LOOK: Sharon Cuneta cooks again ‘for the first time in ages’
It’s no surprise that the only people who can bring Megastar Sharon Cuneta back in the kitchen are her kids. Cuneta shared yesterday, July 5, that she cooked again after so long when her kids craved for her version of “bulgogi,” a Korean dish of marinated slices of beef or pork stir-fried in a pan.
“Only my children could get me back in the kitchen, cooking again for the first time in ages! It was my first time to cook in THIS kitchen as well. Babies missed Mama’s version of Bulgogi – Korean BBQ,” shared Cuneta.
She wrote that the moment she started to cook the beef, her younger daughters Miel and Frankie instantly reminiscenced about their childhood.
“Mielly and Kakie said, ‘Mama! Reminds me of my childhood! Wack-Wack’” wrote Cuneta. “Miguel ate almost nothing but Bulgogi in Seoul and he had no memory of my version. Tonight, he ate so much of it and three servings of rice! Hahaha! My heart is full.”
One of Cuneta’s pictures showed her wearing a baggy shirt and an apron; she was barefaced, wearing only her prescription glasses, and had her hair in a bun. Other pictures showed daughters Frankie and Miel, as well as little Miguel, eating their bulgogi with good old white rice and kimchi.
Cuneta, too, knew well the feeling of having to taste nothing, or only a little, of what she cooked. For her, she’s happy enough just watching her children eat and love what she makes.
“I only have to watch my children enjoying what Mama cooks for them,” Cuneta said sweetly.
Meanwhile, Cuneta revealed that husband Senator Kiko Pangilinan was not around to enjoy the food with them as he was stuck in traffic. “Sorry Dada Kikyoo. Traffic pa rin. Lots of it waiting for you!”
