol I showed her all the dried fish so unappreciative said we have that in canyon de oro I’ve never shown you because you hate dry fish lol but got her showed her favourite she went yummy and talking slow lol most Filipinos don’t understand Kiwi accent my stepdaughter is always saying what heck dad you guys don’t say your R’s yes sometimes we scratch our Heads and say what did you say lol . Enjoy that video so much thanks merry Christmas to you take care

  8. Taboan is very popular with international and local tourist with their dried fish.. Anthony Bourdain from the travel channel been there and other local TV host. I always go there and buy dried fish to take it back here in the U.S every after my vacation there. MY sister live walking distance from there.

  9. Always so informative Rod..learnt so much from your channel buddy..will have to buy you a thankyou beer mate..when I can get back to Cebu..Cheers and Merry Xmas to youπŸ‘ŒπŸ‘Œ

  10. you on the right track Rod, that’s the best way to learn the language always trying yourself to talk to the locals. Also try to remember the names of the things you use or see around you, like say knife in bisaya, table, pants, street, cars, dogs, cats, girlfriend, if you learn all that then speaking becomes easier. I say in 6 months you will be speaking 60% fluent πŸ˜‰

  11. Hey Rod this was a crazy visit. I realize we are older but maybe some classes are in order. I will take lessons to assist me getting around as well as showing respect for the gaining country. Yes I know most speak English but it may alleviate the price hikes. Only question is which language to learn for there are many. LOL Thanks for bringing us along. God bless.

  12. Dried fish should be eaten as such, with beer, like you would with chips. The dried danggit is delicious this way. Your bisayan friends will say you are an animal, though πŸ™‚

  13. Hoy Dong you need to learn haha Hubog is Drunk is Bisaya and cold is Bugnow when you want it cold i know only a bit my wife swears at me but i know Tagalog better as first wife was from near manila 20 yrs nearly we were married and second is 18yrs now but i learnt more with her also watching tv you learn alot to well i do

  14. I don’t know if this is the same place, but when you leave E-mall going back to SRP, you will pass a dry fish market area, and it is strong in smell.. It will take your breath away.. The only dried sea creature I have, and actually enjoyed is at the Food Court at SM Seaside.. They have dried Squid or Pusit that they heat up, and roll it on one of those rollers.. They will put a flavoring such as cheese or BBQ sauce.. It is something I will actually pay for.. Thanks for the video Rod.. Bruce
