The Lugaw Ride

Lugaw (rice porridge) is an old, traditional Filipino food made with rice, water and seasoning that is usually consumed with tokwa or egg or other animal internal organs – and it is those inclusions that make it special, or without them, just plain lugaw.

I love my lugaw.  I grew up with lugaw.  We used to visit this “Onoy” lugawan in Concepcion when we were still kids.  In high school I used to bike all the way there for meryenda.  And up to now my kid loves it.  

The usual weekend route
If you follow me in social media you may find my weekly posts about Lugaw Ride (sometimes with or without egg, depending on how much is in my pouch on that day).  This past weekend I didn’t post it anymore as its starting to get old.

There are some comments about why I have to ride 30++kms with a no-so-easy-uphill ride

in Antipolo and back just to have some.  Actually it is not the lugaw, but for the love of cycling.  It’s the sense of accomplishment of getting to the end of the rainbow but not for a pot of gold but a bowl of lugaw. 

The usual weekend post

So the next time you see me post about it, it means that I was able to arrive at checkpoint, and that the worst part (climb) is through.  The lugaw break means the start of relaxation and eventually the rush of downhill.  Every cyclist loves the downhill!
See you on the road!
