Everyone knows that food is always one of the best ways to bond among Pinoys.
At the Pepsi Tambahay Party held last August 24, 2022, this was exactly what celebrities Mimiyuuuh, P-pop boy band SB19, Jayda Avanzado, and Ricci Rivero did, together with consumers from all over Metro Manila who rallied to celebrate their unstoppable human spirits and authentic selves.
Speaking of authentic selves, the members of Pepsi Fam shed light on some of their unique or quirky habits while bonding together over food.
For Jayda, it was her love for eggs. She confessed, "Mahilig talaga ako sa egg. I must have that especially with pancit canton, or anything.
"Pag medyo feeling ko kulang yung ulam ko laging meron akong sunny-side up egg na kasama."
The 24-year-old professional basketball player, Ricci Rivero, shared his secret to having the energy to eat plenty after a grueling game.
He shared, "For me, madalas kasi akong kumain ng sabaw, e. Di ba pag nagsa-sabaw tayo madami yung kanin? So, every after nung game ko, mas gusto ko mas marami nakakain.
"So, madalas akong kumakain sa bowls, 'tapos halos mas marami na yung sabaw ko.
"For example, sinigang ganyan, mas marami na halos yung sabaw kesa sa kanin. Kaya mas nakakarami akong nakakain. Na-e-enjoy ko talaga siya."
Internet sensation Mimiyuuuh made people laugh as she revealed her food quirk, which is almost like a lifehack to skipping a particular household chore.
"Alam niyo po, bata pa lang po ako, pag may pancit canton po, pag ubos na po yung pancit canton, talagang dinidilaan ko po ang plato, as in like simot na simot po," the vlogger quipped while demonstrating.
"Hindi niyo na po kailangan hugasan ang plato kasi dila ko pa lang po, ang linis-linis na."
Meanwhile, the SB19 members also related what they believe to be their uncanny eating habits.
The group's eldest member Josh shared, "Sa akin siguro, minsan yung ketchup tsaka kanin parang ano lang pinaghahalo ko lang, 'tapos kakainin ko.
"At isa pa siguro, parang halos araw-araw kailangan may sili yung pagkain. So dalawang buong sili, chop-chopin ko 'tapos ilalagay ko sa pagkain ko."
On the other hand, the group's designated visual member Justin, isn't sure if his quirk is unique enough.
"Ako, not sure kung very unique siya, pero siguro ito na yung pinaka-unique for me. Yung kunwari yung sinigang, yung karne noon, sinasawsaw ko sa bagoong. 'Tapos, yung mangga naman, minsan sinasawsaw ko sa patis," he said.
SB19's main dancer Ken shortly answered, "Di ko alam kung unique din siya pero siguro chocolate drink at kanin."
For main rapper Pablo, "Mahilig kasi ako sa suka, so lahat ng food—hotdogs, egg— may suka lagi. Minsan nilalagyan ng ketchup, so yun."
Finally, the band's main vocalist Stell said, "Ako po wala naman po akong anything na unique way sa pag kain. Pero paborito ko po talaga, pag kumakain nagkakamay."
He added in jest, "Siguro po para maging unique next time, try ko po mag-paa."
Pepsi Fam indulged in a day-long experience of great food, fun games and surprises, and some foot-tapping music and performances by artists Zack Tabudlo, KAIA, Dasuri Choi among others, to provide unlimited support for small, local community eateries as they recover from their business struggles.
