Lumpia Over Love

I’ve always loved the idea of Valentine’s Day. Something about the sweet gestures from friends and family, and even sweeter candy sale that comes the day after has always given me something to look forward to. This year, the Philippine Student Association (PSA) gave me an even better reason to get pumped for Valentine’s. Something far more exciting than flowers or poetry or any other grand expression of love: Food.

And not just any food. Egg rolls! PSA’S Lumpia Over Love is an annual event in which all interested students can come to learn to make the Filipino style egg roll popularly known as the lumpia. It’s a fun way to meet new people, get your karaoke on, and I personally believe is one of the best weapons you can use to combat the occasional homesickness. As wonderful as serenades and romantic dinners sound, stuffing your face with egg rolls is not a bad way to spend your day either.
