New York City used to be "The City that Never Sleeps". As a child, I would never have guessed that the subway would be closed for overnight cleaning. We, New Yorkers, used to take such privileges for granted. I remember my first trip to LA, and most restaurants closed by 11:00 PM. It was one of the reasons I chose not to relocate there. I need my 2:00 AM pizza delivery.
But COVID shut everything down. The world changed.
And with it we all realized some hard things. Number one: most of us suck at cooking.
And because of this void, new supply and demand was created, and home-cooked meals became delivery meals. The search for the best ube and cheese pan de sal became a new craze. Small businesses, like Ai's Kitchen, Mrs. Bernabe, Chef Cecile Lai, and Boondat Sarap, thrived through word-of-mouth and social media.
Ai Aromin, founder of Ai’s Kitchen, recalls how offices closed and how difficult it became to pay bills. “I needed income. I decided to pursue my passion and started to cook various dishes for friends and family. What has kept me motivated is discovering new recipes…along with meeting new people every day.” Ai’s specialty and best seller is her kare-kare (oxtail in a peanut-based sauce).
Even closer to home, some took it upon themselves to learn how to provide solid meals for their families.
For those still struggling with cooking, JCI Philippine-New York, in collaboration with Krizia Eats, is producing short video tutorials on how to cook some favorite meals. The first featured Christef Cook's Made from Scratch Pasta. Upcoming episodes include Elaine Schroeder's lumpiang shanghai, as well as surprise delicacies from Ai Aromin and Cecile Lai. These videos are available on the JCI Philippine-New York Facebook page, YouTube channel, and Instagram accounts.
Is the pandemic really almost over? At least we'll be able to cook through the next one.

Jaycees and Friends,
The Houston International Jaycees were here for us last year when NYC was hit very badly with COVID-19 and there was a lack of face masks in hospitals. They sent 500 KN95 masks to our healthcare workers here in New York which were distributed by our chapter and JCI New Jersey. It’s time to give back!
We’re raising funds to support Houston International Jaycees to provide relief to the greater Houston area affected by Winter Storm.
It’s been said that the storm “may be the costliest winter weather event in the state’s history.” A lot have suffered income loss and property damage both in and out of their homes, and flooding and other water damage caused by frozen and broken pipes.
A little help from each of us will have a great impact to their recovery. We have a goal to reach $300 by March 13, which we’ve already sent them last night in advance. They needed the help weeks ago. Any money raised over $300 by March 13, 2021 will be forwarded to them as well. Help us support each other.
You can donate via PayPal or Venmo: @philnyjaycees.

It’s the start of February and we’d like to kick it off by doing something fun. February is the month of love and we love having fun! So, here’s what we’ve done.
We planted Easter Eggs on our new website!
Yes, right here on this site we’ve planted Easter Eggs. “What is an Easter Egg on a website?” some of you may ask. Well, here’s an answer we found from our friend named “Google”.
“Unlike the holiday treat, website Easter Eggs are jokes, features, games or messages hidden by programmers or developers at the back end of websites.”
There are 2 Easter Eggs on this post to get you started. Comment below if you found it, but don't spoil it for everyone else (let's see how that goes).
This is our way of introducing the new site and to get yourselves familiarized with it. Going forward, we plan to post anything and everything to do with our chapter from events, updates, projects, recognitions, sponsors and all the way to other Easter Egg announcements (if we have one on February, it only makes sense to have one in Easter, right?!). Also, our site is now integrated with all our social media accounts.
How it works.
1. Check to find weird things that aren’t supposed to be on the website by clicking around! Hint, those are Easter Eggs. If for some reason you don’t know where the website is, you most likely have no chance of winning. Just kidding, but goodluck!
2. Take a screenshot of your Easter Eggs and write short description of what it was. 1 sentence should be good enough. Example, if you clicked on the “News” tab and it took you to cnn.com, then that is an Easter Egg. Take a screenshot of that tab and mention that “it took me to cnn.com.” Another example is if you see a picture that’s obviously edited. Simply take a screenshot of that and indicate why you think it’s an Easter Egg.
3. Compile your responses in a word document or Google doc so it’s easy to see your screenshots and short descriptions.
4. Send your document to [email protected] when you’re done.
The winner will be chosen based on time and accuracy so, while you want to catch as many as you can, you also want to be the quickest. We'll give this competition two weeks to run before announcing the winner. That means you got till February 16, 2021. Yes, there is a prize! This starts now! Enjoy!
