Because the sun was shining brightly! It was 22 degrees and the warm kiss of the sun was divine.
My sister and I happened to have an unplanned several days off from work so we didn’t know what to do with ourselves. We shopped, we watched a movie, we bought ourselves lots of tea and she cooked bicol express.
Now bicol express is a spicy dish. It is made of pork that’s sliced in tiny pieces and cooked in red chilli and creamy coconut milk. The smell was delicious.
But it was so spicy we couldn’t eat it. She admitted to adding more chilli flakes on top of the red chilli so we ended up having burning mouth and stomach. We sat there at the table laughing so hard while trying not to choke on the sweets we’re shoving in our mouths in an attempt to soothe our blistering tongues. We ended up washing the meat then deep frying them.
Tomorrow I’m cooking buttered shrimp. Hope it won’t be a disaster.
