Full Circle: My Mom and Me – Mitzi Mansala

In this series, we invited some of our local moms to have photos taken with their moms, and talk to us about their relationship. As we get older, it’s not uncommon to find ourselves caring for our parents as well as our own family.

Full Circle: My Mom and Me - Mitzi Mansala

Local mom and Top Mom Blogger in 2013, Mitzi says she doesn’t see a family resemblance, but we think they share a beautiful, genuine smile.

When I asked her what she hears herself saying that sounds just like her mom, she told me: ‘”Ay Naku!” which in English means somewhere in between OH Man! Oh Geez! Oh NO! and Uh-Oh.’

I think Mitzi’s mom’s advice about cooking is great: “‘Your favourite Filipino dishes are easier than they look. Tenderize, then cook with garlic, onion, and a tomato.’ Basically, make food and they’ll eat for a day, teach them how to make the food and they’ll eat for a lifetime!”
