Paskong Pinoy sa Pinas

Nothing says Pasko to me like piping hot bibingka and colorful puto bumbong. The delicious steam wafting from the makeshift pugon melds beautifully with the cold December breeze creating a symphony that spells Christmas in Pinas.

This scene brought me back to the holiday of things amidst the crazed busyness of the season. Between rushing office deadlines and buying last-minute gifts, the Grinch in me pokes its ugly head questioning the wisdom and necessity of running around trying desperately to have a merry, festive season.

Puto bumbong is best served with margarine and muscovado sugar.

Good thing good cheer is all around despite holiday traffic and incredible mall queues. And my go-to local delicacies never fail to satisfy.

So, the next time you see me turning green and growing facial hair, remind me to stop and smell the rice cakes.

Maligayang Pasko!
