Cordillera - In a zany quest for authentic Igorot experiences, Mike, a curious foreigner, embarked on an unforgettable journey to Sagada, Philippines. Eager to embrace local traditions, he bravely decided to try "momma" or betel nut chewing, an age-old custom of the Cordillerans.

Excitedly, with the helped of his new friends, Mike chomped down on the momma, unaware of the impending hilarity that would unfold. As the powdered lime called 'apog', tobacco, and betel nut concoction met his taste buds, his eyes widened with astonishment. Suddenly, he felt an eruption of heat, causing him to sweat profusely, turning him into a human fountain.

His attempts to maintain composure were futile, as his body jittered like a hyperactive kid on a sugar rush. Mike's heart danced the cha-cha inside his chest, while his mind wondered if he had inadvertently plugged into an electric socket.

In his video blog, Mike recounted this bizarre experience, leaving his viewers in stitches. He described the locals' meticulous process of preparing momma, carefully wrapping it with a 'gawed' leaf, which he hilariously mistook for an origami masterclass gone wrong.

As he regained his senses, Mike couldn't help but laugh at his misadventure. Despite the whirlwind of sensations, he applauded the cordial Cordillerans for preserving their unique culture through this age-old tradition. However, he did issue a friendly warning to future adventurers, advising them to approach momma with caution unless they're eager to become the next comedy sensation.
