Mmm Monday: A Tasty Treat

Please share a photo of your favorite delicacy by clicking Mr. Linky below. Thank you.

Lechon
Location: Cebu, Philippines

 

Filipino Lechon

 
Lechon is the most popular dish in the Philippines served on holidays and special occasions such as weddings, birthdays, and anniversaries.

It’s a whole pig marinated with herbs and spices and roasted slowly on a spit over an open fire.

According to the late Anthony Bourdain, famous celebrity chef and food critic,Lechon from Cebu, Philippines, is the best roast pig he had ever tasted.

Back in the day, as Charles Lamb (1775-1834) wrote in his essay, A Dissertation Upon Roast Pig, the family cottage with the pig inside had to be burned down to enjoy this delicacy. Thank goodness, we don’t have to go to that extreme anymore.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Transient

Maravilla Beach, Tabuelan, Cebu, Philippines
 
We live in a transient world where nothing lasts forever. Love. Family. Friends. Sadness. Success. Disappointments. Hopelessness. You name it. They come and go as the tide of the ocean.

There are times, however, when we become so attached to a specific moment in our life, such as a relationship, that we lose our perspective. As a result, we become disheartened when it ends.

Wouldn’t it be nice if we can enjoy this kind of moment and be able to let go when the time comes?


 
In last night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, Anthony Hopkins, who turns 80 this year, was asked to share an important life lesson he has learned.

“Keep going,” he told Kimmel without hesitation.

“I like that,” the host said. Me, too. If I may, I want to add holding on to the good memories and leaving the bad ones behind.
