WATCH: El Gamma Penumbra’s moving tribute to survivors of ‘Yolanda’ | ABS-CBN News.


I just had to share this.  One of the Philippines’ pride, El Gamma Penumbra, performing their tribute to the victims and survivors of the Zamboanga crisis, Cebu and Bohol earthquake, and typhoon Haiyan.

Indeed, the Filipinos had been and will always be indomitable in spirit.

Question of the Day: How much water did you drink today?

I normally drink more than 2 Liters of water everyday to keep healthy. My body is used to taking in this much water on a daily basis.  In fact,  I feel a little off whenever I don’t get to drink 2L of water everyday.

But, today, I think I will not be able to drink my daily 2L dosage of water and this is because I gave in to my cravings.  That is, I drank more than 5oo mL of Coke this afternoon.

Once or twice a month I get these cravings for certain food or drink that can only be satiated by that specific food or drink.  And this afternoon was one of those days.

After a tiring day, I craved for chicharong bulaklak (photo courtesy of


chicharong bulaklak

I have been craving for chicharong bulaklak since yesterday but the urge grew much stronger today.  So, I gave in and bought a pack.  However, chicharong bulaklak can be enjoyed best with either ice-cold beer or Coke.  So, I opted for Coke since I still had to drive home.

Well, suffice it to say craving satiated but now I have to compensate for the amount of water I did not drink because I had a huge glass of Coke.

But, the night is still young and I plan to drink another 500 mL of water before I sleep.  🙂



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.


Food truck park adventure! 🙂


Filipino feast with relatives at The Grill in Tagaytay. 🙂


A night at Aguirre st. And those are the best maki I ever tasted.


Best hand-pulled noodles ever!


Well, that’s about it. Enjoy!

No matter how many cuisines I try, nothing compares to Filipino cuisine. Well, at least for me because I am Filipino.

So, decided to try a dish that I haven’t had the chance to cook before.

Sweet and Sour Tilapia


Of course you can use other fish. You can even use fish fillet if you want. I just happen to have tilapia in our freezer.

I would consider this one a success since it tasted the way it should. Although, my fish was not fried to perfection.

One of my many weaknesses is that I have a hard time frying whole fish. 😦

I keep forgetting to say this, in case any of you want to try the dishes that I have been posting here, just let me know. I’m more than happy to share the recipes with you. 🙂
