One of Zamboanga’s active woman leaders, Diday “Dee” Saavedra-Tate, is now venturing into the cart food business. Her Dee’s Fish and Chips will soon be around city’s prime locations. For now, it will be available at their family humble home (garage parking lot) in Toribio St., Tetuan, where cozy chairs and tables are set. Affordalicious - it serves only crispy fried fish with rice and potatoes on the side plus one free Coke softdrink.

Zamboanga Columnist Club (ZACO) tried it when they had their meeting there 2 days ago. Young people and students are also discovering it. Delicious and satisfying this is one value meal worth to spend while enjoying good times with friends. You can go solo there also and read  books and magazines collections of Diday.

By the way, Diday got married in a simple matrimonial civil ceremony last year with Judge Eisma. Her husband, Anthony, is a handsome African-American and felt in love not only with her but Zamboanga City as well. They really jibe together having the same likes and dislikes. His looks is very deceiving – he looks very young but his age is beyond 50 already.

The first time I met him I had fun with ZACO members asking them to guess his age. Most started at 30 but could not believe when I told him he is more than 50. And everybody thought he is younger than Diday!


1 Corinthians 13:4–8. “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.”
