We have stopped inviting over guests to our house for lunch/dinner during this day, ever-since ages ago. And the event is somewhat boring and as what I said earlier, routinary.
In fairness also, when I was younger I enjoyed this celebration. I can see that a lot of the younger ones would enjoy this event. There are a lot of programmes, pre-day activities as well as on the day activities that the younger ones would surely appreciate.
One thing I do look forward to though is my mom's kare-kare, and of course with the bagoong and nothing else.
