THE “SINIGANG” CASE

How to become truly independent and being responsible in life? Ardie Aquino answers this in his “mini-comic” entitled Siinigang. It is basically a simple cook book of our favorite Philippine comfort food (and definitely one of two truly PINOY cuisines ever, another is Tinola). Additionally, the creator pays homage to that certain fatso chief named Adagulfo Sungcal of the famed Pugad Baboy in learning how to cook that simple and delectable recipe.

Aquino utilizes the grey color to illustrate prior experience of attempting to cock one but resulted in a hilarious but honest-to-goodness empirical take since we need to learn something to master it, right? Anyways, while following instructions at the same time reminiscing the cast’s baptism of fire, those panel sequences are cleverly placed to create a feel of light suspense, particularly the final taste results. However, his illustration of pouring the bottle of fish sauce or “patis” is obviously exaggerated (is that intended on the creator’s behalf?).

Isn’t adding “fish sauce” on a dish that is already “salty” (since the instructor told him to put salt before “patis”) too much? In jest, no wonder why many of our kababayan are having serious urinary disorders at all. Also, some wordings are somewhat forced, if not a little of old-fashioned to read and imaginatively listen. But nonetheless, this short narrative simply gives us a slice of life of taking ourselves responsibly, and one of that mean is never ever be afraid of the mistakes committed while learning how to concoct our beloved comfort food.
