Today I stumbled upon Cee’s new challenge for the year – Share your World. She also does the Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge which I sometimes join.
Maybe I’ve had too much wine or only because it is my birthday, I am going to be less shy sharing my world today. By the way, this will be part of my 365 Project: Day 6.And I share the celebration for today with my late sister, Aurora. She passed away when she was 2 and I was 3 then. She was being raised by my maternal great grandmother and grandaunts and she was visiting us when she contacted pneumonia. I could not forget her face – she was very beautiful and everyone loved her as she was an angel. At least now she’s not alone, my parents can dote on her now in Heaven.
Okay, now to Cee’s questions.
What are some of your favorite type of proteins to eat? (meat, eggs, soy, cheese, nuts).
My favorite proteins are surf and turf. Nothing like a thick, juicy and well marbled steak. And I like it medium rare. But I’d take very fresh seafood first if it is available. You have to understand, I came from the Philippines where we are surrounded by water and fresh seafood is in abundance.
Are you a morning or night person? I am definitely a morning person.
What is your preferred hot drink: coffee, tea, water or other? And as a morning person, I prefer coffee first thing in the morning.
Out of your five senses (touch, taste, sight, smell, hearing) which is your favorite?
This is the hardest question of them all. I love to cook so taste is very important to me. Then comes the aesthetic and smell part of it because if what you cooked is not attractive, it would not appeal to anyone to eat it and it must smell good.
My friend, Viv, cooked pansit (Filipino noodle dish) for my birthday. It is a tradition in our culture to have a noodle dish during our birthday, it means long life. This is something that was passed on to us by the Chinese. And since noodle dishes, particularly pansit, are my favorite, I must have eaten a lot. In the Philippines, there are so many ways of preparing this dish, each person must have their own recipe.
And since we haven’t had pansit for awhile, our stomachs got filled so fast at the first sight of it.
