Lechon....!!!

Being in the Netherlands for 6 years now with almost 4 years of not coming back to the Philippines, made me realized that it is not only the place that I missed more but it is also the FOOD. Although I can find most of the ingredients here (thank God I have a friend who owns a Toko that sells mostly of Filipino products), but sometimes the tastes are different.

Just after the Holiday, a friend of mine organized a thanksgiving dinner at her place just to thank all of her friends for the whole years' full of fun and happiness we shared. She knew that most of us missed "lechon/grilled pig" which we can rarely find it here, so she ordered this for our dinner. Unbelievable but yes, 12 people managed to ate 3/4 of the pig. It was ordered from a chinese restaurant through a Filipino contact and they cooked it from a big oven. No wonder it taste lechon but different from what we have in the Philippines cooked traditionally from a coal and the pig filled with spices on the tummy part. 


After so many years of craving lechon, glad I had it early this year.

Hi, Sihsi. I find your blog to be helpful. Glad that I came across your site. I am also a Pinay and I am interested in living in Europe. I have read several of your posts, and I liked reading them - they are both entertaining and informative. You make it sound like it is fun where you are. Hope to hear more from you. Please keep writing. :) Keep safe.

Hi again, Sihsi. I am thrilled to see that you have responded to my comment moreso overwhelmed by your warmth - Pinay ka nga talaga. :) Just read your new entry - cool pics. :) White tree branches, and even the bikes were snow-capped. And yeah, that was a bummer - your mom missing the snow.. Everyone turns into a kid again when it snows, I guess. And yeah, all the more that I wanna experience what it is like to be there. I do have questions that I believe you could help me with, and I am hoping I could send you messages instead of posting my questions or concerns as comments. Medyo dyahe lang kase. hehe.. I could only hope you would be okay with that, too. Salamat. :)
