Recently, I had a little discussion with some friends how Tinola appears on no less than the Noli Me Tangere.

I suppose anyone who reached 3rd year high school in the Philippines would remember the dinner at the beginning of the novel. When Padre Damaso takes offense at being served the chicken neck and wing while Crisostomo Ibarra gets the atay and balun-balunan.

Now, this soup served in banquets during the Spanish colonial era shall be mentioned in my blog as well.

Because during dinner, I managed to spill hot Tinola on my lap.
