Starstruck With Coke Bolipata

I watched Boses, The Movie at the Podium earlier and aside from meeting Direk Ellen Ongkeko, we were also treated to a night of music from two of Casa San Miguel's prodigies- Julian Duque and Joseph; both of whom have a starring role in the indie film.

But I'm not going to talk about the film- yet. Let me just share how starstruck I am to meet Mr. Coke Bolipata of the famous Bolipata Brothers.



I grew up listening to classical music especially the violin since my father used to play it when he was alive so I enjoyed very much the small performance earlier. As for Mr. Coke Bolipata, we've met years ago. Or rather, I talked to him on the phone years ago to badger him about his curriculum vitae. I was working for Ms. Abaya of RPN 9 that time and was in the research department. I was in charge of pre-screening Artists for the show. Meeting him in person tonight brought back so many happy and wonderful memories of my first job, and my fondness of violin music.

Bolzico Beef To Go via GrabFood

Since last year, when the Covid-19 pandemic took over the world and made everything stop, most people (me included) resorted to food delivery as it is safer than going to the restaurant, grocery, or market to buy food. One such favorite delivery app is GrabFood. 

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!
