      Yes adobo is sooo good, but this video was soooo bad... lol Im not a filipino but was married to one, and i picked up alot of the language.... wow, this was bad... why was a white boy trying to do a "how to" video in a another language, cool to cook ethnic food but why are you also speaking their language, and poorly? Got to admit it was very funny to look watch! lol
