It will take a Fil-Canadian to promote Filipino nationalism for the Filipino to appreciate the Filipino culture. Mikey Bustos once again met the bloggers at Crowne Plaza Galleria last Tuesday rekindling the love for Filipino culture with Chicharron ni Mang Juan of Jack and Jill Corporation.
Since I met him the first time last month endorsing the Mang Juan Chicharron, he's back in Manila to delight his fans once again for more shows and a new webmusical, The Prison Dancer soon to hit the social media. Awarded as WikiPinoy of 2011, Mikey Bustos' career gained the respect and patronage of the Filipinos from his YouTube tutorials.
Mikey is the perfect face of Jack 'n' Jill's Chicharron ni Mang Juan possessing a strong and authentic Filipino identity. I really loved his tutorial about how Filipinos love Plastic Balloon because I still play with it until now (although my students laugh about it every time). Having a chat with Mikey made me appreciate my mom more than I used to and I am truly grateful that he continually keeps the motivation to create more tutorial videos so I can share them with my students.
He shared us all his stories about Chicharron ni Mang Juan - made of dehydrated green peas with the look and taste of real fried pork rinds without the cholesterol. Chicharron ni Mang Juan comes in Pinoy -Espesyal Sukang Paombong, Espesyal Suka't Sili and my son's favorite, Spicy Sisig. No need for dips, it's my family's favorite snack at home and they already have Shingaling. I don't really know how many variants there are but I've tried the Adobo flavor and it's really so good.
I love Chicharron ni Mang Juan and I love you Mikey Bustos for making me appreciate my mom more than before!
