S …. Is for SUGBA

Sugba is a ‘bisaya’ (Davao’s native tongue) term for grill, sinugba, if it is a done thing, gi-sugba, if it is still on the process of grilling, i-sugba if you are still planning to grill it. And if you’re angry, you may say…. I-sugba taka, meaning you still have time to run away … LOL, just me and my morbid thinking.

Ja! We had this last night, my kids love this fish, since it has sparse bones and it’s not hard to ‘himay’ unlike the milkfish, where if you’re not careful enough you’ll end up looking for breach birthed fellas, eat banana or have a cat’s paw run down your neck.

We call this fish locally, barilison, we often have a fresh supply of these unlucky fellas usually from adjacent Samal Island.

So there making this post my entry to ABC Wednesday, for more great photos, SEE HERE.

Thanks for dropping by on this side of town.
