My wife asked me yesterday what I wanted for lunch and I said lechon baboy.
Lechón is a pork dish, refers to a suckling pig that is roasted. The dish features a whole roasted pig cooked over charcoal.
But when she returned from the market, she only brought a lechon manok (roasted chicken cooked over charcoal).
So I asked where was the lechon baboy and she replied that there was no one selling lechon baboy. Maybe because it was sold out already as she went to the market around 11 noon.
She set aside some chicken parts with no skin for me. But I thought, “why not consider eating chicken with skin as a test?” – eating roasted chicken with skin having no gallbladder.
And so I ate a chicken wing with skin and a back part with skin. I even peeled off a skin portion of another chicken part. I really missed the chicken skin. For how many months of fasting and just looking on them. I tasted, felt, and savored the chicken skin again yesterday.
The test result: I had an upset stomach.
But I wondered what caused the upset stomach? Maybe the lechon manok or the burger with dairy products that I ate the other day.
