Biko

>> Tuesday, January 12, 2010

Biko, puto and other kakanin (rice cakes) have always been a part of our New Year's Eve feast, if you are a Pinoy, I guess you already know why, and if you're not in the know, let me explain why - the food that I had mentioned are all made of glutinous or sticky rice and it's a common belief among Filipinos that serving one on your table as you welcome the coming year will basically help your family to bond and stick together. See the logic? Eat sticky/glutinous rice-made cakes and your entire family will get to stick together the entire year (not literally, okay *grins*).



My nanay had it made in small servings para you can grab and eat fast, there's no need for a plate and utensils. And she got what she hoped for, everyone were dashing and picking it piece by piece, muntik na nga wala matira nung kainan na talaga eh, hahaha.

About Me

I am a wife to the sweetest person on Earth and a mother to the cutest baby boy in the planet. I love reading literary books but I have an addiction in contemporary/renaissance romance novels. I am a video game aficionado in the truest sense of the word. I love to travel the world, if and only given the opportunity. I don't know how to cook (but I'm slowly learning) so there's a fascination with take-outs and dine-ins. I could go on and on but I guess you had enough *lol*.
