Arrived in Los Baños at around 4am struggling with two boxes of suman latik, a traditional steamed sticky rice treat wrapped in banana leaves accompanied by latik or the sweet sauce from coconut milk and sugar. Suman latik is typically prepared during fiesta celebrations.
Went back to my hometown for the fiesta. Took advantage of the national holidays and applied for leave of absence from work to get a week of stay in Bacacay.
Now, a third of the fridge has become a storage for the suman latik that I have brought as pasalubong for the third sister, friends, and colleagues.
