I have been missing Philippines even more this month. I know that celebrating Christmas and New Year seasons are more extravagant and exciting in the Philippines, indeed there's no place like HOME!
Each time, I go to attend nine-day dawn masses here in Bangkok, I couldn't stop thinking about the food, Christmas carols and the glittering lights everywhere in the Philippines.
I am missing these foods which we usually have on Christmas or New Year's day.
Yummy Bibingka (rice cake)
This is how they cook bibingka
Puto and Kutsinta (rice cake)
Puto Bumbong (another rice cake)
Pancit (stir fry noodles)
Queso de bola (literaly means cheese ball)
We have many variations of salad in the Philippines that I do really missed.
Macaroni-fruit cocktail salad
Buko salad (young coconut)
Buko Pandan salad (young coconut and pandan flavored jelly)
Below is the sample image of our Christmas foods in the Philippines. More extravagant celebration in the country side than in the City (Manila).
The Traditional Christmas Eve Feast
Now... I am getting hungry :p I'll post again next time, breakfast is approaching :)
