Choco Chips Cookies, Vigan Longganisa, Soya Milk and Old Family Picture

Not necessarily in order but the title is related to one another nonetheless. The Vigan Longganisa is my own creation though I still have to perfect it because it gets crumbly when being cooked but it tastes great! The Soya Milk is daughter's pasalubong to her favorite (my Aunt!) ate L. The Choco Chips came from ate L's pantry. As for the Old Family Picture, she saw it in their old baul yesterday. She told me that she saw an old family picture of our clan taken around 1950's. I said that that must be the same picture that we saw hanging in the old ancestral house in the province though the family seem to have lost it. She said she'll give it to me. Yes, yes! The Aunts and Lola and Lelang (maybe.. Lelang was great-grandmother) wore traditional Filipino clothes while the Uncles, my Tatay and Lolo wore barong.. ooops! Except Tito O because he's wearing something different. So while daughter is munching cookies, ate L and I exchanged stories from long ago. It's really weird because I dreamt of ate L yesterday and in my dream, she is telling me that she is cleaning the other bedroom and that it is there. Of course I can't decipher my dream yesterday and it is only when I talked to her on the phone this evening and upon mentioning the old family picture that my dream suddenly became real. Oh!

RECIPE: TKG's Pan-Grilled Maya-Maya With Calamansi Butter Sauce

I chanced upon some fresh-looking Maya-Maya being sold near my daughter's school today so I bought some. I don't really have a dish in mind when I bought it. Maybe fried, sinigang ... And upon checking the fridge and pantry (no more olive oil), I decided to marinate the fish in calamansi to remove the fishy taste. I pan-grilled the fish being careful not to burn it. Then I minced some garlic, cooked it in butter, added some salt and poured the sauce on top of the fish. And its ready to eat. And oh, I also steamed some cauliflower as a side-dish. Bon appetit!

Boracay's Hidden Gem: Mama's Fish House

I've always wanted to dine at Mama's Fish House in Boracay but wasn't able to for some forgotten reasons already. Then the pandemic happened and we're in lockdown or limited travel movement for almost two years. And guess what? One of the nicest thing to happen on our recent trip to Boracay was to discover that Mama's Fish House was located just outside the beach front of our hotel- Microtel by Wyndham Boracay . Talk about serendipity!
