The Sunbaked King

Family Affair

Alam mo Wing [yes, that’s my nickname], you’re not teaching your brother the right virtues, like frugality. Yang pakain-kain niyo sa mga mamahaling restaurants, it teaches all the wrong things. Dapat turuan mong magtipid.ย Basahin mo yung 8 Secrets of the Truly Rich by Bo Sanchez. Maganda ang mga tips niya.

Di ba religious guy yun, Pa? Baka naman puno ng religious interjections ang book niya.

Hindi, hindi. Walang religion-religion. Puro financial tips lang.

Meet my dad. Finding ways to bridge financial and spiritual success.

“Wing, nagdala ako ng paksiw para sa Papa mo.

Kenneth: “Yan pala ang binabalot ni Mama kanina.

Kerwin: “Dapat quarantined yan.

Ang mahal ng mga pagkain dito sa Manila. Di tulad sa Davao. Di pa masasarap yang mga restaurants na kinakainan mo. Mga weird.”

Di ka lang sanay, Ma.

Mas magaling pa ako magluto nung mga pagkain. Mura pa.

Meet my mom. Maintaining an orderly household through home-cooked meals and ukay-ukay, one leche flan at a time, one imported shirt at a time.

Papa arrived last November 2. Mama arrived last November 8. They’ll be staying here until the end of the month. With Kenneth in tow, it feels good to be almost complete again (Kuya remains isolated in Davao). Never mind the lectures about saving, being my brother’s keeper, my taste in restaurants, the cleanliness of our room, my bonus and its future whereabouts, and healthy living. I’m just glad they’re here.

Ladies and gentlemen, mi familia hermosa:

    my mom and dad are both kapampangans pero di sila marunong magluto. How I wish marunong sila gumawa ng leche plan ๐Ÿ™‚ Sayang lang we can’t be complete in a family picture ever.

    @ White: Where, White? ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks. Sayang wala si Kuya.

    @ J: My mom’s leche flan is the bestest in the world. Way better than the one I had in Gilligan’s. Haha. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’ll share my leche flan once I get back from Davao. ๐Ÿ˜›
