LOOK: OFW bakes ‘Duterte pizza’ to celebrate PH Independence Day

On the occasion of the Philippine Independence Day, an overseas Filipino worker (OFW) in Trinidad and Tobago has made President Rodrigo Duterte edible by outlining his face on a pizza.

OFW Nestor Cabradilla can be holding a pan of Duterte cheese and caramelized onion pizza baked to perfection.

In an online interview, Cabradilla told TFT online that his Filipino chef friend named Alan Tulalian encouraged him to create the pizza.

“Actually hindi naman po talaga ako magaling mag portrait. Kaya ginawa ko dun sa pizza is ginamitan ko ng baking sheet na pang trace ko po. At sa pagluto naman po medyo binabantayan ko po na hindi mag melt masyado yung mozzarella cheese para hindi masira yung portrait,” Cabradilla says.

Cabradilla said it took him almost four hours to prepare the food art, it was all worth it.

The OFW admits that he looks up to the President.

“Naisip namin si Duterte kasi kahit papano sya po talaga yung mararamdaman mo na may pagbabago at may pagmamahal sa bansa natin,” the OFW said.

After taking the photo, Cabradilla and his fellow OFWs in the Caribbean country feasted on the pizza.

Cabradilla said the tenacity of Filipinos is very much similar to the fight of our heroes to defend the country’s independence.

He said it is a daily battle for OFWs to push themselves to continuously working despite the physical hardships and emotional struggles of being away from their families.

“Bilib na bilib po talaga ako sa mga kapwa ko OFW kasi kahit ako noong una ko pa talaga dito sa Trinidad and Tobago, mapapaluha ka talaga dahil sa kalungkutan, kahit na sabihin natin na kaya lang natin yung trabaho pero aatakihin ka talaga ng homesick,” the OFW said.

“Nagpapasalamat rin po ako sa mga kapwa ko ofw dito sa trinidad dahil sa kanila may ka bonding ako kahit papano at na eenjoy ko na rin ang pag stay ko dito.”
