Time flies so fast when you’re enjoying and we did not notice that our summer vacation in Norway was about to end. Seven weeks seems not enough, I stayed for 3 months when I was still single. I did not mind my one month leave in school, feeling ko madali lang habulin yung lesson. But now that I’m a mom, I don’t want my son to miss school, sayang ang tuition so we have to go home 1 week before classes resume and of course, we miss our daddy.

And because we're going back to the Philippines, my aunt invited us again for dinner in their house. She has no work after 17th of May so she has time to prepare foods. Knowing my aunt, she always prepares a lot of foods kahit konti lang bisita. Hindi ka papayat if you stay in my aunt’s house. For a group of 7 persons, here are the foods.

My aunt used to plant different kinds of berries so she makes fruit jams and even juices like these. Now that she is busy with work, wala na siya time mag garden.

Of course, cakes and ice cream for dessert. She prepared a different kind of Pavlova, a mini version

Ang dami food di ba? My aunt also invited her Filipina neighbor + husband who is also a co-worker so napahaba-haba ang kainan and kwentuhan. This is one thing that I miss, get together with my family and relatives. Yung kumakain lang ako and hindi tagaluto or tagabake.  Check the food here, when we visited her during our first week in Norway.

If we still have time, mapapalakad kami sa Svartholberget para lang mabawasan ng calories but we went home straight since late na rin. We will go to Nursing Home the following day, our last day in helping my mom in her work.

  2. Your aunt outdid herself preparing all these for you. Looks like a fiesta. Such a beautiful way to cap off your vacation.
