After two weeks of being away from us, my mother is back again. She went back to Manila to do so important things. She brought us some Filipino delicacies that I so missed such as Lala, local chocolate candy; Choc-nut, a combination of ground peanuts, milk, sugar and cocoa; Polvoron of Goldilocks; Yema, it's a sweet concoction made with milk and egg yolks; Matamis-na-Sampaloc, sweet tamarind candy; Hopia-Mongo, its a pastry filled with sweet split mung bean paste & Hopia-Ube, its a pastry filled with sweet split purple yam paste of Eng Bee Tin; Cinnamon bread from Red Ribbon; and Mamon of Goldilocks, a Filipino version of sponge-cake. Plus some other stuff for the kids and a rosary from my uncle. A sweet pasalubong from my mum and family back in Manila. Our dining table is now full of those delicacies. I love seeing those in our table.
