Not that I want to stereotype but I believe that people who belongs to a certain area shares a number of common characteristics and behaviors. I don’t have to go far to prove this point. Since the Philippines has a total of 81 provinces, you can see how different one can be from another. They say the Ilonggos of Ilo-Ilo have an extremely sweet demeanor and I can attest to this by just listening to my friend T speak. She would talk in a sing-song voice even when she’s annoyed or mad. Amazing, I tell you.
As for Paul, they hail from Pampanga where, to me, is the land of yumminess that's located north of Metro Manila. This is where you can experience having a lunch feast that could last for hours on end! The food never stops coming! My first Capampangan lunch began a little before 12noon and we finally stood up at 4PM! It’s food madness. I feel that the Capampangans have such high regard for food where they don’t just see it as the edible thing that you have to take to keep you alive but for them it’s a way of life. It’s part of their lifestyle and somehow they have brought out the beauty of eating and feasting as a family.
I really miss dining at Jun Jun's and can't wait for my next trip back to Pampanga. I also remember enjoying their bibingka and noodles too!
