An afternoon of corner-to-corner, wall-to-wall, bumper-to-bumper fraternizing with the best possible company -- food, glorious food!

Filipino cuisine is slowly wedging its foot in the international food scene. The difficulty lies in how to translate the usual family-style servings to something that's more french gourmet (read: sophisticated) looking to be more easily accepted by the other parts of the world. Albeit it would be splendid to see adobo or sinigang in some minimalist and artistic creation (I love watching chefs' different plating techniques), sometimes though, those big servings are the ones that spell comfort and home, and I think those are some of the endearing characteristics of Filipino food, one fact that is equally important to portray to the rest of the globe.

No, I don't always lug a big camera around my neck. Having two kids who are always with me makes it impractical to do so. When I know we'll be dining out, I bring the DSLR. Otherwise, I know I can always count on my iPhone.
