Hello, steemit friends of the World Of Xpilar community. I'm glad I've seen this contest announcement because I like a free-style story so I didn’t fail to submit my entry. 
I'm really into this story, and I'd love to share it with you all. It’s about my younger sister who now lives in America with her family. 

**Months before...**
I am not sure if this is common to others, but every time she calls, the first thing that goes out of her mouth is her deserted Filipino foods. You know, funny because this is where our topic goes around which can sometimes end in disagreement. 
She always sends us pictures of delicious foods I haven't even eaten yet, then suddenly she just calls because she misses the kind of Filipino food that when serve, our eyes will roll to search for something else. Of course, this food is delicious as long as it's not always served though.

**Months later...**

She sent pictures of "malunggay" planted in a pot. This is my sister's innovation though😆. Everything is done just to satisfy her cravings for delicious soup made of fresh "malunggay" leaves.

To say, most of us Filipinos, if not all, are soup lovers. In my case, even if there is no other dish left as long as there is still soup or just mere soup... that meal is enough.

So we think that she has only worked hard and planted "malunggay" for soup. To my surprise, there is still a lot, like spinach and crops. She did make a garden at the back of their house.

There, what I didn't know, her, missing those foods was that serious. And soon her picture updates were changed too. She now sends pictures no longer more about American delicious food, instead, these are plants that she will soon harvest and cook the way we native Pinoy does.

And so the time came when she was able to harvest the fruit of her cravings. While very excited preparing that Filipino dish,

This baby girl finds ways to look near to what her mother was doing. She then steps on a bench for her to look at what her mom did.. full of surprise as this was her first time to see that kind of food, she then asked, " Mom what is that? Are you sure it is edible? Where did you know that these leaves are safe to eat?"

Boom! The mother was stunned by her daughter's sudden question.😅

And here ends our story ... I hope you enjoyed it.

Greetings friend @fabio2614

Interesting story where a young migrant girl decides to grow the plants to be able to prepare usual food from her homeland.

Thank you for your entry to the contest.
