A trip to Bayambang, Pangasinan will not be complete without a taste of its infamous buro - a mix of fermented rice and fish. Buro-making is no a walk in the park even if it has only three ingredients: salt, rice, and fish. It is a very delicate process that takes about three weeks. The fish used - dalag, tilapia, or gurami - are all sourced locally. Shellflex Food Products showcases a modern day buro-making process with the help from the Pangasinan State University. Modernizing their buro is not just about new equipment. Shellflex learned how to make the buro less pungent while maintaining its flavor. The secret, they said, was removing the fish head in the process. Sauteed buro is best served as side dish of steamed vegetables and fried fish.
Back pain? Upgrade your massage or hilot for a chiropractor session with Fallorina Orthopedic Practitioner in Bautista, Pangasinan. Ortho therapist Rime Fallorina, also known as Tatay Rime, treats various muscle, nerve, and bone problems while listening to the limb’s “echo” using only his stethoscope. A session with the 67 year old lasts for about 5 to 10 minutes, which includes some bone-cracking stretching. A session costs P300 to P600 depending on your case. During his clinic days, Mondays and Thursday, about 25 to 40 people line up. They are mostly from nearby towns and provinces. Tatay Rime’s medical knowledge came from his father, who studied in the US as an orthopedic doctor. He was assisting his father since he was 12 years old. And like a family tradition, he is passing his knowledge to his younger son as well.
Only two towns in the Philippines has former President Emilio Aguinaldo’s statue on their municipal hall, the hero’s hometown in Kawit, Cavite, and Bayambang in Pangasinan, where he declared as the Fifth Capital of the Philippine Revolutionary Republic.
Across the century-old municipal hall is the two-hectare public plaza with the four-feet signage “Balong Bayambang” (New Bayambang), where tourist may take their photo. A walk through Bayambang’s rich history and attraction may be accessed through a mini-gallery inside the park.
