Amoy ng Tuyo


Filipino: Amoy
English: Smell, Scent


dried fish (tuyo, uga)




Gourmet Tuyo

Ang nakikita ninyong tuyo at Gourmet Tuyo ay galing pa ng Bacolod na pinadala sa akin ng nanay ko nung nakatira pa ako sa Hawai'i. May nakikita rin kayong pansawsaw na suka, sili at bawang. Sa amoy pa lang, malalaman mong masarap na masarap eto. Iba talaga ang pagkaing Pinoy!

The dried fish and Gourmet Tuyo that you see in the picture came all the way from Bacolod courtesy of my mother. She sent them to me while I was still in Hawaii. You can also see in the picture a bowl of vinegar mixed with chili and garlic. You can tell from the smell that my food is delicious.

From the looks of it, they look more like danggit not tuyo pero tuyo means dry so pwede na rin sigurong tawaging tuyo yun o better still daing na danggit. Most foreigners detest the pungent smell of the real tuyo. Tayo lang talagang mga pinoy ang mahilig diyan. Hindi na rin ako nakakakain niyan dahil masama sa high blood ko. Kumusta ka na? Nagpapapayat ka pa ba? Tinutuloy ko pa rin ang paginom ng apple cider vinegar na may honey sa glass of cold water. It seems good for my hypertension and they also lower my body fats and cholesterol levels. Thanks for the native post. God bless you always.

Hi, Mel!

I can't tell the difference between danggit and tuyo. Eh, dried fish kasi, so "tuyo" na tawag ko. I know this is not really good for our high blood pressure kasi nga salty, especially the Gourmet Tuyo na imported pa from Bago City, Negros Occidental. Pero, MASARAP, eh! hehe! Hay, if you've seen my post "Sailing", you can see na I really gained weight. Di na ako nag-diet. haha! Baka sa isang taon na lang. hehehe!

Hi MsRay,
Sayang naman yung $1,000. reward shopping money sa pagapapapayat mo. Binigay pa rin ba sa iyo? Anyway take your time kung kailan mo gustong magpapayat. Ang importante eh mag enjoy ka sa buhay mo na wala kang nasasagasaan sino man. Enjoy your day with a beautiful smile. Thanks for your reply to my comments. God bless you always.

@fortuitous faery: buti na lang hindi naamoy ng mga neighbors namin pag na-piprito ako ng dried fish. I always do cook out in the lanai para hindi mangamoy ang bahay. hehe!

@Mel: I was not able to get the $1,000 reward. Since talo ako, I have to pay $100. LOL!

@Ebie: Kung malapit lang tayo, share ko talaga sa yo.
