palabok

Palabok - a native filipino delicacy, a stir fried noodle dsh using round rice noodle smothered with a thick, golden shrimp sauce or other flavored sauce, and topped with: shrimp, chicharon (crushed pork rind), hard boiled eggs (sliced into disc), tinapa flakes, and freshly minced green onion. If you want to know how to cook palabok check out this recipe.

The term palabok is also used colloquially when a person is beating around the bush or trying to add more words to make a story fancier. And i hope President GMA wont put too much palabok in her State of the Nation Address (SONA 2008) tomorrow!

I just had palabok at Mami King yesterday! The noodle is thinner than the one in your picture but it tasted palabok as I remembered it to be back home.

Is the use of "palabok" and "bola" the same colloquially? Or is "palabok" a shade refine than "bola"?
