  1. I’m half Filipino and the malunggay pandesal that my mom used to make for me and my siblings are really good. I can’t find them here in the U.S. and I really miss eating my childhood food. My mom is currently living in a different state, so maybe when I go visit her, I could taste the malunggay pandesal again.
