(Photo left)--I saw this picture in my brother-in-law's digital camera. This was taken last month during the Boy Scouts camping in Malagos, Davao City. It's a 30-to-45-minute ride from the city.
This is boodle fight. That was the first time I've heard of it.

(Photo right from travel.webshots.com)--A military style of eating, Boodle Fight is a symbol of brotherhood where food is served and spread on top of the banana leaves. The prepared Filipino food, usually rice and pancit, should be eaten with bare hands by a group of people. No plates. No spoon. No fork.
Maybe some people will find it unhygienic or uncultured, but sometimes you cannot be too choosy, especially when you want to survive in the middle of nowhere. You just have to satiate your starving stomach, or else.
