Breakfast time here in Sydney. What we got this morning: Shredded green mango with tomato slices salad and smoked fish. Love this combination! Though, still nothing beats our native green mango in Philippines.
These were our lunch last Wednesday in celebration of my birthday. We got Sauteed Kangkong as well! I was so full, but wishing those crispy pork thighs were as yummy as the ones given to us by our beautiful friend during holidays! and you know who you are honey! :-9
I got home late after spending some few hours with colleagues at work. We had these on top for dinner. The third one is one of my local favorite recipes. Though it would've been better if it was a bit spicy as how it should be cooked. But anyways, still had a lot to eat! Have a good night!
It was a simple surprise celebration for my birthday and look what we had to celebrate with... Beef barbecue and fried calamari! Got Smirnoff double black to go with 'em! Let's drink to that yeah yeah!
We (with niece and nephew) came to visit my father's grave in Makati early Monday morning. Right after, we went straight to Greenbelt. We dropped by the chapel and sat on the park for awhile. Enjoying the air blowing lightly. Sky was nice and weather was not that hot. We enjoyed looking at the kids playing by the fountain. I wanted to take pictures of them but parents might call my attention for that. One mom blew some bubbles over the kids. Such a wonderful moment when little kids tried to burst bubbles. Benches were occupied as well as the tables from the coffee shops behind us.
Look at how the scenery made on this old man's face. It was my niece's hand below the photo, by the way. I really enjoyed the day, like a break off from the rat race. I definitely need more of this kind of day.
And finally, i was able to get back and dined here. @Mesa, Greenbelt. Good though that we were able to get seats because most of the tables were reserved already and the resto just opened that time.
These are what they used to light up the place. I like the ambiance. Like what they say it is a Filipino Moderne. I wanted to take one of those tables but already reserved.
We ordered for Pork barbecue, Beef and Tripe in peanut sauce and shrimp paste which locally know as "kare-kare", and Steamed supreme beef. Kids just loved how the beef so tender.
Though i wanted to try other dishes like the catfish flakes, crispchon, stuffed squid, baby squid in olive oil and other shell recipes, i just simply can't. Kids are so fussy with food but i am so glad this time they really enjoyed them. They finished them all up and it's worth it.
Craving for this! I went to the market and got with me native bananas, purple yam, sweet potatoes, glutinous rice which i made into balls, coco milk, sugar and vanilla extract. I was able to make a medium potful of mixed crops in coco milk. One of the native delicacies i like.
I tried out this new fresh spring roll or locally known as "Lumpiang Sariwa". This dish is now trending in the food industries as well us in the franchising business. Let me show you how is it before i pour the sauce on.
The wrap is green in color which i am not so sure how this was made. This fresh spring roll is made of shredded young coco shoots, Indonesian grass herbs, Moroccan ground nuts, chili flakes which is optional (i like a little spice in it), fresh lettuce and rolled to wrap.
Sauce is made of brown sugar, cornstarch and minced garlic. This ones in the box were freshly rolled and extra sauce were given per serving. I want to try others as well coz this one got like a herbal taste from the Indonesian grass herb.
