Pizza with Chicharon

By Juvy S. Iliwiliw

It's Valentine's day once again. I can't help but recall the past Valentine where it was just me and my girl friend Maricel sharing our thoughts while eating inside her rented apartment.

We have searched high and low that time looking for available seats in a restaurant but too bad, we had not found one. It was just me and her who were still single in our office, so we preferred to celebrate the Valentines' day just the two of us. Maybe there were really plenty of reasons why people celebrates Valentines' day because we can't find two empty chairs for almost all of the restaurants that time. When we became too tired of our soul-searching, we finally decided to just buy ingredients of the recipes that you can find here. It was never too bad for us because we learned lessons about restaurant reservations especially during special holidays and occasions and most of all we learned that we enjoy both the passion for cooking!

And in case you would wonder what makes that day worth recalling is because she shared with me something about her most intimate thoughts of being single. Perhaps she was just a little too carried away of the occasion or maybe she just wanted to express it to her best friend. She's lucky to have me around to do the listening. I just listened most of the time to her stories while eating in between words the pizza and sipping the drink we have prepared.

Some of her stories are too vague for me to recall now but one thing I can't forget about was when she told me of her past heartaches with her pathetic boyfriend and how she struggled the pressure of being thirty-nine and still single. She really can't help but wonder who's really for her and if she will ever be married to the man of her dreams. She is still not married until now but she never loses the hope of being one with her man. I may have just listened to her but at the end of it all, I just simply shared with her the lines from a beautiful song: "God is to wise to be mistaken. God is too good to be unkind. So if you don't understand. If you can't see His plan. If you can't see His hand, trust His heart."

I don't know how I made her feel that night but her unfading smiles just manifest two things: first, she loves herself and she loves the PIZZA with CHICHARON and FOUR SEASONS SHAKE!
