Hello Kitty Sunday

And I thought that the store only sells anime-ish stuff but ...



Its Hello Kitty Heaven !!!




The store is called- Anime. I know, I know, very creative name for an anime store. Hehe. But believe me, anime fans, collectors and Hello Kitty addicts like me will experience nirvana upon entering the store.


I love the dolls! Kawaii !!!



Miku of Vocaloid.

Ended up buying these lovelies ... only (for now). ;)



Special thanks to Ime for introducing me to this store. Note-to-self: Must-visit-soon!

Afterwards, we had an early dinner at World Class Persian Kebab along Morato Street.


Btw, they change the name to Kebab Persian from World Class Persian Kebab. No worries, the food still tastes great, and very affordable (cheap), and the staff and tables and chairs are still the same. :)

Then we walked to Afters, along Morato Street near Roces Avenue for some coffee (tea) and dessert. This is my first time here although hubby already ate here sometime last year. J, the owner of Afters is the tai-chi buddy of Irene had a friendly chat with our group.



Hubby, daughter and I had some gelato ... caramel popcorn and I forgot what's the other flavor (senior moment!).


Yummy choices.


I love the "feel" of the place. Its not your usual stressful coffeeshop environment. This has a more homey-feel.

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!

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.
