Kea welcomed her 18th birth anniversary while we are still quarantined, in Enhanced Community Quarantine to be exact. It is totally different from what we have planned and how she really wanted to celebrate, but okay. What’s important is we are together (at home) celebrating her life. There is beauty in simplicity – that is somehow how we are as family.
As a parent, we know you always want good education for your child. It is not a question if you are sending them to school, but a question as to where your child want to study.

Last Saturday, October 19, my girls attended the Hulma MNL Basic Air Dry Clay Funko Pop Inspired Workshop at the Papemelroti Artisan’s Workshop in its Main Branch in Roces Avenue.
Founded last February 2019, Hulma MNL was built by friends Marge and Czarina to help artists and aspiring ones discover and develop their skills. As they have mentioned in their Facebook page: “We exist to share the love of arts and crafts.”
Thanks to a Lazada overseas seller, I got the Huion Graphics Tablet on sale. My dear daughter, Kea, had been eyeing and wanting to try digital arts. She installed an app on her mobile phone some time ago and used it for her first Kim Tae-hyung realism digital drawing. She happily posted and shared it on her Instagram account.
Christmas, the Filipino way, would not be complete without special meals that is shared during Noche Buena (Christmas Eve dinner) and Christmas lunch. There are a great line of popular Filipino dishes that has been loved for generations.
It has been the family’s tradition to spend Christmas lunch at an aunt’s place. For this year, I was able to prepare and brought a special and healthy meal, Chopseuy with quail eggs. This Chopseuy was inspired by the recipe I got online. It was perfect in the midst of Lechon Kawali, Buttered Shrimp, Menudo, Rellenong Bangus, Pork & Tofu, Hamonado, Leche Flan and Macaroni Salad. This by far, is the best Chopseuy I have ever cooked. Funny it may seem, but I will sure add this recipe in my comfort foods and list of Christmas food favorites. Yes, even if it is a viand you can prepare and cook any day and in any occasion there is.
Auntie also has this specially prepared shrimp paste that perfectly matched the green mangoes someone gifted her. That shrimp paste made me interested to learn its recipe. My own version does not taste that good.
My kids really liked the buttered shrimp and asked me to prepare that too on Sundays or during special occasions. The Menudo too was delicious! In fact, everything in the table was definitely mouthwatering!
Christmas lunch with the family has always been memorable, not only because of the great food, but also because of the people you have by your side, the stories, laughter and the moments shared. We received a video call from auntie’s family overseas and we took plenty of pictures to cherish. We left the place with warm hearts and smiles in our faces. It was yet another Christmas to remember.
