7 All-time Favorite Dishes Filipinos Serve on Christmas Noche Buena

7 All-time Favorite Dishes Filipinos Serve on Christmas Noche Buena

If there’s one vice that shouldn’t be eliminated, that would be eating. Christmas is a season of giving, fun, and renewed association and bond with family and friends, and LOTS of eating. We can say that it is during this time of the year that diets are out of the list. Here are some of the all-time favorite dishes Filipinos serve on Christmas Noche Buena.

Want to surprise your family with Lechon? It’s possible with BayanMall Online Shopping! Just click here.

 

  1. Lechon

Who can ever forget this one in a Filipino feast? This has and will always be the star of any celebration. Also called litsong baboy, it came from the Spanish term that means “roasted suckling pig.” After seasoning, the whole pig is cooked by skewering the entire animal, entrails removed, on a large stick and cooking it in a pit filled with charcoal. The pig is placed over the charcoal, and the stick or rod it is attached to is turned in a rotisserie action. The pig is roasted on all sides for several hours until done. The process of cooking and basting usually results in making the pork skin crisp and is a distinctive feature of the dish.

It is the Philippines’ national dish, with Cebu being acknowledged by American chef Anthony Bourdain as having the best pig. The famous lechonmakers and sellers in the Philippines include Mila’s Lechon, Lydia’s Lechon, Aling Nene, Pingping, and Mang Tomas! You can even turn the leftovers into Lechon Paksiw so no part of the roasted pig ever gets wasted! Now, I’m hungry.

Cheesy spaghetti for your children this Christmas! Just like old times! Shop now while it’s CHEAPER! Just click here.
  1. Spaghetti

This will forever remain a favorite dish, especially with children. It’s been with almost every event that you can sometimes get tired of eating it! The good news is that many people create their own versions of spaghetti! But while spaghetti is preferred by foreigners to be a bit sour, for us, we prefer it to be sweet! Meatier and cheesier too! Our taste buds just beg to differ!

  1. Christmas Ham

Probably the best alternative to lechon, ham takes the limelight of the food on the table during Christmas. It costs around Php 250 or higher, depending on the brand and the size of the ham. It is often bought as a gift as well. You might also consider it as a means of additional income during the Christmas season. Now isn’t that just great?

  1. Fried Chicken

This is probably one of the most common dish on any Filipino occasion as well. Fried chicken is a crunchy, mouthwatering delight. The dish has created a large number of spin-off recipes which are commonly used around the world.

  1. Fruit Salad

Christmas in the Philippines is rarely without fruit salad. This is very popular in the country because of the abundance in fruits. It is easy to prepare and considered a staple in parties and gatherings. Similar to the dessert Ambrosia, it differs in terms of the fruit ingredient. In the Filipino context, that usually means drained canned fruit cocktail and shredded fresh coconut tossed in a mixture of cream and sweetened condensed milk. But because fresh fruits cost a lot more than fruit cocktail, most Filipinos choose the latter.

Macaroni salad for Christmas at home? Shop now while it’s CHEAPER! Just click here.
  1. Macaroni Salad

This is a salad that everyone seems to love. Like other pasta, Filipinos come to develop their own versions of this popular dessert from the west. Aside from the usual macaroni, cream and mayo, it can be packed with shredded chicken, cubed cheese and ham, raisins and crushed pineapple. We have just turned it into something much more delicious to the taste – our very own twist.

The sweet temptation. Shop the ingredients to this wonderful dessert by clicking here.
  1. Leche Flan

Known by the world as the Spanish flan, leche flan is the one the wonderful ways to end the Christmas night with a bang. Leche, the Spanish for milk, is one of the dessert’s two main ingredients. Filipino leche flan is a rich steamed custard topped with a syrupy caramel. It is made with egg yolks, evaporated milk and sweetened condensed milk. It is one of the most popular desserts served at parties, fiestas and other special occasions. This sweet dish is also popular in some Latin American and Caribbean countries. Among the Hispanic population of North America, leche flan is also known as creme caramel.

Two soldiers including a commander sacrifice their lives to save their wounded comrade in Marawi City

Captain Rommel “Daredevil” Sandoval. He is the commander of the 11th Scout Ranger Company in Marawi City and led his group to rescue his comrade and bravely sacrificed his life to prevent another casualty from his men. He was the first casualty from his company.

September 10, 2017, the 11th Scout Ranger Company soldiers led by Captain Rommel “Daredevil” Sandoval were already on the second floor of the building they raided when they planned to save Corporal Jayson Mante. Five bullets and a grenade explosion from the Maute Terrorist Group left Corporal Mante wounded. He got stuck on the first floor of the building. Captain Sandoval decided to save him and was accompanied by Private First Class Sherwin Canapi. He asked his remaining men to cover for them.

The Rescue Mission

I-cover fire niyo ako!” (Cover me!) Capt. Sandoval said before he started his mission together with Private Canapi. They successfully reached the location of Corporal Mante and confirmed that he’s still alive. However, several Maute terrorists located them and led to an inevitable battle.

They tried to fight back, but unfortunately, a bullet hit Captain Sandoval’s cheek that resulted to his death. Meanwhile, Private Canapi also got fatally wounded and killed during the mission.

Private First Class Sherwin Canapi. His companions describe him as a ‘talented person.’ He knew how to paint, write songs, talented in sports and good in writing reports.

Naabutan pa niya ang tao niya (Corporal Mante) at nakunan ng pulso. Kaso inabangan siya ng maraming ISIS at binaril una sa tagiliran. Kahit na dalawa lang sila, naka fire back pa [sila] sa mga bumabaril sa kanila. Kaso fatal ang sunod na tama ni Captain Sandoval sa pisngi,” Scout Ranger Books Facebook Page said in their Facebook post.

Translation: He was able to find [Corporal Maute] alive with a pulse. Unfortunately, a lot of the ISIS saw and waited for them. They hit him at his side. Even though it was just the two of them [in the scene], they were able to fire back at the enemies. But the next hit at Captain Sandoval’s cheek was fatal.

These two brave soldiers died in battle, but they have successfully saved the life of Corporal Mante, who’s now being treated in a hospital.

Scout Ranger Books compared the story of Captain Sandoval to the famous war movie “Saving Private Ryan” where the lead character died rescuing his comrade.

Last September 13, President Rodrigo Duterte visited the wake of soldiers Captain Sandoval and Private Canapi to honor them personally.

Soldier’s baby died 3 hours after he sacrificed his life for the country

A soldier father and his baby dies on the same day

Last September 16, a pregnant woman went on to a forced labor after hearing the death of her boyfriend, Corporal Jaime Invento, during the battle at Bato Mosque in Marawi. Unfortunately, their baby died three hours after his death. According to the news information, she became so stressed after she knew of her husband’s death and resulted to the early birth of their baby.

This Armed Forces of the Philippines successfully forced the Maute Group to abandon Bato Mosque in Marawi after a five hour long battle during that day. Among them was Corporal Jaime Invento, a scout ranger. A bullet fatally hit him in his neck which killed him immediately. The operation left four other soldiers wounded.

Moreover, the government forces were able to rescue two hostages: Catholic Priest Terisoto “Chito” Suganob and Lordvin Ocopio, a teacher of Dansalan College in Marawi. Chito Suganob has been a hostage of the Maute Terrorists for almost four months.

To date, Corporal Invento is the 45th scout ranger killed-in-action in Marawi City.

The Final Battle

Here’s what the Scout Ranger Books Facebook fan page posted:

Katulad ng typical Scout Ranger, si late Corporal Jaime Invento ay tahimik lang. Pero sa dedication niya sa trabaho, siya yung tipong ipapagkatiwala mo ang buhay mo sa kanya. Napakabait din na kaibigan dahil bago nila simulan ang mission na kunin ang ISIS stronghold na Bato Mosque kahapon, minabuti pa niyang regaluhan ng combat boots ang kanyang buddy na may birthday kahapon. Pero sa pag assault nila sa mosque, natamaan siya sa leeg ng dalawang bala at namatay on the spot. Sa kasamaang palad, di kinaya ng misis niya ang masamang balita at nag forced labor. Namatay ang kanilang bagong silang na anak tatlong oras lang pagkatapos mamatay ang kanyang Daddy Ranger. Si late Jaime Invento ang pang 45 na killed-in-action namin na Scout Ranger. Mag request po kami ng dasal para sa kanyang kaluluwa at para sa anak niya.

[Translation: Like a typical scout ranger, the late Corporate Jaime Invento was a silent person. But when it comes to his dedication to his job, he’s the type of person you can entirely trust and depend on. He’s a very kind friend. Before they started the mission to take the ISIS stronghold in Bato Mosque yesterday, he gave his combat boots to his buddy as a birthday gift. But when they had the assault at the mosque, he was hit twice in the neck and died on the spot. Unfortunately, his wife wasn’t able to handle the sad news and had a forced labor. Their newborn baby died three hours after his Daddy Ranger died. The late Jaime Invento is our 45th scout ranger killed in action. We request for prayers for his and his child’s soul.]

Love Letters

During the interview with the Inquirer at St. Peter’s chapel last Sunday, Anne (not her real name) excused herself. She then went to her boyfriend’s coffin and continued scribbling on a piece of paper — a farewell letter to Invento.

“You have fought a good fight. It pains me more seeing you like this, but I’m letting you go now. Have a safe journey, Daddy. Always remember that you will always be my best ‘assaulter.’ You know how much I love you and I know how much you love me,” Anne said in her letter.

At the back of the paper is another letter for Invento written on June 29. She addressed the soldier as her “dearest superman” and wrote that she missed him.

“It’s been 36 days, eight hours, 15 minutes and 36 seconds since you went away. I know you are already tired and weary. Hold on, Mahal (my love), a little bit longer … and I love you so,” she said.

President Rodrigo Duterte signs free tuition fee for all SUCs

A new law providing free education for over a million students in public tertiary and vocational schools nationwide has been signed by President Rodrigo Duterte last August 3. Senior Deputy Executive Secretary Menardo Guevarra made this announcement in an August 4 forum. It continues the administration’s initiative in the 2017 budget, where around P8 billion was allotted for free tuition for SUCs for school year 2017-2018.

The Republic Act 10931 or “Universal Access to Quality Tertiary Education Act,” gives full tuition subsidy for students in State Universities and Colleges (SUCs), local universities and colleges, and state-run technical-vocational schools. The law also covers other charges, namely “library fees, computer fees, laboratory fees, school ID fees, athletic fees, admission fees, development fees, guidance fees, handbook fees, entrance fees, registration fees, medical and dental fees, cultural and other similar or related fees.” It also provides subsidies or stipend for poor students and establishes a student loan program.

In addition, the Commission on Higher Education announced on June 16 it would be offering cash grants for medical students in public medical schools.

However, students with financial capacity may choose not to avail of the subsidies through a mechanism created by the SUCs and local universities and colleges or LUCs.

Questions over cost and beneficiaries

Budget Secretary Benjamin Diokno told lawmakers on August 2 that subsidizing tuition in public tertiary schools would be too costly. Guevara said that free tuition will have an estimate of around ₱100 billion. According to him, the government cannot afford that.

Diokno also added that only middle-class and upper-class students would benefit from the scheme because, statistically, only 12 percent of the poor get to the state universities. So, [in a sense] it will actually subsidize the rich.

However, opposition lawmakers said in an August 3 statement the free tuition law would cost only around ₱15 billion.

Hindi po totoo ang sinabi ng economic managers na hindi kayang tustusan ng gobyerno,” said Bayan Muna Rep. Carlos Zarate. “Napatunayan natin ngayong taon, may pondo para sa state universities and colleges. Hindi nila pwede sabihin na ngayong taon ‘di kayang pondohan.

[Translation: The economic managers’ claim that the government can’t afford to subsidize tuition fees is not true. We’ve proven this year that there is money for state universities and colleges. They can’t say this year that there’s no more money.]

Why Parojinog’s mansion was demolished after Duterte assumes office

When Rodrigo Duterte assumed office as president, the Parojinogs demolished their mansion in Ozamiz City and lived instead in a smaller house. The Parojinogs have been political kingpins in Ozamis City. As to why they demolished the house remained a mystery to the residents there. Some said that Parojinogs did it to avoid more suspicions in their involvement in illegal activities.

Last week, City Chief of Police Senior Inspector Jovie Espenido visited the old mansion of the Parojinogs in Bacakay, Ozamiz City.

As if hindi sila mayaman, bumalik na sa kanilang bahay na maliit para siguro… eh alam naman ng lahat na involved sila sa drugs,” Espenido told TV 5.

Translation: “To present themselves as not rich people, they went back to their little, old house… then again, everyone knew they were involved in durgs.”

Espenido suspected that the family was hiding something from the current administration.

The Discovery

According to the information received by the authorities, the old mansion of the Parojinogs became a ‘cemetery’ for their political foes and illegal drug trade competitors. They believe that it is also a meeting place of the alleged members of their syndicate to plan for their next crime. Brgy. Captain Ludvina Macayran has received complaints from the residents in the area about a foul odor sometime in February that made the council filled the place with trucks of soil.

Because of that, Espenido ordered the Ozamiz PNP to dig the demolished mansion for proof.

They found no human bodies. Rather, they only obtained sacks of garbage. Two sacks tied with rope only contained bones and feathers of animals.

The Parojinog Raid

Meanwhile, 16 people were killed during the anti-drug raid in Ozamiz City, including Mayor Aldong Parojinog and Board Member Octavio Parojinog. The police arrested Vice Mayor Nova Princess Parojinog and other members of the Parojinog clan. The vice mayor was discovered to have a relationship with Herbert “Ampang” Colangco, one of the suspected Bilibid drug lords.

After the operations, a man identified as ‘Noel’ claimed that he had worked as hitman and drug courier for 20 years for them. He admitted that he was ordered to pick up shabu from National Bilibib Prison several times and deliver it to Ozamiz City. According to Noel, the Parojinogs divided the illegal drugs he delivered and started to sell it to other pushers in Ozamiz. They were also involved in holdup operations, and murdering their political foes and business competitors. He also mentioned that he chopped bodies of the people who were ordered to be killed before burying them. Information point out the mansion as the said place.

New Ozamiz City

As a result of the absence of leadership, Irene Engracia Luansing became the acting mayor of Ozamiz and Michael Llamas Tagal as acting vice mayor.

The locals in Ozamiz City publicly expressed their views against the Parojinog family. They wore white shirts and attended the rally. They believe that this will give birth to a new Ozamiz City.

A community prayer in front of Ozamiz City Hall on Sunday was led by Pastor Nathaniel Dinoro.

How do you know that He/She is “The One”?

Jollibee’s New Ad

Remember the Jollibee ads that brought us all into tears? Well, “The Vow” segment takes us to a back story of meeting your perfect pair at the perfect time.

Finding “The One”

Indeed, one of the most complicated, but most fulfilling experience in the world is to love and be loved in return. But inasmuch as we want to know sooner if he/she is the one, it most often does take time to know and feel. So, we wonder, how do we know? Well, we should have realistic expectations and realize that we marry potential and not perfection. Jeremy Goff shares five signs that they are the right one for you!

1) They put in effort.

If marriage is meant to be a two-way partnership, then dating needs to be a two-way road as well. If you find yourself in a relationship where you are putting in all, or almost all of the effort it is a red flag that the other person is either not right, or not ready.

One of the best pieces of dating advice I have ever been given was by my sister Paige. I was chasing a girl that I liked and Paige asked me, “Does this girl put in any effort?” She then continued “When you find the right girl, she will put in as much effort to making it work as you do. If she is not putting in the effort she is not the one.” I did not want to hear that because this girl was not putting in any effort. Eventually, the relationship fizzled out and I realized Paige was right. For a relationship to last, both people must be fully invested.

When you find the right one they will recognize what you are worth the effort. You will both sacrifice and both be willing to pay any price to be together. When you find the person that you are willing to do that for and who is willing to do it for you, then you’ve found the one.

“Just as harmony comes from an orchestra only when its members make a concerted effort, so harmony in marriage also requires a concerted effort.”

Russell M. Nelson

2) They put God first, but put you second.

This one is huge. Most people think that they need to put their spouse first, but God really needs to be number one. This will ground them to their core principles of honesty, faith, sacrifice, forgiveness, and most of all their commitment to keeping their promises. You not only need to find someone who puts God first but also someone who will not begrudge you for putting God ahead of them. In all things, our covenants to God must come first. Ask yourself, if I was to die, would they raise my family in the faith? A big secret in successful marriages is something called the marriage triangle, God is at the top and husband and wife are at the bottom corners. As a husband and wife draw closer to God they actually draw closer to their spouse. Happy couples put God first.

After God, your spouse should be a solid #2.  No one and nothing else, other than God, should come before your spouse. Too many Millennials are selfish, they put themselves before others, and even before God. This attitude will destroy any relationship. Lasting marriages have men and women who have put God first, but their spouse in front of themselves. They forgive each other, they serve, love, and desire to make their spouse feel happy and loved. So when you find the one who puts God first and you second, you’ve found the right one.

“Believe that your faith has everything to do with your romance, because it does. You separate dating from discipleship at your peril.”

Jeffrey R. Holland

3) They love you right now.

Your future spouse should inspire you to be more than you are. But they should be completely in love with you, not a future you that has lost those 15 lbs, not you without your nerdism, but you that you are currently. One of the biggest mistakes single people make is thinking that they need change the elusive ‘something’ to find the right one. I can’t tell you how many guys go to the gym to get a body to find a girl. Seriously, people, if they would not give you the time of day because you can stand to lose 15 lbs, then they are not the right one!

It reminds me of the scene in How to Train your Dragon where Hiccup is talking with his dad who says he needs to change and then just points at Hiccup. Who then replies, “You just gestured to all of me.” to which his dad replies, “deal?” Later in the movie, his dad says, “Turns out all we needed was a little more of…” as he points at hiccup.

Your future spouse will love you, all of you! No stipulations. Yes, they should inspire you to be better a better person, but they will never require it. They will accept and love you with all of your nerdisms and your quirks. They will love you for who you are, right now. Their love is not based on how you look, but who you are. They will love you as you grow and change over time. When you have found someone who loves you like that, you’ve found the one.

“Choose your love; love your choice.”

Thomas S. Monson

4) They Make Time For You.

One of the biggest lies we tell in dating is when someone asks you on a date and you reply “I am too busy.” This is a lie both to them and to you. They are not too busy for a date, but only a date with that person. If the person of their dreams called asking them on a date they would clear their schedule for them. The truth is that everyone is busy. However, they always make time for the things and people they care about. If they are unwilling to make time for you, they are saying they don’t care. As my sister, Jennifer once said, “Nothing is ruder than not giving someone the time of day.”

On the flip side, you have the person who makes time for you. Sure they are busy, they have obligations they need to fulfill, work, school, church, etc. But they find a way to make time for the people they care about. The truth is there are a lot of activities we do that if you wanted to make time for another person you could do it with them. You could cook dinner together, study together, go shopping together. If they make time for you, you’ve found the right one.

“Love is really spelled t-i-m-e.”

Dieter F. Uchtdorf

5) They Make Time For You.

Everyone has dreams. Pursuing a dream is a scary thing that requires the support of those around you. No one will be a bigger support than your future spouse. Finding someone who not only encourages you but also enables you to live your dream is vital. I learned this when my oldest sister was dating her now husband. When things got serious he told her, “I am ready to give up my art for you.” Confused, she asked him what he was talking about? He explained that his parents told him that when he finally found a girl he loved he would have to give up his art and get a ‘normal job’ for her. She replied, “I would never let you give up art.”

You’ve found the right one when you are willing to give up everything for them, but they would never let you do it. They see your dreams and realize that it is the essence of who you are. They are willing to sacrifice to help you reach your aspirations, and therefore enabling you to live your dream.

News: Manny Pacquiao Hands Money To Kids

Manny Pacquiao is one of the most well-known and greatest boxers in the world. His boxing skills are undeniably great. He is currently serving the Philippines as a Senator.

Many people have said the he should retire from boxing since he already has a good and comfortable life, but Manny refused to retire.

One of the reason is because he wants to share what he has to the poor.

A video of him went viral where he was seen handing out stacks of cash. Manny kept reaching to his stacks and handing out the money to local kids and those who waited.

 

“This is why I still fight”, Manny said.

 

Here’s the video:

Other things he has done

Manny never forgets to share his blessings. He established businesses to help those who needed jobs. You can check them at pgoci.com. He also paid out of pocket for 1,000 homes to be built for the poor in his hometown.

“I’m so happy giving these houses free to my constituents in the Sarangani Province from my own pocket – more than thousand families are the beneficiaries,” he posted on Facebook.

Many of the millions used to finance the housing came from his ‘Fight of the Century’ with Floyd Mayweather on May 2, 2015. Though he lost by two judges scoring it at 116–112 and the other 118–110, he still was handsomely compensated for the highly-anticipated match.

He has been dubbed the greatest Asian boxer, the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world, and the second highest-paid athlete in 2015. While he finishes his six-year term as Senator, he plans on financing still more houses in his childhood hometown.

“I will never forget where I came from. I thank God for allowing me to help other people,” the former Congressman wrote on Twitter.

News: President Duterte’s Achievements in his first year in office

Photo by INQUIRER.net

President Rodrigo Roa Duterte is one of the most talked-about president in Philippine history. He is the first president to come from Mindanao and several controversies surrounded him from being a foul-mouthed character, iron fist ruling, to alleged extrajudicial killings.

But despite these controversies, and criticism from his political foes, he performed well during his first year as leader of Philippines. He proved to be a man of his words.

Here is a list of some of the notable things achieved by the Duterte administration for his first year:

What some senators have to say

While these achievements show the Duterte administration’s good performance, expressions of disappointment and criticism were thrown from opposition. Among them are Senators Antonio Trillanes IV, Risa Hontiveros, and Liela De Lima.

Senator Hontiveros labeled President Duterte’s presidency as ‘dangerous year to be a woman’ and ‘marked by a colossal human rights crisis.’

She said that 2017 ‘is a year of national grieving’ because of the alleged extrajudicial killings committed by the current administration against criminals.

In addition, Senator Leila De Lima labeled President Duterte’s first year in office as full of lies and fake news.

Isang taong mga kasinungalingan. Isang taong panggigipit. Isang taong pagmumura at pambabastos. Isang taong mga pangakong napako. Lalo na yung mga kasinungalingan. Fake cases. Lalo na itong mga paratang sa akin. Fake cases, fake news,” she said.

Translation: A year of lies. A year of pressure. A year of invective and harrasment. A year of unfulfilled promises. Especially the lies. Fake cases. Especially these allegations against me. Fake cases, fake news.

Recently, Senator Trillanes also thrown critical remarks to the administration in a BBC Hardtalk interview with Stephen Sackur.

Nevertheless, others, like Senate President Koko Pimentel and Senator Tito Sotto gave the president a high grade of 8.5/10 and 8/10, respectively.
