My Birthday Celebration: Filipino Food from Tasty Pinoy BBQ Skewers at iba pa

It's my birthday weekend. We went to my parent's place in Richmond, BC, to celebrate. Don't worry, we didn't invite people to the celebration - it's just seven people and two households. The first household is my husband and me, and the second household is my parents and three siblings.

I asked my mom to cook spaghetti for my birthday, and I thought of ordering from LA Chicken. Spaghetti and fried chicken is like a staple in Filipino birthday children's party. However, I became lazy and didn't want to line up and order from LA Chicken.

To go with my mom's spaghetti, I ordered lumpiang shanghai (Filipino-style spring rolls), pork BBQ in skewers, kwek-kwek, and kare-kare.

Beautiful Vegetables for the Kare-Kare
Veggies and Meat is separate from the creamy peanut sauce.
My youngest sister is picky with her Filipino-style pork BBQ, and she approved of this. I am happy! As she succinctly expressed, the meat is juicy and has the perfect meat-fat ratio.

Kwek-Kwek - my younger sister loved this Filipino snacks. She couldn't stop herself from eating.
A Filipino birthday party is incomplete without lumpia, and the one they serve is gigantic.
Birthdays are celebrated because it's a celebration of life. I am grateful for all the love and blessing I have received so far, and I can't wait to see what the future holds.
