When love was blind - Summary

Eunice is a girl who is having a relationship with Alquin – a certified playboy, but still she opted to stick with him no matter what.  Eunice thought her edge over the other girls is that she and Alquin are in the same religion and knowing how conservative their religion is he will be more serious with their relationship.  One by one, Alquin discontinued his relationship with other girls and it made her more secured.  Until one day, before the semester ends, Alquin called and tells Eunice she needs to talk to someone.  That someone is Edna – Alquin’s long time childhood sweetheart whom he is seriously having a relationship and like the other girls Eunice was being dumped too.  Having her pride and own self esteem in tacked, she lets him go without even bothering to fight for their love.  She felt defeated knowing that the girl is always with him.

In all of this, Eunice friend Alain watches by and comforts her.  To Alain she is deeply inlove with Alquin and time will heal her fragile heart’s wounds.  Alain is always there by her side every free time they have they share with each other’s company.  Everyone observes the dedication Alain have for Eunice but they both never bothered to notice.  Alain thought she is still nurturing her old flame for Alquin and Eunice thought he is interested with another girl, Belle.  Belle even asked Eunice tips on how she can get noticed by the elusive Alain and Eunice even bothered to push Belle to her bestfriend.  According to Belle, one time when Alain went to watch a movie with their friends with out Eunice, Belle over heared Alain and Jojo discussing something. It seems that Jojo is giving Alain a push to court Belle since they are seated beside each other at that time. Hearing this story, Eunice thought that she is doing her best pal Alain a favor and helped Belle get noticed.

However, Alain who gives in to Eunice and the rest of his friends demand to finally court the girl he loves, shocked and embarrassed Eunice.  Alain decided to admit his feelings not for Belle but for Eunice.  Eunice felt a lump in her throat and had to swallow hard before the very thought sinks in.  However, Eunice cannot hide her happiness that it is she - her best friend really wants.  After all Alain is not just being elusive he is one of the best catch in their group.   With a baritone voice that can sweep away any girl, a good physic thanks to their regular swimming activity and a very intelligent mind that even she admits is beyond her own.

But how about Belle?  Although Eunice cannot just give up on Alain now that he confessed his feelings she does not want to get Belle hurt, hence she is willing to sacrifice their love altogether.  Not knowing what to do Eunice asked Jojo for advise.  It was at that time that she found out that Alain and Jojo were not discussing Belle all along.  Instead, at the time Belle was eavesdropping, they were talking about Alain's feelings towards Eunice.  Jojo observes Eunice and Alain daily -  holding hands everytime they are together, gazing each other as if they are the only person in the world,  sharing and putting food in each other’s plates; but still tells everyone they are the best of pal.  This makes Jojo play cupid and urges Alain to open his blinded eyes to reality.

Now Eunice has no choice but to admit to Belle her mistakes and the misunderstandings.  Although Belle got hurt and felt deceived finding out about Eunice and Alain, she decided to just leave them be and be happy for them.  By that time Eunice and Alain eventually decided to give in to their true feelings and show their love for each other.

Where is Eraño Manalo Avenue?

In honor of the late Iglesia Ni Cristo (INC) head, an ordinance upon approval of the Quezon City government last October 18, 2010 was issued renaming Central Avenue to Eraño G. Manalo Avenue.

The ordinance changing the street’s name to honor the late INC leader is in recognition of “his greatness and nobility” in leading the powerful religious group, Quezon City Council said.

In approving ordinance number SP-1961, S-2009, Quezon City Council Majority Floor Leader Ariel Inton said it is only proper to bestow honor to the late Iglesia ni Cristo Executive Minister for playing a significant role in the development of Christianity and for propagating the teaching of universal love.

Inton said Brother Eraño Manalo was an indispensable partner in community development, promoting human relations and strengthening the moral fiber of the society.

“It is only befitting to use his name on a street where motorists and pedestrians from all over Metro Manila and from different parts of the country can remember him for his good deeds,’’ Inton said.

The Iglesia ni Cristo central office complex, a large secured complex is a landmark situated in Eraño G. Manalo Avenue, New Era, Quezon City, Philippines and is the seat of the INC's Central Administration. In addition to the six-story central office building there are six other major edifices and several buildings. The major buildings include the 7,000-seat Central Temple, the multi-purpose Tabernacle Hall, the 30,000-seat central pavilion, the College of Evangelical Ministry, and the New Era General Hospital. In 1968, Eraño Manalo moved the central office from the chapel on Riverside Street, San Juan, Metro Manila to its present location. The INC acquired several hectares of land and in the next forty years transformed the area to what it is today.

My Mom's Famous Cooking

It is hard to eat out when your mom is well known for her cooking and you were brought up tasting good food.

For starters, I remember feasting on saucy dishes during lunch on weekends - Kare Kare, Mechado, Kaldereta, Afritada, Menudo, Adobo, etc. - with so much gusto.

Fact is, the dish is yummier if it is reheated several times already. If we have fried fish on the table, then there must be vegetables too - Chop Suey; Pinakbet; Guinataang Laing, Langka or Sitaw at Kalabasa; Guinisang Sayote, Repolyo or Baguio Beans, ahhhh no wonder I got so fat... :)

During festive seasons, the usual entrée would include Morcon, Paella, Rellenong Bangus (Stuffed Milked Fish), Embutido, Barbeque, Grilled Pusit, Kare Kare (the family favorite), Sisig, Crispy Pata, Lechon Kawali (Macao), Sweet and Sour or Steamed Lapu Lapu. Although most of the time we don't have to plan the menu... we just have to go with the flow and prepare extra servings of what was ordered by friends and neighbours for their own party.

Ofcourse, her pansit (noodles) are superb that some times I'll skip my co-employees treat of Pansit Bihon, Canton, Sotanghon, Lomi, Palabok, Malabon or Luglog since it is always in the table for snack at home. Would you believe my co-employees would compare her Lasagna with those served in Italian Resto? I never tasted Spaghetti from fast food chains since my family recipe surpass them all... I want mine with boiled eggs aside from the cheese in it and I never forget the taste of my great grand aunt's which includes chicken on red sauce aside from the meat balls.

Then, there is her famous desserts like Ube Yam, Leche Flan, Brownies, Bibingka, Maja Blanca, Puto and the likes. Anyone who knows her had surely enjoyed a taste of her cooking prowess. All the foods she serves are guaranteed fresh from the oven and reasonably priced. So if you are having an occasion or just want to eat for no reason try our home cook dishes.
