Banana Cue- The most famous Philippines snack


” Shinggay, stop playing now.Snacks are ready…”

I could still recall this line as mom would call me from our neighbor’s house.This is the usual 3pm line.And is happening when after that long play, your mother will call you because of two things; either she is worried because you are already hungry or she will spank you because you never just the dishes or never respond to all of her instructions when you assigned you to do a particular household chore.And in my case,my mom could do both.YOu know that kind of feeling that of course, she will let you eat.However, she will tell you not to play overtime because you will, I will just end up adding another pile of dirty clothes for additional laundry for the coming weekend and she’s tired about it.

But, despite that, this means happiness though.Especially for my tummy, this means a pleasure.And when it comes to food, I tend to forget everything and I’ll be there  hurrying up, telling her ” Ok, wait a minute…I’m coming, ”

Mom prepared BANANA CUE.My favorite snack.And here in the Philippines, this is a common part of our diet.
