Gwakong’s Vegetarian Birthday Lunch


If my Gwakong were still alive, he’d be 96 years old today. And we’d be having an all-out vegetable-galore celebration at The Original Savory Escolta, with everything (and everyone) red and festive, very similar to this.

Nowadays we celebrate his birthdays at home with simple but delicious vegetarian lunches prepared by my Auntie Lily.
