Practice Lang :)

February 24, 2013

Ate Ramona, my gorgeous cousin from France, celebrated her birthday here in the Philippines. Actually, she had tons of birthday parties organized by her loving friends so she reserved her special day just for us, family members. We had lunch at Gloria Maris, Greenhills.

And because daughter will celebrate her birthday a day after, naki-pose na rin sya sa Hello Kitty cake. Hahaha.

I love how nice the Hello Kitty cake was done. The cake was made by Teacher Cake. :)





And there's a story behind the Hello Kitty cake. I think it was originally Carmina's (cousin) cake but since she's forever on a diet, she gave it to Ola as a Valentine's Day present. Ola just loves Hello Kitty and hearts.

Imagine Carmina's surprise when Ola brought out the cake, and said that its just been sitting on the fridge since V-Day. Uh oh! Is it still edible? Ola said she didn't have the heart to eat (murder) Hello Kitty. *sniff *

So after a lot of finger-pointing on who will knife Hello Kitty (Us, girls doesn't want to do the deed) so it was Paolo and hubby who happily knifed Hello Kitty. They beheaded Hello Kitty first. Sorry, no photos. So sad!

The cake was still surprisingly edible but almost dry. I was the only one who took a brave bite then Ola mentioned that we should've kept the cake intact until her birthday on November. O-kay ... I think the fondant will last that long but not the cake.

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!
