Fatsopillar In His New Home

Daughter and I enjoyed staring at Fatsopillar and taking pictures of him (yes, we think its a boy). I guess he's been one of the most photographed caterpillar model. However, after finishing off the other leaf earlier, I decided to move him to a new calamansi plant, even if I know he will devour all of the leaves. I did try to place him in another leaf (ornamental plant) but he just smelled it and looked sad. I also gave him lagundi leaf, but still--- isnab nya! Oh wells, there goes my calamansi plants. Actually, the plant will still live, sans leaves for maybe a few weeks until new ones can grow. And I hope that by that time, Fatsopillar will have morphed into a beautiful butterfly.




That's Fatsopillar on the photo, munching a new leaf! Ang takaw nya...

And because of the eventually that Fatsopillar will turn into a butterfly someday soon, I asked daughter to read---- Hope For The Flowers by Trina Paulus. Its a very nice book. I remember my mother reading that book to me every night and then we would be talking about Stripe and Yellow.

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!
