Pan de Sal is so easy to get around Manila; almost all bakeries in every corner sell them but the best of course is the bread from Pan De Manila.
Food requests are almost always granted, so I said "Okay, we'll stop to buy pan de sal".
Upon hearing that, she went a little nuts. "No! I want pansal bread! Pansal bread!".
"Yes! That's what we're getting!", I exclaimed while parking in front of Pan de Manila near our village.
By the time I got the bread, she was almost crying, saying I bought the wrong bread. WTF!
So I asked her to describe to me what is a pansal bread. She appeared exhausted and frustrated by Mommy's ignorance as she said "Pansal bread, the one you sawsaw (dip) in chocolate! It's like this...", and then she drew a ribbon-like image in the air.
She wants a PRETZEL!
