For Long Life

Fresh noodles
Sexbomb dancers say so: "spaghetti pababa, spaghetti pataas!" The pancit family of foods is said to bless us with long life because of its being physically long.

Egg Noodles
Pancit for long life. In Bicol, we have the famous pansit bato. It's named not because a bato (rock) is used to make it but because the town of Bato in Camarines Sur is the official headquarters of pancit-making industry in the region.


Instant noodles. I buy instant noodles occasionally only to teach my daughter of chopsticks 101.


How about 'tanghon?' At home, we raise native chicken in the backyard. We cook sotanghon with our native chicken and then it's so yummy!

Bihon. In Metro Manila, I'm confused the way people call bihon as pancit. At home in the province, bihon is bihon while pancit is different.

Generally speaking, I refers these foods to belong to the pancit family. In Metro Manila, one can go to an eat-all-you-can restaurant and he can see  all of them in one table. You can try visiting Tongyang, I'm pretty sure pancit family is there.
