I grew up with my "Tatay" a true blue Kapampangan from San Fernando Pampanga and having a good food is a must in our table. Mind you, pintasero yan if di masarap :P RIP Tatay, D'yan ka lang :) Plus, living in a community surrounded by Kapampangan's, (Bo. Sta Maria and Bo. Kapampangan in Paco) the blood and culture? I think already deep within me.
Now I'm missing Pampanga. Di na kami nakabalik since Tatay migrated to heaven. Miss ko na ang mga luto nya and pasyalan dun. So whenever there are events to cover in that city. I'm all in!
