Roxas City, Capiz Philippines

Hometown visit. January 2010

Capiz is know for being The Seafood capital of the country but would it scare you If I just utter the name, Capiz?

If Siquijor is well known for wicked witches practicing voodoo magic. Capiz is known for well populated mythical beast creatures. My hubby's family came from Roxas City and this is the place where he was born. The family decided to revisit their hometown. I had a couple of days to spend. And there we went to Roxas. 

No, there isn't a single mythical creature along the way.  ^( '-' )^

Roxas City is yet to be developed. The commercial buildings are still few and establishments are pretty much of rural places. As it is, it will always be a peaceful place at night with a hymn of a cold air breeze.

We first went to one of their relative's house and we were greeted with presumptuous meals. If there is seafood, there is always a traditional way to cook it. A couple of years ago, my parents used to having the rice cooked in a kaldero. My mother said the ones cooked under the burning wood tastes better than the one from the electronic rice cooker. Until now, I never knew what the difference is.

Filipino's all time favorite in bare hands!
What is better than having your family eat all in one table?

They say the smoke gives an additional aroma on the food, doesn't makes sense if the food tastes smoke, the rice would taste like its been grilled or more like tutong? I never liked tutong (burnt rice). Anyway, I wouldn't like to argue about it with the elders now, do I?
