ACCORDING to some people, the most delicious meat in Ifugao is the momon. It is cooked without any add-ons except some salt but together with its broth, it is said to surely satiate every tongue. In the local idiom, the folk would say “liklikdona di bagang” (it will circle through the neck).
IT’S a sad fact when languages die, so goes the culture of the people that speaks the language.
WALK around the area near the longanisa section of the Baguio City Public Market or the first floor of Baguio Center Mall and you'll see several stalls selling DVDs and VCDs. Look closer and you'll notice Kankanaey and Ibaloi movies produced by labels like Abatan Records, Nesvelye Video Production, Quilito Entertainment, RCO Production and several others. These are not big names in the Philippine movie industry. There are no huge banners and fancy posters anywhere to announce and advertise these local films. Their directors and scriptwriters don't appear in newspaper headlines or on national television. Their actors and actresses don't go to premieres in cinemas and no screaming fans crowd them when they show up in public. In the first place, these films don't have premieres in cinemas, or anywhere else.
