  1. Sometimes you should ask more questions hahaha. but how in the world would you not see and smell the difference in kinilaw and potato salad . Maybe you need to get your eyes checked or lay off the red horse so early.. LOL……
    But I’m with randy maybe you should have give it another taste.

    1. It didn’t smell bad, no smell at all really, because I smelled it. As I stated, it didn’t really look like potato salad, but I tried it anyway. Nasty, nasty, nasty. Nope! Not doing it again, just to get a video of it. Maybe if someone’s life depended on it, maybe not my life, but someone I care about.

  2. For the record, I did not try to trick John into eating anything. I just opened the container of kinilaw and said “Here, try this.” He asked me what was in it and I told him just the “usual” stuff. At no time did I mislead him into thinking this was potato salad! He grabbed a fork and took a large bite. The rest of his depiction was accurate! lol I had my camera on and thought I was recording, but it wasn’t and he flat out rejected the idea of another take. My bad! And by the way, this Kinilaw was made from “Tanigue” which is a Cebuano term for a class of fish, or “seer” fish (comprised from the mackeral family of fishes), and in this case, Spanish Mackeral. Most seer fish in the Philippines are considered a delicacy by most who enjoy it (except of course John Jackson). It was a fun get together!

    1. I guess ‘technically’ that’s true, but we were talking potato salad at the time. I asked you where the potato salad was and you pulled out that little container and said “Try this”. No, you didn’t say what was in the little container was potato salad. Except for that one incident, I had a great time at our get together. I hope to have another one soon.

  3. Always nice to get together with fellow expats. This is something we try to do at least once a month. And some of us meet once a week for a few drinks at a local watering hole.
    Where’s the pictures from the gathering?

    1. It is nice to get together and I’d love to do it at least once per month. I’m not a very good host (not much practice) so I didn’t think about taking pictures. Randy did make a video of it though. You can check that out here: https://youtu.be/anDlZEnK1fc.
      I’ll do better next time and take some pictures.

      1. Right after I answered your question, I saw that Randy was able to get some pictures from his video. I added a couple of those pictures to the post.
