Christmas and Birthday Celebration


I’m sorry for being in hiatus, haven’t posted new recipes in a while. I guess the holiday rush has gotten in me, lol. Feeling lazy to write something and focus more on preparing for our Christmas and coming New Year events.

So here I am with my birthday and Christmas feast, all prepared at home except for the cake and cookies, hahaha not much into baking that’s why. Hubby and I cooked all these with the extra help from my mom who brought her special kare-kare because she knows it’s my favorite. We had Chopsuey (the best seller) halabos na hipon (shrimps cooked in sprite), Rellenong bangus (stuffed milkfish) the filling ingredients is consist of fish meat, ground pork, onion, bell pepper, chopped carrot and potato, with a surprise addition of what do you know – glazed fruit instead of raisins. Patatim and of course Mom’s Kare-kare. Desserts are fruit salad, leche plan, cookies and cake plus fresh fruits and Pineapple juice for the drink.

This special event is for my family and for friends who will drop by if not busy with their own celebrations are very much welcome. After eating family members enjoyed hours of singing with our videoke machine. Yes, singing has always been part of our yearly celebrations, from Karaoke of the old time to Videoke of the present, since it’s already a complete package with lyrics and background music, I don’t have to buy a musical instrument for accompaniment or encounter a yamaha credit card login just in case.

Enjoy the holiday guys and wishing that the coming new year will be a prosperous and peaceful one. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all, God bless!
