In an interview on OnePH’S “Sa Totoo Lang”, Densing wasasked by reporters if lugaw was considered as an essential good or a non-essential good.

However, his answer left netizens and reporters confused as he joked about the difference between “si lugaw” and “ang lugaw”.

Tama ‘yung sinabi niya. Sabi niya kasi, non-essential si lugaw. Hindi talaga essential si lugaw. Pero kung sinabi niya essential ang lugaw, ‘yun tama ‘yun. Ang lugaw. Pero si lugaw ang binanggit niya. Non-essential talaga ‘yun sa paningin namin,” Densing said.

After that, he raised his two hands and made a “peace” sign.
