Noli de Castro meets up with the viral ‘Lugaw’ vendor in “KBYN: Kaagapay ng Bayan”

MANILA, Philippines – Why would a ‘lugaw’ vendor sell his product for only P2?

This is what Kabayan Noli de Castro finds out as he gets to know Mang Romy, the ‘lugaw’ vendor from Valenzuela City whose story went viral on social media, this Sunday (July 24) on “KBYN: Kaagapay ng Bayan.”

Romeo Velasco, or better known as Mang Romy to his patrons, has been selling ‘lugaw’ or porridge for almost five decades now. Recently, his business made rounds on the internet because of his very cheap ‘lugaw’, which is only priced at P2.

Meanwhile, Kabayan takes a look at the production of eco bricks, which is made from used oil and plastic. The local government units of Marikina and Angeles teamed up to create a recycling program that turns waste into useful materials.

In Tagaytay City, the journalist visits some furry friends too. Fur parents Jose Ignacio and Edison Cham introduce their huge pack of Great Danes to Kabayan. This breed is known as ‘gentle giants’ because of its sweet-tempered trait.

Noli also meets Ollie, the ‘small but terrible’ Yorkshire Terrier, owned by Alethea Aileen Tan. Ollie became Althea’s companion dog when her father passed away.
