(taho recipe here)
Growing up in the rural areas and during occasional stays in Manila, our mornings were defined and completed with a glass of taho (soy bean curd). The early callings of "Tahooooo!!!" during summer days meant it's time to get up. I clearly remember how my sister and I would beg Manong Magtataho to add some more of the syrup he'd put in meagerly. At Php1.00 a glass, we would sit down happily and finish our taho before going back to play.
On our last trip home, we brought the kids to the La Mesa Ecopark in Fairview. We promised them we'll go horseback-riding but the plan was always postponed. Living near Tagaytay, we can actually go there easily but circumstances led us driving back to Quezon City so we sought the nearest park to bring the kids, to fulfill our promise. While on our way to the stables (farmville?) a taho vendor came near us and the excited hubby immediately asked for some coins...but to our surprise, a cup costs Ph20.00! :D (Sabi ni Manong, kasi daw sa loob ang benta at mahal ang cup haha.)
Nevertheless, that didn't stop the hubby from buying. It has been years since we have had taho and it would surely be nice for the kids to learn about this high-protein energy wonder! We didn't get the chance to introduce them to taho on our previous visits.
So off we went to the stables. There were only two horses available to rent. :D I think they were the local horses since they're small compared to what I was used to seeing or perhaps they're just ponies waiting to grow up hehe. The kids had fun anyway, we also went around the park but I'd tell those stories sooner or later.
P.S. The past days have been a battle between foodbloggers and a certain "Kusinero" who has been copying content (photo and write-up) and putting them on his Facebook page and blogger account. After reports and warnings, the blogger blog was shut down, the pages removed but there are still some that has remained. We are encouraging everyone to be vigilant of plagiarist and copycats out there. We do not want our own works being copied right? haays....have a nice weekend everyone!
