Longsilog

Longsilog – a tagalog word derived from LONGanisa, SInangag, and itLOG. In english, they are pork sausages, fried rice and egg, respectively. These dishes are cooked mostly in the morning but nowadays it can be lunch or dinner too.

The longanisa or pork sausages are made from a mixture of ground fatty pork, garlic and spices then stuffed in the pig’s intestines. There are many versions of the longanisa from different regions in the Philippines. The version in the photo is made in Vigan, a town at the North. It is about 4-6 hours from Manila via the North Expressway. This sausage version is the none sweet type. It tastes slightly salty and it is best paired with vinegar mixed with garlic and pepper dip.

The sinangag or fried rice is a simple mix of garlic and leftover rice. It is stir fried with a bit of oil (preferably from the oil produced after the longanisa is cooked) and seasoned with salt to taste. While stir frying the rice, mix a bit of the longanisa oil to add flavor into the rice.

The eggs, in this case, are simply fried. I prefer it that way. It can be modified according to your liking but, so far, simple a fried egg is the best for this combo.

Enjoy!

Walk around park connectors 

Check out my walk on Strava: https://www.strava.com/activities/887996467/shareable_images/map_based?hl=en-US&v=1488681323

I woke up early today. I had to meet a friend at a nearby mall to handover some printed materials for the class that we are volunteering in.

After the handover, I then proceeded to walk around the blocks and park connectors. I stopped from time to time to take some photos using my mobile phone, the Xperia XZ.

Here I’m testing the phone’s speed shooting mode although I set some of the parameters in manual e.g. ISO and shutter.

The new park connector walkway along Bukit Panjang road is still not open…

So, I had to walk through the HDBs crossing to Fajar. The short park connector in that area led to Ring Road. Further up that road, there’s this Chinese temple where people are offering incense with their prayers to their loved ones…

I checked the map to look for the nearest park connector and found Fajar Nature Park. Here are some of the photos I took along the way…

The park also has a playground and exercise ground with machines for the use of fitness conscious persons in the park. After a while I found the park connector going to Zenghua park.

While walking through the park connector, I passed by a couple of  playgrounds…

Finally, before exiting the park connector, this flower was hit by sunlight as if on a spotlight…begging to be photographed.

What an exercise! Hope you have a great day to!

(Not in picture is the part where I bought roti prata telur, curry puffs and chicken rice after the walkercise… 😅)
