If you missed the Taste Matters out of Singapore program featuring Manila and Adobo, two readers in Singapore were kind enough to post nearly identical short clips of the show. sometime_lurker used a cellphone and hence the maintained anonymity… heehee. But Hershey managed to capture nearly a minute of Marketman and has posted that on Youtube as well. Think of this as a trailer or teaser for the full show that will air on cable in Manila and Hong Kong in about 8 weeks. Will remind readers of program time as it gets closer (if I remember myself) but meanwhile, if you are curious, check out the links to the youtube video in the comments section of this post. Thanks. It’s funny how so many readers probably think I am this really old, fat, bald-headed guy…hahaha! Thanks sometime_lurker and Hershey! :)

    that, and MM’s height, would make him hard to miss. MM, in you tube, you are in the company of tony bourdain, padma lakshmi, and other great names in food-dom…wow! thanks again, hershey and sometime lurker.

    I’m part of a couple of on-line communities and it’s always a big deal when someone who is very private “comes out” on-line by posting a picture. Obviously your decision to be anonymous for so long was not a matter of vanity. I know enough Tagalog to agree with Jacob’s Mom. :-)

    That was my first reaction too, that Marketman looks younger than I’ve thought though I’ve no idea of his exact age. :-) I was supposed to record Marketman’s TV outing from start to end, but when I turned the cam on, the screen showed “No Card Present.” I had to run to my desk and scour the drawers. So there. That would explain the incomplete video. :-(

    Cool! Nice to place a face with your blogs. Your comments on the video does not give you justice in the amount of food knowledge embeded in your brain.
