EVENT: TOYCON 2013

Daughter and I got so excited when I saw RWM's fb post earlier today. TOYCON 2013 at the Newport Mall.

You see, daughter loves watching animes and reading mangas and is also a frustrated cosplayer. Nah, she haven't joined one yet except that she dressed up (or rather I dressed her up) as Sadako when she's still in nursery (trick-or-treat event in school), if that counts. Of course, most of her classmates were dressed up as princesses, fairies, pirates, winnie the pooh characters, etc. All cutey cuteys so she was not happy with her costume; but she did win a price for being the scariest. Hahaha

Then several years back (2008), we attended the debut party of a friend's daughter and theme was cosplay. Yey! Unfortunately though, guests weren't asked to come in costume and I have a small part on the program since the celebrant- Alexis, is my goddaughter.

The early birds posing in front of the camera. These kids belongs to the first cosplayers group in the country and most of them are professional cosplayers now.



The one wearing the yellow suit is the celebrant's brother. He is now a professional cosplayer. One of his  latest gig was with Derek Ramsay, as Kidlat, during the show's mall tour and premier night.


The debutante dancing with Darth Vader. How cool is that?



So on May 25, I'd like to invite everyone especially kids and the kids-at-heart to head off to Newport Mall at the Resorts World Manila for the launch of 2013 TOYCON. Event will be start from 12nn till 10pm. Famous Filipina cosplayer- Alodia Gosiengfiao will grace the event. Hope to see you there and don't forget to bring your cameras or wear a costume.

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.
