MOA, Manila - I almost could not believe my eyes when my favorite indigenous leafy vegetable, the "Alogbate" was featured in the salad served in the Gala Dinner tendered by President Rody Duterte for world leaders, including US President Donald Trump.

"Alogbate" which grows easily in the farm is considered as part of the poor man's diet and served with mongo and dilis or dried anchovies.

Tonight, it has gained international prominence, thanks to Pres. Duterte.
