As a child in the Philippines, I used to sell snacks or merienda to my friends and neighbors and my childhood best friend @mariagoestotown would create a tiny eatery selling actual Filipino food that we grew up eating. Our customers are our siblings and they didn’t really pay us 😂 we did it for fun and play; we didn’t think of anything else that would come out of that. But the love of cooking stayed with me. I would watch my grandma cook in an open fire. She’s from Leyte Samar so her cooking was very distinct from Surigao food. She made the best Suman Muron I’ve had. My dad is also a great cook. I think I got my natural ability in cooking from my dad. I remember as a child I would ask so many questions to my dad about his cooking and his “secret” recipe. His best one is pancit, dinuguan and Lauya which is a boiled beef shanks soup with taro and cabbage. Me selling food at an event is such an exciting thing for me because I have not done this in a long time. It awakened my memory as a child and really enjoyed the process of cooking these food. I truly see it as if I am playing without so much expectation.
The photos are the food that I lovingly made with joy and infused with Reiki (High vibes). I will be serving this at an event @downloadmovement 💫🌱🥖🥗.
We had a baby! 🤱🏻 During our pregnancy we managed to stay vegetarian/vegan. He’s in great health and can even lift his head! Shout out to @iu_health for offering a Vegetarian and Vegan menu on their room service . You have no idea how thrilled we were to have these options. 🌱🤗😋🙌🏼 #ThankYou •
