Rainy Sunday Indoor Picnic

Blooms in the Rain

Who says rain dampens the appetite for a picnic? Not Alain and Marianne, friends who just arrived from a 3-week European holiday. The first thing Alain did as soon as he got back in Ilocos was to completely lose himself in Dawang’s best in the world paksiw.

Indoor Picnic

Yesterday wasn’t exactly a picnic potluck. Shared Lynne’s newly perfected diok pit he, some Chinese-style stuffed prawns inspired by Diao Eng Chai’s, while Marianne served swaje, polonchai, pasta, grilled ribeye steak, unnok and pancit with chicharon aka lechon de carajay from La Moda Panciteria.

Filipino readers abroad will agree with me that taste buds won’t forget.


Abraw a unnok! Don’t you miss this?

The blauearth in me was jealous about their food adventure. Cheese fondue, Ladurée macarons, fish and chips, all the Italian pizzas and pastas, gelato, cappuccino, Swiss chocolates and what-not.
