In the province, what we do is just get Kangkong in the backyard and do an instant Kangkong Adobo. When we went to Manila, I was shocked at how much these kangkong costs. I tried to have it in the 1 feet x 6 feet plot in front of my house but I cannot remember to water them and they kept dying! The ones in our backyard doesn’t even need watering, I don’t understand!
