We were just in time for the blessing of the palms at the church grounds. It’s a good thing we were early since the church was full.
Palm Sunday always has that festive atmosphere, it is a celebration of Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem. The gospel is quite long but the priest delivered an inspiring and meaningful homily.
Right after the mass, we went to buy sweet potatoes on the roadside, they were selling it at P30 a kilo. Then I saw an old lady selling suman sa latik. I’ve craved for something sweet the past few days but I was too lazy to go out because of the heat and it’s been a while since we bought kakanin. Josef laughed when I said, “hmm…this is so yummy”.
All that mouth-watering goodness. It’s made of sticky rice wrapped in banana leaves and steamed. The toppings are just coconut creme with a little sugar and freshly grated coconut for that nutty flavor.
May you have a meaningful Palm Sunday celebration.
