In my previous post, I mentioned how we, the sovereign Filipino people, are professional eaters. But this is not the only thing we are good at. We also know how to party. In fact, we do not just party. We goddamn feast.
The first hallmark of a Filipino celebration: it must absolutely be over-catered.
No, we do not have any sense of portion control or any idea about proper consecutive servings of dishes from appetizer to dessert.
Free-for-all or bust!
Everything is laid out: from heaping plates of lumpia to pot after pot of tomato-based stews.
More important, the very meaning of a local fiesta: lechon!
I never miss an opportunity to wax poetic about this beauty. I assure you, I have a soul-deep, electrifying connection with this gorgeous, glowing pig.
Healthy eating gurus may not be done, but I am!
