Last night, we went to a night market so I can buy flowers and bibingka. I love this photo of people cooking bibingka (rice cake) here on the street. The purple food is called puto bong bong (rice cake with coconut and sugar).
We ate at lomi house in lipa city yesterday before going to mataasnakahoy. My mom ordered lomi- a local specialty of noodles, egg, meat and thickened by cassava flour. A very filling soup. I got the pork adobo with rice. Yum except for the fat on the meat.
Got this announcement from my friends at OCAPICA. Looks like a great event to support!
