Hubby and I loves to eat street foods. My personal favorites are kwek-kwek, tempura, fish and squid balls, grilled chicken intestines, pork and chicken barbeque while hubby loves to eat proven, balut and gizzard.
A week ago, we dine outside at our favorite chicken ala carte street stall. We ordered these yummy and delicious chicken barbeque, gizzard and chicken intestines paired with hot rice and cold softdrinks.
Some people find these foods disgusting because they probably considered it unhealthy or unsafe but really it is all just unusual. But for us Filipinos who love these foods, it is typical and normal and it is something common that is already a part of our Filipino food and culture.
The young people from our church made a surprise Mañanita serenade on the eve of my hubby’s birthday that happened yesterday. They came to our house at 4 am, my hubby was still wide awake at that time and he was surprise when they sang some of his favorite songs and of course the jolly birthday song.
Mañanita, by definition is a serenade done on the eve of someone’s birthday while Las Mañanitas is a traditional Mexican song that is sung on birthdays and other important holidays. It is often sung as an early morning serenade to wake up a loved one. At birthday parties it is sung before the cake is cut. We are not familiar with the Las Mañanitas song that’s why we just prefer to sing my hubby’s favorite songs.
My hubby looks like he’s removing some morning star from his eyes…hahaha! but he was actually touch and he’s happy for what they did. I think all of us will be happy if someone’s serenading you specially on your birthday since you feel that you are being loved and you are special to them.
We have been practicing this Mañanita serenade a few months ago every time when somebody celebrates his or her birthday. We usually bring hot breads such as pandesal or monay and also bring some 3 in one coffee so all of us could share and enjoy the happiness together with the birthday celebrant.
This is our usual and typical breakfast. We love to eat scrambled eggs with tomato,garlic and onions in it. We usually like to pair it with hot plain rice but sometimes we like the fried one. One of our favorite breakfast homely staples is the “tuyo” or dried salted fish with of course the vinegar and chili as dipping.
These dishes are fairly easy to cook because they require only minimal cooking skills. These is just one simple fares for breakfast with the family. We Filipino likes to eat like kings during breakfast because this gives us more time to chat with each other and enjoy each others company. It is also a time to relax before starting a long day.
