Yes, the popular New York China town sa lower Manhattan. Di na mabilang sa aking left and the right na mga daliri kung how many times mula noon at ngayon napadpad sa lugar na ito.

Picked any : Bus/Car/Train/Walk/ puera lang motorcycle at bicycle… didn’t have the guts sa dalawang wheels…

Ma-kodakan nga minsan pa ang area.

Area na pinupuntahan ng mga turista especially mga Filipinos/Fil-Am/Expats/OFW/Balikbayan/Visitors in the neighboring New York area such as New Jersey, Delaware, Philadephia and Connecticut ay  siguradong familiar ang Chinatown. Think of this place as the Mecca ng Chinese Food.

May tubo pa man din

May tubo pa man din, oy... look at the price!

I missed my childhood feeling dahil sa tubo na yan. There are three ways to satisfy the whatever feeling it was:

  • The hardway; pang-os way,
  • The easy way; which is  to drink the liquidified pure sugar and
  • None of the above –  “PROTECT THY INVESTMENT”

Protect thy investment explained:

  • avoid  pang-os sa tubo dahil there is a possibility na ung delicate perfect teeth made in u.s.a  dental insurance nga among gibayaran minus sa sweldo mapungil.
  • avoid too much sugar – one cause of OBESITY – dagdag pabigat na naman yan sa health insurance.

By the way, dental insurance is NOT FREE! We frigging paid monthly for our health insurance, dental included in the packaged.

Again it is not free. Kinakaltasan yan galing sa sahod na aming pinagtatrabahoan.

  1. hahaha! i like! i like! we had so many fun times dyan sa NYC Chinatown except mahilo hilo ako sa lintek na ajinomoto na tipong isang kaban sa isang platitong cho’s chicken! grrr!!!

    • darbs said

      Ganoon ba? sowi to hear that but interesting…

      May standard kaya kung gaano kadaming ajinomoto ang ilagay sa pagkain?

      Di ba sa atin example ung aso na pinulutan ng mga istambay habang background the Michael Jackson’s “Beat it!” sound, sa baryo ang aso inajenomoto un.

      pag sobrang dosage daw ng ajinomoto ang ipakain doon sa aso, siguradong mahilo at un, na overdose sa ajinomoto…pinulutan.

      Disclaimer: no proof kung ajonomoto ay makahilo maliban sa asong ginawang pulutan.

    PANG-OS UG tubo, dili tubo sa bomba, hahaha. Tuod no…

    • darbs said

      Pang-os ug tubo – morag dili na man necessary. Sukad nakataak sa amerika dako na kaayo ang nagasto sa ngipon.

      Gasto gikan sa buhis kung libre ang imong dental visit.

      Kun ikaw nga nagbayad para sa imong dental clinic via insurance premium makahuna-huna pud baya ka kung PANG-OS ug tubo the to be or not to be, that is the question.

      Ngano man pud nga mahisalaag man dayon ang panghuna-huna didto sa asyendang katubhan?

      Tubo sa bomba star?
      Tubo nga mutobo
      Kadto ganing gamiton sa
      Sex not war nga klase sa tubo
      tubong kahitsura ug indian pana
      mora bag si istikolindoy nga may sima sima
      mao kana ang tubong espesyal, may ugat
      Sa dugo modako pero dili magamit
      sa mga (here we go again…)
      chas-titi nyu! with the
      celi-bate nyu!

      Puerti ka complikado nga kahimtang
      Pero isa lang ang padulngan

    Wow, ang sarap nung lobster darbs! Para ko tuloy gusto pumunta sa dampa today to eat seafoods.🙂

  5. this i find odd….sa lahat ng sulok ng mundo merong china town except sa China..bakit ganun?

    • darbs said

      @Snow, sarap talaga seafood ano? a little bit expensive pero worth it. Salamat at nagustuhan mo ang lobster.

      @blu, tama ka ano? wala lang sigurong name na chinatown pero may Real China Town as in Nungjang Chingchongchai litte town of China na nag riot ang mga chikwang mamamayan.

      Good news pala blu, dahil sa kabilang barrio ng chinatown may tinatawag silang Little Italy.

      Little Italy… interesting.

      Hmnnn… pang blog entry na rin di ba? Salamat!
