As I was browsing through the pixes for a food pix to post, I realize that this delicious lumpia of Charrey del Rosario of Molo, amongst the several food stops we did, is the only clear food pix from our food walk. The rest were…guess what? selfies of my students.
Which brings me to an observation that indeed, I am getting old. Growing up in the 80s, I don’t recall my barkada having posed before the camera in whatever crazy fashion. The only poses we knew were to stand or to sit and then smile. To pose cross-eyed or with that Datu Puti mukhasim face…those were unthinkable back then. Literally unthinkable for the 80s brains never conjured of such creative poses.
With the selfie generation, that is the norm. I was amused just watching them while one person set my ipad in front or above their faces and everyone tried to squeeze into the frame and make face after face after face with the successive clicks of the button.
The downside of this is–the variety of heritage food they tasted were not well-documented in my cam. The selfies, well, was just partly to blame. Everyone was so busy analyzing and savoring every bite during our Molo Food Walk. The delicious heritage food of the Parian was a revelation to them.
It’s all right. I’ll work out another run of our Molo Food Walk, with 80s babies next time. Now, that will be interesting or should I say, boring?
