It is that time of the year again, as the end of the school year drawing closer a few of my daughter batch Parents already told me that they’re leaving Manila for good in Summer. Automatically I checked my schedule then pick up a day that a few of us could gather for lunch and started cooking. I believe in proper send off, I remember vividly all of the send off party that my friends did for me in our previous postings, one of the best memories of the place that we used to call home.
For this particular despedida lunch I made Indonesian Oxtail soup with Emping Belinjo ( Indonesian crisps) with spicy home made chilli sauce on the side, Roasted Chicken with Balinese sambal matah, roasted potatoes, steamed rice and chopped cucumber. my friend Khin brought delicious Thai Mango salad which is perfect compliment for the menu, unfortunately I forgot to take photo of my table spread! Nevertheless I did remember to take picture of the desserts, I baked chocolate cake with chocolate drip, vanilla cupcakes with buttercream frosting and strawberry dipped in chocolate.
Farewell Dani and Pipin, wishing you and your family all the best for your new adventure, thank you for the good times and may our paths crossed again someday xoxo
