Chicken Sunday

>> Sunday, September 10, 2017


Every Sunday, I make it a point to cook Filipino dishes because I miss eating them. I had been craving for Halang2x and the perfect Adobo, so I made some today. 


However, both Chicken Recipes required me to take off the skin before cooking. I had been doing this for many years already, but when I came here, I find that even if you take off the skin, the chicken still releases its natural oils. Meaning, there is fat in between the meat.. If I buy their free range chicken, the meat is gummy and difficult to cook. It takes so much time and energy to cook and eat it. So I vowed to buy the easy chicken. 


For my 9000 MMK, I bought two huge chickens without wings, as that is how they sell their whole chicken here, no wings :-). For this batch, saved the first layer breast meat, and divided the chickens according to my recipe. The saved meat shall be for my pasta this week. The rib cage and all unconventional parts went to the Halang2x, while the thigh and drumstick as well as the second layer breast meat went to my adobo.. Portion control at best.. And I am eating them without rice..

Unconventional Leche Flan

>> Friday, September 8, 2017



So I am far away from home, on a diet, but is craving for something I could not buy here. Bought myself the ingredients, and voila. 


I think what is really amazing about being a Filipino is that, we can easily find ways, no matter the circumstance, and especially when there is a great need or want.. I have no lanyera for my Leche Flan.. I only have foil, and reusable cans of condensed milk, lol.. 


They came out okay, and yummy.. Craving satisfied.. I will share the rest to whoever I meet tomorrow..

My Simple Fiesta Spread (No Visitors)

>> Monday, August 28, 2017


Today, in Cagayan de Oro City, people are celebrating the Feast of St. Augustine, the city's patron saint, in the Catholic faith. I am no Catholic, but my family have been celebrating, wherever we live, feast days such as today. 


And although I am millions of miles away, I also celebrate with the people in my city. My mom even asked if I have visitors, and she laughed when I said I am the only one in my room. 


Well, these are not grand, compared to what they have in the CDO. I only cooked Chicken Adobo, which, I think is better today, compared to that from my previous as I finally bought a good quality chicken. 


I also found prawns so I am totally in a festive mood.. So happy eating..

Oven Toaster White Adobo

>> Friday, July 21, 2017


It's back to those times when my oven toaster served so many purpose in my life.. hahaha.. Being far away from home just makes you miss so much about home, especially food, that you try to recreate as much of what you miss in the limits of your current situation..

But no problem, my adobo is still adobo, regardless of color, texture and taste, hahaha.. 


I am glad I have this in my room.
