Fiesta Outside Manila (Part Two)

By BobbyRica | December 13, 2010


Stella is the daughter of the host. She was really busy giving plates, ushering guests and giving them what they need (although they had everything they need on the long table.) Being a non-Filipino made me an instant celebrity in the house but it doesn’t really feel good being the main attraction. My main attraction is Stella.


She was born and raised in the province. She is the only daughter of the host and she never had any boyfriend (I just had to consider that very important.) She has typical dreams of being a lawyer and getting married someday. She cooked almost half of the dishes. That was my chance to talk to her for a longer time.

I asked her what the dishes are called: caldereta, mechado, lechon (roasted suckling pig), morcon, and some more I cannot remember. I also got to ask her how each was cooked and guess what, she told me!

We went on the house balcony to get rid of the noisy people. She didn’t feel nervous while talking to me which made her all the more interesting. I skipped the dishes topic and asked more about her. It was a flimsy excuse to get her number or Facebook account but it was okay. I was really into her.


My entire stay in the Philippines became all the more colorful because of her. Never did I meet somebody so graceful, loving and reserved like her. She was my type.

I took another round for dessert if that would make me stay longer with her. I had leche flan, a sweet, milky delicacy that is said to be the star of the fiesta desserts. I liked it a lot. It’s sweet just like Stella.

I thank heavens for letting Stella give me her contact details otherwise I would just have to stalk her when I leave. I guess we’ll just have to keep in touch when I’m home and when I’m in my other trips. Will I ever meet another girl like her? I sure hope so! I ain’t BobbyRica for nuthin’!
