Merry Christmas, Lia!

My Christmas post is a little bit late because I have been playing with my new toy!

Ever since I can remember .... we always celebrate Christmas on the 25th at lunch time.  And our food has always been Lechon and Pesang Manok.  I do not know why ..... but we continued with the tradition.

A lot of people would prepare the usual holiday food .... but I could cook them any time .... so I suppose .... it was not special anymore for us.

I CANNOT cook Lechon!  My friends and I dream of roasting our own pig.  I told them we would take turns in turning the spit.  Mayette said, she already found a pig farm and we could choose the pig we want to roast.  I told her, I will NOT eat a pig which I have seen alive a few hours ago!!!! I do not mind if it is dead and dressed, ready for roasting.

This year, we ordered from "Aling Loring's".  I checked SPOT PH's Top 10 lechon in Manila.  According to some people, that is where Erap sometimes get his lechon.

We ordered the size good for 40-50 people according to the guy on the telephone.

We were able to eat our favorite parts to our heart's content!!!!

I got skin and ribs!!!!  I do not like the meat.  I had 2 servings!!!

Most people are afraid for me .... they are always saying I should watch out for my fat intake because of cholesterol but people do not know ..... that my cholesterol count sometimes is even lower than normal!!! And I cook using pork lard!

Lucky me because my most favorite food is Lechon!

My family is very small....

It is just my Ate and her family ....

Kuya and Sophie...

Our little boy Renzo is down with Pneumonia, he could not join the festivities and his Mom was taking care of him.  Poor little guy!!!  And to think he was so excited about Christmas.

PD and her "dog" Busy....

PD and Lia....

and of course... my four-legged child .... Wriggly!

He was even included in the gift-giving!  PD bought him his favorite snack at Bow Wow.

Hehehe! Even his food is "wheat-free"!

After we had lunch at my house, we went upstairs to open our gifts.

We had Hot Fudge Sundae for dessert but I forgot to take pictures.

It takes us forever to open gifts because we would watch each one as they unwrap their presents.

We always start from youngest to oldest .... since the little boy was missing in action ..... it was...

Gilly's turn first ....

Then... Sophie's....

Kuya (of Gilly) Nicky was next .....

Lia ..... ( as usual .... not too many pictures of me since I am the photographer)...

Ate Gina ....

Kuya Raul.... hehehe trying to guess what I gave him.

Butch...... (husband of Ate)

and .... PD!!!!  Kuya, Ate and I gave her an IPAD!

And my most favorite gift of Christmas 2012.......

From.... Kuya!!! My new toy.... an IPAD!

It was indeed a Merry Christmas, Lia!

  1. You know, the interesting thing about having traveled around the country as much as I have, and I think it's sort of inadvertently what made me come out or at least begin doing things within the community and thinking more about that, was that I get to travel quite a bit.Flights to Manila
