I can’t believe a vendor has to be MARRIED to a Korean to sell filipino food! That is ridiculous!
I talked to Tita Norma, my GIRL at the market (love her), and it’s sad that her business is constantly being threatened. For one, the market is a wonderful place where Filipinos can have a sense of home and build their community through social gathering and FOOD. Second of all, the market does not make the neighborhood “dirty”, i’m pretty sure your fuckin phlegm, garbage and kim chi remnants does the job done
I love this place, it reminds me of home, the vendors remind me of my aunties. Leave the market alone Korea….DAMN!

“doesn’t like normal people… normal is getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work, driving through traffic in a car that you are still paying for, in order to get to the job that you need so you can pay for the clothes, the car, and the house that you leave empty all day in order to afford to live in it.”—some wise dude/dudette
