Viva Pit Senyor

January 20, 2013
Intramuros, Manila


Because we've been craving for some crispy pata, and because we've already been to Greenhills the night before- hubby, daughter and I agreed to have merienda cena at Ristorante delle Mitre in Intramuros. Also, I've been itching to practice my photography skills which I think (and feel) have gotten rusty.


Daughter and I chanced upon an ati-atihan group practicing in the baluarte near father blanco's garden. And they're wearing colorful costumes. Upon closer inspection, most of them had Sto. Nino. Perfect! Sinulog Festival, Intramuros Edition ;)





It feels good to take photos (not food related) again. It brings back memories when hubby (my bf, then) and I were practicing our newfound photography tricks from Mang Dans, our photography guru. Studying photography in the early 90's was very costly and you can't even see your pictures until its been developed. We also learned how to develop film with a D-I-Y/portable darkroom! Cool, right?






This kid is one of the numerous Sto. Nino's. Or should I say Nina? Can you spot why? ;)


I'm glad that she gamely posed in front of the camera. Her shy smile turned out nicely, too! 




I love the smile on the kids faces. Innocent. Serene. Very Sto. Nino-like. I'm betting adults will have difficulty with these kind of smiles.





San Agustin Church.


 
Procession was supposed to start 7pm but got delayed. It's almost 8pm when the carozas left the church. Daughter and I joined the procession up to Victoria Street only. We were walking beside the last caroza (see photo below) and even had a friendly chat with the parish priest and was given a blessing before we parted from the procession.

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! 

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!
