Weekend: Edible Gumamela

My mom prepared this salad, I thought it was so girlaloo with all the flowers. then she told us it is edible. Really?!  It is somewhat slimy and taste like lettuce. I googled it and turns out  Hibiscus or Gumamela appears to have anti-inflammatory properties and rich in antioxidants. :)

First time to try this cassava cake from Lety's Buko Pie Store. It is very filling because it is very thick and not very soft, I like that it is also not overly sweet :)

Weekend with the family, simple celebration for tita's bday.
I missed eating pancit with a lot of squid balls and my fave 'kaong' in buko salad ;p

Happy birthday!
