    Welcome to Joni's New World! Here you will find my thoughts on anything I am currently obsessing over: mostly Literature, languages, and travel. View the cloud down there for a better representation of subjects.

    I've been blogging since 2005. My early posts were on Multiply but have since exported those to Blogger. See if you can find that. (Actually not that hard.)

    –kitchen successes:

    Pancit Bihon

    I find cooking pancit bihon so tedious so every time I make it (not often), I breathe a sigh of relief once it’s done.

    Nilagang Baboy (literally, “Boiled Pork”)

    This is an interesting take on nilagang baboy (literally, boiled pork). I put sweet potato in addition to potatoes and pechay (bokchoy). It added sweetness and a bit of thickness to the broth. Got the seal of approval from hubby and baby.

    –wedding cruise

Pictures of our trip (as well as a brief kwento about what went down) are on FB and can be viewed if we’re FB friends. Otherwise, here’s half of the huge ship.
