What’s in Your Lunchbox: Chicken Tocino

Today, my kids, hub and I are having chicken tocino for lunch. It’s not so obvious that this is a favorite packed lunch of the family. 😀 Lately though, my family has been having more fruits and veggies. So I threw in some fresh pineapples into my lunch.

While on a client visit in Tagaytay, Hub bought fresh whole pineapples there for only Php25 apiece (about USD 0.50!). Tagaytay pineapples are sweet and fragrant. Of course, they are supposed to bring good luck for the Chinese New Year.

  1. I miss Tagaytay pineapples!  Pero mahal na yan at 25 ha.  When we were still in Laguna Bel Air, my husband buys pineapples from Tagaytay on his way home from work (he was still with Intel Cavite).  8 pesos lang ang isang pineapple noon, the same with buko. Ngayon pati buko mahal na rin.

  2. Hello Imom,The chicken tocino looks yummy!  You know the best pineapple I have ever tasted is from Tagaytay.  It was very sweet and didn’t have any “bite.”  Kakamiss talaga ng Tagaytay. 

    Hello There,
    I came across you website while researching for a BBC documentary on Parenting, Family Values and teenager attitudes across the world.
    My name is Donnovan Harris and I am a casting producer for a television production company called Twenty Twenty television here in the UK, and we are working on this documentary series and I was hoping you can help me find a ‘role model’ Filipino family to feature in the series.
    The premise of the documentary is simple – We send two British teenagers to spend a week with a Filipino family to experience what family life is like and how it compares to family life back in the uk.
    I am hoping you may be able to pass on information about the series to your network of teenagers and get them exited about this very positive and aspirational series.
    Can you send me a contact number I can call you on to discuss further. 
    Many Thanks
    Donnovan Harris
