„Hmmm... Smells Like Toasted Rice Crispies“

from the gallery of Paul Hilario

Original title in Tagalog: Hmmm... Amoy Pinipig.

Pinipig is normally glutinous rice, cooked, dried and pounded flat.

This painting was inspired by a popular cinematic line, “Hmmm... amoy pinipig” by Mr. Romy Diaz.
Mr. Diaz was a popular bad guy in Philippine cinema and he would utter the line when getting whiff of a woman’s scent.

Even today, Filipinos (men mostly) use the popular expression and they do so accompanied with a dastardly and funny smile.
