My Tolentino Apr 27, 2020

My first attempt of being a cook. It wasn’t so bad after all! I promised myself to have a productive “me/family” time this weekend so I helped my Mom cook our ulam for lunch! Here’s a short but tasty video of how we nailed our “Turbo Broiler Chicken”. I referred to yummy.ph’s recipe and just added rosemary for more flavor. Check out this link if you wish to try this as well!! https://www.yummy.ph/recipe/turbo-broiler-chicken-recipe-a394-20161022 It looked super good when we took it out of the broiler! The outer layer had the right crisp we wanted with so much flavor in it! Though we wished we marinated it longer than we had so that the meat absorbed more flavor. Well, we just thought of doing the recipe 2 hours before lunch so we just marinated it for an hour and cooked it for another hour LOL. But overall, SOBRANG SARAP!! (Okay, bias talaga ako sa chicken [at syempre ako nagluto] but totoo masarap talaga.) Despite knowing that ECQ is extended for another 2 weeks, i’m taking advantage of the “stay at home” moment to bond with my fam specially with my Mom. Aside from cooking, “iWantTV and chill” is also our quaranThing. We spend our weekend watching the most talked about Teleserye last 2017, Wildflower. Now you know what’s keeping me to start the Kdrama series on my list.

Cold Food

The most thrilling and delightful moment of any school day is opening up your baon during breaks. There is always so much excitement in unveiling your homemade meal and snacks housed inside matching heat-insulating containers. Because preparing packed meals is an age-old tradition of showing parental love, loved ones pour effort into curating a nutritious meal accompanied by a selection of side dishes, desserts, and beverages daily; it reminds us that we are being taken care of, even from far away.

Baon plays a significant role in a Filipino childhood. Almost every Filipino child comes to school with baon made especially for them by their parents or household helpers. Even Filipinos in the labor force continue to bring baon for varying reasons: to save money, recycle leftovers, cater to personal taste, or attend to special needs. Nonetheless, eating your baon is a heart-warming experience that allows Filipinos to bring a piece of home along with them wherever they go.

Even other cultures practice making packed lunch. In Japan, mothers create bento--Japanese meals in partitioned boxes. Because of the popularity of bento, trends have emerged, such as the Kyaraben, or character-themed bento. Naturally, Japanese parents and students began competing for who had the cutest and tastiest bento, and this is similar to what I have witnessed in my own childhood. I remember seeing my classmates sharing their snacks and lunches. They would compare and boast about their parents' or yayas’ cooking. In my case, I never had the chance to join in the competition or indulge in homemade cooking. Up until this day, I have never brought any baon to school.

For a long time, I envied others. As trivial or petty as it may seem, not having baon became a problem for my grade school self. During that time, I had to sit in a separate cafeteria away from my friends because the kids who bought food were assigned to sit elsewhere. You could consider me spoiled, but I wanted to experience something most kids did. I had food at home, so what made it so hard to bring some with me to school?

Now that I am on my final year in high school I have come to realize the benefits of purchasing my own food. Since I spent on food everyday, I learned to budget my allowance at a young age. Over the years, I learned to practice self-control whenever I wanted to eat more greasy fries and drink sweetened beverages. I have tasted the strangest viands at the school cafeterias, and I have repeatedly satiated myself over my latest delicious discoveries. Despite the struggles, I am thankful that I have never had baon because of what I have learned. Not to mention, I never had to experience eating cold food.
