In her latest vlog, Heart Evangelista invited her dad, Reynaldo Ongpauco, and sisters, Camille and Mich, to cook their dad’s top-secret bagoong recipe. It’s a labor of love—their dad would continuously stir the bagoong for two to three hours and end up smelling like the fermented food for days!
Their dad, who’s known for the family’s Barrio Fiesta chain of restaurants, said, “Mga isang linggo ka lang namang amoy bagoong, [pati] ang asawa mo.” LOL, no wonder Heart tried to protect her hair from the smell with a hair cap!
While cooking the bagoong, the three sisters reminisced about their childhood. They recalled that their dad was quite strict with them, but now that they’re older and have families of their own, they appreciate and understand the way they were raised.

It’s heartwarming to see Heart with her dad and sisters especially since Heart revealed that their dad “graduated” from radiation therapy in May after months of sessions. Heart previously posted on Instagram, “He's now in such a better place and I couldn't be more grateful.”
This isn’t the first time that Heart’s family appeared on her vlog. In June, Heart cooked pata tim with Mich and their dad, and last year, Camille and Mich joined Heart in Japan.
