According to New York Times , Officer Crespo was working at the 24th Precinct on the Upper West Side on Sept. 5, 1995, when a knife-wielding man lunged at another officer. As his colleague fought with the attacker, Officer Crespo tried to knock the knife away and was stabbed in the chest. He and another officer then shot the intruder dead, but a stray bullet hit Officer Crespo in the knee. Officer Crespo suffered a collapsed lung and was out of action for four months.
After 20 years of service, he retired and start travelling and creating video for his channel. And now, he is visiting Philippines. I am honoured to have him in my channel.
In this video, I let him try the popular Filipino Delicacies –eg, Chicaron, Yema, Piaya, Sampaloc, Tira-Tira, Banana Chips, Penoy and Balot. Chicharrón is a dish generally consisting of fried pork belly or fried pork rinds; chicharrón may also be made from chicken, mutton, or beef. While Yema is a type of Filipino candy named after the Spanish term for egg yolks – mixed of condense milk.
Piaya sometimes spelled piyaya, is a muscovado-filled unleavened flatbread from the Philippines especially common in Negros Occidental where it is a popular delicacy. It is made by filling dough with a mixture of muscovado and glucose syrup. The filled dough is then flattened with a rolling pin, sprinkled with sesame. Sampaloc is a sweetened tamarind. Tira-tira is made of old coconut cooked in brown sugar. And Banana Chips are chopped fried banana with glaze. Lastly, Penoy is an unfertilized duck egg without yolk formation when screened against a lighted candle or electric bulb also known as the candling process; while balut is the fertilized one.
