My first Pinoy birthday celebration...


On Thursday, I was invited to the birthday celebration of Jade's Nanay and Tatay....His mother's birthday was just a few days earlier and his father's in March.

I have picked up a few words of Visayan so occasionally, I might work out something in a conversation, I heard bukid (moutain), hapon (afternoon) mentioned not exactly enough to understand the conversation...

The main event is the varierty of food which I had never seen before. There is simply no part of an animal a Pinoy would not consider cooking and eating.

The food on offer was an amazing collection:
  1. Bopis

  2. Humba

  3. Lumpia

  4. Escabeche

  5. Ginataang manok (Thai Style)
It was nice to part of a cultural event which I never thought I would experience in Belfast.

Thanks to Jade and Jing2 for all the hard work in preparing the many wonderful dishes.
