I really love Thai food and I normally just drink water or tea with it, although authentic Filipino dishes are always on the top of my list.

Trivia: Pancit  is the term for noodles  in Filipino cuisine. Noodles  were introduced into the Philippines by the Chinese and have since been adopted into local cuisine. The term pancit is derived from the Hokkien pian i sit which means “something conveniently cooked fast.” Nevertheless, Pancit  is famous during birthdays in the Philippines, we believe that if you cook something long, it represents  long life, meaning the birthday celebrant wishes to live longer. Pancit Palabok is a communal comfort food, and can be found at nearly all Filipino potluck parties.

”Lonely Rose In The Darkness”


A lonely rose cultivated in the darkest corner of the garden

Surrounded by many other flowers

Yet the lonely rose remained alone

Time passed and trials came and went

One dealt a severe blow

And the rose began to wilt and wither

 

Forgotten…then… as if by a miracle

 

There came a soft and placid breeze

Followed by a ray of light

As all the other roses fell into darkness

The lonely rose began to shine

 

Shining with a special light…

And watered by a gentle cascade…

A cascade of love

A cascade of selfless affection

 

‘I do… not now but forever…’

Said the rose to the sunlight

And there they remain

A rose in full bloom

With her sunshine smiling down on her…

 

You are my sunshine, my life, my very soul

And I your rose am blooming in the light of your love.
