Busy time here.
Joy is still doing deliveries for special Christmas rice packages. Some of the specialty rices we sell were destroyed in the typhoon, so we had to import them from other organic farmers and pack them before delivery.
Did you know that there is black rice and red rice? The black rice is actually purplish and glutinous and often used for sweets. An example of a common dish is found here.
The red rice is popular for Chinese New year. We often mix a little to our regular rice to give it a nutty flavor...
And then we have the various types of ordinary organically grown brown rice. Yum...Basmati.
Yesterday afternoon was the Christmas party for staff...low key this year because we and everyone else is short of money: just pancit and cake, and a small Christmas bonus.
