So, what usually takes place when Pinays get together? Picture taking! That’s right! So when few Pinay friends came and visited me last Friday, I didn’t mind smiling at the camera with them, even with my huge and
ugly face, because these girlfriends are so cool and nice to be around!
It was an impromptu visit actually. The fact that I and my husband are both Filipino, we don’t mind impromptu visits here at our humble abode. It was just Melds, Te Eve, and me who planned to get together Friday afternoon to cook some Binignit since it was Melds’ off from work and she and Te Eve just live closed to us. However, when Ate Nora from another town asked me where I got my Malunggay plant after seeing the photo I uploaded at Facebook, I offered her a couple of seeds which she can get if she’s interested. She was, and so I told her that Friday afternoon would be perfect since we will be making Binignit. Sure enough, she came Friday afternoon with four more Pinays! And then, we had a great time at my kitchen, at my very small and simple (pinobre) kitchen!
I sure enjoyed their visit. As usual, endless laughter brought by those funny chats are always the highlight. I had them indulged in a typical lunch that we usually have here at home– rice with Tuna soup, Monggo nga gulay, atchara for appetizer, the fried chicken that they brought, the sweet treats that they brought, too, some ice candies that are still in my fridge, and then, this uber yummy binignit that we feasted on:
…and these ladies had a happy tummy that day!
That visit of theirs was their way of seeing me before I give birth. They have been planning on giving me a Baby Shower party but because our schedules won’t match these days, they just agreed to have the party once Baby #2 is here. I am sure that will be more fun!
I love how these Pinay friends enjoy our very simple abode every time! Makes them feel very much at home because of our typical Visayan dwelling– pinobre kaayo, plus all typical foodies in my kitchen!
