Scenes From TOYCON 2013

Its been set and decided, written in blood (imaginary) that daughter and I would attend the Toycon at SM Megamall since attending the launch at the Newport Mall last May. Please see TOYCON Launch post here. 

So today, on Father's Day-- daughter and I went to Megamall sans hubby. Will meet him for dinner in Shang- yey!


Lots of people when we arrive. The Megatrade hall crowd and cool items will turn Divisoria to shame. ;)




Daughter having a chat with one of the TOYCON organizer and comic book artist.


Another artist making popular anime drawings in watercolor!


This is a vintage Starwars toy from the 1980's.



Ayan, sa mga fan ni Superman. ;)



Daughter having a chat with Hatsune Miku, one of her favorite vocaloid character.


Mr. V, the "free hugs" guy that we saw at the Newport Mall. He was sad and forlorn then because nobody wants to accept his hugs. But today, he was mobbed- almost everyone wants to hug him. Yey Mr. V!


Daughter with some of the cos-players. Glad that she's wearing an anime-ish outfit today with a panda hat. At least she blends in well with the cos-players. :)




Cute and cuddly toys. I can spy My Melody, Pluto and Winnie the Pooh. No Hello Kitty??


Daughter taking a photo of that green slimey monster. I can see Yoda at the other end of the table.


Sophia, the youngest cos-player we've met today. She's 4 yrs old. Her mom said she started cos-playing at age 3. Wow! You have have the coolest mom. Lucky kid! :)


French robots! Well, they're made in France.



And the highlight of daughter's TOYCON 2013. Interview and pictorial with Alodia Gosiengfiao. She even got a poster signed by Alodia herself. :D



Daughter will write about her TOYCON 2013 experience but it may have to wait since tomorrow is the beginning of the school week. Will post her write-up asap. :)

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.
