Sa background ay ang aking mahal na anak na maligayang kumakain ng ice cream. Sa kutsara naman ay ang reflection ng kanyang mahal na ina stage mom… inang parating may dalang camera. Bisyo na ang kunan ng larawan ang batang yan. Bisyo din ang maki-extra sa larawan. Pansin nyo ba ang lalim ng cleavage?

Heto humirit pa pero nag-jacket na. Oops, nahuli ng bata…

(Reflection in a spoon)

Heto pa ang isang katibayan. Huling-huli ang mga kamay ng atribidang inang may hawak na camera. Kuha nung nakaraang Holy Week sa Britomart.

(Reflection on the surface of stainless steel water feature)

Ayon nga sa kasabihan, “the hand that rocks the cradle clicks the camera rules the world”.

Para sa Huwebes ng Litratong Pinoy na may temang “Mahal na Ina.”

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.

    Buti hindi naasar ang anak mo dahil sa iyong paulit-ulit na pag litrato sa kanya habang siya ay kumakain ng ice cream… Sarap na sarap pa naman siya :)
