My girlfriend invited me to their family Christmas party last December. It was my first time meeting her family so I was really nervous. I wanted to make a good first impression. I initiated on bringing a big plate of pancit to share with everyone. I arrived late, though, since the party was in Makati and I live in Quezon City.
So when I arrived, I immediately placed the plate of pancit on the kitchen bar so everyone could try it. The party went well, except that the next day my girlfriend informed me that a few of her relatives had an upset stomach. It seemed like the pancit I brought spoiled in the trunk of my car on my way to the party. So much for effort!
