Happy Easter to everyone!

The Holy Week break is over and tomorrow...I will be reporting back for work. Goodbye late night movies and siestas.

But before I finally bid goodbye to my almost one week vacation, allow me to share with you more pictures of how I spent the past days.

On Good Friday, my family drove all the way to Bulacan to visit my Tita (Auntie) Emy's family. I have blogged about my Tita Emy's house last year. When I wrote that post, I remember having zero followers. Hahaha!  At that time, it was only me who reads my blog. I wanted to show everyone of how beautiful is my Tita Emy's garden. Here are some reposted pictures

The beautiful flower garden now turned to this

The flowers are all gone and it made me a bit sad. But my Tita Emy said she has better plans for the garden. She is working for a mini vegetable garden and to start with, here is her initial potential harvest
Fresh garden tomatoes!

The leaves and the soil looks so dry because of the intense weather condition in my country. It's summer here and the temperature do not favor planting. But in God's time and Tita Emy's perseverance, I know she could turn this picture to a green and healthy garden.

Another potential harvest
It might take months before my family will be able to visit Tita Emy again. But on our next visit, I am very optimistic that Tita Emy's green thumb can turn great wonders for this garden.

And how could I forget this 
I don't often see this especially in the city. 

During our visit, Tita Emy also treated us with healthy and the best tasting Filipino foods.

My all time favorite

Sapin Sapin

We call this "Sapin Sapin." In English, the term is literally translated as layers.It is called Sapin Sapin because it is made of layers of different colors. Sapin Sapin is made of glutinous rice, coconut milk and sprinkled coconut flakes. 

Sapin Sapin is cooked manually and this is what I appreciate about it. The process include the careful selection and endless mixture of all the ingredients to produce each different layer. Unlike those that are sold in bakeshops, what I love about the home made Sapin Sapin is its presentation. The traditional Sapin Sapin is placed on a "bilao" (winnow) on top of fresh Banana leaves.

 Another healthy Filipino snack
Boiled Peanuts
Sorry for the messy table. These two adorable kids were the culprits
Jasper and Fhaye
I spent my Holy Week vacation mostly at home with my family. Today is Easter Sunday and to start the week right, I attended the Easter Mass with my mother. 
Christ has risen!
Christ has risen to let us know that we are saved. Come with the celebration of the Easter Sunday, I pray that I shall also rise from all those sadness, worries and miseries. In God's time, I hope.. I will be fine.
