Ninong’s has given me and my family so many opportunities. One of them being featured in different publications, blogs, and even on TV every once in a while.
Prior to officially opening at our new location, we invited some of the friends we’ve made in the media industry to come and eat some food! We wanted to showcase some of the new menu offerings we were going to have as well as let them see the new location for themselves.
Most recently, the Filipino Channel (aka TFC) showed a segment about us on their show Balitang America from the tasting. What an honor! It was perfect timing too, we were just about to announce that we were going to start serving our Chicken and Waffle that same week. They beat us to it!
Thank you to Steve and everyone at TFC for the feature!
You know I think about you always and miss you every day. There are days or moments where I remember something from my childhood, from my wedding, or something after you were diagnosed. Sometimes the memories are good, sometimes they are sad, and sometimes they’re wishes that you were around for the new memories we are experiencing. One of those was the segment that showed on ABC7 last night.
Mom, we were part of a segment on channel 7 called “Global Gourmet” and I talked about Ninong’s and what our shop has to offer. I channeled you and told Tina (link) all about you, the family, and our little shop. I think you would have been so excited to talk to her. She asked about you too. I think you would be proud about how we have changed. I hope you would be proud.
I can already imagine seeing you cry from happiness. You cry about everything (I get that from you!). Dad and I would always tease you for that. But look at that, now I’m doing it! When big things happen like this I always wish you were here. I guess my consolation prize is knowing that you’re proud no matter what.
Miss you Mommy.
Holy moly! If you saw my post on Instagram a few weeks back I was interviewed by Tina Malave of ABC7. She does a segment called Eye on LA and thanks to some supportive fans she chose to feature us! What the?! Someone pinch me, am I dreaming?!
It was so much fun and an absolute pleasure having Tina and her team come and get to know us a little better. To have the honor of sharing our creativity, our story, and our family with Southern California is extremely humbling.
We have come a long, long way from the first days of opening in 2008. With hard work, dedication, and God’s grace we have had so many wonderful opportunities.
So catch me and the rest of the Ninong’s family on ABC7’s Eye on LA Sunday, February 12, 2017 at 6:30 p.m. AHHH! 😀
P.S. Once I have a streaming video of the segment I’ll update this post.
