Can you believe that even after 20 going on 21 years of existence, I’m still not sure about Mom’s age? At least I’m honest about mine. Haha! As long as she stays 18 in Dad’s eyes (awww), it’s all good. Anyway, she threw an intimate little food fest for us + the hard-working teachers and staff at school.
The predictable best-seller! Mom’s secret-recipe lechon kawali was out in a few minutes!
For a long time, I didn’t quite understand why you had to be the one to make pakain or provide food for other people to eat when it’s your birthday. I mean, you’re supposed to be the one being treated and pampered, right? However, one thing I learned from my parents is that while there’s nothing wrong with being on the receiving side during occasions like your birthday, as the Bible says, it’s more blessed to give than to receive. (Acts 20:35) In the end, there’s greater satisfaction in giving.
