Misa de Gallo starts today. I have never ever attended one and maybe I should. The reason why is that I was never too masipag enough to wake up very early, sit through a mass, and promise not to fall asleep. Considering that I've never lived far from a church my entire life, it's weird that I've never attended one. Be it here or back the Philippines, the church is always walkable. Well, of course, not during the winter but still IT'S VERY NEAR my house.
And of course, when talking about Pinoy traditions, FOOD can't be missing. The puto bumbong, the tsokolate, the salabat, and the bibingka. Prepare your Kleenex. Nakakaiyak sila.
I like this REALLY chocolate-y tsokolate. I like my chocolate drink bitter, rich, and somewhat thick. That's why I don't like the ones you usually find in the grocery. I don't like milk in my chocolate. (Which also explains why I don't like milk chocolate candy bars.) I think my mom bought me a dark choco drink before. I can't remember. Maybe I should raid Superstore and find out if they have rich chocolate.
WAAAAH! This is what I miss about Pinoy Christmas: THE FOOD. LOL I remember my mom's cousin makes really good bibingka and puto bumbong. My sister would request them everyday so we have them everyday after school. WAAH I miss those days!
