Something happened to the kaldereta that my uncles cooked for my mom’s birthday… Well, as you can very well see, it all disappeared!01022010571

The curious case of the missing kaldereta

Actually, my aunties have been busy packing and segregating the food for everybody to take home. That’s why the kaldereta, pinapaitan, pancit, kilawin, putong puti, and putong dilaw all disappeared! ;p

My aunties taking home the food

The day was a huge success. What I love about my family is that they are absolutely fuss-free: nobody wants to be treated like a VIP, nobody is expecting anyone to dress up. Everybody came wearing slippers! Love it!

Here is a picture of my niece and goddaughter, Leahn, together with my nephew Yuri:01022010578
Adrian, my brother, is great with children! He played like he was one of my many younger cousins:  01022010568 01022010573
