RECIPE: TKG's Tea Eggs

Daughter's school celebrates Chinese New Year annually with a school program and a party. So this year, instead of buying machang or hakaw or siomai, I convinced daughter that I'll make tea eggs for her class. 

I searched the internet for recipes and asked some friends how to go about it. Then I found out that its easy as saying 1-2-3. Really!



2 dozen eggs (hard boiled)
Black tea
10 Star anise
10 Clavo de comer
sugar and salt


Boil the tea including all ingredients in a pot that will fit the 2 dozen eggs. Then crack the shell of the eggs without removing the shell. This is because you want your egg to look like marble. Also, the flavor of the tea seeps in better that way. Boil for an hour then let it sit for another 2 hours. 


Ready-to-eat tea eggs ... yum!

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!

Bolzico Beef To Go via GrabFood

Since last year, when the Covid-19 pandemic took over the world and made everything stop, most people (me included) resorted to food delivery as it is safer than going to the restaurant, grocery, or market to buy food. One such favorite delivery app is GrabFood.
