Date With Spock And Kirk

Daughter was so excited that she woke up early today. It is because we have some movie vouchers at RWM (thank you, tita B!) and because she wanted to eat donuts at Cafe Maxims. Please see Maxims Donuts for official photo.



We've been dreaming of these donuts since we saw it on RWM's fb page. I was thinking--- maybe its better than J.Co, a bit cheaper if you buy a piece (P35.00) compared to other donuts which costs P40+.




Pistachio and Choco-mint Donuts. Flavor tastes okay but it has a bread-like consistency than donut. No melt-in-the-mouth thingy. Soft bread with flavor- hehehe. Also, its small !!! Smaller in diameter than J.Co and Krispy Kreme. :P Too disappointed to order all the flavors.

But before that, we got sidetracked by McDonald's because of their Hello Kitty Toys. Hurray for Happy Meals!!!


And we brought home these two lovely babies ---


As for the movie, we ended up watching Star Trek even if we didn't want to watch it at first because we both think that its too boyish. However, the other choice was Bromance. :P But I am happy and proud to say that I enjoyed watching it. Action-packed although there were really some violent scenes that made me tell daughter to close her eyes and explained that this is just a movie. Its pretend violence. Sorry, no spoilers! ;)

Afterwards, we had our fill of karaage pops at Toribox (current fave hangout).


Then bought some items from The Little Store and DEC before going to Ola's house just in time for dinner. Grilled hito and sinigang na tilapia. Yum yum!

P.S.

Had lunch at the VIP Genting Buffet with my aunt B and cousin J two days ago. Here's what I ate. :)


California Maki and Shrimp Salad. The maki was surprisingly good. As for the shrimp salad, I thought the white strips were noodles, atchara pala. Ang asim! :(


Spinach with sesame oil, cheese, very hard to chew pork loin and soft bun. Love the cheese!


Dried date, soft bun, macaroni salad, and cheese. The macaroni tastes so-so.



Chocolate something, slice of melon, choco-chip cookie. Best!


There are a lot of food choices from the Genting Buffet such as rice, noodles, chicken dishes, soup, etc. but I don't feel like pigging-out. Most of my clothes are complaining already! Unlimited tea, juice, iced tea and coffee (several choices) also.

Michelin Star Dining at Putien, Pavilion KL

Michelin Star restaurants are suddenly multiplying especially in the Southeast Asean region with lots of homegrown restaurants getting the international recognition it deserves. 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.
