It’s always fun to try out new recipes. But it’s more fun to do adjustments on a recipe you’ve never tried and make it your own, especially if you have absolutely know idea how it’s going to turn out.

So, let’s night, that’s what I did to an egg noodle recipe I found online. As is my usual approach, I had to make adjustments as some ingredients will make the dish expensive.

I made my adjustments and hoped for the best.

The past few weeks passed in a blur.  I am either home late or too tired to post anything at all.

But I feel that I still owe the foodies who follow me to post photos of my latest food adventures eventhough it is late.

Feast shared with a cousin.  This one is at Oki Oki, a Japanese restaurant.

I, normally, go for a jog every Sunday mornings. After the morning jog, my father and I go to Legazpi Sunday Market.

It’s like a flea market and there are a lot of items for sale as well as different types of food.
