Summer is out. School is in. Happy na ang mga bagets dahil sa wakas, may baon na rin. In other words, makakatikim na naman sila ng limpak-limpak na allowance. Yehey! Pero you know what, back in my old school days, baon is equals to carrying my Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles lunch box. At ang laman? Well, let me give you a list of my go-to baons (in no particular order).
1. Hotdog with Rice a.k.a. The Godfather of all Baons
Nothing beats the feeling of opening your Tupperware with two pieces of Tender Juicy hotdogs and red-colored, cold rice waiting for you. Ahhhh, those were the days.
2. Zest-O Orange Juice a.k.a. The OG of OJs
Whether you’re the type who makes tusok-tusok the straw on top with precision, or you’re like everyone else who’s not that anal to things, you just flip your Zest-O over and pinch it no look style, this juice drink has quenched my thirst more than our flavorless buddy, tubig.
3. Jelly Ace a.k.a. The Higop-higop
Before Oreo’s Twist, Lick, Dunk, there was Jelly Ace’s Peel, Lick, Higop. Well, that’s how I usually eat it. Kahit anong flavor pa yan—green, red, violet, or orange. ‘Lam na!
4. Iced Gem Biscuits a.k.a. The Icing Snack
Admittedly, there was a day that I didn’t eat the biscuit at all. Icing lang because I’m that sweet. Bakit, hindi mo ba ginawa ‘yun? Sabihin mong hindi!
5. Yakult a.k.a. The OK sa Alright Drink
‘Ika nga ni Michael Jackson, “tummy are you ok, are you ok tummy?” Ok that was horrible. But kidding aside, if you drink one bottle (or in my case one pack) of this yummy probiotic drink, you’ll be alright for the rest of the day for sure.
6. Nissin Wafer a.k.a. The All-time Favorite
Paano kainin ang Nissin Wafer? If you ask me, one wafer per three seconds. Wala e, ganyan talaga ‘pag favorite. Biased na kung biased.
7. Milky Marie Biscuits a.k.a. The Pang-baby Biscuit
One, two, three, asawa ni Marie. Araw, gabi nasa pantry. Wholesome tayo e. Anyway, who could forget Marie and its milky biscuit? Para ko ng first love to e.
8. Fuji Apple a.k.a. The Epol Baon
Sabi nga nila, an apple a day keeps the doctor away. Pero for me, an apple a day is seven apples a week na hindi ko man lang ginalaw. Mula sa pag pasok sa school hanggang sa paguwi nandun parin siya sa lunch box, together with its styro-like wrapper. It’s called epol for a reason, you know.
That’s it pancit! Sana sa pagpasok niyo sa school, baon niyo rin ang magagandang asal ha. Good luck and welcome back to the real world.
