1982 yata noon
Iskolar ako sa MSU-Marawi Campus
Si Kuya Avel naman iskolar sa UP Cebu
Pareho kaming malayo sa Gensan
Kahit short kami sa budget
Pinapunta nya ako nun sa Cebu
One of my best memories during that visit
Was dining at Ding How Dimsum
Naalala ko pa na we had to ride an elevator
To get to the top floor where Dimsum was
Kasi nga short sa budget
Nagusap na kami ni Kuya Avel kung anong oorderin
Tig-iisang Steamed Rice kami
Isang order ng spring roll or fried lumpia
Isang order ng siomai
And I think we shared one glass of coke
Ansaya-saya ko na nun
Since then adik talaga ng dimsum
Andami ko nang nakainang dimsum
But nothing compares to Ding How Dimsum
Last year, I made it a point to try them out again
I was in Cebu for a brief assignment
Lumipat na pala sila sa Colon Street
Excited talaga ako
Unfortunately I was disappointed
Hindi na kasin-sarap ng dati
And parang nawala na yung novelty nila
My fond memories of Dinghow Dimsum
Will remain that way – just FOND MEMORIES
Well, until I discovered them in Davao City
Ding How Dimsum is along Mapa Street
Sa tingin ko this used to be a residential house
Very cozy ang atmosphere
When I was handed the menu book
Nag-memory recall talaga ako
I saw all the familiar images
Steamed rice ever so much!
Spring Roll to the highest heavens!
Daw sa mabuang ko bah!
Have you ever felt that kind of rush?
Yun bang all the fond memories just come rushing back to you?
Naalala ko tuloy na uber kami sa tipid ni Kuya Avel noon
But this time since I can afford it
Order ako to the max
Pig out talaga kami nina Dave and Peter
It was one of my “bestest” lunch
And I am recommending that you visit
This unassuming restaurant along Mapa Street
Fast service na and very affordable pa ang presyo
And siempre ang importante
Nakuha nila ang original na sarap
Sarap na nareremember ko during my college days
