It was an early Christmas celebration for the Batgirls!
Originally, it was not supposed to be our Christmas party but just a lunch to visit Tita Letty, the mom of Mayette, who has recently undergone a surgical procedure.
But since it is so hard to find time to get together, it became our instant Christmas party!
Oh Christmas food! Oh Christmas food! (Sing: Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree... Got it?)
I brought the Christmas Stollen Bread given to me by my neighbor, Tracy.
I read online that if you don't use a whole chicken but chicken parts instead, it is called Ballotine as opposed to gallantine which uses a whole chicken.
Jing brought Lumpiang Shanghai.
Avancena family, Tita Cena, Corry and Mona brought our favorite Little Quiapo's Pancit Palabok.
And Revel Bars from Purple Oven.
Mariger cooked her famous Pork Menudo.
Mayette's family prepared a lot of food for us!
Inihaw na Liempo
Inihaw na Tilapia
Inihaw na Talong
Dessert was Yema Cake
And Chocolate Truffles.
Tita Emy and Tita Charet brought Chicharon
Everybody loved it! We were literally slurping it from our spoons! I would have to ask Tita Charet for the number of the supplier which she knows personally.
As usual, I was so fuuuuuullll!
My stomach was like a "tambol" (drum)!
I love Jing's new phone! I look quite beautiful in our selfie! Hahahahaha!
I am not ashamed to say it. I've never been known for my humilty.
Of course, we had to have a group selfie!
I love these people! They are more than my friends.
We are like a one big happy family!
A very early Merry Christmas to all!
