RECIPE: TKG's Charlie Chan-Inspired Pasta

We usually eat pasta at least once in a fornight and I love that I can make simple sauces with whatever ingredients we have at home. I also love the fact that you can whip up a pasta in around 30 minutes. 

Sharing here my Charlie Chan-inspired pasta.


Pasta 150g
Shredded Chicken
Ginger, sliced
Small Onion, sliced
Peppercorn, crushed
Chili Flakes, as needed
Ketchup sachet, 3 or more
Olive Oil
Salt to taste

*** I just used the ingredients I found at home such as the shredded chicken which was actually a roast chicken leftover. It would taste nicer if you add some oyster sauce, which I don't have at the time when I made this pasta. Using sesame oil is also possible. For the pasta, I usually allot 50g per person.


1. Boil the pasta until almost cooked. Remove water so that it will still be al dente when you add the sauce. 
2. Stir-fry the ginger in oil, add the onion slices once the ginger turns a bit brown. 
3. Add the shredded chicken and peanuts to the ginger and onion.
4. Flavor with peppercorn, salt. 
5. Add pasta and the ketchup, and toss until pasta is covered with the mixture. 
6. Add chili flakes.
7. Serve. Bon appetit!

*** You can opt to add the peanuts last if you want it crunchy.

NEW RESTO ALERT: Hà Nội Phố (Ha Noi Pho)

Makati has been a go-to place for my family and I to grab a meal or sometimes just to have a cup of coffee. Though, really, it’s mostly just us visiting our favorite spots. Recently, my mom went out of town so it was just my dad and I who went out for dinner.

Salcedo Market x Legaspi Market Tour

We haven't visited the weekend markets for years so I was giddy with excitement because I was able to visit both Salcedo and Legaspi markets this month, thanks to our Dusit Thani Manila staycation . To differentiate the two, Salcedo market  is held every Saturday at the Jaime Velasquez Park in Salcedo Village Makati while Legaspi market is held every Sunday at the Corinthian Carpark in Legaspi Village Makati. Since we were coming from Dusit Thani Manila, it was quite a long walk but it was early in the morning (around 8AM) and even Ayala and Makati Avenues were still without cars. Wow!
