A Filipino Who Doesn’t Eat Rice

evan tan writer in manila: a filipino who doesn't eat rice, image of fernando amorsolo painting of people planting rice

At the risk of getting my Filipino card revoked, I will confess that I haven’t eaten rice for weeks now. I can’t remember when I last ate it. It must’ve been before my trip to Edinburgh: I vaguely remember cooking rice for lunch one afternoon. (That I vaguely remember means that I haven’t been eating rice as much as I used to when I was in the Philippines.)
