Lechon/Signs

These signs were calling my name. Artery-clogging Lechon, or suckling pig is a popular food around here.  There are festivals around the country to showcase Lechon.  In most regions, Lechon is the centerpiece during special occasions such as weddings, fiestas, reunions, birthdays and Christmas.  It's a kind of food that will not make you grow old---because you'd die young when you indulge often.  

Once in a while when I crave for Lechon, I buy a pound from this food cart.  But this time,  I congratulated myself for walking away without buying.:p

Walking away, that's what they call 'temperance' :) Congratulations. Lechon is my great uncle's fave too. Amazingly enough even after a stroke he still does not walk away from it. He wheels himself toward it and sulks if his children do not buy some once a week. (lord, have mercy!)

I followed your link from my ABC post. I forgot if I have commented back or not.

PENGEEEE! I laughed out loud on the dying young part. Although I miss lechon and its "offshoot" lechon-kawali, I try hard to walk away from it though.
