I know I have shared already with you from my previous posts that Filipinos love adobo. It is the commonly found viand of the rich and poor family here. When adobo is present in a meal, it is a feast already in the household. The rich flavor of adobo has reached far and wide and many other people try cooking them when they get to their own homes.

This juicy pork tenderloin recipe is flavorful on its own, but if you'd like gravvy to go with it, make one by adding some white wine or chicken stock to loosen pan drippings. Let mixture reduce or thicken with a mixture of flour and water. Then season with salt and pepper to taste.

Sungka was a part of my childhood and specifically, of our family getaways to places in the Philippines. As I grew older, the gameboard of my youth got buried deeper and deeper in our storage room and I lost touch with it. Then a few years back, I received an invitation to a friend's wedding in Baguio. Number one on my list of things to buy was a sungka. Of course, my intention was to play sungka as I did when I was a little girl. But as I was staring at the empty sky one day, an idea came to mind - why not use it to serve food? So I hosted a get-together at home and my friends had so much fun with the presentation!
