Pang us tubo! (munching sugarcane)

One of the best sugarcane strains is called la carlota... It is robust with purplish green peeling and quite expensive and a delicacy back then.

Pang us is exclusive hiligaynon term for eating or chewing sugarcane and extracting its juice while it is still in the mouth! Munching is not an exact translation of pang us but it can do... Here is my nephew munching his sugarcane stick and the remnant of his chewed and juiceless portions....

Munching tubo is a happy childhood activity which is great to be revisited from time to time by a "batang negros."
