I remember how my mom used to admonish me when I was a kid just because I liked hanging out at palengkes. lol :D Now that I'm 30, I stay away from wet markets because of the smell which unfortunately triggers my asthma attacks. *weird that it didn't bother me way back then*
What she didn't know is that I just love staring at these goodies - then and now. I don't really buy, I just love looking at how they were stacked and their colorful and very interesting labels and whatnot. My favorites then were the red jelly thingy covered with powdered sugar (I assume), coco jam flattened really thin and came in pack of 6 and chocolate "pillars" which was basically chocolates shaped like tiny pillars. I'm not sure if they still make these things but I hold fond memories of them :)
Oh, happy birthday mom. I love you very much!
