As Filipinos, we give high reverence to eating and mealtimes. It’s the time of the day to catch up, exchange stories, and get together. A festive Christmas song that’s constantly stuck in my head goes like this: “Tayo na giliw magsalo na tayo. Mayron na tayong tinapay at keso. Di ba Noche Buena sa gabing ito, at bukas ay araw ng Pasko.” Funnily enough, we’ll always find it relatable no matter what the season is. Eating at home will always be the best dining experience. We still prefer home-cooked meals over fancy or fast food take-outs.
Now that we’ve learned to celebrate the little things in life, we were able to see the importance of surrounding ourselves with what makes us happy. We learned new stuff and developed hobbies that we never really cared for that much before the pandemic. There are people who were drawn to home upgrades and renovation, were converted into plantitos and plantitas, and even transformed into platitas! So, if you still need a little push to ditch your old dinnerware, we’ve got you covered with a list of shops where you can buy pretty plates, bowls, and utensils online!
