Shinjuku Girl With The Manila Girls

Chay graced us with her presence one fine Wednesday afternoon at the Mall of Asia. Actually, this is my first time to see her again after almost 25 years. Hahaha, there goes my age.

She's now based in Tokyo and is managing a coffeeshop there.



Resto-pick was Sbarro since its the first resto when we entered the mall. I also haven't eaten at Sbarro for quite some time now and I'm curious if the food still tastes the same.

I had the penne pasta with white sauce. Truth be told, I wasn't really able to savor each bite because we were all busy talking and catching up. But its good I think because I was able to finish the food on my plate. ;)










And last but not the least, domo arigato Chay-san for the pasalubongs. :)


Ayan, Hello Kitty overload na naman ako. :D

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.
