TIPS: How to Place Order from Elars Lechon in Quezon Avenue

One week ago, Carmina had pointed to Mom Violy there is a place to order her lechon. Mom Violy said, let's go there one day. Carmina was able to bring Mom Violy to  Elars Lechon . The branch we went too was in Quezon Avenue which is close by. First step is to enter in their office facility to place your order.  The person inside will ask what you would like to order. Here is their price list: What they offer for Christmas in case you're interested in it. It is very easy to place your order those who are just walking in out of curiosity. Second Step: Go outside and hand in your order at the counter where you can see the lechon in front of you being chopped up on based on the weight you've made. The lechon will be placed in a box along with the lechon sauce inside an eco-bag. Mom Violy is very happy that she was able to buy her favorite Elars Lechon. NOTE: Carmina is not selling or advertising for lechon sold at Elars Lechon. Subscribe & follow @ Carmina Lifestyle  a plac

Birthday for Love Ones

Although you are in heaven we still celebrate your birthday because we wish you are here on this special day. Yesterday it was my Lola’s birthday she would have been one hundred plus years old. We would always cook pancit to feed everyone in the house. To us even if she is not with us in our spirit and memories remain with us. There are some people who celebrate their love ones when they have already left us. We set a prayer gather with family and friends. We light up a candle to enlighten their spirits to wish them a happy birthday. We visit their grave site and bring food and flowers to have a picnic and talk to them with our family and friends. This way even if they are not next to us we still get to spend time with each other. This is how we show how much we love and gratitude our loves ones mean to us.
