Vice presidential candidate Walden Bello prefers sinigang over adobo.

He likes his sinigang, a sour soup dish that uses tamarind and pork as main ingredients, spicy, too, according to Bello.

“Sinigang, done in the Thai style. Spicy. And really hot,” the the former Akbayan Party-list representative said during an Ask Me Anything session on Reddit Wednesday.

The co-founder of the Bangkok-based think-tank Focus on the Global South is competing in the vice presidential race against Buhay Party-list Rep. Lito Atienza, Rizalito David, Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio, Manny Lopez, Dr. Willie Ong, Senator Francis Pangilinan, Carlos Serapio, and Senate President Vicente Sotto III in the upcoming elections in May.

During his filing of candidacy in October 2021, Bello said he was motivated to run for the vice presidency by the “greatest peril the country faces today, the Marcos-Duterte Axis of Evil.”
