Boodle Fight!

Last year our family celebrated the holidays in California with my aunts, so this year it was their turn to come to us. They arrived around mid-December, but we didn’t see each other until the 23rd because of their busy schedules. To give them a proper Filipino welcome, we took them out for lunch at Isdaan for a fun boodle-fight experience 🙂

For those who aren’t familiar with the term, here’s what Urban Dictionary has to say about it:

Boodle fight is a military style of eating where long tables are prepared and food are on top of the banana leaves. Viands and rice ready to eat using your bare hands, jugs of water are prepared on the side to wash hands before the “eating combat”. With the signal to start the boodle fight, everyone aims for his/her position

It didn’t turn out to be as agressive as the definition suggested, but it was definitely a fun way to dine with friends and family. (I wouldn’t suggest doing it with people you barely know though, since it might lead to a few awkward situations…)

Anyway, here are some pictures we took that day:

Eating all that food made us sleepy,and Raffy ended up falling asleep on the table:

This is what happens when you let your guard down while Ezra’s around…

To keep ourselves awake, we went around and took pictures with the Buddhas and elephants they had there
