Nantes Kids present: Mother’s Day Special – Doña Edition

Doña Pamela

Ever since my cousin Abby started her love affair with cooking, we’ve come up with specialized themes for special days in our family. For this year’s Mothers’ Day, we decided for a Filipino themed dinner set at our house (since most of our things belong in that category). We worked with what we have and we’re all so pleased with the results! It’s because the cousins come from different backgrounds and expertise.

On the food: Ate Kat and Abby are in the food catering business. They manage events and even supply pastries and/ or drinks during debuts and weddings. Angel is also in the food/ service business and will soon head a Jollibee franchise owned by her family. Punong abala silang tatlo♥ We’re so blessed we have them to spearhead this event.

On the setting and decoration: We all had a hand in the decision but I managed the place with the help of everyone 🙂 My brother Enchong is also an architect (I’m claiming it!), we have Derrick (also studying architecture) and Rafael who is so good at composition.

Technical and muscle support: Derwin the driver and boss of the servers (haha), Domnic for the music++

All-around jack of all trades: Joan, Janelle and EG. Entertained the mommies, keeping a calm cool face in the front line.


The menu: Pomelo salad with citrus dressing Mustasa with bbq’d pork strips with veggies served with sesame dressing Tinola with pandan in buco shell served with rice Calamansi sorbet (as usual! :)) Kaldereta with taba ng talangka rice Langka Turon with ice cream Hot chocolate / coffee / tea

while waiting for their food, we arranged a “hilot” footspa for all the mothers.

Umayos kayo! haha
Happy faces, happy kids.
EG and Joan
Si Pamela ang unang anak na babae ni lola
Na nakapagtapos ng arkitektura
Sa magkakapatid, siya’y unang nag-asawa
At nagbunga ng dalawa
Si Pamela na kulot ‘pag galit
Si Pamela na unat ‘pag mabait
Si Joaquin, kanyang nabighani
Sa kanyang napakagandang ngiti
Si Pamela’y laging nagmamadali
“Amador family, uwi na!” ang kanyang sinasabi
Bagamat siya’y uwing-uwi
Sa mga take-out hindi siya magpapahuli
Mga proyekto niya’y sing ganda ng kanyang kalooban
Hindi mo siya makikitang umuurong sa anumang laban
Salamat sa’yo inay sa pagpapakita ng kagandahan
Ng building construction para sa aming kinabukasan

We all got it from our mama 😉
