In the Philippines, certain meals involving fried rice (SInangag) and fried egg (itLOG) are given three syllable terms ending in "-silog". You have Tapsilog (Tapa/Meat), Tocilog (Tocino/cured meat), Longsilog (Longganisa/Pork sausages), and now... Tusilog (Tuyo/Dried Fish). My friend Gelo has a Tusilog Blog.[an error occurred while processing this directive]

I've tried eating tusilog, but I like tuyo better when taken with a steaming bowl of champorado (some kind of rice porridge with melted tablea chocolate). The saltiness of the fish mixed with the sweet-bitter champorado makes for an interesting meal best enjoyed on a cold Sunday morning.
There's something about combining opposites in food and in life that makes me enjoy living here in the Philippines. And I'll be dropping by Gelo's blog every now and then for a quick bite. *burp*
