Joining The VDay Crowd ;)

February 14, 2013

And I thought this year's Valentine's Day would just be normal and uneventful day since we already celebrated it last Monday but surprise, surprise.

Hubby and I opened a box of Bailey's truffles on Valentine's Eve. Actually, I was busy watching koreanovela when hubby suddenly approached me (he slept early) and gave me a kiss. Huh? Oh, Valentine's Day na! Hahaha. Ayan, huli tuloy ako na mas "sweet" si hubby. :P

Then we scheduled a late lunch (to avoid the lunch crowd) at Ristorante delle Mitre because we're craving for some crispy pata and because we are also treating Jade to a belated birthday treat. We missed going to her debut party because hubby and I had a work-related event to attend to that same night and its on the other end of the planet.

We had seafood kare-kare.





Crispy Pata. We never fail to order this whenever we dine at Mitre. Actually, it is the reason why we dine at Mitre.



Calamares. This is the first time that we ordered this. Not bad. But I still prefer the cholesterol-loaded crispy pata.



We had halo-halo for dessert and blueberry cheesecake (no photo). Two thumbs up for both!



And because its Valentine's Day, hubby surprised us with chocolates- not flowers-- thank God!



But what made the day special and romantic was witnessing someone renew their marriage vows on Valentine's Day. :)

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!
