Gustuhin ko man maglahok ng medyo creative sa tema ngayong linggo, wala akong mahagilap ng litrato sa aking baol. Sayang, may nakita akong laro sa perya n'ong Sabado ng gabi---mga nakasalansan na lata na binabato ng bola at mananalo ka ng stuffed toy pag naitumba mo lahat. Syempre di ko naisip kuhanan ng litrato ang mga lata! Kaya heto, mga di kasiyasiyang litrato ng mga de lata sa bahay na lang ang lahok ko.
Tulad ng karaniwang Pinoy, nagho-hoard din ako ng de lata. Nakakatipid ako sa oras gamit ang de lata kapag kailangan magluto ng mabilisan. At isa sa mga libangan ko ay ang mag-ayos ng mga ito ayon sa kanilang expiry dates. Sa unahan ang malapit ng mag-expire, sa likuran ng medyo matagal-tagal pa, at ang mag-e-expire na talaga, kailangan gagamitin o kakainin na kaagad. Bata pa ako, ito na ang assignment ko sa tindahan ng aking lola. Ang premyo ko ay lata ng Spam o Libby's corned beef na paborito kong pinapapak.

I would have wanted to post something creative for the theme this week but I just couldn't find something interesting in my archives. I was at the amusement park on Saturday night and there was a game where you strike a stacked cans with a tennis ball. I took photos of the prize---a bunch of stuffed toys, but missed the cans. So here are some lame photos of the canned goods I have at home.
Like most Filipinos, I hoard canned goods (afraid to go hungry when there is a calamity or power outage :p). Canned goods save me time when cooking for a quick meal. One of my therapies is to shelve them according to their expiry dates. The ones in front need to be consumed soon, the ones at the back have a year or two left in their expiry dates. As a child, I was given this assignment at my grandmother's store. Then I was rewarded with a can of Spam or Libby's corned beef which were my favorite snacks.
