After Chef Laudico Guevarra’s performance on Tawag Ng Tanghalan Celebrity Champions last Tuesday, October 15, Vice Ganda asked him if he knows the ‘alamat ng sandok.’ When Chef Lau said ‘no’ and when everyone became curious, the Unkabogable Star was obliged to share the ‘tale of the ladle.‘
The story started with a girl named Bernadette who has a long chin.
“May isang dalagita na mahilig magluto. Ang pangalan niya ay Bernadette. Mahaba ang kanyang baba, mahihiya ang french bread,” he narrated.
According to Vice, the girl does not go out in fear of being teased by people, so she stays home and cooks all day.
“Hindi siya lumalabas ng bahay dahil niloloko siya ng mga kalaro niya dahil mahaba ang kanyang baba, so luto siya nang luto. ’Yon ang nagpapasaya sa kanilang pamilya,” he continued.
One day, her mother knocked and told her that her father has arrived and wanted to eat already.
“Bernadette, nandito na ang ’yong ama. Gusto nang kumain,” the mother said.
With this, Bernadette panicked and put all the ingredients in the cooking pot.
However, she noticed that what she used for mixing was missing, so she used her chin to do it, instead.
“Pagtingin niya, nawawala ang panghalo niya nung pagkaing niluluto niya. Kailangang haluin ang sabaw so ang ginawa ni Bernadette, pinanghalo niya ‘yung baba niya,” he said.
“Aray!” Bernadette shouted.
Her parents got scared and came to look for her but she already went to the hospital.
“Natakot ang mga magulang niya, pumasok sa kusina. Pagpasok nila, nawawala si Bernadette. ’Yon pala, pumunta si Bernadette sa ospital,” he said.
Once she got there, the doctor said her condition is a first-degree burn so he just advised her to buy medicine and materials for healing.
“Madali lang ’yan, first degree burn lang ’yan. Bumili ka lang ng ointment ta’s lagyan mo lang ng benda tapos bumili ka ng gamot," the doctor said.
“Bibili ng gamot? San, Dok?” Bernadette asked.
“At ’yon ang alamat ng sandok,” Vice ended.
