We had a few friends over to dinner October 27, 2007. They call it "Fiesta". Each year on the same date our section of town Balugo celebrates "Fiesta". Everybody in our area has as many friends as they can feed over for Fun, Food and Beverage. People prepare for days for the event. Many pigs were slaughtered and much time spent fixing food. The center piece of the table is always a Lechon Pig.
We had two of them. One outside and this one on the table inside. The one inside didn't last long. (There's probably only about 25 minutes between these two shots).
The one outside wasn't uncovered for about an hour so it lasted about 1 hour and 5 minutes longer than the one inside.
It's in the middle of this crowd with a whole bunch of forks sticking in it.
Many Slaves were employed to prepare the meal (Below)
As you can see above we fed the slaves well. Ok they are really my niece and several of our cousins.
These two are responsible for most of the work that installed the smiles on the faces of all the people in the rest of the pictures (below). My Mother In-Law "Sylvia" managed to hide from the camera or she would be in the picture above with my Wife Margie and Sister In-Law Virgie. They all put their best effort into a really great party. The ladies pictured above didn't even eat until after 11:00PM when everyone went home and then not much. All I did was open soft drinks and beers for my friends.
A quick note.
Three days later the ladies were still washing knifes, forks, spoons and plates and putting them away for next time. We'll be back living in Northern California next year so it looks like this is our last Fiesta for a while.
