Last year, all the September birthday celebrants of the Marketing Department at The Coca-Cola Export Corporation treated the group to a sumptuous Filipino breakfast. Each one of us brought something from our home province. Since it was a huge hit, people kinda expected we’ll do it again this year. Of course, we are more than happy to oblige, making this a September tradition. This year, more new recruits were added owing to the onslaught of new hires celebrating their birthdays in September. Here’s the invite I made digitally.


And these are the mouth-watering dishes we enjoyed for breakfast:

Sept 1 – Kristen: Put from Nueva Ecija
Sept 12 – Jenny: Tocino and Sisig from Pampanga
Sept 13 – Jaideep: Starbucks Coffee and Bizu Mango Cheesecake (he’s from India and he’s new so he’s exempted from the home province treat – but we’ll expect an Indian treat next year!)
Sept 16 – Sharon: Hopia from the province of Ongpin (the best I’ve tasted!)
Sept 18 – Alby: Boneless Tinapang Bangus from Salinas, Cavite with matching scrambled eggs (I also brought chicken longganisa for Jaideep who doesn’t eat pork or fish)
Sept 19 – Karen: Longganisa from Tuguegarao
Sept 22 – Aileen: Danggit from Cebu, as well as salted egg and tomatoes

Mae brought the garlic fried rice. She’s not a September celebrant and she’s also not from Marketing. She’s not even in the country at that time but her thoughtfulness was very much appreciated. Thanks Mae!!!
