Tupi is becoming the place to have a pig roast or hog roast, I was at a birthday party for Jo Jo and they had a pig, complete with head. Then the next day, here in the same hotel, or guesthouse there was a wedding with another pig. I took this photo at the wedding.



A man was quizzing me about, what is the difference between wedding reception in the Philippines and in the USA. The only clear difference was the pig, I never remember going to a wedding where there was a pig roasted or hog roast. The clothes, the table, the dollar dance, all were more or less the same, yet the serving of a pig was different. The culture or Christian culture here is very similar to the USA.

Lechon is the Tagalog name of pig.
