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!

Michelin Star Dining at Putien, Pavilion KL

Michelin Star restaurants are suddenly multiplying especially in the Southeast Asean region with lots of homegrown restaurants getting the international recognition it deserves. One such restaurant is Putien,  whose dishes can be traced back to Fujian, China. Putien was awarded a 1-Star Michelin in 2016, this was in Singapore where the restaurant originated.

RECIPE: TKG's Brownie Balls with Cointreau Infused Cranberries

We may still be quarantined inside our homes but that doesn't mean we have to let go of our love for food. And if there's something positive that happened in our new normal, I'd say that most people (including me) have discovered the simple joys of spending more time in the kitchen. Here's my take on a classic brownie recipe made special with Cointreau.

Ooma-zing Food!

Sharing one of our resto-favorite! We've been dining here for about three years now and as much as I'd like to keep this resto a secret, it's already out in the open about how good the food is at Ooma. Ooma is a Japanese-fusion restaurant so don't expect the usual Japanese dish preparations but be ready for not only a visual feast but a fusion of east and west. For starters, we had this delightful cheesy maki. I believe this is on a limited run on the menu so I really can't recall what it's called. Crunchy and cheesy really, my daughter love this so much.
