Ang kangkong, bow!

Masarap na katerno ng kahit na anong prito. Masarap na sawsawan ay bagoong o alamang o patis o kahit na asin lang para sa mga taong nangangati sa maalat. Sa ibang bansa, tinatawag ito ng aking mga kaibigang non-pinoy na “river spinach.” O hindi ba’t ang sosi?

Ito naman ang masarap na asparagus. Luntian ang kulay na pinatingkad ng aking piniritong unagi o isdang Hapon sa ibabaw ng mapulang pinggang Tsino! Yum!

At para sa edisyong ito ng Litratong Pinoy, nais kong ibahagi sa inyo ang maganda at luntiang lupain ni Frodo at Gollum. Ito po ang una kong neighborhood at ang ilan sa mga bulaklak sa kapaligiran. Luntiang pinatingkad ng iba pang mga kulay.

Para sa ika-16 linggo ng Litratong Pinoy na may temang Luntian (Berde).

I am not a professional cook. My only claim to having a culinary background is a short stint as my dad’s teen ‘sous chef’ in his carinderia ages ago. Dad ran small eateries since I was a young kid - serving standard ‘turo-turo’ food ranging from the likes of menudo, adobo, pritong isda, dinuguan, binagoongan, bopis, munggo, pinakbet and giniling to merienda fares like goto, ginataan, pancit bihon, halu-halo and saging con yelo.

My father, a farmer in his hometown before working his way to becoming an accountant, definitely influenced my cooking in a lot of ways than I thought. My siblings and I were raised in a backyard full of fruit trees and vegetable garden. We spent weekends and the summer breaks running around with ducks, chickens, goats and pigs. I had wonderful memories of gathering eggs, butchering chickens, selling vegetables and the sweet aroma of preserved fruits. But my love for art led me to a degree in Architecture. Just few months after getting my license, I went abroad and lived independently at age 23. Definitely no maid, no cook, and a totally different food culture. Along the way I met lots of friends and spent what seemed a lifetime learning new tricks and recipes.

Now living in Auckland, I am a work-from-home mum who juggles time between work, fun and family - in pursuit of work-life balance. No matter how busy I am, I love the idea of cooking for my family. My blog chronicles home cooking greatly influenced by life outside my home country from Southeast Asia to Beijing and Auckland. And most of the time, being busy also means easy (sometimes quick), affordable meals.
