Happy Thanksgiving!


Hey y'all!

We Filipinos do not celebrate Thanksgiving, but since I live in Canada me and my housemates decided to at least cook something for dinner.

In the Philippines we have "Fiestas" (festival). Fiestas are held to celebrate a patron saint (the Philippines is the only majority-Christian country in Southeast Asia) or to mark the passage of the seasons, depending on which part of the country you're in. The sole exception is Christmas, where the whole country breaks out in celebrations that can begin long before December.

I can describe fiestas in 2 words, FOOD & DRINKS!  It is also a time to reunite with friends, family & relatives.


 Pancit Palabok (Filipino noodle dish), Embutido (similar to meatloaf), Chicken wings & Leche Flan (also known as Caramel custard)- I made this one!
Macaroni Salad & Asparagus with Shrimp- I made this one too.


And for us Filipinos, parties or gatherings would not be complete without....Karaoke! 



Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
