Filipinos love parties. Whether it is your niece’s fifth birthday party or a cousin’s baptism, we are quick to go wherever the party is. Let’s admit it. As much as we love parties, what we do really look forward to is the variety of food to be served. Humba, fried chicken, spaghetti, we are already making a list of what we want to eat way before the party starts. With our love for food, this is completely normal. The Philippines is called the melting pot of Southeast Asia. So each dish is intercepted with either a western or asian touch in it. With this complexity, we often lean into having more favorites than most do.
Our penchant for good food can be traced back to the past. Having great food on the table is the traditional way to party. This is why more often than not, we love unpretentious and indulgent dishes served at every occasion. In a time where all our family and loved ones can get together, having great food keeps the party going. While most of us are doing other things like talking with a friend, singing karaoke, participating in party games, in a while, we go back to the table and eat with gusto again. The onset of the pandemic may have limited the number of people that we can spend the day with but this does not mean we should not celebrate altogether. But with the number of cases rising by the day, how should we celebrate?
Davao City in particular is now under a Modified General Community Quarantine. Food establishments can now accommodate at least 50% of its capacity. With this in mind, it is quite easy to be complacent and act as if the virus no longer exists. But it still does and it is still claiming more lives as days go by. It has been repeatedly said that going outside our houses only increases our risks of contracting the virus. The mandate of the government is clear: stay at home and keep away from others. While each celebration is special, we can still celebrate it with the people we have at home.
Have a family dance party or challenge each other to learn something new while enjoying great food your way. Surely, it won’t feel much different than the other parties you’ve had. Only this time, you get to be with the people you are closest to and have your undivided attention to them. With house parties, you can enjoy your day without worrying that you and your family might catch the virus. These days, there are now various Davao food delivery that can accommodate your wants too.
