The caldereta looks good! One of my favorite as well. :) And I enjoyed watching Naomi's fan dance. I wonder if she used to be a Filipino folk dancer? She's really good. Watching her traveled me back in time on our Filipino Week school programs when we do Filipino games and folk dances.) I love watching the folk dances. ^-^' And school competitions are much thrilling to watch :) Rated, useful and awesome!
