taste good....good food !

It all started back again in August when some colleagues at work and I had the idea of going on food trips. The first one was in September. Then another in October. Then again November.

Little by little, I found myself searching my old recipe cards and listing down menus and soon enough, i'm back into the kitchen! hehehe... Now and then, i am packing lunches, and the long-loved obento ideas just came in handy. Though my own lunches are not fully Japanese or as artsy and delightful as the ones from Biggie or the Missus of Shizuoka Gourmet i try to pack in healthy goodies especially that my own work sched is what my former boss would dub as "erratic".

With Papa being a former migrant worker in Japan, I did grow surrounded with things Japanese like that gikandesho alarm clock and Anpanman posters and sakura coloring materials, Kerokerropi and a whole lot of other stuff and even when he was long back in the country, the influences never ceased to draw me. (ps. i used to want to get a government scholarship and study there but that's something i've put aside now..)

Even to this day, Papa would occasionally serve us some dishes with hints of Japanese and I do love the packed mixes and other ingredients that some relatives would send us from there. (EDIT: i wonder where the packages are now.. hehe it's just about Christmas time.. hehehe.. )

The whole idea of packed lunches is just one of those things that make me spring off my bed when the time is just right. Preparing the meals is just as fun as munching on them and sharing it to people who feel the same fulfillment at having partaken the meal make it just more than worth the hassle of waking up early to get busy and all in the kitchen!

........i'm just another writer still trapped within my truth........

i have forgotten about what it is to write...
to catch that in-between the silence and the heart’s beating…
and go about that divide which separates shadow from the ground…
Writing, my first love!
and so, i write. répondez s’il vous plaît.

naling'wan ko na kun pa'no an mag surat...
kun pa'no mahagilap an uya sa tahao kan kasilenciohan asin pag-ibot kan puso...
buda malakop iyan na nagbabanga sa anino asin daga...

An Pagsurat, sakuyang enot na pagkamoot!
biyo logod, ako minasurat. magsimbag ka.
