Fasting From Filipino Food

25 Feb

Every Thursday morning our team share breakfast around 9 AM. Since 90% of the team is Indian we are always eating some form of Paratha or share some Biryani.
During the Team breakfast last Thursday morning, my Catholic boss told the team, “Hi I’m not eating today. I’m fasting but I want to sit here and see you guys… Orlee! Why are you eating!? It’s Lent. Shouldn’t you be fasting?”
I decided to abstain this lent and not fast but I don’t want to explain all of this to the whole table so I just answered, “I’m fasting from Filipino food so Indian food is exempted.”
Everybody laughed. Carol then answered, “Then you should have bring some Filipino food so that I could fast from Indian food.”
