Life in a Philippine Barangay # 009 – from Pig to Lechon


There are several ‘litsenero’ with us in Barangay Cugman, in the city of Cagayan de Oro, these are the ones who grill the lechon (suckling pig), but this one is in our immediate neighbourhood and we are good friends with the extended family.

Actually, we just wanted to get some fresh fruit (pineapple) there in the morning. In the end we got the pineapple and also watermelon and bananas. And I was allowed to film how three lechon were grilled on the fires, new pigs were delivered, a neighbour had something to sell and a bit of chatting didn’t go amiss either.

For foreigners like Koreans and Chinese, our Litsonero now also offers turkeys and rabbits.

I am always happy to be in the middle of something like this and to have the camera equipment with me.

So, expecting more videos of this and that about the Philippines in this channel.
