  1. talented ka, friends..i tried this twice--maybe 30 yrs ago pa...hahaha. order nalang ko a..

  2. can i bake it?? maybe spray some oil on fish before baking?? all that lupok scares scar gid kon ma paso'

  3. Nat indi sya maglupok ah basta low fire lang. basta i coat lang sang flour first before frying.
    I baked some before pero better to spray pam first before wrapping sa aluminum foil. if ur wrapping it then u dont need to sew it pag boneless bangus.

  4. it's our ultimate HOLY WEEK food lol

  5. I love this although it's hard to prepare one.. so we'd always buy lang :)
