One thing I like in our 1 year stay here in Davao City (March 16,2008 to March 31,2009-because of my husband's work),is that unlike the village where our house is in Manila,the village here in Davao where we are temporarily housed,allows vendors. Vendors selling fish,corn,and native delicacies ae the only ones allowed though. Different goods are being sold by walking people shouting their wares. They have their time schedule too. Like pan de sal(round bread) by 5:30am. Puto maya(sticky rice) by 6am. Fish by 7-8am. Fruits around noon. Nestle and Selecta ice creams around 3pm.Rice cakes-such as hot bibingka and palitaw,also boiled corn around 4-5pm.Well,dont think so much of how much weigth I have gained. Back to my question-Do you like to eat fish?...I ask this because,I do not like fish so much. I find them malansa(that's basically what we call the smell of fish here) But there are exceptions: This morning,I bought from a lady shouting Lapu-lapu(not the native who killed Magellan)but its a Grouper fish...and expensive. I bought it for $5/kilo...which is a very ok price compared to Manila. I can eat lapulapu either fried,sweet&sour,or stew. I also eat Galunggong(female-Hard tail mackerel/male-Round scad)and Bisugo(Thread fin fish)as long as they are fried toasted. I also eat fresh anchovies(dilis)as long as its head is taken out and cooked with vinegar. But I eat,all kinds of dried fish. The irony is...I eat sashimi-because it is prepared with no smell at all. My husband and 2 kids eat any fish. It is only I who has specific preference. How about you?Enjoy eating.

i eat all kinds of fish. depends on how you cook it. i love grilled but it has to be cook properly. i dont eat raw fish. i dont eat sashimi or anything like that. i like sinigang sa miso of maya maya head good with rice. i also love inihaw na bangus. i also love tilapia. har har har. i eat dilis if you fry it i cant eat the kinilaw. my wife puts flour egg and kinchay but only the laman then fries it. it looks like okoy.

Hello.around 3 years ago,before coming here to Davao,my husband's work area were the North and South Luzon. Meaning, Pangasinan-milkfish capital was included in the map. we always had all those bangus cut...belly,daing,spring roll...as long as they are all boneless,then my kids will love them.Happy eating

I'm located at a Delta region. It means that rivers and sea are nearer to me. i eat both river and sea fish of local flavour and relish.I like Sharks more than any other variety.

That is a very nice place to reside actually,we live by the sea too...a resort actually, I used to go to rivers when I was younger and I like the fresh water shrimps...much better than fish for my taste buds...enjoy life there...

I love fish! My favorites are salmon and catfish. I feel like I can eat my weight in either one.

I really wish I could say-I love fish! my sons favorite is deep fried catfish. there is a place here where one could order catfish cooked in different ways...I just end up as an audience to them eating...happy eating

i absolutely love fish and i think i can live my whole life with nothing else to eat but fish and vegetables. maybe it's psychological but i seem to feel healthier when i eat fish. i prefer fish with white flesh though. my mom would never let me eat dark fleshed (duguon) fish like bariles

I eat a lot of fish as I prefer not to eat meat, I always have fish if i go to a restaurant for a meal but i also buy fillets of fish to have maybe three times a week as it is essential for the body to have certain oils that come from fish, I usually buy the cheapest fillets what ever it is from the fish monger but for me that is ok

I can stand fillet once in a while,as long as its crispy and with a really nice sauce like honey mustard or creamof tartar...other than that,Id take breaded pork instead.LOL...hapi eating
