The lie...the truth.

Not going to buy from her, even if i don't have any. Someone came knocking at our door this morning, asking if I could buy some boneless bangus or milkfish. I say no, I still have and bought the same thin the other day, then told me that, her fish is different from what I bought. Yeah, maybe. I lied to her, I don't have boneless fish. What i told her is like a indirect of saying "no", or not going to buy. We used to buy from her. But the quality had gone bad. The fish is not fresh, we had those itchiness on our tongue and gums, it means that fish is just bad. That is the truth. Maybe I will tell her about the quality of what she is selling next time, hope she will take our observation. Have you noticed some changes in the quality of the food or things you used to buy too?

@drosophila some species of fish like milkfish (bangus) can be sliced horizontally, deboned, then marinated in vinegar, garlic, salt, black pepper etc, then fried to be eaten with steamed or fried rice.

Yeah!! The quality of the grocery we used to buy from previous store went bad and then to worse. We stopped buying from there. Now we are happy with the new place.

Oh yes, most of the time. Sometimes the vendors are just trying to get you as their customer. They will give you the best at first to persuade but later on it will change.

Meaning that fish is no longer fresh, long over due and it causes itchy tongue.I experienced it and I threw the fish far from home, spoiled not known to me for it was coated with ice.

Yup, I notice that. Even those from leading brands. They have some products which are good when they were just released or newly introduced to the market but after some time, they are no longer like before.

@Lucky15 yup I think that's one of the reasons or maybe that was their strategy, or I already got used to the taste or scent of the product. But if it's the boneless milkfish that gives you itchiness or allergy, that's another story. Hihi better not buy from her again.

Yes, the products were better in the past. The quality is getting worse every month and the prices are getting higher.

Luckily, we buy our vegetables at our neighbor's 'talipapa' and fish and meat at Monterey. During and after the typhoon, there were many sellers of fish here, discounted pa, but we refuse to buy because who knows, maybe the fish they sell ate a drowned human being. eeewww!

She is a fish seller, so she knows about the quality of her fish. i think best not to buy from her anymore, but tell her in a nice way.
