Yabu-ness & Swensen's Day

It is not always that "I" gets to join us for breakfast or lunch or even just plain lakwatcha because of the tweenies. But today was an exception because it is Report Card Day.

I'm happy and proud to say that daughter's marks and general average are more than okay and she ranked 12th in class. Not bad, not bad. Hehe. Actually, I think its great since she studies on her own and I seldom check if she's doing her homework or not, not check if she's reviewing for quizzes/test or doing something else that she's not supposed to do. But she did well, and I'm a proud mummy!


So after getting our kids report cards from their respective teachers, J and I went to SM MOA to meet up with "I." And since we got there ahead of her, we enjoyed a bit (and another bit, and another bit) of shopping at Uniqlo. Chanced upon some skirts and shorts being sold at 70% off. WOW!

Lunch was at Yabu. We were supposed to dine at Tokyo Cafe but the waiting line was kinda longish and we were really famished. Luckily, we got a table as soon as we entered Yabu which was just above Tokyo Cafe.




I had the 90g Rosu Katsu, my default order here when I feel like dieting(?). Then I washed it down with tons of tea. As always, Yabu did not disappoint. The crew and manager was also friendly. Two thumbs up! :)

Afterwards, we went to Swensen's for dessert.





Because we were still full from our Yabu lunch, we just chose from the kiddie ice-cream creations.




"I" and I both ordered the princess while J got Mr. & Mrs. San. And yes, you can choose from the many different ice-cream flavors available. I had the green tea- yum!

One such restaurant is Putien,  whose dishes can be traced back to Fujian, China. Putien was awarded a 1-Star Michelin in 2016, this was in Singapore where the restaurant originated. It has then expanded with several restaurants in SG and in other countries such as Malaysia, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and China.

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.
