Pancit Malabon

I am totally having a bad day.

I am having a bad day for the last three days. Wanna know why? Cause my internet connection has been really slooooooow. It’s like being run by hamster on wheels and they’re getting really tired.

The other day, someone came from the internet company and told me that my modem is broken. He replaced it with a new one. Guess what? there was no change. No change at all.

peanutbutter told me to close the shop today and do some Christmas shopping to chase the bad mood away. I can’t…I’d probably spend all our savings trying to chase the bad mood away.

Okay. The hamsters are getting hungry now. I better get them some pancit. Maybe they’ll mutate into super hamsters and boost my internet connection into a gazillion Mbps or something.

Wait. Do hamsters like pancit? If they don’t, I bet they will love this one.

I am probably going out of my mind.

Pancit Malabon is true blue Filipino noodles. It originated in Malabon City, an area where fresh seafood is abundant. Seafood is the dominant flavor in this dish specially fish and shrimp…sometimes squid is also an added ingredient.
