I was still a kid back then, but this melodic tune runs in your ear everytime you hear it
on the radio and you can't keep humming or singing along with it.
"Mamang sorbetero, anong ngalan mo
Tinda mong ice cream, gustung-gusto ko
Init ng buhay, pinapawi mo
Sama ng loob, nalilimutan ko"
Mr. Ice cream man, what's your name,
I like the ice cream that you're selling.
You lessen the heat of our house,
and let me forget my bad mood.
This is an old version of Ice cream cart, it sells local "dirty ice cream", a slang word,
but not literally dirty, in fact it's tastier than those ice creams for sale on the s.market.
It's famous for its queso (cheese), ube, chocolate and mango which are the usual flavors.
It's old school, the sorbetero (ice cream man) would roll out the cart everyday to wherever his destination may be.
And this is a newer version of it, you can instantly see the logo of Nestle, obviously owned by this company, with a modern twist, it has a music jingle installed everytime he goes along with it and it has a variety of flavors to choose from.
so what kind of sorbetero cart do you like? ^0^
Ps: i want to thank everybody who's been kind enough to take some time off, visit and comment on my blog, things have been quite busy these past weeks, (but don't they always?!) ^0^
despite my incorrect grammar or how my fotos seems to be so disorganize sometimes,
i'm glad i've shared something that's part of my city (if not everday.)
I'll be blogging off for awhile, i needed a vacation, i hope i can get one! ^-^
so, i'll be back after holy week.
I'll be off somewhere that will take me almost 4hrs. to get there,
it's gonna be cold and a mandarin speaking country.
there'll be some serious walking, (and here i am asking for a break!) ^-^,
appreciating the sights and scenes, learning its historical and cultural values that's different from us and ultimately, get more new, inspiring fotos that i could share and last, just have some fun when i get there! ^0^
so to all, i wish everyone, a happy weekend, advance happy easter and a peaceful lenten rest.
